This innovative restaurant (since 1993) is housed in the
old Steiner-Dallmeyer General Store; a place where you
could buy a spool of thread or a three horse
middle-buster, or most anything in between!  A careful
renovation of this wonderful National Historic Register
Building (1875) has proven to be the perfect setting for
the Brazos Belle.


"owned by noted chef Andre' Delacroix, the unpretentious
Belle holds it's own with any fine-dining spot in the state"
Carol Barrington for Texas Highways
"Chowing Down Near Houston - Forks in the Backroads"
"located in an old general store with antique oak
tables, the restaurant is a cozy setting for a chic
country menu worthy of Provence"

"Picturesque La Bahia Road, also known as Highway
390, is practically paved with Texas history.  Stephen F.
Austin led his original colonists over it in the early 19th
Century, and Sam Houston rode its rolling curves
when he took command of his army of Texians in 1836.
So, it is fitting that Houstonians often drive the old La
Bahia Road.  Today it links the small farming
communities of Washington, Independence, Gay Hill
and Burton to the county seat of Brenham.  The road is
often awash in wildflowers and antique shops
brimming with vintage goods.  The Brazos Belle is
located on the Bahia Road, at the point where it travels
through Burton"

"for the culinary surprise of your life . . . you
should visit the small town of Burton any
week-end and enjoy a meal at the Brazos Belle.
The promised surprise is a quaint French Country bistro
in a little Texas town . . .
both authentic to the hilt"
