Hill Country TX Recommendations?

Heading to Fredericksburg and surrounding area next weekend. It's been years since we've been there... recommendations? For this trip we are much more interested in casual / unique atmosphere with good food than high end fine dining. Breakfast / lunch / dinner ideas all appreciated. Thank you!

MSP to the Black Hills... help!

Driving to the Black Hills / Badlands from MSP in May (via I-90). Any restaurant (and I use that term loosely... happy to hit any kind of pit stop) recommendations? While we will be on I-90, we love a good road trip and are happy to detour to destinations. Also will spend 3 nights at a ranch between Black Hills and the Badlands, so recommendations in that area would also be appreciated. (I have seen the posts on the Alpine Inn.. is that still solid?)

Other non-food stops you recommend? Thanks in advance!

Favorite restaurants to suggest for our leaf-peeping tour along the St. Croix and Missippi?

Heading to/from Lacrosse next weekend (from Mpls) for a fall roadtrip. Would love suggestions on favorite restaurants (both lunch and dinner) as many of the posts here are outdated. Other favorite stops (shops, sites, etc) also appreciated!

Favorite restaurants in Puerto Rico?

Just returned from PR and thought I'd share a bit of our experience. Our absolute favorite was Jose Enrique in Santurce (blissfully far from the tourist areas). A-MAZ-ING meal, and great service. St. Germain was also a favorite in Old San Juan... great value and the service was wonderful -- so friendly. (We went for Sunday "wine and crepe" night).

Went to Parrot Club for lunch and I agree with Hill Food that it was good but tired. We also really enjoyed our lunch at Cafe Puerto Rico, but it is right next to the port and casino so I would pay attention to the cruise ship schedule!

Favorite restaurants in Puerto Rico?

We will be vacationing in Puerto Rico for a week in July. Staying in Old San Juan, but will have a car and also do a bit of touring. Any favorite spots that should be on our list?? Happy to go upscale for a few meals, but more interested in local favorites....
