Hill Top - outside Fredericksburg

Just thought I would share a nice delight for visiting the Hill Country this summer.

Do yourself a favor and stop by Hill Top Cafe outside Fredericksburg. A must is to start the table out with a couple of orders of Oysters Bruton. Think of a pan fried oysters with a delicious spicy sauce that I know includes Pick A Pepper sauce and Tiger Sauce with some Garlic. They will also do shrimp in that style as well if you ask.

For those of us who really enjoy Boudin but live outside of LA and East Texas where it is more common, Hll Top also makes their own Boudin. One is regular, and the other is a Seafood Boudin that carried a nice kick of heat on it.

The rest of the menu is great as well. I love to take visitors there because of the great setting of the restaurant in this old gas station in the middle of nowhere.

  1. Thanks for the review. I go to that area quite a bit and it is good to have options. i have eaten mainly at the German places in FB, except for a place that is more upscale that I think is called Birdsnest. It is on 87 as well. Pretty good food, but not execeptional. You get a lot though, which is important to some people.

      Yes, thanks. I also am a fan of Hill Top Cafe, and have recommended it often on CH. But the last time I did, somebody posted that Hill Top seemed to have, well um, gone downhill. Glad to hear that you liked it. That gives me hope that it might be still on top of the hill.
