There’s nothing like a solid surf ‘n’ turf meal, complete with fresh seafood and mouthwatering red meat. Luckily for us here at Carrington Oaks, we are surrounded by some of the best seafood and steakhouses in Buda, Texas. Read on for where to find superb surf and turf options in Buda.

Beaux Southern Seafood

This small but mighty food truck, Beaux Southern Seafood, is an absolute must-try in Buda, Texas. For the ultimate surf and turf meal, try the N.Y. Strip and Lobster, or for an out-of-the-box appetizer, the Crawfish Queso is downright delicious. Shrimp creole. Fried calamari. An amazing soft-shell crab and shrimp basket. There are so many good menu items to choose from at Beaux’s, where Chef Beau serves with over 20 years of experience in the food industry.

Brooklyn's Down South

A vibrant restaurant and bar on Main Street in Buda, Brooklyn’s Down South serves a little bit of everything, while focusing on an eclectic menu featuring traditional American, Cajun/Southern food, and some items from Mexico. Whether you’re feeling a little meat, a little seafood, or a little of both, their menu has options to please any palate. Try an order of crab cakes, served with remoulade sauce. Or go all out on the chicken fried steak served with country-style gravy. 

Logan's Roadhouse

Logan’s Roadhouse in Buda offers the best in American fare, with plenty of steaks, burgers, salads, seafood, chicken, and ribs to choose from. This down-to-earth chain is family-friendly, so you know there is something to please every palate. At the Roadhouse, they take pride in their steaks, serving only butcher-selected, grain-fed beef, grilled on an open flame with real mesquite wood. For a healthy dose of protein and vitamin A and D, order one of their fish entrees, like the Mesquite Wood-Grilled Salmon, or the Coastal Carolina Shrimp. You can always make it a combo by adding more food to your main entree. 

Mud Bugs

With Cajun food like you’ve never experienced, Mud Bugs is dedicated to bringing elevated Cajun cuisine to the table with a purposeful edge. With true Cajun classics like gumbo, shrimp and grits, and redfish pontchartrain, there’s a reason that locals flock to this locally owned food joint. There are plenty of options to get your seafood on, including the Sweetfire Salmon and The Grateful Shrimp, to name a few. And if you’re craving a savory meat dish, The Butterboy is a half-pounder of center-cut prime beef tenderloin. 

Make your next takeout night full of all things good in the food world – surf ‘n’ turf – at one of these four restaurants. Visit the Carrington Oaks blog for more restaurants to try and things to do in Buda.
