La Cueva de Oso

It’s time to revisit the amazing spring-fed pool at Balmorhea State Park, now that it’s open again after major maintenance. You’ll be hungry afterward, so head up the highway to the self-proclaimed “Cutest Restaurant in Balmorhea” (not much competition), which is several small arch-connected rooms plus a patio. What we found really cute was the taco salad heaped into a small hand-formed tortilla bowl topped with broiler-melted cheese; although dressed with the obligatory sour cream and guac, the real treat was at the bottom of the bowl: finely ground beef and wonderfully seasoned frijoles. Add the roasted chile table salsa to achieve cute perfection.
