Good Eats:)

Are you hungry?

How about this.

No I am not sharing a recipe to make this, I am sharing where to go have it served to you, Oh Yes!!

Deep in the heart of Texas, there is an awesome small town called Fredericksburg.  It is just down the road from Luckenbach  (about 13 miles) 

Remember that awesome song by Waylon Jennings
 "Luckenbach, Texas, Back to the Basics of Love"?
 The only two things in life that make it worth livin'
Is guitars that tune good and firm feelin' women
I don't need my name in the marquee lights
I got my song and I got you with me tonight
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs and
Newberry's train songs and Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain't nobody feelin' no pain

So baby, let's sell your diamond ring
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is choking me
In your high society you cry all day
We've been so busy keepin' up with the Jones
Four car garage and we're still building on
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Another one of my favorites (why do I love songs that always have a couple running away from it all? hehehe)  Such as my Fellows ringtone. (Big City by Merle Haggard)

One of these days, my Fellow and I will make a break and write our own song as we get away from it all:)

OK, now where was I?   
Oh yes, we are all hungry and are in Fredericksburg, Texas.
This is just an amazing area and has the most awesome shops and restaurants and is rich in German history.

 This lovely place is my favorite German eatery of all time:)

Silver Creek Beer Garden and Grill
Authentic German and Texcelctic Cusine

This gorgeous tree is a bois d'arc tree.  It shades the entire patio which is located on the front of the eatery.  You can just sit and drink great German Beer and watch the people walk by on the sidewalk.  

Sometimes if you are lucky there is live music (yes we had an awesome guitar player that serenaded us as we ate lunch:)  We tried a few of the German Beers and of course I ate all of the German Pepperwurst Sandwich (aka Hot Dog)  that I teased you with in the first photograph and did you notice the homemade sauerkraut?

We tried several German beers such as:

1. Optimator Bouble Bock-Dark
2. Franziskaner Hefeweiss-light w/orange
3. New Belgium Sunshine wheat

All three were awesome:)  And our little waitress was so helpful in helping us select them.  She even took our picture:)  What a great kid!! (yes everyone under 30 is a kid and soon it will be everyone under 40, LOL)  

We are so awesome together:)  I love being retired with my sweetie:)

These are our views as we were enjoying our visit.

And of course I asked my sweetie to take my picture. How funny I didn't set down my beer for the great photo opp:)  Lol

So chart your voyage and as soon as you can, visit this awesome place in the Heart of the Great State of Texas,
Fredericksburg, Texas!

Coming soon, more pictures and information of the 
Pacific War Museum in Fredericksburg:)

  4. We just went to Fredericksburg for vacation (to climb Enchanted Rock)! We also went to New Braunfels and San Antonio on that trip. I had THE BEST spice rum filled chocolate in Fredericksburg. I'm sorry we didn't stop at the Silver Creek Beer Garden. Will have to remember next time (planning to do it all over again next year).
