Where To Eat

The Dripping Springs community and the surrounding Texas Hill Country are home to a number of great eating establishments that range from fast food burgers, Texas BBQ, Italian, Asian, Tex-Mex, Comfort Food, Sea Food & Steaks, gourmet soups and sandwiches, and everything in between.  Below is a list of our favorite places to eat in our area.  The ones marked with our DSSF “note” are eateries that support the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival – we eat regularly at these places, we know the owners, love their food, and we highly recommend them.
