Review: Mr. Gatti’s In Fredericksburg, Texas

We recently went to Mr. Gatti’s in Fredericksburg, Texas since pizza is Little Monster’s second favorite food (her absolute favorite is cheese.)
I had never been to Mr. Gatti’s before and wasn’t sure what to expect. The last time I even thought about it was when we went shopping for Christmas gifts last year, and drove by one.
Here in Kerrville we used to have one, but I had heard awful things about it. I heard the Kerrville location was dirty, had a major roach problem and that the pizza was barely edible. The Mr. Gatti’s here closed their doors quite awhile ago. So, as you can imagine, I was nervous about visiting the restaurant, even though it was in a different location. Was Mr. Gatti’s just a horrible place to eat no matter the location or did it just depend on the management? I’m happy to say that it must have just been the management, because the Mr. Gatti’s in Fredericksburg, Texas is awesome!

When we first walked in, I noticed immediately how clean it looked. Even though it is really busy the floor was practically spotless and the counters were clean. Since Little Monster had been in the car awhile, I immediately took her to the restroom and even it was really clean!


Then we headed to the buffet where there was so much more food options than at CiCi’s Pizza (where we usually go):

  • Salad (lettuce, spinach, carrots, peppers, cucumbers, peas, every topping you can think of plus a variety of dressings and of course, grated cheese.)
  • Pizza (pepperoni, ham & pineapple, supreme, all different kinds!)
  • Sides (potato salad, pasta salad, all different kinds of fruits and veggies)
  • Pasta (spaghetti, macaroni & cheese)
  • Desserts

The buffet at Mr. Gatti’s had so many different things, I was really impressed. I started off with a salad, I loaded my plate with lettuce, spinach, carrots, mushrooms, jalapenos, green peppers, grape tomatoes, onions, cheese and drenched it with honey mustard dressing.



Then I loaded up my plate with pizza.


The pizza tastes soooooo good! It was so delicious that we are actually going to start going to Mr. Gatti’s instead of CiCi’s Pizza from now on (sorry, CiCi’s.)

Then we ate some more…


and some more…


The food is really good…. so good we are getting giddy…


Ben never smiles for photographs, but I bribed him… doesn’t he look charming?


We were stuffed! We went to the game room, but were a bit confused. We were used to other places where they have a machine that gives you tokens. At Mr. Gatti’s in Fredericksburg, Texas, they have a kiosk that gives you a card. Your tokens and tickets are kept on this card. So we purchased one and put $20 on it for the games. But we were a bit confused how the card thing worked, so we asked one of the employees in the game room.

I didn’t get his name (shame on me,) but he did mention he was one of the managers. He was super nice and even used his card to demonstrate for us because we really were that clueless. LOL! After we showed us the ins and outs, we were set!


They had a “wheel-of-fortune-type-thingy” where we could win tickets. Our first spin we won 1,000 tickets! Jackpot!


They had all kinds of games, from car racing (my favorite) to skeeter ball and evenbumper cars! They even had pint-sized video games appropriate for toddlers and preschoolers.

They even had a Guitar Hero-type of game.


I thought I was rockin’…. but Ben says I just look constipated…


Afterward we spent some of the tickets won and got Little Monster a pink and purple princess basketball since she is one of those princess-loving, dress-wearing tomboys (just like me!)

We all had a great time and we plan on returning to Mr. Gatti’s in Fredericksburg, Texas!
