“Good food at a good price in an otherwise expensive Fredericksburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2010

If you like burgers & fries etc., and a wide variety of other foods as well, then you'll like Porky's. Prices are very reasonable for Fredericksburg, which is a pleasant surprise in an otherwise overpriced tourist town. Another plus is that Porky's is located at the west end of town where parking is not a problem, at the intersection of highways 290 and 87, next to the post office. Their hours are a little odd; 11-4 mon.-wed. & Sat., 11-8 thur. & friday.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2010

If you are looking for good hamburgers, good fries, and good onion rings.......this is the place to go. We liked it. Our friends had been here before and were disappointed that writing on the wall wasn't allowed anymore. They found it fun to read while eating.
No complaints.

“Porky's rocks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2009

Most excellent - -I had the flaming pork (spicy) sandwich and fries. My buddy had a cheeseburger and onion rings. The onion rings are HUGE. Nit to mention great.
If you come to Fredcity you gotta do Porky's.

“Cool Burger Joint!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2009

Wanted a good old fashioned burger and saw this place while driving on Main St. Pulled in the empty parking lot and unfortunately they weren't open at 5:45 p.m. on a Tuesday :-( Decided to stop back by around lunch time the next day and saw a big OPEN sign hanging out front :-) Cool place, very friendly folks and good food at fair prices.

The small cheeseburger and grilled chicken sandwich were really good. Picked the "skin on" fries and they were great! We also saw the gigantic onion rings at another table and they looked delicious. It's true that drink refills are not free but we had the small ice tea (which was decent sized) and didn't feel pinched by giving up another quarter for the refill (soft drink refills are more). Just drop you refill money in the piggy bank on the counter and fill 'er up again! :-)

Be sure to take a pen or marker and put your autograph on the wall if you can find an open space! :-D It's all part of the Porky's experience.... give it a try when you visit Fredericksburg.

Days/Hours as of this posting are: Mon, Tue, Wed and Sat. 11:00 - 4:00....Thurs/Fri 11:00-8:00. Menu items include burgers,chicken, hot dogs, fries, tots, onion rings, etc.

One thing we found out on this trip to Fredericksburg was that every eatery in town has different days/hours they are open for business. This wasn't the first or last place we went to eat that wasn't open when we arrived. We could have saved time by calling ahead but the town isn't that big and there are lots of places to dine so we didn't lose much time moving on to another eatery. If you are on a tight time schedule or only want a particular type of food then call ahead if possible.
