I didn't get these reviews. There was nothing particularly special about the food which included perhaps the worst hamburger I've ever eaten. The French fries were however among the best. The stuffed avocado relied heavily on a bag of corn chips poured on top. Finish it with weak drinks from the bar. Wasted meal in the land of good food.

The chicken salad & the quiche was excellent at the restaurant. The shops had some unique & interesting merchandise. Didn't see anything enough to buy though. An interesting place to visit & have lunch

We were told this was a good place and it was for the most part. I was a little confused about where it was located inside the Hotel Indigo. Well, duh...right in front of me. It literally is kinda in the lobby. Atmosphere was nice but felt the location was strange. Service was pretty good but maybe short handed? Very... More

We had dinner here when we visited Waco for the weekend. Probably the best meal we had in Waco. I'm usually not a fan of hotel restaurants just because they can be hit or miss, but this was definitely a hit. Not only was the food amazing, but our waiter was extremely courteous and knowledgeable. He was the kind of... More

The food and beverage choices are very good here. The service however is not so great. The slow forgetful staff is frustrating.

Located in the Hotel Indigo, this little gem was a great find. The waiter was awesome: friendly and hospitable. We loved chatting with him while he served us.

Brazos Bar & Grill is a great, friendly upscale bar inside the Indigo Hotel in downtown Waco. The food is outstanding. This is not your typical hotel fare. The green chili queso is killer as is the coconut shrimp. Chicken nachos and avocado tacos are favorites. Chicken Montelongo, chicken breast stuffed with baby spinach and Buffalo mozzarella topped with shiitake... More
