Nutty Brown Cafe is an awesome restaurant with a regular cafe ambiance and has a good variety in the menu. Chicken dishes are in plenty, from Cedar Valley smothered chicken, CB's charbroiled chicken breast and more. Catfish, shrimps and oyster are available too. Pork chop is the favorite of many. Not to mention a few refreshing drinks to quench your thirst. But what's relishing your meal without some entertainment? Groove to live music and satisfy some musical hunger through the genres of country, swing and honky tonk by some local bands and artists who are certainly not shy of talent.
For a mouthful of the real Texas, head down to The Salt Lick barbeque restaurant. The scenery and the rustic restaurant building all add to that perfect Southern flavor. Try the mammoth sized sandwiches or the family style meals (inclusive of pork ribs, brisket, sausage, potato salad, cole slaw, beans, pickles, onions and bread). Dig into the delicious smoky sausages or the moist briskets all made with special Salt Lick sauces. You have to leave place for the irresistible homemade desserts. It must be noted though that the restaurant is located in a dry precinct so you have to carry your own alcohol. Great barbeque, melt in the mouth desserts and a drink of your choice!

A Hill Country limestone cottage converted to an elegant restaurant? Yes, it can be done, and done well.

The prix-fixe dinner includes bread, salad, appetizer, entree and dessert, and is uniformly well-executed. The Chateaubriand melts in your mouth, and the truffle-topped Tenderloin Medallions are extraordinary.
