    Brookshire Reviews

    1 review
    I like the cost of living is low. However, in some neighborhoods you can see that no up keep happens. Houses look like no upgrades have happened since they have been built. The town itself is really lovely and friendly. Brookshire does not have a lot of variety for food or grocery stories. Residents have to go in town for groceries unless you go to the high priced one grocery store in town.
