Two days later, we found out we could meet Georgeann and her daughter Sally in Clear Springs, Texas for lunch at the restaurant in town.
Next, we headed for Hill Country and spent a few days in Fredricksburg. As you probably know, the area was settled by Germans and other eastern European immigrants back in the mid 1800's. Pam and I lived in Germany for three years and love German food. So we decided to splurge and eat lunch and dinner at some local German restaurants. I looked at online reviews and did not find any 5 star accolades. Most were rated about 3 (out of five.)
First we tried Der Lindenbaum. It is right on Main Street in the historic downtown area.
I don't know what we were expecting, but it was just OK. Nothing that memorable. As we expected, it was pretty expensive so all in all, I'd give it a 3 out of 5. Not sure we'd be back - too many other restaurants in town to try!
Even so we were not deterred and had already scouted out Friedhelm's Bavarian Inn and Restaurant on the edge of town.
The next we went over to Luckenbach Texas for lunch which is about 10 miles away. We were so close we had to go see where "Willie and Waylon and the boys…" had been. I read up on it and they said no lunch was served there but we thought surely they must have something.
There was a little store/post office and a bar out back. The whole town is more like a bar and a small neighborhood. It was about 11:30 when we got there and sure enough - no food. We could get a beer and a small bags of snacks, but not hot dog or hamburger or anything. Looks like a fun place for happy hour or an evening concert (they have a bigger stage, big parking lot and area for the really big events and dances nearby). But for lunch on a scale of 1 to 5 I'd have to forgo a rating --- and we went back to the RV for lunch.
So that's a quick look at some places we've eaten in the last week. More on the Hill Country in another post.
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
