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

This was our third visit; a must stop when near Death Valley. Despite being the only nearby restaurant, the food quality is excellent and the prices are reasonable. We have had breakfast and lunch here and everything has been good. Great omelets and pancakes as well as Mexican selections. Order something with their great homemade salsa, which they should sell...

We had dinner and breakfast here. The food was excellent, especially the dinner. Our waitress Marla was fantastic. Don't miss this little gem if you are passing through Shoshone.

On our way to Death Valley National Park, we drove through the village of Shoshone. It was lunch time so we stepped into the Crowbar Cafe and Saloon. WOW! As we walked in the waitress was serving a customer the most amazing slice of apple pie with vanilla ice cream, we were sold! The menu offers something for everyone. Appetizers,... More

Dropped in for a mid-afternoon snack [the platter of nachos was enormous] to find a really lively, well run little place with a lively mix of locals and tourists. The owners were anxious to please and very attentive to their customers

I get a hoot out of the rankings...Number one in Shoshone. Hell..it''s the ONLY. hahahaha...but, if it weren't the only one, it should still be #1. It's American road food at it's best. The usual suspects, nothing OMG this is so outrageous...but I will say that if you have any reason at all to be looking for a lunch or... More

Two large groups overwhelmed the kitchen. It took over two hours for our orders. So be prepared to wait. Of course the service is wonderful and quirky. While waiting, we walked around and enjoyed the small museum's outside displays. The food was good. I recommend the burgers and fries if the place is crowded.

We loved the food and ambience here. This is not just an out-of-the-way place that serves boring food. The owners have traveled all over the world and know what good food is. I had the trout dinner and my friends had the fajita dinner, and we enjoyed it. We also had wonderful breakfasts here.
