    Riverside Cafe: Bring your Own

    by mtncorg Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Adult beverages?  Yeah, I think we can manage.

    Just because you are out in the wild, does not mean you have to be uncivilized. One problem with rafting is sometime you can bring too much lunch!!

    Favorite Dish: I like the torillas with fresh homemade salami, pear and cheese. It is as good as yoru ingredients.

    Chisos Mountain Lodge Restaurant: The Only Restaurant Within the Park

    Chisos Mountain Lodge Restaurant  by Gary

    The Chisos Mountain Lodge Restaurant opens at 7:00 A.M. and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you are in a hurry to head out in the morning ask about their breakfast in a box that you can take with you. We ate lunch there twice, when we drove up to Chisos Basin for hiking. We were surprised to find that the food was quite good. My husband described his lunches as a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. I had a tuna fish salad sandwich on a croissant with potato chips on the side both times. My husband had a burrito with refried beans, salsa, and guacamole the fist time. The second time he had a chicken fried steak. He thought both lunches were quite good.

    Gage Hotel Restaurant: Nice Western Restaurant in Marathon

    by XenoHumph Updated Oct 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gage Hotel (middle left), Marathon, Texas

    This restaurant serves very nice steaks and game dishes. I wish they would serve something else than water boiled broccoli for green vegetables. Their mashed potatoes are great.
    The decor inside is great (cowboy/mexican) and the patio with the fountain adorable.
    Once (June 2002) we had a rude waiter who was never available when needed, the other time (September 2003) the waitress was very nice and efficient.

    Favorite Dish: Steak. Quail (an american wild bird).

    Chisos Basin Mountain Lodge: If you like microwaved food...

    Chisos Basin Mountain Lodge, Big Bend NP

    There is actually one restaurant within Big Bend National Park. The Mountain lodge serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. I went once for dinner, and the food (mexican enchiladas) had obviously been heated by microwave, it was still cold in the middle. They also serve beer and wine (the Texas wine St Genevieve Merlot is pretty good and cheap). The view on the Chisos Basin from the lodge is great.

    Huuummmmm!

    Bring your own food! The closest town with a decent restaurant is more than 50 miles away...
    Dry goods are best if you do not want to drive for hundreds of miles to get ice for your cooler.
