Hill Top Cafe ~ Fredericksburg, Texas 2

TX Hilltop_1498

Searching out local hangouts, dives and good eats is a part of traveling that I adore. And I found a winner just ten miles north of downtown Fredericksburg, TX ~ Hill Top Cafe. Not only are you going to experience the totally quirky and “garage style” decor of Hill Top but, the food is exceptional and the music is just as satisfying. Founded in 1980 by bluesman Johnny Nicholas and his wife Brenda, their love of good food and music brought a new dimension to the Texas Hill Country. “Inconveniently located in the middle of nowhere…” You can feel the sense of community when you walk in the front door of the converted gas station and roadhouse. Everyone is family at Hill Top and friends gather to experience the sumptuous food and fantastic Texas music. “Johnny and Brenda both believe that anyone who shares their passions for all things real is part of the family. You are more than welcome, ‘cause like the old saying goes: “If you grin, you’re in!”

The interior of Hill Top is “over-the-top” fun

You won’t get bored looking at all the vintage paraphernalia that not only surrounds the walls but, look up at the ceiling!
