Chisos Mountains Lodge Restaurant in Big Bend National Park is a rip. Expensive and mediocre food with skimpy portions, poorly prepared. Okay, there is a view if you get a view table. No eating on the deck. Don't eat here.

Absolutely love the soup and salad bar. Two freshly homemade soup offerings every day. Best views for lunch since you’re in the National Park!

Very good breakfast spread costing about 10-11$. Wish there were options for Vegetarians and Vegans. Food was good though

We stayed at the Chisos Mountain Lodge and came here for dinner. As the only restaurant in the park, my expectations weren't too high, and we were just looking for a hot dinner after a very cold day hiking. We were pleasantly surprised. Prices seemed...More
