This business does have a nice outdoor patio. Once seated, we ordered a couple of different beers, but they were out of our choices. The food menu is very limited. The photo on Trip Advisor looks good, but the reality is a small styrofoam bowl with plastic ware, paper napkins and no tortillas on the side. The chili was fairly... More

The place itself has a great decoration. The men's bathroom alone is worth the detour... the menu is not complicated but this is simple and good food. The chili is really good, even for people that don't like spicy, it's ok. Waitress was really nice. Loved the atmosphere, you see a good part of clients there are not tourists, and... More

I am looking for a good hamburger and a beer. Let's start with service. Spotty and choppy. While they were nice they were distracted by friends or counting tips. Ate outside as smoking is allowed and it's stifling inside. Hate to be here when it's coy. Regular beers. No IPA's. In this day and age that's odd. Ordered chili burger.... More

Welcoming staff and locals, great beer and food. We didn't expect much but this place massively over-delivered on our expectations. Best night of our holiday in Los Angeles, Washington DC, New York.....and Death Valley.

Our guide book said the chile was made with chunks of steak and served with a variety of sauces. When my order arrived it was basic hamburger chile and no sauces were served. There was only room for a few people inside so we had to sit outside where it was rather cold. You may have better luck but that... More

Initially we wanted to eat at KCs outpost but when we came through their doors at 8pm and after waiting in a line full of people for 10 minutes, we were told the kitchens were closed for the night. They referred us to Denny's but there was no way we were going there, we wanted an authentic dinner in Beatty.... More

Smoking indoors is not our favorite. This is a small place and probably a local hangout. We thought we could get some dinner, but couldn't take the smoky atmosphere.

We sat next to drunk men who swore badly every other sentence. Not too great when you have children - my daughter wants to move but the men were so loud, nowhere to move to. Sort of out a damper on dinner and I couldn't wait to get the check so we could leave.

This place has lots of great reviews for a reason. it's great! I saw the name and had no choice but to stop in. To have missed the burro, would have been a major disappointment.

We were staying in Beatty as a base for exploring Death Valley. This is a delightful hole-in-the-wall bar/cafe, real rustic, tons of charm and local salt-of-the-earth customers and bikers. Their chili is the best, home made, spicy and delicious, lots of toppings. Easily the best thing on the menu. Good draft and bottled beer selections. Pleasant waitresses. Memorable and Highly...
