This innovative restaurant (since 1993) is housed in the
old Steiner-Dallmeyer General Store - Burton, Texas.
Old-timers tell us it was 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"
Houston Sidewalk - Sunday Drive


"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"

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"

The Brazos Belle is a true Country-French Restaurant in the small town of
Burton, in the rolling hills of Washington County, where the sunrises and
sunsets never cease to amaze!  Located just off Highway 290 - you’ll find us
half way between Austin and Houston, just close enough (8 miles) to Round
Top and basically in the middle of everything!  Join us - the Belle is always a
great choice for family meals and celebrations or a simple lunch for two.
