Never been to TX let alone the Hill Country, but the list of want to visit places include Franklins, Muellers Louie and John, Opies, Salt Lick, City Market, Blacks, Cooper's, Smitty's to name a few in no particular order.

Some day I'll cross a trip through TX off my bucket list, along with the Carolina's, Kansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, Tennessee etc.

EZ, A trip to Austin and you can hit most of those.

Halftime, so.many good "hidden" joints out that way it's hard to come up with one. Try looking at TX Monthly, they are pretty spot on- all EZ' s are on their top 50. I have been to several: Salt Lick, Franklin's, Stanley's (in Tyler) and all are amazing and TX Monthly rates them the same as I would (except I give Stanley's a 5).

I envy your trip, stuck in VA and F'burg,TX is just a bit down the road from where I call home. Ironic I live just outside of Fredericksburg VA now.

Hope you have a good trip.

Chris

if you are in Fredricksburg, then Coopers is 45 minutes north in Llano. You could go through there driving from Irving but it is the longest of the 3 routes my phone came up with. (only by a few minutes)

It would take about an Hour to get to Opie's. Very similar to Coopers, especially since he worked there.

1.5 hours puts you in Austin. There is a branch of Blacks here so you could save the extra 30-40 minutes it would take to get to Lockhart. There is also an offshoot of Blacks that was opened by the grandkids or something like that. Of course there is also a Coopers here.

Stiles switch would be my vote since it is good, has a much shorter line, AC and Beer.

Pretty sure TX Monthly listed a place in Kerville which is 30 minutes south from Fredricksburg.

Other than that couldn't say.
