We drove from Austin just in time for a Friday happy hour at The Gruene Door. The margarites were incredible. Watch out--they are strong! And the appetizers and service were superb as well.

11:45 Sunday Morning - plenty of room. With weather cooperating sat outside. The meatloaf was delicious (not been here in 3 years, and was still just as good). Wait staff friendly and most efficient. Location perfect for a stroll (and buy) through the shops thereafter.
