The tenderloin tacos are unique and fabulous. Also enjoyed the special rice with corn, also very unique. Creme boule is out of site. Service and atmosphere can not be beat. Best restaurant within 100 miles (maybe 200).

Couldn't get seated in main dining room so requested the bar. Big mistake. Service was well below expectations. Entrees arrived before we finished our salads. Couldn't get anyone's attention to refill drinks.

We were there for lunch...very crowded! Service was slow, and food was mediocre! I had read lots of reviews that were very good and had visited the Ft. Worth location... maybe just an off day!

We were in Alpine for the day when we came across this place. It was a Friday night and the place was packed. We were asked if we had reservations and we hadn't even thought of that so we said "no." They seated us anyway...More

The original Reata Restaurant located in the scenic Davis Mountains of west Texas offers the same fine dining and Legendary Texas Cuisine you can find at the Fort Worth location. Alpine, home to Sul Ross State University is near Texas tourist destination Big Bend National Park and the towns of Marathon, Fort Davis and Lajitas. Alpine is also a short drive from Marfa, Texas renowned both for the mysterious Marfa Lights and Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation.

Reata, named after the legendary ranch in the James Dean classic movie, “Giant”, which was filmed in nearby Marfa, boasts the same high quality Southwestern dining you can find in Fort Worth. This is not food for the faint of heart, from Chicken Fried Steak to Calf Fries or the Pepper Crusted Tenderloin and Cowboy Rib Eye Steak, this is a dining experience not to miss.

Today, Reata Alpine remains a true destination restaurant, attracting loyal diners from miles beyond the charming converted farmhouse where our Legendary Texas Cuisine was born.
