BBQ Loop

   For many people, BBQ is no laughing matter and borders on a religious experience for some. We’ll take some winding and scenic backroads such as the Willow Loop to Llano for lunch at the world famous Cooper’s BBQ. Cooper’s has been featured on Food Network several times (Bobby Flay etc.) Having been there several times personally, I can assure you it lives up to the hype. After gorging ourselves on some of the world’s finest BBQ, we will saddle up and head South past Enchanted Rock State Park. From there we will cross over through time and space into Fredericksburg.

   Fredericksburg is a fascinating little town founded over a 160 years ago by German Pioneers. Much of central Texas was settled by German immigrants and their culture has remained in the form of amazing beer, jägerschnitzel, and Deutches Schokolade (German Chocolate).  Fredericksburg is also home to some unexpectedly awesome shopping. Granite Tables, Gem stone globes, wineries, leathers, and many specialty sweets stores await you. Should you be lucky enough to visit during peach season, you will have to get a Fredericksburg peach or 20. They are incredibly sweet and possibly one of the finest things to come from hill country soil. After your memorable time at Cooper’s and Fredericksburg, it will be time for us to make our way back to Austin.

Hamburger Loop

We’ll head Southwest of Austin to some of the more picturesque roads in the Hill Country. Texas, specifically the Hill Country, is home to an ever-growing wine region that has gained quite a following over the last decade. We will ride through Kendalia and past the Winery in Sisterdale to the Old Tunnel State Park. Right next to the State Park is the Alamo Springs Cafe, which is home to some of the very bestburgers in Texas.

         After a mouth-watering burger (or two), we will make a short detour to Luckenbach, “Where Everybody is Somebody”. Luckenbach was once a suffering trading post and was actually put up for sale in 1970. The add advertised the town as “ town-pop.3-for sale”. Texas Rancher Hondo Crouch actually bought the town and dance hall for $30,000. The town itself boasts a popular dance hall and a very cool vintage General Store. After seeing all of Luckenbach, which can be done in quite a short time, we will head to the very German town of Fredericksburg.

            Home of Admiral Nimitz, this quirky German settlement is over 160 years old. Much of central Texas was settled by German immigrants and their culture has remained in the form of amazing beer, jägerschnitzel, and Deutches Schokolade (German Chocolate).  Fredericksburg is also home to some unexpectedly awesome shopping. Granite Tables, Gem stone globes, wineries, leathers, and many specialty sweets stores await you. Should you be lucky enough to visit during peach season, you will have to get a Fredericksburg peach or 20. They are incredibly sweet and possibly one of the finest things to come from hill country soil. After our visit in Fredericksburg, we will take the soft winding roads back through the Hill Country into Austin.
