“The best onion rings anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

Porky's is a local favorite... a little out of the way, on the farthest end of Main Street- and you have to be watching for the sign in front of the old house, or you will miss it! The burgers are great, the home made buns are the best, but don't forget to order onion rings! My husband and I go there just because they are the closest thing to old fashioned, hand battered fresh onion rings (no frozen) - because they ARE fresh! Get there early or late, or you won't get to park in the back... and prepare to order at the counter and wait for your meal to be delivered to the table. This place is a hidden gem!

“Pretty Good Burgers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

The burgers were very good...fresh, hot and tasty. The onion rings were another story. Lots of batter, over cooked and you could hardly taste any onion. Porky's is in an old house, but has lots of charm. Could be a lot nicer. Don't like paying for re-fills on drinks. I would go back and try some other items on their menu...but my favorite in Fredericksburg for burgers, onion rings and free re-fills is Charlie's Grill & BBQ on Washington. Best burgers in the Hill Country in my opinion. Now they have added BBQ, home made potato chips and yummy peach cobbler.

“Great burgers but wait until you try . . . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2011

the best pastrami outside of New York . . .a classic chicken salad sandwich with BIG chunks of chicken . . . . pulled pork sandwiches with homemade bbq sauce that's about perfect . . . onion rings to make you swoon with delight. And owners that really care about serving high-quality food. (And just about the best iced tea in town, too.)
