Our visit was long in coming. I've only heard raves about Josie's Kitchen since it opened (we live in town), and we FINALLY ate here with a neighbor. (We just don't get out much.) We all had the Hatch Chile Cheeseburger, which was delicious. Kudos...More

Heading to Fredericksburg, we made a stop at this small restaurant in Blanco for lunch. My chef salad was delicious and loaded with meat, and the salad dressing was homemade. My husband’s pastrami sandwich, loaded with grilled onions and melted cheese, was enough for two....More

Park personnel recommended Josie’s and I checked the Facebook page. Open for dinner end of week. May be a hole in the wall but the food is gourmet. Funky atmosphere was fun! Order at window outside. Grab a table in an enclosed porch-style building. Complimentary...More

This eatery specializes in 'artesian' sandwiches. I had a very good turkey panini & my relative had a roast pork sandwich which was missing the apple. Would do takeout next time because the indoor seating is in a screened tin building. A couple of nights...More

We’re sorry there didn’t appear to be any apples on your Pig Roast sandwich, if you would have let us know, we would have happily fixed that! As for the enclosed patio, we’re just a mom and pop shop, we built it ourselves from nothing...More

Had the Josie burger for lunch today...absolutely delicious. A huge half pound of very high quality beef with tons of flavor. I would put this and Red Bud’s “Blanco Burger” up against ANY burger. Very hard to beat.

We've been here many times and absolutely love the food and the people that work here. As they say don't judge a book by its cover. This food could compete with anyone's
