This little gem is tucked away off the beaten path on CA Hwy 127 near the Nevada border and on the way to Death Valley. If you are heading to Death Valley from Pahrump, NV, it's worth taking a short route change -- head out of Pahrump on Hwy 372 instead of Bell Vista. Shoshone is a short drive of... More

Stopped in Shoeshone for lunch on our way out of Death Valley. A great place to stretch your legs, fill up (yourselves and your vehicles) and cool off. The Crowbar is nicely air conditioned and was a welcome relief from experiencing Death Valley on motorcycles. Friendly staff and good food. Too hot outside to try the rattlesnake chili although will... More

We stopped at the gas station for some water after our adventure in Death Valley and was told that the crowbar across the street was good food. And they were right. My wife had the Taco salad and I had a beef sandwich on rye bread which was one of the best sandwiches I've had in a long time. I... More

...that even though Shoshone is right next door to Tecopa, we didn't even think about hitting the hot springs. We did stop for a nice ice tea and some yummy, crispy French fries. The hamburgers looked good for the middle of the desert, and the local Sheriff's deputy highly recommended the place (always eat where cops eat...they know what's decent... More

Have stopped here many times for beverages and a bite to eat. Almost like a museum inside. Good food and service.

The Crow Bar is basically the only place to eat in Shoshone in addition to the nights Pastels Bistro in Tecopa is not open. they have huge breakfasts and great sandwiches. Full bar makes it the only bar I've found in the two towns. The staff is very friendly.

We were about to starve when we came across this cafe. It was decorated with old items from the past and the museum is right next door. We had hamburgers and I had The Sunshine which is really a type of grilled cheese. Their potato salad was wonderful as well. great overall experience and good food!

Good food, good service, fair price. Buddy and I had left Bishop, CA that morning, rode through Death Valley. We were needing a break and some food. We sure did not mind finding a place to cool off. We decided to take a chance and give it a try. After all it was not like there were many choices. We... More
