A small hole in the wall bar that is all about Beer and Chili. Friendly desert personalities are just a hello away in this place. It is right out of central casting! Great chili and beer to wash the desert dust down ....

The food is top notch. The inside is very smokey, the outside seating area had many, many flies and bird droppings. honestly don't know how a health inspection could have ever been done. On the other hand, we have eaten there many times and never got ill.

When we opened the door a dog started barking and came to the door to greet us. She ended up being friendly but wouldn't let you pet her. Her name was Hooker and a plaque on the wall says "We pay the bills, Hooker runs the bar". The inside is very small with a 4 seat bar, a small round... More

It's a cool funky bar that specializes in chili, burgers and cold beer. Looks like they have won a few cook offs for their chili. I personally found it to be very good, not too spicy. It's family owned and operated, with all the family being very friendly. The bar is small and can be smokey, but there is a... More

Burgers, hotdogs and delicious chili in various combinations in a funky Old West saloon. With a dog named Hooker guarding the door. The food was good and the beer was cold. Oh, yeah, it is a saloon so there’s also a full line of adult beverages. This was a real experience. But what made this special for us was that... More

The sign outside pretty much sums up this place - "chili and beer, it's not just for breakfast!" This late 19th century wooden building is a small bar with attached outdoor courtyard. It is full of 'Wild West' memorabilia and feels 100% authentic. The owner is exceptionally friendly. I sat outside in the courtyard overlooking the main road here in... More

Three couples traveling from Las Vegas through Death Valley. Instead of turning around and heading back the same way we decided to go through Beatty. We are so glad we did. We actually stopped in to the bar next door first. The two bikers at the bar told us only pizza was available for lunch there and suggested we go... More
