We popped in on a Wednesday night for drinks and ended up having dinner, too! The Buckhorn is the only thing open in the evenings in Pinos Altos and it's a ton of fun.

This has a bit of the ambience of an old-fashioned saloon. It looks pretty run down from the outside but the inside is much better. There are large fireplaces and lots of wood. It is decorated with animal heads and lots of old western memorabilia....More
