Great staff and great food! There aren't many classic texas BBQ joints with tofu and tempeh, but this is one of them (along with your more traditional fare, of course).

All the great things folks say about The Branch are true. Great selection, taste, presentation, value. With out-of-town visitors, here's the first restaurant we'd think of taking them.

The food and service at this restaurant is excellent. I also have many dietary restrictions, which they were able to accommodate easily. This is one of very few restaurants I am able to eat at, and the food was delicious despite my restrictions.

LOVE everything about this place. The food, the staff, the atmosphere, the beer. I love how obvious it is that the branch tries to keep it local and support their community. Hands down the best place in town for food and drinks
