An odd oasis in a town with 31 residents. Old cars, old mining equipment and cold beer. Do go into the museum and the general store across the street. If you like the unusual, with a real history- you'll enjoy an hour or so in Shoshone and the Crow Bar

Stopped for breakfast on our way out of Tecopa. Great service. Winderful chili cheese and california omelets. Daughter had a serving of french toast that was 3 full pieces of bread. Definitely would recommend.

Met friends on our way to Death Valley and stopped for early dinner. We ordered grilled cheese sandwich and a hamburger that came with french fries, rattlesnake chili with a bite and taco salad. All 4 meals were adequate, nothing to write home about...

Shoshone is a very small town near the entrance of Death Valley National Park. It's not close to anything so we were glad to find a decent place for lunch before heading into the park. The waitress is friendly but by herself so she was busy with the take outs and the eat ins. The food is OK.

Read reviews here and was a little hesitant. Not disappointed! Atmosphere of the place quite pleasant. Waitress was very cheery and polite & on the ball. The burger was excellent & the hand cut fries great. Iced tea served in Mason jar was tasty. Oh, if you wanted a beer with lunch, go after noon - cafe policy is they... More

A fun historic restaurant in the small town of Shoshone at the south end of DVNP. Good burgers, a decent selection of beer (mostly in bottles). Fast service, good prices. Food hit the spot and was good quality. We both had hamburgers and fries.

We had been visiting Death Valley and ended up in Shoshone in need of food and lodging. For such a small town with so few options, we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of both. The food was well prepared and very good with reasonable prices. The server was pleasant and efficient. As stated, a pleasant surprise when we... More

The fries are great! Everything else was pretty bad. Chicken sandwich was super dry, BLT had a lot of L, a hard T, and barely any B. The service here is the worst I have experienced in a long time. We just left there and I couldn't wait to have cell service so I could leave a review. The waitress... More
