This seems like a hole-in-the-wall place but I guess it's very popular. I had a great chili meal and a beer and we loved the live music. The chili was awesome - I'm a chili lover. I would love to go back.

Loved the live music and walk up service for food and drinks. Plenty of empty seats on a Thursday night. Lots of families. We had a pulled pork sandwich, chili, mahi-mahi sandwich, and chalupas. All were good, but the atmosphere was better. It was a nice stop for our trip with international guests.

Took the family (wife, 3 kids) here during Spring Break. It was our 3rd restaurant in Fredericksburg during our 3 day trip, and I'd say the kids enjoyed Hondo's the best by far. The outside area is perfect for March weather, though I'd imagine by summer time it gets pretty hot. Ordering in line took quite a while during 6PM... More

Stopped in for lunch because of the nice patio area, food was just average. No flavor in the chicken quesadilla and my husband did not even eat all his brisket because it was so bad. Although there is no service the people I charge are quick to clean tables for seating.

We went for a late lunch much and had chicken quesadillas and pork with green chilies quesadilla. We also had onion straws. Everything was so good. The atmosphere was fun with music and jokes going on in the background. Couples were country dancing and having a great time. Love this place and recommend it highly. Every plate that went by...

We met family (7 of us) here on a weeknight during spring break. Snagged a big table about 5:30 because TA reviews said it could get crowded. Good advice. By 6p, we stood in line to order food for 20-25 minutes. There is only one order taker. Food was ready in about 15 min. The sandwiches were really good. I... More

We decided to visit Hondo's when they have a band playing. They have an indoor stage as well as a outdoor stage in their courtyard. You need to plan to get there early as the line becomes long inside to order your food. They have a nice menu but we always order their burger and fries along with a beer.... More

Hondo's is as not bad but the food was definitely not great. Much better options at other places. If you are visiting for multiple days, it's worth the stop. If you are are in Fredericksburg for only a few days, go somewhere else. The design of the restaurant makes it extremely crowded and awkward to get your food. We had... More

Great patio. Another great spot on the West End. Stopped by after the Pioneer Museum for snacks and refreshment. Outdoor patio is perfect. Order at the bar, take your wireless buzzer, and find a seat. I bet this place is hoping at night

Food was worth the wait. The only part I disliked is that you stand in a line to order, then because it was so busy (spring break week) you had to stand around and hope for a and watch people eat, and make a mad dash for a table when people stood up. People only think about themselves generally. So... More
