Fredericksburg is a fun little city west of Austin with a German heritage that it celebrates. With this German heritage, you expect some good food and beer. Silver Creek Beer Garden and Grille is one great choice for food in town. We stopped for lunch and everything was really delicious -- the sausage plate was overflowing, and the sides of German potato salad and red cabbage were perfect. The schnitzel plate that we had was excellent and filling, and every other plate that got delivered to other tables looked great. And the shady beer garden was an excellent place to relax -- even on a 100 degree day, there was a nice breeze and it was a good place to eat and listen to their live music.
