From Seafood/Steak to an all you can eat Buffet, one can't go wrong with Werner's.
Plus, if you're not from a small town that likes to hunt - you'll get a kick out of all the stuffed prizes this place has.
Favorite Dish: When I was younger I use to always get the Chicken Fried Chicken, but their lunch/dinner specials are always good too.
it's basically the "fanciest" restaurant in this town of 2000. has the local country atmosphere - animal heads mounted on the walls, and they know how to make a great chicken fried steak with homemade gravy. you can't go there without knowing someone (unless you've never lived in or within a 50 mile radius of shiner). friendly service.
Favorite Dish: steak with baked potato and iced tea.
There are about 5 or 6 places to eat in Shiner. We only saw 2. Shiner Restaurant & Bar which is in a 'award-Winning historic Green Building' on East 7th Street, and Friday's Fried Chicken Restaurant which is almost opposite. We bypassed both and headed to Gonzales to try our luck there.
There are apparently 3 bars in Shiner and no two guesses on what is their most popular brew.
