Even though Badu House is only open for special events, usually live music, it is still one of the special places in Llano, TX. Been several times and it's always great. Last time we had Italian Nachos and made a meal of them. I can...More

If you are in Llano you need to try this place. I really think this is the only decent place to dine. The Guinness Style Chicken Fried Steak was wonderful and they had a decent beer menu. They have a cute patio area with mature...More

We prefer to sit outside (they have a friendly cat who hangs around)............on certain nights they have live music. Haven't tried the food, but they have a HUGE selection of beers! It's fun to try a new one each time.

Reopened under new owners late in Nov. 2010 . Trip advisor has it listed as a hotel, but currently it is not. Here is our review : Psstt. Here's a tip for gourmands, wine lovers, beer aficionados: The Badu House (under new ownership) has excellent fun, food, wine, beer, that goes well with the mysterious history and fabulous atmosphere!

On our first try of The Badu House last night we were impressed with the variety of beers and wines, and the... tasty light menu prepared by a chef in training who has created some great tasting items sure to tempt your palate!

The Badu House staff has done an outstanding job creating a new, special experience for Hill Country visitors and locals alike!
