Hill Top Cafe
10661 Hwy. 87 N., Fredericksburg, 78624, 830/997-8922
A blackboard menu offers a range of ethnicities, from Greek to Cajun/Creole to Southern comfort. Start with some blue crab cakes; move on toward the Port Arthur shrimp gumbo; make a pivotal decision at the entree fork in the road between a Blind Pig sandwich or chicken-fried steak; and arrive, still willing and able, at the blackberry pie and Italian cream cake finish line.

The longest continuously operated Drafthouse, the Alamo Drafthouse Village opened in 2001 on Anderson Lane before Anderson Lane was cool. The four-screen cinema specializes in first-run features, with Sony 4K digital projection allowing for both RealD 3D and 48 FPS screenings. Plus, with much of the American Genre Film Archive stored here, it also has 35mm screenings. A recent revamp added new padded chairs and shared tables for food and drink from the Drafthouse’s extensive menu delivered during screenings, and a new patio adds outdoor drinking from the bar.
