Underwood's Cafeteria

This spot has been serving its signature brand of BBQ since the 1930’s and remains a crowd favorite.   Walk through the cafeteria line and pick your favorite meat – beef steak, sausage, ribs, fried chicken.  After that you get unlimited sides and hot yeast rolls.  Mmmmm…

Lucille + Mabel

This restaurant isn’t just the best steakhouse in Brownwood, it’s one of the best in Texas.  They renovated an old downtown bank building and did an incredible job setting the mood for a romantic date or family get together.  The steaks are incredible, but so is everything on the menu.  It’s named after the owners’ grandmothers and wants to create a place where food brings people together.


Lake Brownwood State Park

This lake gets very little attention but offers an easy getaway, great hiking, and wonderful views.  It’s also home the most historic CCC structures of any state park in Texas.


Brown County Museum of History

This expansive museum covers every era of Brownwood’s past including the wild west, Army bases, and pioneer education.  Don’t miss the historic jail that’s now a museum and castle all in one.

Lehnis Railroad Museum

You’ll love this look at the railroad history of Brownwood.  Kids will love all the ornate miniature train sets and walking through the full sized rail cars.  There’s even a small train that folks can ride around the old grain silos.  It’s trains of every size and for every age.
