Food travel continues to grow, as more travelers than ever search for a taste of place. Perhaps as a result of their German pioneer heritage and culture of farmers gathering in town to socialize weekends, Fredericksburg, Texas, has preserved this welcoming sense of hospitality, gemütlichkeit as it is known in the German tradition.

Eating well and grabbing a refreshing drink, especially when the mercury tops 100-degrees, is a tradition upon which the thriving tourism industry is based here in Texas Hill Country. It’s a perfect side trip if you’re headed to the Mother Earth News Fair in Belton, Texas.

“Fredericksburg offers a complete tour of the diversity of Texas cuisine, from traditional German cuisine harkening back to the original settlers of this area to Southern influenced food,” shares Ernie Loeffler, President of the Fredericksburg Convention & Visitor Bureau. “Increasingly you will find area chefs using local farm-raised fare creatively in anything from tacos to pie.” There’s no shortage of creative cuisine in Fredericksburg, often taking a classic menu and shaking it up with innovative twists and fresh, local ingredients.
