Big time in Big Bend

A fine locus for exploring Big Bend, with a prime location, good cabins and a quality restaurant with a view.

The best part of eating at Chisos Mountains Lodge Restaurant is definitely the view. The food is also pretty good and the service as well. It just takes really long to find a table because there are lots of people waiting in line to have lunch or dinner there. It is definitely worthed it!

Read lots of reviews. Ups and downs. I went, I saw, I ate, I drank, I enjoyed. It's a National Park Lodge and restaurant. it is a busy place. Go, sit at the bar, have a drink or NOT. Over two nights at the restaurant, it was busy...staff worked like dogs to accommodate everyone. We had great meals, great service,... More

The menu had several selections and the salad bar was fresh and had many selections. The staff was overworked, but really nice and professional. I was surprised at the quality this far from "civilization" and sources for the kitchen.

This was our second visit to this lovely place and we were just as enchanted by it as we were the first time. The views from the dining room and the patio are gorgeous and make for a wonderful dining experience. The menu has many interesting items on it and quite a few healthy and low-fat offerings. The food was... More

Two meals with two different personalities. The evening meal was very crowded with excellent food and great service, Breakfast was a buffet in plastic warming containers where it was difficult to get the wait staff to bring coffee, but the daylight view from the dining room was spectacular.

You have to remember that you are in the middle of nowhere, so you are not going to get a gourmet experience. The prices are OK, but certainly not a bargain. The food is decent, but nothing special.

A great place to stop and eat breakfast, lunch or dinner; especially when staying in Big Bend National Park. The views are spectacular; you are deep within the Chisos Mountain Range. Well run restaurant with a great salad bar and other great foods.
