We pulled in just as the after-church crowd was pulling out, and were luckily seated immediately, despite the full parking lot.  The quick & dirty; this place flirted, hard, with a five star. Everything at the table (except a dessert that I felt had been sitting around a while) impressed our party of four.  T-bones for the guys were cooked perfectly, salads were crisp & fresh (their house salad would be as good as Texas Roadhouse if they added egg, that is high praise for iceberg-based salad), and sides were good all around. (Damned sysco fried okra, tho.)I had the 8oz sirloin and shrimp w/3 fried shrimp. My steak was *perfect* in every way. Smoky, cooked exactly medium-rare, and tender. Awesome. I can only imagine what the t-bones tasted like! And the fried shrimp would definitely be worth a stop of its own. Definitely fresh & hand-battered, and as I'm in Galveston a lot I am PICKY about shrimp. Their cocktail sauce was perfect, as well, with just the right amount of spice.But the real winner had to be the jalapeno marinated pork chops my Mom ordered. Amazing. The jalapeno flavor was there, without adding any spice, then grilled to perfection.Unfortunately taking a star off for cleanliness & seating four of us at a four top; yes, "technically" that should be okay, but once the rolls and teas and butter basket and plates hit the table it's a hot mess. Request a booth. And there were several napkins and a drink lid & straw left on the floor during our service. More...

We stopped to eat at Underwoods. After standing in line for 30 minutes, were told the credit machine was no longer working and they were only excepting Left disappointed as we were still 3 hours from home. our disappointment soon disappeared when we pulled into Humphrey Pete's. What a true gem. Cyndi our waitress was so attentive. Suggest the jalapeno pork chops which were fantastic and the T bone was great as well. It was a fun place and we will definitely be stopping in next we are going through Early/Brownwood. More...

I had the catfish and ribs.  The catfish was damn good!  I am not a "fish person" but wanted to try something different and was very pleasantly surprised.  I now wonder if any other catfish will be able to match this...  the ribs were super tender, the flavor was ok, but not on par with Famous Dave's ribs.  The vegetables seem to be the weak link here, I had corn and green beans.  Both were fine, don't get me wrong, my wife commented that they were probably just right out of the can,  there was no additional effort to make them stand out.  I can't wait to try other things here.

Excellent pricing, good service, tasty food. The atmosphere is a little corny by inviting all the same. It took about five minutes for someone to greet us and get us seated but it was right around shift change (I assume as much having worked in the restaurant industry).

Service was great from the minute I walked into the door. Everyone was nice and super helpful. Came here on a recommendation from the Lake Brownwood State Park while camping. Food is great, too much for me to eat and a great value for a local joint. I ordered chicken tenders, fries and a salad. The chicken Tasted great and I would say breaded fresh. The order came with about 2lbs of tenders. The fries were wedges and cooked perfectly. The salad was large for a dinner salad and good. Trust me, traveling for work has shown me a few bad salads.Friday night $2.50 House Margarita's perfect. I also had the Creamsicle and it was awesome. As for the atmosphere makes wish I was a local. The place filled up fast and everyone knew each other and had a great time. I grew up near Boston, MA and Cheers is a place everyone knew your name. Well that is Humphrey Pete's. Everything I asked for out correct and I feel that if your food was cooked wrong they would happily remake it for you. If you are in town or near, visit you will not go wrong. More...

I will add the 4th star due to the cool interior and river view covered patio. Service is OK. Steaks could be thicker and smaller in square inches of plate space. Value is average. A mix of families and dudes getting their drink on. It's small town Texas so no surprises. Second visit today. More...

I had a 10 hour drive from Lubbock to Houston and this was the best steak I have ever had.  It was mouthwatering.  I believe this is the best steakhouse ever because of the taste and atmosphere.  The Waiter was awesome and they gave a lot of food.  I loved the history and the decor here.  Even Sly Stallone loved the restaurant here.  I would drive back here again and  will always remember this meal.  I have never tried a steak like that before.  I don't know your secret is but keep doing it because it could not have been any better.Sincerely yoursCraig Herring More...

I read reviews back for a year before we stopped for dinner tonight. We sure are glad we stopped! Steak and shrimp were absolutely amazing!! Huge portions. Baked potato was a meal itself. My husband had chicken fried steak, the small one, and barely ate it all. He loved it and the mashed potatoes with the skin on which are his favorite. Had the Texas tornado for appetizer, would order that again! Our waitress Jordan was GREAT!! Super friendly and attentive. Would definitely come back!! More...

My husband and I were staying in Brownwood for our anniversary. We decided to try out Humphrey Pete's for dinner one night, and we were happy we did! First off, Kaylie was our waitress, and she was amazing! She was really nice and made sure we had a great anniversary. The food was so good! My husband had the jalapeno pork chop with wild rice and pinto beans. He loved it all. I had the southwest chicken with okra and mashed potatoes. Everything tasted so delicious! The fried okra was the best I have ever tasted. I would definitely recommend this place. We will be back when we come to Brownwood next year! More...

My wife is originally from Brownwood. She recommends me to check this restaurant after driving all way from San Antonio. Unbelievably, the steak and shrimp taste way better than Texas Road House. I highly recommend you guys to come and check out this restaurant. Friendly servers and foods are amazing - you can't miss it!!!!! More...



3 September 2018

This place is awesomely unique and was a perfect introduction to Texan hospitality on our first night in the Lone Star state. The decor is crazy cool, service is super friendly and attentive and the food is delicious (but HUGE!). We had cheap margaritas and beer, blackened catfish (yum) and southern chicken (delish). A fun night and would definitely go back! More...

My wife and I went and the food was great.  Plenty on your plate too!  The atmosphere is nostalgic to go along with the chicken fried steak and catfish. Real deal green beans were great!  We finished off the evening out back in the patio area where music was going and sometimes live band!  The place to be on Friday night or any other time for that matter.

I'm on a road trip headed to Dallas with a lifelong friend. Looking for a good hometown restaurant when we saw your place. Wasn't sure what to expect but as soon as we sat down Rudy greated us. Talked us into great Margaritas and told us about the menu. He was a top notch server. I manage a restaurant myself and tend to be judgemental. This place was great. Try the Philly Steak sandwich and ask for Rudy. More...

I had the 12oz ribeye. It was seasoned well and cooked perfectly. My husband had the classic chicken fried steak. Was enough for two meals. He brought half home. He also said he loved the crust and the meat was very tender. Will definitely go back. More...

Excellent food !!! The salad was cold and fresh !!!. The ribeye was excellent and I'm a snob when it comes to ribeye !!! I must brag on our waitress, Carla. We told her we were going to bless our food, without hesitation, she prayed with us !!! Most waitresses simply say, "ok", and then excuse themselves.. We will make this place our stop each time and will call ahead to insure that she's there !!! Blessings,. Rev Donnie J Neill More...

First time to dine here. Great food. Had the catfish. Waitress was prompt and attentive in her tasks. One negative was the shouting from the kitchen. Cooks having such a loud exchange disrupted the dining experience and it was during the entire time we were in the establishment. More...

Had a great time traveling through to Haskell from San Francisco. Our server- Charity - was very nice and accommodating, informing us about the wine club making great recommendations about the delicious mahi mahi tacos. The fried pickle ships were amazing as usual. I look forward to our next trip out. More...

Humphrey Pete's is probably the largest an most well known restaurant in Brownwood.  It has a very eclectic ambiance.  It's almost like an old barn and an antique store combined.  We only waited a minute or so for the server to come greet us but she seemed very apologetic that she hadn't come over immediately.  We may be big city folk, but we're in no hurry!  I ordered the pulled pork sandwich that turned out to be so huge that I could only eat half of it.  I loved that they had peanuts to eat for before the meal, but we were confused if we should throw the shells on the ground or put them back in the basket with the other shells.  They sang a very loud happy birthday song to a patron in the restaurant, so if you feel like being embarrassed or embarrassing someone else for their birthday, this would be a great place to do that.

I visit Humphrey Petes often and normally get good service and good food. My only complaint is they booked a band, a really good band The Wild Turkeys, on a Friday Night and did not have the wait staff or kitchen staff to handle the amount of people who came out to support the local talent! To make matters worse this was the second time the Turkeys had played and they had the same problem the first time! The little waitress we had was doing her best trying to take care of everyone but she was overwhelmed. The tables they have outside in the band area are not very comfortable to sit at, look like some old picnic tables they salvaged, and there are no fans! It is a good idea trying to set up a stage and showcase local talent but it needs some work! More...

Got the steak and seafood and both meats were cooked as expected, also had a lil smokey flavor which I enjoyed. Both seasoned well. Now for the downside...I called in my order, only to be told when I arrived, they no longer carried the special I requested (to know this up front would have been great or a callback). The corn was pretty bland which surprised me considering how well salted the non-sides were (glad I have the salt n pepper pack). Lastly, the steak had a considerable amount of fat on it. I will,m; however, certainly come back & try something else. More...

Interesting atmosphere with antiques and stuffed animals.  Went for lunch- had a bowl of gumbo and Greek salad for around $10.  We shared of basket of delicious fried catfish!  Able to substitute baked potato for fries!  Mayo based cole slaw okay but I prefer vinegar base.  Great waitress!  Today I want to try their steaks.  Now remember this is Texas so all the tv's were either sports or Fox News.

Stopped in randomly after passing by it every time I drive between Austin and Lubbock. Looks like a neat place and I figured just "OK" food. I was astonished by the food, no joke. I ordered a 8oz Ribeye with sauteed mushrooms , baked potato and a side salad...salad was well...a salad...The potato was cooked perfectly. That rib-eye though...seasoned great and not overpowering like a chain restaurant , beat the pants off the Salt-grass steak I paid twice the price for in San Marcos. Mattie, My server was really great. Drink was never empty, food came out promptly and she was there anytime I needed. Great Food. Great Service. In and out for a steak on the road for $20 and only took 30 Minutes from in the door to out the door. Will definitely stop in every time I come through. More...

I was in Brownwood, Tx. for one evening. I was wanting a good steak and decided on Humphrey Petes after the hotel staff recommended it.I had the ribeye ( medium rare) with a baked potato and salad. The steak was cook perfect and my meal was wonderful !I never ask to speak to the Manager, but this time , I did. The Owner came and I told him how good the food was .I will be back to visit soon !

The cinnamon butter made up for the chicken fried steak. It wasn't horrible but wasn't the best I've had and the rice wasn't that great. Lunch specials were a plus and so was the service. More...

Humphrey Petes is our favorite restaurant in the area.  Food is always great!  Last trip I had the steak and grilled shrimp.  Steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The shrimp was grilled perfectly too (many steakhouses seem to over cook the grilled shrimp - not here).  Save room for dessert!!! More...

Best steak I've ever had in my life! There's even an autographed photo of Sylvester Stallone there saying it himself. Can't go wrong with the steak or the ultimate cheeseburger (which has a fried mozzarella patty in it).

We received excellent service and the food was good. Since it was our first visit, we wanted to try a little of everything. The cheese sticks and chicken strips are great.  They are homemade and delicious. The ranch was good dipping. The stuffed jalepenos were good, not great. The fried pickles were thick cut with heavy breading. If you like them that way, you'll love them; that's just not my preference, but they were good. My husband and I split a ribeye. It was cooked to a true medium; we were totally impressed with that. It was a good steak, but seemed a little watery, like it had been frozen before. The sweet potato was excellent and the loaded baked potato was good, as well. This may sound like a small thing, but the kids meal came with Teddy Graham's, which totally impressed my kids. All in all, great meal. We'll go there again. More...

Humphrey Pete's offers an excellent selection of quality foods at a reasonable price!! The environment is welcoming, and the restaurant is well decorated and clean with plenty of space for larger families. The service is great, and the wait time for food is short. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone simply because the food is delicious, and the menu has enough variety to please all! The restaurant offers large portions of steak, seafood, burgers, sandwiches, Mexican food, and more! My personal favorite is the Chicken Club Ranch! The buns on the sandwiches and burgers are moist with a hint of sweetness. The meat is mesquite grilled and always cooked perfectly! I read complaints of smokiness, I have never even noticed cigarette smoke in or around the building. I am from the Dallas area and Humphrey Pete's is easily 5 x better than the typical meal in the city...for a quarter of the price! A must try for all!!! More...

Been to this place a couple of times before I moved away from home. The fried catfish was great, the fried pickles were spicy and good. Prices are reasonable and the rolls are warm and yummy, though I prefer the honey spread over the cinnamon spread. More...

My daughter and I came here for dinner during the week.  We came around 6 pm so it was not crowded.  We had the catfish.  It was delicious,  cooked perfectly.  The baked sweet potatoes and rolls were excellent. The ambiance was very nice.  The waitstaff was friendly and efficient. No complaints.  Will definitely come back. More...

Went there twice during a two week stay in Brownwood. I had an 8 oz sirloin one night and the grilled mahi mahi the other night. I asked for medium and thought the steak was cooked very close to that, not too rare, not too well done. Good flavor for the sirloin. The mahi mahi was good as well and a decent size portion. Steak fries were good as well.There are several TV's so it is not a bad place to go to watch a game and the wait staff was kind for the most part. More...

This is the ideal place to grab a drink and watch a ball game in town.(Not as stingy about beer as BDUBS, and a premium alternative to Chilis)).  The food is quality  but I usually just get appetizers or a burger.  For a full meal, I recommend one of their steaks, or the No Ka Oi fish tacos. I usually get Petes Beans and a Loaded baked potato as the sides.  They also have a nice patio dining area that overlooks the Pecan Bayou.  Get a beer-ita and enjoy the afternoon. More...

A great, eclectic, steak and American food restaurant right outside of Brownwood in Early, Tx. We stopped by for lunch on the way from DFW area to Marfa. Couldn't have been happier with our lunch. My Chicken Fried steak was spot on, great crust, real cubed steak, tended toward the chewy side but still very much recommended. Super fries and beans on the side. Wife had the pulled pork sandwich and a side of well seasoned green beans. There was nothing left on her plate. There were many menu items we'd love to try when we next pass thru that area. BTW, atmosphere and service were great. More...

Well, it gets a 5 for taste of food and a 3 for service so overall I have it a 4.  Seriously, I don't know if I just got the primo steak of the night or what, but I ordered an 8 oz ribeye med-well and it was one of the best steaks I've ever had!!!!  Got a loaded baked potato and veggies.  Yum yum yum!  Thing is, we were a party of 5...snicker... And it took FOREVER!  We drank 3 beers each  and had a man that was our DD who only had tea and they cut us off saying it was the law.  I'm not sure how things work in a dry county, but what harm were we doing?  We weren't loud or anything.  Oh well.  However, the lady forgot out chips and salsa and then she didn't want to take it off the bill.  She re-ran the card and blah blah blah...just don't go unless you've got some time on your hands.

A great hometown restaurant. We were headed for Underwood's just out of tradition when I saw Pete's. Lets try it. Glad we did. We wanted something light so had the soup and 1/2 sandwich. Great taste and big portions. Filled me up. But next time I will try the Friday special. Frog Legs!! Place is very interesting with plenty to look at while you wait on your food. We'll be back.

The first time I ever went to Humphrey Pete's was with my wife's parents and if a restaurant can make you forget that you're dining with your in-laws and turn your focus to the most delicious hamburger you've ever had, then that's a fine restaurant indeed.The second time I went to Humphrey Pete's was for my birthday because my wife knew how I much I loved that hamburger. I was worried that maybe the first burger had been a fluke or maybe I'd misremembered how amazing it was - but the second burger was every bit as good as the first. In fact, I've been to many of the restaurants on those lists of the best burger joints in Texas, and my tastebuds say that Humphrey Pete's has them all beat.It's not a five-star, choose-the-right-fork-or-be-embarrassed kind of place. I wouldn't be surprised if a group of kids threw the place together with a bunch of junk they bought at a flea-market circa 1963. Like, there's an enormous picture of George Washington on one of the walls, and just above him in the rafters you'll find a life-sized alligator (or maybe a crocodile?), and they're both surrounded by hoards of vintage sporting equipment. The sum of all this debris is a pleasant atmosphere that's just the right amount of distracting, especially if you're dining with a two-year-old that takes the time to point out all the baseballs on the wall instead of complaining that he's ready to go.On both of my trips to Humphrey Pete's, the waitresses used just the right amount of flattery, so as to not make my wife jealous, but still make me feel like I was 30 pounds lighter and a little more dashing. I couldn't have tipped them enough.Humphrey Pete's is kind of place you remember. Twenty years from now when I'm making a list of the best burgers I've ever had, Humphrey Pete's will be at the top, and no matter how far I live from Brownwood, Texas, I'm sure I'll consider hopping on a plane and flying out there for another burger.

This place is original to Brownwood. I was told it was a slaughter house at one time. There is a room that still has a panel in it with a wall mural of The Wizard of Oz.  There is a patio in the back that's nice and an outdoor play area for the kids. Small cozy bar in the back....smoking is allowed. They have homemade cheese sticks that are awesome. My favorite meal is the jalapeño pork chops! They are grilled with a jalapeño seasoning. They also have a chipotle grilled chicken sandwich that's amazing!! More...

We read the reviews from others and were a little apprehensive but decided to try it for ourselves. Our server was fantastic and the food was great too. There were only two negatives. One was the fact that you could smell the smoking section in the nonsmoking section. Two, the inside could be spruced up a bit. We would eat there again. More...

Great Steak!!. We are out of town visiting from Killeen and decided to give Humphrey Pete's a try. All I can say is that the food was awesome!! I had the 12oz ribeye and it had great flavor and nice and tender. My wife had the jalapeno shrimp with steak and they both were good. My son had the ultimate cheeseburger and it was the bomb!! Next time we come to watch our son play soccer at Howard Payne University this is a mandatory stop for us. More...

Really impressed!! Stopped in this place on the way through Brownwood.  The atmosphere is really neat inside. The pulled pork tacos were delicious and more than I could eat. The tortillas were homemade and the beans on the side had just enough kick. My boyfriend ordered the sirloin and shrimp and said it was really good. Best sweet potato he has ever had. I only give it 4 stars instead of 5 because our dinner salads were really small and mine had some soggy, old lettuce in it. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone wanting a good, hearty meal in a fun atmosphere. More...

The mahi mahi was excellent but those fried cheese sticks they served were the biggest I have ever seen and the best tasting.So good decided to come in again. Apparently they allow smoking in here. The smell of smoke was the on,y negative during my 2nd visit More...

Humphrey Pete's. Stopped there on a whim. Nice menu, and the chicken fried steak made my wife very happy, while the jalapeno pork chop really made me happy. Very informal, and friendly place with 'junk yard south' decor, with stuffed alligator, and farm implements on the walls. Everything was really good, and the bill was only about $25 with a 20% tip. I will probably go to sample their steaks before we leave town. More...

What its like when I eat there. I always order the chicken, okra, fries, cause that's the only thing I will eat but they serve you right away. I can't honestly say what the best food they got cause its all great I just order the main thing I like. Its just nice to eat something warm and toasty going into your mouth and realizing what your eating. More...

The rolls are great.  If you get older ones then send them back (politely, of course) because the fresh hot rolls are amazing.  My husband and i conquered a Three-Peat one day and it was absolutely amazing.  I recommend going at lunch because the lunch specials are at great prices.  DO NOT eat the mozzarella sticks.  They taste like dirt.

Humphrey Pete's is a good place to have a meal.  It is by no means award winning, yet by small town texas standards it is nice.  You also get free peanuts as you walk in! Try the fried pickels or fried green beans. The sweet potato option is a good choice. Recommended. More...

This place is fantastic!  I had the 16 oz. Ribeye and it was cooked to perfection.  It was done just right and the spiced rub was excellent.  It was honestly one of the better steaks I've had at a restaurant.  My co-worker had the same and he agreed.  I had green beans and fried okra with my steak and both of those were good too.The only reason it did not get 5 stars from me was because of service.  We were seated promptly, and our food came promptly.  But, once our food was delivered we did not see the server again until he brought the check.  I like having my drink refilled as often as necessary.  So, that was one star gone!But, overall the food was fantastic and I would definitely go back. More...

One of my favorites. The jalapeno bun is reason enough to visit! Wait staff is always quick to refill drinks, food is delivered quickly, and everyone can find something they'll like on the menu.

Good, inexpensive food at great prices.  Friendly staff.  Great bar.  If you're visiting Brownwood and want a place to eat a nice, big meal, Humphrey Pete's is it.



24 September 2009

Will definitely go back!!!. My parents and I ate at Humphrey Pete's a few weeks ago, and it was wonderful! I had the jalapeno grilled pork chop - wow is all I can say! It wasn't spicy, just had a great jalapeno flavor in the background. Perfectly grilled and moist - I'm not sure if I'll ever try anything else there :) My parents split a steak, and it too was a really good steak. If you're in the area, you should definitely give this place a try! More...



24 August 2009

One of my favorite places to eat. I reccommend anything other than seafood platter, that's not their speciality. Everything else is GREAT!
