The photo below is of The Walburg Restaurant. This is another one of those great places we found close to our new home we probably never would have come across if we had not moved. It is probably just too far away for most folks that live in Austin to drive out to, but if you can drive to BFE for barbeque out in Driftwood ( place will remain nameless ) You should try to drive out to Walburg to this place. Somehow some way the owners of this place were able to transform this old mercantile in the small town of Walburg into a German restaurant and biergarten that is hopping every weekend night until the beer runs out. Spring is the best time to visit as the temperatures are perfect and they open their outside biergarten. There are many great German places scattered througought Central Texas because many Germans migrated to this area during the Texas land grant program. Inside these small towns you can sometimes find wonderful places that stay true to their heritage and are just a treat to go visit and spend time. We are going back this spring so give me a holler if you want to relax on a Saturday afternoon in beautiful Walburg Texas with a plate of wienerschnitzel and pitcher of Shiner to mix the best of both German and Texas cultures.
