We heard from locals living near Boerne that Mague’s cafe was the best Mexican restaurant in the area serving authentic Mexican food. Mike and I both love Mexican food so we had to try it. This route is a shorter ride (~120 mi total) to take a lunch break at Mague’s cafe and then ride some of the more curvier roads that head back from Boerne to Fredericksburg. Mague’s cafe was very good and had a busy lunch crowd. The roads back to Fredericksburg were fun but nothing challenging. If we decide to go to Boerne again, we will take FM-1376 to Sisterdale, then take a left onto FM-473 then take a right onto FM-474 to get to Boerne. FM-474 is really fun because it has some pretty nice curves, but note that in February 2018, FM-474 was under construction and was down to complete dirt in some sections. FM-1376 (Sisterdale Rd) is pretty straight and riding it for 34 mi into Boerne is boring. Of course, no deer popped out at us on the road this time to get the adrenaline going, but I don’t want that kind of excitement! The detailed route is shown below:
