What's all the fuss?

I prefer salad and hate the styrofoam plates and plastic forks they use. Salads are bland.

Great Night Out

A quick note and a BIG THANK YOU....my family and I, looking for a quick bite out got a lot more on Friday night, seated in the tent, listening to Chris Taylor and enjoying the pizza and beer lent to the best evening out than we have had in a long time. Even though it was a busy night, the staff did a great job staying on top of everyone's needs and did not skip a beat...GOOD JOB!!!
Fralo's has become a regular for our family and friends!!

Definately some of the BEST Pizza

Every time we have had pizza here it is wonderful, perfectly cooked, crispy crust on the bottom, and the toppings always fresh. You will never be disappointed with the pizza pies. My only complaint is sometimes the service is slow, but then again, who cares when the pizza is this good. Open more locations!

Best pizza in San Antonio

If you love the Texas hill country and great food, great music, the outdoors and fun, make it a point to eat at Fralo's! Frank and Lori serve the best pizza in Texas, but do not miss their chicken alfredo or crispy zucchini and desserts. Where else could you build your own pizza from a half dozen sauces, about a dozen different cheeses, a dozen + different meats including a vegan, and over two dozen different veggies, nuts and fruit?
If you're a weenie, you can even eat inside where it's air conditioned! If you're a giant weenie, with no taste buds, at least drive by Fralo's on Saturday night at about 9 and see what you're missing! I'll wave at you!

best pizza ever!

I've had pizza before, but Fralo's is the best. the crust is handmade and has such good flavor. the cheese is amazing! the staff is always friendly and the owners are 2 of the nicest people i've met. the other food that i've had on the menu is amazing as well. I love baked cheese tortellini and Fralo's blows everybodys away. I wont have pizza anywhere else!!

Best Cheese Pizza Ever!

My husband and I LOVED their cheese pizza - with the gorgonzola cheese! We both agree - the best we've ever had, and we've lived all over the country. You do need to like gorgonzola cheese before you order it, but if you do, it is fantastic!
They have plenty of vegetarian options as well.
The tiramisu, however, is made with cream cheese and tastes more like cheesecake than tiramisu. It's good, if you want a cheesecake-like dessert, so just be aware of that.

Not impressed

Ordered the cheese pizza. Strangest flavor mixture. Had globs of green cheese that were pungent. Crust was light and tasty without the grease found on many pizza crusts.

Fralo's is well worth the drive!

This was my first visit to Fralo's. We traveled from 281/1604 not sure what to expect but it was well worth the trip. The restaurant is wonderfully family oriented. My eight year old son enjoyed socializing with other kids around the campfire, while my husband and I enjoyed some adult time. We ordered a simple pizza, Cured Prosciutto, black olives, mushroom and cheese. The pizza was cooked to perfection w/ very lien Prosciutto, a delicious sauce, and the crust was quite tasty. We had the Pigtails as a starter. The Serrano ham was perfectly salted and complemented the Bufala Mozzarella. Our waitress Melanie was delightful. The price is affordable - we spent $48.15 with tip for three with dessert. The only other pizza that I can say that I enjoyed as much was at Dough's. I highly recommend Fralo's and can't wait to return.

Finally my quest is over

I have lived in San Antonio for over 4 years and have not found a place to satisfy my self described pizza snobbery. Growing up near New Haven Ct I have been accustomed to gourmet pizza. The ingredients are A+ the service was great, the owner even talked to us for a few just before leaving for a catering gig. My first bite I knew I was in for a treat. The only thing missing was a foxon park birch beer. My husband enjoyed his calzone- he said it wasn't the best but it ranked up there. So if you like small, cozy, intimate atmosphere's you should really try this place

Great casual dining and fun!

We go to Fralo's whenever we visit San Antonio and we go in the evening. The pizza was hands down, THE best pizza I've ever eaten! And where else can you ""build"" your own lasagna! Our waitstaff was very attentive and the owners even stopped by to shoot the breeze! The outdoor dining under the ancient oaks was very relaxing and so out of the ordinary. Now, if you want fast pizza served within four walls, just stop by your corner pizza joint, but if you want to experience the very best of San Antonio, you've got to go to Fralo's.

Just okay

The first time my family and I visited there was not seating available inside. (there are very few tables inside) There were tents outside but it was way too cold even with the heaters they provided. So we left.

My wife and I tried again a few months ago. Waitstaff was not particular friendly, the pizza was ok but not what I was expecting. The wait time was not bad.

We will not be back anytime soon. The price did not match the value.

Great Experience, Dog Friendly

We had a great experience and loved the music. The pizza was great and we were even able to bring our dog along so that was a plus!!! We had great service our server was attentive and friendly. I was a little disappointed that we had to pay a corking fee after just having bought our bottle of wine. Overall great food loved the Fralos sampler!!!!

room for improvement

My family and I are very involved in the restaurant business and pride ourselves in creating quality food. We make pizza at home once a week. It has been difficult for us to find pizza at a restaurant that equals to the quality as ours. After reading alot of reviews we decided to try Fralo's. I wasn't concerned about the long wait time for the pizza because at least I was forewarned. However I expect good service when I visit restaurants which I did not receive. We were not greeted when we came in the door and we had no idea if we were supposed to sit down or wait to be seated. After being passed 4 times by employees someone finally shouted over their shoulder that we could grab a table anywhere we liked. Then when we sat it took our ""server"" 15 min to say hi and that wasn't even to take our drink order. I was surprised that this girl was our server because I watched her walk by countless times never even addressing us. we were sitting right next to the front door and the bar so it wasn't difficult at all to actually just say ""hi folks I will be right with you."" Finally she greeted us and then came back a few minutes later with drinks. She tried to walk off without asking us if we had questions, or even if we wanted to order anything. I stopped and told her we were ready so she took the order. I have to say the pizza came out fairly quickly. It obviously has improved because we only waited 20 minutes. The pizza was tasty except the bacon was extremely undercooked. As a former chef myself and my husband as a restaurant manager, we both immediately were concerned. It barely had color and looked like it had only had a 3-4min cooktime total. This is not enough for a thick slice of bacon. Towards the end of the meal we stopped an employee to ask about the bacon cooking method, because our server never came back, not even to get us more drinks. He said they cooked in on the stove beofre putting it on the pizza. We showed him the bacon and he said, ""oh is that not cooked."" It was wiggly and extremely pale, disgusting!!! I have never seen a restaurant try and serve bacon cooked like that. We informed him it was and we couldn't even tear it because it was so undercooked. he just said oh again and walked away. Where was the manager? This was unacceptable. an hour and a half later our server finally appeared with the bill, still never refilling our waters or asking us how the food was. Needless to say this is one pizza place I will never return to and unfortunately have to let others know that it's probably not worth the waste of time. I really didn't want it to be anything like the other bad reviews I read but unfortunately it was right on. and sadly it was on a Tuesday night. Not a night were they can't handle dinner.

Excellent experience-food, music and fun!

I visited the restaurant last night with a reunion group that kept growing from 14 to 20+. The staff was extremely accomodating as the group continued to grow, adding tables and seats as needed despite it being one of the busiest nights I've seen there. For many in our group, it was their first experience at Fralo's and everyone loved their meals, especially with so many pizza choices. The sampler was a huge favorite! Everyone had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the food, music and having such a great place to reunite! We will be back soon!

very good

I've been to fralo's a couple of times and although it generally takes some time to get your food it has always been properly prepared and flavorful. Plus its nice to sit outside and enjoy yourself with friends and family in a non rushed atmosphere. Great food and friendly staff, great place to go for an unpretentious date. Will return soon.

A GREAT TIME!!!

My family is not able to get together very often due to major distances between my two sisters, our parents, and me. While visiting my parents in Boerne, my sister suggested we try FRALO'S for pizza. What a good idea it turned out to be!!! Our server, Melanie, was prompt, polite and very obliging to our requests. The other girl helping her was also a credit to your business. Our wait for seating was short because we arrived early on Saturday (9/20/08) evening. The live musician was fun to listen to and did his best to honor my sister's request. Being from the Chicago area, Pizza here is considered an art form. Fralo's lived up to the raves my sister had given it. We had two salads and two pizzas. Everything was delicious, served hot when appropriate, and was worth the price. The atmosphere was relaxing and gave my family and me a chance to have a good time. Thank you for providing some great memories. Please acknowledge Melanie's great service. I rarely write a business but thought you would appreciate being told about our experience.

Yuck!!

We read the reviews and we thought it was good, we went there and first they took a loooong time to attend us, they just passed besides us and didn't pay us attention, finally some girl ask what we wnated and we order, they took 1 HOUR!! I am not exagerating, we wait there for one hour to get our food, which by the way wasn't that good, was very salty, very sensible about cheese and sauce, and they didn't cook it long enough, also very expensive!. Add to that they are just kids pretending have a restaurant, I don't have any idea how they got awesome reviews or even prizes unless they do them for themselves. YUCK! I WILL NEVER COME BACK!

Gourmet Pizza - Best in SA

Having grown up in a very culinary family & being a chef myself, I am highly critical of every aspect of food service. Fralo's is a delight.

First, the ingredients are fresh & of the highest quality. They use the best of all the ingredients you are used to: tomatoes, basil, & garlic. However, they also artfully employ a host of ingredients less familiar to pizza such as lamb, artichoke hearts, pine nuts, & kalamatas. Even their cheeses push past the standard with pizzas featuring gorgonzola & smoked provolone (including mozzarella di bufala in their salads & starters!).

But Fralo's isn't using semi-exotic ingredients with any pretense. The menu is well thought out. The palette of flavors, whether familiar or exotic, marry fantasticaly with one another. You won't find that the tapenade or chicharron are on the menu solely to impress ''foodies,"" but because the end result is a balanced, delicious blend of clean tastes. For example, the heavier tastes of the alfredo & applewood smoked bacon on the Pozzi pizza are countered with light new potatoes & the crisp kick of cilantro. The harmony of the Nutty Chicken pizza's earthy, warm flavors offers half a dozen different tastes that leave none of them overwhelmed, even against garlic chicken. NOTE: If it's your first visit, get the Fralo's Sampler or you're doing yourself a disservice.

The only potential snag in my opinion is when the Texas weather doesn't cooperate. The seating is primarily outside at rustic wooden tables. Find the right day/time of day & you are in for a treat. The live music has been performed by pretty good musicians when I've gone. A pie at Fralo's will run you more than Pizza Hut etc. but you ARE getting what you pay for here.

After my first experience at Fralo's, I was stuffed. I had eaten far too much, but when I smelled more pizzas from the kitchen, they still smelled enticing. That is my ultimate test for great food. Maybe one day I'll get enough pizza to try some pasta. Bravo.
