From the homemade salsa to the great live music, this is a great place to eat in Terlingua. Friendly staff and good food made this place a must visit during a recent trip to the Big Bend area. I look forward to returning.

Stayed at the El Dorado motel next door and ate here a couple of times in the evening. The food was well cooked and decent and there was a wide selection of beers. The staff and locals were very friendly too.
