food was the usual barbecue with the regular sides, I felt it had outlived its reputation. One terribly bored young lady kept coming around asking if we wanted another roll, obviously wished she was somewhere else.

Yes, a veritable sea of cholesterol there before you for your dining pleasure! Underwood’s is a treat, and a long time local standby in Brownwood. I have never had a bad meal there. The place is flooded with locals at suppertime. Fried chicken, chicken fried steak, chicken fried chicken, fried catfish, fried okra, fried fries….how can one go wrong. Better... More

It's Good, it's priced fairly and there's plenty! Our choices on Saturday Night were BBQ and Chicken Fried, Baked or Grilled and Fried Fish. Veggies and desserts done well and fresh hot rolls brought to your table every 15 minutes.

We've heard that this place had great steaks, that's not the case! There were 5 of us and not one overly enjoyed our meal. I read great reviews on here for this restaurant but I have highly have to disagree! Food is mediocre and far over priced. Will not be eating here again.

We figured from the reviews this was a safe bet to have some good BBQ, boy were we disappointed. It was terrible and we just looked at each other wondering if everyone else was thinking the same thing. Add to that rude service from the lady taking our payment and it was one of the worst places we have been... More

If you're a local, you know that Underwoods is the place to find a complete meal that will be enjoyed by the entire family. Fried Chicken, Beef Steak, Ribs, etc. It's all good. Prices are competitive and veggies are all you can eat. You'll leave full and pleasantly surprised. Rolls and Cobbler are to die for.

We stop at Underwoods every time we go through Brownwood. I always get the beef steak, and it is never disappointing. Very tender and lots of flavor. Also love the cobbler! Truly one of the best BBQ places I have ever eaten at... and I have eaten BBQ all over Texas. They are closed on Wednesdays... but if you ever... More

We had been driving all day and when we saw the billboard for this place, we thought, why not. When we pulled up it wasn't what we expected. The food was great. And if you go away from this place hungry, you need some help. The only thing is the entrance and exit needs to better identified from the outside.... More

Four of us went to dinner at Underwoods. First, be aware they don't serve alcohol. We had a glass of wine begfore we went and that carried us through dinner. The restaurant is buffet style where you order your main dish and then have your choice of sides and desserts, all you want. They have a nice variety of chicken,... More
