A Fantastic find in Terlingua. Great restaurant, live music, great service, great food, lovely glass of wine. All totally unexpected in this part of the world. Met a few locals. Will be a highlight of our trip to this great US State.

On a busy spring break weeknight, we hind out on the outside patio bat until our table was ready. Great food and drink. Live entertainment. Highly recommended. When in Terlingua you must visit the Starlight.
