Super Cool, down-to-earth interior, altho with noisy sports on the TVs, I'd enjoy the interior the less: how about local music only!?

Nothing on the menu attracted my attention (no other Tex-Mex), so we left. Too bad.

I happened to stop in when they have their BBQ.... It was so good..... Mouth Watering Brisket, Pork Ribs, Chicken and Sausage. Best Place in Marfa to have a Beer.... non pretentious.... a place where the locals go....
