Great Restaurant in Fredericksburg

October 9th, 2012 by Lynn MacWithey

After 18 years as innkeepers, our favorite restaurant is still Mamacitas.  Located just two blocks from the Pacific War Museum, they serve great Tex-Mex, steaks, and fried shrimp.  You wouldn’t ordinarily order American food at a  Mexican food restaurant, but you can’t beat their steaks and shrimp – Caesar salad and sides included – for under $20.  Constant tea, chip, and salsa refills, and a roving manager make all the right ingredients for a pleasant, affordable dinner!  Don’t forget the great Margaritas too!  Das Garten Haus guests always enjoy it!


Fredericksburg Food and Wine Fest

October 5th, 2010 by Lynn MacWithey

This is probably my favorite festival.  One day, October 23rd from 12-7 PM.  Many Texas wineries represented.  The weather is great, and the music is a combination of  Hill Country, a little folk, and old rock and roll.  Texas food purveyors set out tastes of their products and everyone has a great time!  New wineries keep cropping up all the time, so come taste what Fredericksburg has to offer.  Have yourself a big breakfast, and then head over to Marketplatz for the afternoon!
