Help with Brenham
Any recs for places to eat in or near Brenham...besides ice cream ? THANKS for your suggestions.
Well, College Station and Bryan are about 20 minutes away, and there are some pretty good restaurants here, but the Surrey Inn in Caldwell, also about 20 minutes from Brenham, has some of the best food in the Brazos Valley area. LifeInTheBrazos.com has a good restaurant guide for area eateries.
The last time I drove through Brenham, I stopped at the Country Inn for chicken-fried steak and fresh-baked pie. It was pretty good, though one local chowhound said at the time that their CFS wasn't as good as it used to be. If you're in the area, you might want to check it out for yourself—and maybe report back?
I believe there's a place in Snook next to College Station that serves chicken fried bacon. Mmm, bacon.
My favorite in the area is the Brazos Belle in "downtown" Burton, about 10 miles nw of Brenham off HWY 290. Its a unique chef-owned and operated restaurant featuring French food made with local ingrediants. Everything is made to order and very good. Call for hours as its open only on the weekends during the off season. Mid price range.
