Went here after off-roading in the desert. This is one of the coolest places to get a drink or something to eat. There was a live band that was very good. Will be back again.

The road is rough to travel so take it slow but the atmosphere, food, drinks and music were great. Brought my family (kids - 16,14,8) they enjoyed the desert experience of exploring and all enjoyed the food!

This is a great bar off the beaten path. Little difficult to get to by car, all dirt road but was definitely worth the trip out. Great music, food, drinks! Plenty of places to sit. They had horse back riding. You can hike around. Next...More

The ride is a little rough, but the place is worth it. The food is great and so is the live music. It is a very rustic, outdoor atmosphere and it takes you back to the mining days.

You will be fine. We have gone in a jeep, on 4wheelers and in a car. Lots of people go there on motorcycles. It is not steep, just a little dusty.
