Customer Testimonials



Little Gretel, a 20 minute drive from San Antonio, is located on River Road across from a park bordering the Guadalupe River – alive with ducks and geese. Their small patio garden has 12 tables surrounded by potted, climbing roses. Fran and I took a break during our day of shopping the “Texas Hill Country” and had an incredible lunch at the very charming Little Gretel. Their menu has been featuring German and Czech cuisine since 1983.

I chose the Jaeger Schnitzel with Hunter Sauce. The very generous plate of schnitzel and homemade spatzle drizzled with a deep, earthy mushroom sauce and a side homemade sauerkraut was more than enough for lunch. Scrumptious!

The sleek and sexy interior dining room is a wonderful surprise of celery green walls, shiny black tables, black chairs with celery green leather seats, 12-foot ceilings, an obligatory cuckoo clock and a stunning copper & crystal boat chandelier as the focal point of the room.

Our very friendly server only added to the perfect lunch under the Texas sun!

Mmm… Mmm… Mmm…
