German immigrants settled the Hill Country town of Boerne in the 1800s, and their influence is still seen in the community's selection of restaurants. Bratwursts and kolaches are best served with a cold glass of beer, and you'll find no shortage of that in Boerne's brewhouses and beer gardens. House-brewed beer is common, and the selections on tap change regularly depending on what is currently in production. Many of the ingredients served in Boerne, including vegetables, meat, and wine, are sourced locally. Mesquite-smoked meats are a Texas tradition, and Boerne is no exception to this. That's not to say that it's all about meat here; vegetarians will find sandwiches, salads and Thai specialties to satisfy their palates.
