They may have had the best steaks we've ever had. Seriously. And we're used to some good beef. Old bank building nicely re-purposed as a delightful restaurant, with indoor and outdoor seating. Amazing artwork throughout the building -- that alone is worth the trip. Mojitos...More

We were here for the Jeep Jamboree and tried this place. It was nice but a little too fancy for us. It was expensive and small portions for the price. Many would like it, just not my cup of tea.

Loved this restaurant! Went with two friends after a wildflower drive and we were impressed by the friendly staff, great service, and delicious food. The barbacoa Benedict was delicious. There was some relaxing live music and a dog friendly patio. We’ll be back.

We had a very enjoyable dinner experience at Badu 1891. The staff was very attentive, but not overly so, the food was wonderful and the price was fair for the quality. We were invited to tour the extensively remodeled building and had the good fortune...More

Great waitstaff started us with cornbread and it was spicy and savory and the best way to start a special dinner. My husband had the chicken fried chicken. The gravy was one of the best white cream gravies ever—enhanced with mild green chilis! I had...More

BADU is definitely a destination; this is a very old building transformed into an upscale restaurant. Décor was very tasteful yet people doing dinner were not that dressed up; jeans, cowboy hats as well as sports coats were in evidence. The wait staff was outstanding,...More

We went on a Friday night and they had a dinner menu. It was delicious, so we decided to have lunch the next day and it was also very good. To answer your question, they have one menu with lunch and dinner. Worth your time.
