Last week, returning to Austin from a few nights in the Hill Country, the timing worked out to stop in Blanco for a late lunch. The Red Bud Cafe was easy to find along the route to 290 and parking wasn't crowded. It was past peak lunch and drizzly, and though still medium crowded inside and out (there's covered seating...

The Red Bud on the Court House square in Blanco had some construction going on out front, but getting inside was easy - just watch your step. We waited in a short line to order then picked a table and posted our order number on our chosen table so our server could find us. The wait was about 20 minutes... More

This was the first time we had tried dinner here, and although the menu was the same as lunch, we were quite satisfied. There was a fun band, and the bar in the back has all the Real Ale beers on tap. We enjoyed a burger, fish tacos, and Greek salad, all generous portions and tasty.

So glad we stopped here on our way through to Fredericksburg. This is clearly a local hotspot- as it filled up on the Friday evening. We enjoyed a hot turkey ruben and a pear/blue cheese salad with grilled chicken while a local guitarist picked out some old country.

We always go to the Redbud for lunch when we are in Blanco. Their sandwiches are always consistently good. Homemade breads, soups and salads round out the menu.

The food was good and fresh but I rated it only a 3 because we waited almost 10 minutes to order and over 40 minutes for two salads.

Need I say more, it's all about the company! Best burger in Texas, hands down. Waiting on the band to start up

We stopped on our way from San Antonio to Gatesville,Texas for lunch. I had the turkey,bacon,avocado wrap. It was really tasty. The chipotle mayo dressing gave the wrap a terrific zip. My friend had the French dip which was tasty but nothing special. The restaurant is a diner style, order at the counter. Great choice for a good lunch. Large... More

The Redbud cafe is truly the pearl of Blanco as well as a great place to stop for a meal in the hill country. They mostly serve lunch and dinner several nights a week. The menu contains many traditional favorites such as Rubens, but all with their own twist and local fresh ingredients. Great burgers and special sandwiches. Super friendly... More
