Ate at the Thirsty Goat Saloon, across from Candelilla Cafe. Food came from Candelilla. When food was delivered it was very warm and delicious. Atmosphere was very pleasing. As Lajitas is off the beaten path, things are a little pricey, but that should be expected, and the bartender was very courteous.

The food is okay - but it's really way more expensive than you might expect. An omelette is $13! And it's just average. Nothing special. But - it's the only place to eat for 12 miles. So - pack a lunch.

Filet was spectacular, perfectly cooked. The staff is some interns from abroad and so so nice and quick! Very accommodating. We really enjoyed our 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts there!w

Can't recommend the tortilla soup. Pricey. Very nice atmosphere, friendly and efficient wait staff. Beautiful mountain views from every table.

I could not stop looking outside as the sun was setting. Everyone was so relaxed, it was wonderful.
The area is so dark at night, it's the darkest place and very romantic. The Texas stars are huge!
