Food was good and prompt in coming. Server did not get my order correct but finished the meal as served. Several very wide and steep stairs to get to the door. Did not see a HC ramp but could have been there.

You have to find it because I thought the GPS was leading us to the hotel but it is right behind it. Cute little building with a few dozen tables. Prices were pretty reasonable for what you get. Two meals for lunch with tip included was around $30 and it was good sized portions. I had a hard time picking... More

Behind the hotel on Highway 16 must try it. Good food at a reasonable price I'd say the best restaurant on Bandera! !

Wow the reviews are all over the place for this establishment. We had a good time here once and so returned again after church one Sunday. They weren’t very busy yet the service was a little slow, but friendly. My catfish fillets were excellent, cooked just right and filled with flavor. My wife’s chicken fried steak wasn’t five stars, but... More

I'd give Brick's 3.5 stars if that was an option. We visited Bandera to check out their new Natural History Museum and tried Brick's for lunch. My son and I had burgers and fries which were prepared to our liking. Not greasy and all condiments and toppings were fresh. My husband opted for a salad plate, which was mediocre. We... More

Our experience here was beyond ridiculous! My daughter ordered rootbeer and they came back and told us they were out of rootbeer. My mom ordered the king Ranch chicken enchiladas. They came back and told her they were out of those. My dad ordered the chicken fried steak. After waiting for 20 minutes, they told us they were out of... More
