Stopped in for lunch on our way from Vegas to Reno. Small, casual place with pleasant outdoor seating. Tried the Fritos bowl of chili and the chili burger. Both items good. Service terrific and friendly. Important to note - menu is very limited, but what they served was good!

The Chili, along with the hamburgers are really, really great! The Chili being homemade, was won (several?) awards and it shows. The burgers come loaded and sloppy. Beer? Well, very cold and goes down very smooth on a hot evening. This place is sort of a cult classic.

Went here while visiting beatty. Awesome burgers and nicest chilli I have tasted. Very friendly bar, suzi (sorry if I got your name wrong) told me where I could get some carolans as there is no liquor store (I can't even get this in England now, they told me they didn't make it anymore). Would definitely visit here if I... More

It was nice weather. We sat outside. The beer was great. The chili was fabulous. Just the right spice. I would suggest everybody staying TTY he night before going to Death Valley to try this and taste the excellent food and old fashioned atmosphere.

There's not much to do and see in Beatty. We drove through this area and stopped for a night. After we almost hit a burro crossing the street (no joke), we had dinner in 'Happy Burro' - they had a special Chili on offer which came in a bowl or as 2 burritos. We tried both - they were good....

We were on a road trip to visit our children in NV and stopped in Beatty, NV for the night. We had our little dog with us, and I saw that this place had outdoor seating. I called to ask if we could bring our dog, and was told YES! We had the chili, which was delicious! Atmosphere was friendly... More

Stopped in here for dinner and I was the only person in the place. I had the chili, which was OK, but not the best I've ever had. When you advertise as a place with "chili and beer" it might be a good idea to have a decent beer list. Not much choice. The best they had was Sierra Nevada... More

Don't usually like to write 'bad' reviews but this place is not as good as the reviews say. Stop if you are looking to grab a drink and check out the atmosphere, and the nice people. But if you are looking for some good food keep driving. The chili tasted a few day old, the burger was easily day or... More

What a great place to hang out with friends after dinner! A great selection of craft beers, video games and a jukebox machine!
