Enter this subterranean oasis and you’ll discover one of the treasures of the Big Bend! Rustic decor and artifacts surround you as you share the experience with local denizens and visitors alike. The patio is awesome. Great burgers and steaks along with a unique bar make Kiva among the best dining experiences in the Terlingua region!

It is a bit eclectic, but pretty cool. I had the Caveman burger and it was very tasty. Service was ok but the waiter was new and others were very nice and friendly. I will go there again next time I go to Big Bend.

Great spot for a meal or a drink. We ate dinner here and had the fish and chips special. The fish tasted great. Service was very attentive and entertainment was provided by a singer playing guitar.

Great steaks. Quirky restaurant but quite expensive for the area. Service was ok but staff could have been friendlier.

Enjoyable and interesting place to eat.

The burgers and pizza were good and moderately priced for the area. Food arrival was slower than what you expect in other parts but the whole Terlingua experience is real laid back, relaxed and sorta like "island time".

Service was attentive and friendly and the live music good followed by karaoke was really entertaining.

I'd eat here again!
