“Just So-So”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

This restaurant is in an interesting area of Terlingua,TX.
That is about all I can say about this spot that got such rave reviews on Trip Advisor as being the #1 place to eat in Terlingua.

“Great Food, Better People Watching”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

The food here was really good. Had a great wild boar burger, tried the chili and it was superb. There was live music which was fun and good. Hands down though, the absolute best part is the people watching. Do yourself a favor and if you're ever in the area you have to stop here.

“Quite a good restaurant, especially considering its remoteness”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Ignore what it looks like, settle down and enjoy the food and people watching. There are many good things to eat, including their chili, wild boar sausage and chicken-fried antelope strips. Their house salad is quite good. If you are in the area, this is definitely a place to go to, as well as the Ghost Town in Terlingua and the store next to the restaurant.

“lots of fun”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great chic/hole in the wall atmosphere with nice staff and good food. Cool decorations. Find this place, you'll like it. Its in the old town up off the road to the right when going south, at the end of a long rustic strip center.

“If you find your way to Terlingua you must stop in.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you havnt been to Terlingua or the Starlight I will warn you in advance. This place is like no other. The Porch and the Starlight are synonymous with good food and great times. There is usually a wait to get in but you can hang out on the porch and listen to the informal gathering of the excellent local music. Be warned once you go you may not want to leave....
