Mexican Food – Brenham Restaurant Review: Los Cabos

Where to eat Mexican food in Brenham

Where to eat Mexican food in Brenham

Just 4 miles from the ranch you will find delicious Mexican food and wonderful steaks, both under one roof at Los Cabos Mexican Grill and Steakhouse in Brenham!   The bar scene is fun, the  drinks yummy and the food top notch.  The service is excellent as well.  The Margaritas are delicious,  the Hard Lemonades are made with Texas made Vodka, the chips crisp, the guacamole fresh and the meats used are succulent and flavorful.  The inviting atmosphere and attentive staff make the whole experience worth doing many times over.

JW’s Steakhouse Restaurant Review

August 7th, 2013 by Pamela Murski

JW Steakhouse Restaurant

Onion Rings

One of the things we love most here is food!  Reviewing restaurants is something we do so that our guests know just the right place to go to sink their teeth into a delicious meal.  We recently ate at JW’s Steakhouse in Carmine, located just off  HWY 290 in “downtown”.  We have eaten here several times of the past couple of years, letting several months go by so that we can judge the consistency of their food and service.  We have yet to be disappointed.  They consistently deliver delicious down home country style food…Texas size Chicken Fried Steak, crunch homemade onion rings, great homemade sides, excellent burgers, prime rib and more.  They have a full bar service including an expansive selection of beer….on tap as well as bottled plus several micro brews (which tend to be our favorites where ever we may go) .  JW’ Steakhouse decor is straight up country with a rustic wood massive barn style building.  The service has always been superb with some of the friendliest waitstaff around.

JW’s Steakhouse is about a 20 minute drive from the ranch which affords a nice time to visit while enjoying the beautiful Texas countryside drive.  If you are over in that area during the Round Top Antiques Festival, stop in for supper before heading home for the night.  It is always busy, so be prepared to perhaps wait just a bit.  Have a drink at the bar and sit a spell!  This is definitely a 5 star review for good food and good service!  Once you try it, let us know what you think!  If you’ve already eaten here, comment on this post and let us know what you think!

Festival Hill Concerts Rated Best!

October 10th, 2012 by Pamela Murski

Festival Hill Music Institute, voted Best Concert Hall in Texas by Best Rated Reviews.com for Travel, Leisure & Events, is just a short 20 minute country drive away from the B&B.  This music venue is top rated in the country and is a very, very special place to visit, hosting concerts year round in a spectacular concert hall.  The Festival Hill grounds are not to be missed either as they are surrounded by fabulous gardens and walking paths.  They also host the annual Herb Society of America’s Pioneer Units Herbal Forum, a 3 day extravaganza of seminars, good food, workshops, plant & herbal product sales and top notch speakers from the Herbal world!
