Great music

The food was average, but the entertainment was great. We were lucky to hit a night when several local ladies were performing, 6-8 different groups/singles. All were fabulous.

After a long day at the Big Bend National Park -- a quick ride to the Terlingue Ghost Town and dinner at Starlight Theater was just perfect -- outstanding menu -- some live music AND great service from Asheley Baker -- top-notch server.

First, the food is good. Our group ordered the rib-eye steak, chicken satay, chicken salad and pork medallion and all were very tasty. There was live music the night we were there and my daughter and I got to visit with the singer/song writer who was a lovely and very talented young woman. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable of... More

This place is a true gem. It is steeped in history, both the venue and the structure. Incredible food but in an eclectic and casual setting. Had live music playing, yet still able to have a conversation over dinner. Local art displayed near the stage where the expired mayor of Lajitas is displayed. I had the chicken fried wild boar...

Very rustic but the food and service are very up to date. Had the chicken fried wild boar and the wife had the quail. Next door is the terlingua trading company for souvenir shopping. Bring you camera for the great views from the porch.

We were visiting the area so we decided to have dinner there (recommended by local people). Nice atmosphere, very nice live music, good food. A must-go place if you are in Terlingua or not far from the ghost town.

This restaurant was highly suggested by others who have traveled to Big Bend. There was plenty on the menu to take care of any needs. There was also live music each night with one or two people playing guitar and singing. My friend and I went there twice for dinner and it was good.

A must do in Terlingua. Probably the best food in town, although not five star gourmet. Lots of character, busy, lots of characters too.
