We were traveling from Death Valley en route to Oregon, and we happend to be passing through Austin NV. We decided to stop there and get a drink, and to look at the historic buildings along main street. Austin makes much of its Pony Express days past. There are a few old gift shopsin the old center, a few old-time motels and an old saloon and restaurant in a historic building on the main street. The moment we walked in there we both had this feeling of 'this is nice - neat and cosy and comfy - a very welcoming place. We sat down at the bar for a drinkl, and the adorably friendly and charming mom-type waitress couldn't have been any more genuinely welcoming and pleseant as well as attentive. On the spot my husband decided we might as well have dinner here, since then we wouldn't have to worry about getting food later, not knowing where we'd stay the night. Walt had a burger with fries, but both the fries and the juicy burger were homemade and fresh and were absolutely delicious, with ample portions. I had a pizza, choosing the small variety, but it was more than enough for one person and well loaded - and also delicious.
It's the kind iof place where you feel at home immediately. In the end the lady even gave me a road map of Nevada when I looked at her sample and asked if she had any for sale ... 'oh, you can have that', was her comment ... I can recommend this place most highly.
We didn't go into the bar next door, but saw it through the open dividing door - it looked appealing as well.
