The White Horse Saloon was thought to first open as Whitehouse in the late 1800's under the management of H.B. Moses Elder and his brother Emmett Elder. Samuel K. Dickerson bought it in 1906 and operated as a saloon until 1915. It was known as a lively places where prize fighters came. Dickerson ran his saloon from the basement and leased the upstairs. For a time the Faternal Order of Eagles held their meetings here and Dickerson had a drink called the Eagle Fiss. In 1908 he had taken to Marguerite Roberts, but someone didn't take to this too kindley and tried to have him run out of town. It was Louie's Place, but that part of the plaque has faded or water damage. The first part of the plaque says, it was closed down during prohibition in 1920's and operated as a restaurant after that.
We didn’t go into this establishment, but I have been told by my best friend they have awesome food and service. She likes to bring her kids here to just get away for the day. Then they head over to get some ice cream at the General Store after they have lunch in here. This establishment seems to be popular by the OHV operators. Many of them head to here on their ATV's to get a bit to eat and jump back on their iron horses and head out! So keep that in mind when wondering around the streets-Yehaw!
Not open for business my second visit.

Henry ran the Steam Baery until 1904 until Mrs. W.O. Martha Lidy of Johannesburg bought half interest. In 1905 they purchased an Edison Heating and Lighting Plant for the bakery. In Oct of 1907 Mr. Rott was severly burned in a fire at the bakery, but recovered. He continued in business throught 1914. It was thought the Steam Bakery was located in what is now known as The Joint.

Wild West of the 80's at The Joint An interesting tale for sure!
We visited on President's Day Holiday, and so most businesses were closed in town. But, not the Randsburg Grocery and Soda Fountain. This place was packed with off-road vehicle enthusiasts who come for adventure in the high desert off highway 395. The building itself is a real treasure with oramented tin facade and ornate tin ceiling inside, this place, like many other in Randsburg is right out of the old wild west. The soda fountain bar is surfaced in the original granite, and the rest is the same varnished wood from the heyday of this gold mining town. Patrons order their food at the cash register, and then wait for the grub to come. Typical is the Randsburg Hamburger and Blueberry Milk shake, which is what I ordered for lunch. But, there are plenty of beers and sodas in the refrigerator, and the menu includes a number of other sandwiches, chili, and salads. Prices are reasonable and oriented to families. Breakfast and Dinner are also served. Of course, groceries are also sold here though in small variety. This is certainly one of few places to eat in town, and certainly the most reliable in terms of operating hours. Credit Cards accepted.
Favorite Dish: I was too entertained by ambience of the place to pay much attention to the food, quite honestly, but the burger and milkshake filled me up and tasted great.
