In Fredericksburg: Altdorf's or Auslander for lunch, Freidhelms or Cotton Gin for dinner.
Kerrvile: Cracker Barrel, Mamcitas, Billy Genes, Cowboy Steakhouse.
There's a number of bbq joints and cafes in the little towns along the way as well.
If you're looking for something to do other than ride, there's the Nimitz Museum/WWII Museum in Fredericksburg, rock climbing out by Enchanted Rock, night bat fly overs at Braken (sp?) and a ton of caves/caverns to check out.
Pick up a Butler map either online or we sell them in the store.
Lot's of good info and they rate the roads as well.
I've been riding the Hill Country for 17 years and found some new roads with the Butler map.

Patrick hit the high points. Motorcycle museum in vanderpool is fun. Juanita's in Kerrville is good, but a little eccentric for a mexican restaurant. Love creek orchard in medina makes a good burger and a great apple pie.

As for roads hit 55, because it is right off the sisters. If you are planning a longer trip the roads between boerne, comfort, and sisterdale are pretty good. Old number 9 (old san antonio road) has an old train tunnel with a bat colony, but is under construction right now with some unpaved sections.

I agree with OST. Barbecue place a few doors down is good too.

Make sure you ride 16 out of kerrville, easily one of the best roads in the area.

Make sure you also ride 39 along the Guadalupe, as well as 1341 to OST into Fredericksburg.
In all honesty there's a ton of good roads out here outside of the traditional 335,6,and 7.
You're also less likely to come up behind a pack of bikes putting along sight seeing (nothing wrong with rhat, but if you're more than 3 than ride simgle file when someone comes up behind you while tou're runnig 5 mph under the limit), or maniacs drifting over the double yellow line into your lane or running up your at a buck thirty because they think it's their private race track.
The Hill Country doesn't suffer fools well; if you do down or run off the road you're going to hit a tree, a rock, a mountain, some fencing or go over a cliff. None of which ends well.

Have a good time, enjoy the roads and scenery, but ride well within your limits; watch out for gravel/rocks/limbs on the road, cattle guards and water crossings (even when dry the pavement is slick/worn smooth) as well as deer (i stopped counting at 50 in the last 2 days), road runners and the occasional stray cow and bring it home in one piece.
