“Fantastic BBQ!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

This place is family owned, as most restaurants are in the Boerne area. Excellent brisket and ribs! A very friendly place. Great to pick up and take home. Convenient, right in the middle of town.

“We would go elsewhere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

We are from NC so admit to a little bias when it comes to Q.This was certainly not what we expected.

The atmosphere was rustic and has a lot of character. Food is served in a sort of cafeteria line and seating is of your choice. Service was quick and very polite. So far, no problems.

The food was not what we had expected. My wife had BBQ chicken and I had prime rib and brisket. All were dry and overcooked to a point of being almost tasteless, in fact, without the rubs, which were very good, there would have been no taste at all. The prime rib was also almost cold.

i have sworn off BBQ until I get back to NC.

“Worst in Texas. Really.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

Pass this by. Don't stop. Have tried twice and have thrown the leftovers away TWICE. Brisket is clearly not low or slow, it's tough and tasteless. Baby backs, while tender, had no seasoning. Sauce is thin and tastes of ketchup. Yes, the very young staff is friendly. But someone with some smoke in their veins needs to cook the meat. And cut it. They even trimmed off the top layer of the brisket -- with what little flavor there was -- leaving us with something resembling boiled beef. Yuck.

“Friendly staff, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

Wanted some local bbq, so we ate at Fritze's. several meat choices (turney, brisket, pork, and ham). While I chose turkey, they apologetically came to the table to day it wasn't going to happen. No problem, I chose brisket and they threw in a peach cobbler for the inconvenience (which it wasn't). Paper plates, towels on the tables, and a good read about the family's Texas Ranger history, Fritze's is a good place to enjoy lunch.

“Great Family Friendly BBQ in Boerne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

We enjoy Fritze's about 2 times a month and have been to several events that have been catered by Fritze's. They do a consistently great job with their BBQ and the owner is very involved in making sure that you're happy!! Love the Friday night Prime rib!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
