We had dinner. Showed up at 5pm when they opened so no wait. This was good because the food wouldn't have been worth the wait. We didn't stay for any entertainment but I can say that for someone just looking for good food, this place is overrated and overpriced. Service was fine and the place has charm. The quail was good but the salmon was terrible...overcooked and dry. The burgers were just ok and all the sides seemed bland and out of a can or previously frozen. Because dining choices are so limited in the Big Bend area, I can see how this "Applebee's" quality food may seem like a real treat.

We visited a couple of times whilst in Terlingua. Food highlights included Chili, Guacamole, House Salads, Chili Burger and Street Tacos.

Live music was of a good quality and try and sit up at the bar if you want to meet some of the locals.

It will be an hour means in an hour, we'll tell you another hour. Repeat as necessary. They have been around enough to know when the wait will be three hours, why not tell people? It isn't like there are a lot of other choices.

I'm good for ninety minutes of drinking in a hot dusty parking lot and waiting in long lines for the bathroom. Three hours is a bit much. But we gladly would have left and come back. Instead we waited, and waited, and waited, and waited, and waited, for that one hour.

Excellent food. Monday night is two for one hamburgers, so that's a popular night. We went on a Thursday and there was live music. All four of us had very good meals
