The best places to eat in Wimberley, TX and the surrounding area
Updated: Sep 12
The Texas Hill Country is full of quaint towns sprinkled along vineyards and rivers, but Wimberley, also know as a little bit of Heaven, is truly a gem.
While tourists flock to Fredricksburg en masse, Wimberley has remained a bit more off the beaten path and has attracted artists, musicians, and lively restaurants around its square. Whether you are craving a little Tex-Mex for breakfast, some Texas BBQ for lunch, or some southern comfort food for dinner, Wimberley has it all.
Check out my favorites and let me know your must-adds because I never want to miss out on the best food around.
