We had 4 at our table for dinner. We ordered different things, and each had an ordinary cocktail. The food was OK. I was expecting the bill to be in the $70-80 range, but the drinks pushed it up close to $100. If you need to use the bathroom, when in the bar area, you have to go outside, through... More

I've actually been here a couple of times, and I guess for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Most of the food was very good. The exception is the nachos.....they are different....and excellent. Made with a fried flour tortilla, they are kind of like a large Mexican pizza. Very, very yummy. The prices are neither too expensive, nor too cheap. The wait... More

We camped nearby and wanted a sit down breakfast, the Crow Bar and Cafe hit the spot! We sat on the patio, but they also have indoor dining. Food was inexpensive and very good. Portions were more than ample. I highly recommend the fresh squeezed juice. Old wagon sits out front for photo opts. Enjoy!

Stopped in for lunch and a drink. The wings were good and they are served with a heaping pile of hot french fries. I saw several people who ordered sandwiches and all of them were nicely portioned and also served with ample french fries. The quesadillas looked awesome and are very nicely proportioned. The milkshakes are made to order and... More

Silly to add more to other reviews but what the heck. Good food in an unexpected place. Burgers and fries were very good, especially the one with the pepper on top. Make it your stop before or after Death Valley.

Flew in at closing after a long day in the park and delightfully they cooked us up some burgers and some amazing french fries.

It's great to discover a decent place to eat in the desert. The food is simple--burgers. sandwiches, great fries and decent salads. Luckily, the ingredients are fresh and the chef knows how to prepare things well. There are Mexican options, a vegetarian option and fresh salads. There's a full bar, with beer on tap.

We stayed at Tecopa and since there was not much to dine here we scouted and found this place a few miles away. It was a quaint diner with only one waitress to manage the place even though it had a cafe and a saloon in each section. We ordered the Grilled Salmon and Rainbow Trout as we're seafood lovers....

For a place in the desert, they do a very good job. Good food, delivered fast. Clean & bright inside. Plenty of cool things to photograph in that area. Gas up first though, fuel is really expensive in that town.

Nice people, very friendly and welcoming to visitors, and good food. I had a great burger and yummy fries and my husband loved his club sandwich. This quaint cafe was built right over the original railroad tracks. A lovely stop on a long journey.
