I loved the burger I had and the draft beer was exceptionally fresh and cold. Really hit the spot after driving through the desert! LOVED this restaurant! Breakfast was an outstanding buffet. The cook prepared a LOT of food, and everything I had was great.

I love this place, so when passing through to Death Valley, from Lone Pine, always stop in for a bite. Most tourists don't know that these folks host a Free (donations accepted) Thanksgiving dinner for locals and travelers alike. The site is at 2000 feet, so not quite as hot as Stovepipe, but still pretty warm some months.

We stayed across the street at the RV park and wondered over after dark for dinner, the place was packed so we sat at the bar. We quickly noticed there was only one server, Anastasiya D, she was very good at keeping track of who was next as it was seat yourself. We asked if she was alone and she... More

Waitress was very helpful and willing to chat and give advice on what to do in a limited time. Sat outside and guess what yep it was hot. They have rental... More

A really fun place to eat. Bar was busy and staff very friendly. Given it is in the middle of nowhere it was fun to be with so many fellow travellers. Food good

We ate here as we stayed in the hotel. The burgers and pizza were very good after a long drive. They have a screened patio that goes around 2 sides of the building. So you can sit outside without worrying about bugs ect. This restaurant and gas station and hotel are run by a family who purchased it when it... More

We were tired and needing food, so stopped here. Food was actually surprisingly good. We have fish and chips, not greasy at all. Prices are a bit high, but I think that's because they are so far away that food costs more to bring in.

This little resort is on the west side of DVNP up in the hills. The day we visited there were flowers blooming along the road and blooming cacti right at this restaurant. We were almost the only customers for a late lunch on a weekday. The waitress was friendly and made us feel comfortable. It's a relaxing atmosphere on the... More
