Interesting place to grab a beer in Terlingua. It has an underground feel, a great patio and good beer selection. Friendly service

This place is very fun to just check out. Your eating in a cave. Some great people watching here😊. We had the chips and salsa, the salsa was homemade and good. We also had the pizza which was great!

The underground atmosphere is too cool. The Filet Minot is priced very low and is amazing. The awesome decor inside keeps you looking around every corner for something different. The outdoor patio is also very cool. Must stop and eat at this place after 4...More

While staying in the ghost town of Terlingua, we ate breakfast here three mornings in a row. Delicious breakfast burritos, excellent coffee and a dog laying in the fountain on the patio! What more could you ask for?

This place gets lots of fuss for being an interesting place to visit but it is nothing special. You enter through what looks like a cellar door into the restaurant. That part is unique. There are some sofas and tables for hanging out, a bar,...More

It can be easy to drive right by La Kiva (opens @ 5:00pm) on the way to the Ghost Town but don't! Stop in here for food and drink! This bar/restaurant is kinda quirky and has a sad (recent) history but it's big, a cool...More
