We had a FABULOUS meal and evening at Little Gretel Restaurant in Boerne Texas. I love duck and if it's on the menu, that;s probably what I'm going to order as there are not many places that serve it. It could not have been better!...More

Sat outside and enjoyed great snitzle with spaetzle and red cabbage while watching wildlife at the river across the street. Great beer with flights available for the unsure. After dinner enjoy a nice walk next to the river which winds behind main street.
