Always good!

Have eaten at Underwoods Cafeteria many times in the past. Stopped by to pick up some take out and it hasn't changed. Still good food at reasonable prices.

Not a big fan of cafeteria style food so I was not expecting much. Read a lot of mixed reviews about this place but we figured it was worth a try. Got the barbecue sandwich and it was very soggy and well it didn't taste anything like what a bbq sandwich should taste like. Sauce was not very good either.... More

Texan's rave about Underwoods, and so I was excited to finally be able to go there for a meal. Like one of Pavlov's dogs, I entered the establishment salivating. I perused all the food that there was to choose from, looked at my date and begged him to take me elsewhere to eat. The food look not only unappetizing, but... More

Great meat dishes,long time local favorite. Plenty of sides and delicious rolls and cobblers. What's not to like? Great place to stop anytime you're on Brownwood. A classic!

People come from all around to eat here. I love the rolls and peach cobbler. I found the fried chicken too greasy and the baked chicken too dry. Not a real fan of their beef or their veggies. Eaten here several times and tried different things.

Underwoods has been around since the 50s. I ate there as a child and anytime I am within 100 miles of Brownwood, Texas I am drawn there. They are on the West edge of town just across the street from Walmart. A smart economic move for Walmart. Everyone in Texas eats at Underwoods. The BBQ beef, pork and chicken is... More

When in Brownwood, Texas a must stop for me and my family is Underwoods Cafeteria. We have been coming here for years with the same great taste. I love the sliced beef, mashed potatoes, rolls, an assortment of fresh vegetables and don't forget the cobbler! My wife loves the rotisserie chicken with all the fixings. Once you are seated, the...

If there's a line there's a reason, wait. Great, sinfully opulent bar-b-cue. Eat there every day like I did, you'll never regret it.
