    Ghost Town Cafe: Decent Food in a Ghost Town

    by Basaic Written Mar 8, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the ghost town of Terlingua, there are not a lot of choices for restaurants. I opted for the Ghost Town Cafe. It looked pretty good from the outside and had an interesting small town feel. The food was kinda average as was the service.

    Favorite Dish: The Ham Steak was okay.

    In nearby Marathon, at the Dry Bean Cafe, a husband and wife host guests for a two-to-three hour trail ride cookout, complete with cowboy songs and poetry. It gives a real feel for the area.
    Singing 'home, home on the range' with four guys from the Netherlands and a couple from Canada. Great stories from the host. Gives historical data about the area you won't read anywhere.

    Favorite Dish: Don't remember the food. Believe I just had a sandwich.

    Starlight Theater: Dining in the desert

    Monday night is two-for-one burgers at the Starlight. It is the place in this authentic ghosttown. Other nights are fine as well. Meet the locals.

    Favorite Dish: Enchiladas are really good. Blackened salmon and the filet mignon are excellent. Don't hesitate to order a margarita.

    Chili Pepper Cafe: Family run local eats

    by DSwede Updated Sep 26, 2015

    Most structures in Terlingua are fairly utilitarian and blockish from the outside. That could be true too of Chili Pepper Cafe, seems rather spartan and drab from the outside. The inside shows again a lot of the local culture of being economic and resourceful. But thankfully they put their efforts into the food.

    Favorite Dish: Small menu, but concentrated on Mexican, TexMex and basic classics like burgers. The prices are low, service fast and food is good. For less than $10, its hard to beat the meal you'd get here. With a polite please, you'll even get your drink topped off to take on the road. Open 8am ~ 9pm
