Never boring, this place always has something new to notice. The mine-like entrance and ore buckets reference Terlingua’s past as a mercury-producing area; huge Mexican clay jars hang from massive beams, and bones and skulls abound. And then there is the calm, uncluttered waiting area with comfy seating and a cool gray wall hung with beautiful photos. Variety doesn’t stop with the decor, either, from calamari and crab-stuffed mushrooms to fried okra (sometimes), burgers, and steaks (the latter are New York strips with various sauces, and one comes with a giant and powerful roasted jalapeño on top). Finally, there are the characters—and we do mean characters—both those serving and being served.
