Love the Lunch

Didn't get the chance to sit inside and eat, did the drive through for my order. Informed the employee this was my first visit - she took the time to hand me a to go menu and walk me through the lunch items. Got the single meat plate (Sausage) with 2 sides. The two links were a good size and... read more

Dropped in here based on the reviews, and the funky looking sign <also it's called Underwoods Barbeque now> ... some of the offerings tasted somewhat ok, but we're mostly overbooked, dry and had obviously been standing for some time since being cooked ... disappointing, not as good as a barbeque place in Junction

We were just passing through Brownwood on a road trip from Houston to Lubbock, and we stopped for a late Sunday lunch. We were very pleased! Basically, you choose your meat and the price includes unlimited cafeteria-style veggies, rolls, cobbler, and drink. I got the chicken fried steak and my husband got the roast chicken. We were pleasantly surprised to... More

We've been eating at the Underwoods Cafeteria's for most of my life. The Brownwood Underwoods is a favorite. I'm personally not fond of their beef, but everything else is good. My favorite is their fried chicken in the canola oil. Veggies are okay, but not outstanding. The cobblers and rolls are THE best! Hot rolls and butter are continuously served... More

Well just not worth the hype. Meat choices and flavor were good but veggies were the pits! Canned at best and orange potato salad stuff was barely edible. Portions are small and prices are high. You've been warned.

Staff at cafeteria line was nice and helpful. My fiancee's BBQ chicken was soft, moist and very tasty! I had a brisket sandwich that was ok. I wouldn't say the best I've had. Good prices for the servings we got. For two of us it was around $20. Self service for refills but they do have someone walking around offering... More

Their Bar B Q is very unique. A family member is always on site. Meals are more than you can eat and excellent. The chicken is especially good - always fresh and tender. People visit Brownwood just to eat at Underwoods.
