Sat at the bar and had a great lunch- their burgers are solid! Lynn handled the bar well, throwing drinks our way with good conversation.

The Nickle is our go to place. Just because it has the bar environment the food is a great surprise. Never ate chickens wings, but on Wednesday night 50 cent wings I could not resist. Boy howdy they were awesome. Another time, their tuna steak served as requested rare with the pico topping was so good. The icing on the... More

The nickel deserves a higher rating than what shows. This is where the locals go for good food. My wife had the tuna steak (rare) and loved it. I had the Pocahontas salad which was super. We noticed every other couple in the place had a big plate of wings in front of them, must be mighty good. Don't let... More

Conveniently located a few steps south of Main St. About half and half eating and drinking. Hill Country decor. Went specifically for the bison chicken fried steak but they didn't have any at 6:30 pm. Had the regular beef version and it was a little too gristley. Our waiter was quite good but it took 45-50 minutes from order to... More

We have been going to Fredericksburg for years but have never tried Buffalo Nickel as we assumed it was just a bar - we were so wrong. They have a great menu with some unique items - the food is excellent! We went for dinner and the meal was very good and then the ice cream with fried peanut butter... More

We went to watch the world series and the food was very good, service quick and personable, wine was above average. The chicken fried steak and fries were above average, with real steak and just the right amount of seasoning on the fries. The only downside was we left because my wife did not bring a jacket and the temperature... More
