Nice folks running a dive with good burgers and really good chilly. The men's room is worth a visit. I don't want to give away the coolness of it, but bring you phone to snap a pic or two...also they have a nice little outdoor section.

Visited on 09/06/16 - Happy Burro Chili & Beer, 100 W Main St, Beatty, NV 89003 We looked into most of the places where food was on offer this evening except Denny’s which we avoid at all costs! None looked very inviting if I am honest to say but we did stumble across the Happy Burro Chili & Beer eatery.... More

We were traveling through Beatty and stayed at the motel across the street. We wandered in the front area (a small crowded bar) and felt awkward as though we had stepped into someone's personal party. We waited a while until someone (an employee?) reluctantly stumbled up to give us menus. We aren't picky eaters, however we are vegetarian, and there... More

This is the 3rd time we have stopped at the Happy Burro Chili and Beer place. It is really, really cute, small inside, but you can eat outside on the FUN patio. Lots to look at outside, restrooms that are fun. Good chili, nice people.

Following a morning of hiking in Death Valley, my wife and I made our way to Beatty to look around the area and grab some lunch. Based on the recommendation of a friend we opted to try the Happy Burro. Hard to go wrong with a name like that! This is a bit of an eclectic looking place, with sort... More

We were here for a Saturday night. And of course had to eat the Chilli and drink beer. Otherwise the menu is Limited. But both beer and chilli were great. And we loved the decor and local atmosphere. Very quirky collectibles and characters. If you don't like dogs this might not be a good place for you as it is... More

We read reviews the chili & thought it would be a good place to grab something quick. Not sure how this is ranked #2 of 14 Beatty restaurants. Sorry, but our experience was disappointing to say the least. We got 2 containers for take out & it was around $11. We wouldn't mind if it was good, but we had... More

Good place for chili and beer. They have a decent beer selection considering their location. You can have a bowl of chili, chili dog or chili hamburger, and all were good. The chili is not very spicy but has a good flavor. And yes, it has beans, so for all meat chili purists, be ready. My wife is one of... More

We had a burger and a bowl of chili. The burger was great and all the condiments were at the table. The chili was piping hot and (once cooled down) really good. The only downside is that you enter into a bar, where there's lots of cigarette smoking
