“Who says you can’t lose weight eating at a Steakhouse “ That’s a bold claim to make, but Hoffbrau Steaks has proven it to be a fact. Catering to the needs of ALL their customers, Hoffbrau Steaks has developed a reputation of not only serving great steaks, but of building menus that are friendly to a variety of diets and lifestyle choices from Gluten Free to Vegetarian. The past several months they have had the pleasure of seeing a regular customer not only make a huge lifestyle change, but to continue frequenting Hoffbrau Steaks on a regular basis.
Sue, or “Ms. Sweet Potato” as the Hoffbrau Steaks team affectionately calls her, has battled her weight for most of her life. Her doctor was concerned and warned her that her blood sugar readings were dangerously high. Sue was not to be undone, and knew she could make the changes but how could she do it right with the holiday season coming up. No time of year is easy to hear that news, but the holidays bring food, family traditions, recipes, and treats that aren’t easy to avoid. Sue immediately started investigating how to loose weight and stay content.
The sweet potato kept popping up in her investigations, and soon became her best friend, providing not only great taste, but also important nutrients and vitamins she was missing. Sue was elated, and fell in love with the versatile and delicious root vegetable that let her “go out to eat and still feel like she was getting a great meal.” Since Sue is not just a regular customer, frequenting the Granbury location up to 5 days a week, she worked diligently with the Hoffbrau Steaks staff to find the right fit. Not only did it work, she literally lost a lot of weight eating Steak and a Sweet Potato.
The best part of this entire story is that over the last 100 days, and during the holiday season, Sue has lost 3 pant and shirt sizes, and a total of 35 lbs. According to Sue, one of Hoffbrau Steaks favorite fans, this is all entirely possible. Sue has a few tips that make it easy. She says “Skip the butter, Go light on bread, No sweets, and eat more sweet potatoes!”
Sue is not cavalier about her attitude toward her favorite things, and wanted to share her victory with others to encourage good eating habits and a great start to a New Year! When we recently asked her why she loved Hoffbrau Steaks, she said, “I enjoy the people, they make me feel at home (5 days a week)…I’ve eaten so many great Hoffbrau Steaks! Who says you can’t lose weight eating at a steakhouse!” To try Sue’s specialty of Steak and Sweet Potato, ask for the Sue Special the next time you visit.

Early to mid 1800’s German settlers, who helped develop the Hill Country of South Texas, also recreated their beloved “Hoffbrau’s” or “beer gardens” where local townspeople, farmers and ranchers gathered to enjoy hearty meals and brewed beverages in a setting that was naturally casual yet humming with conversation and warm friendly service. What began as a “Hoffbrau” in South Texas truly was the original of the Texas Hill Country Steakhouse…a tradition that our family has continued since opening Hoffbrau Steaks in 1978.
