Stopped by on a Sunday night for some food. Kitchen was closed due to strong winds (!). Offered chilli or hot dog. Chose the chilli. Small portion with cheese and onions. Very average. We left when two patrons lit up a cigarette. Time to go.

We really enjoyed our evening here whilst staying in Beatty. The chilli is unbelievably good and actually the slightly smaller portion size (for 6 dollars) was perfect having over eaten almost everywhere else on our trip. Nice cold beers and a lovely chat with some...More

The beer is colder, and the Chili is better. There is a (fairly) new server/bar lady and she is a "hoot". This place is NOT to be missed.

In a grubby little desert town over-run by wild donkeys, the Happy Burro bar attracts lively locals and lost-looking tourists alike. It's a cheerful place to linger over a beer. Didn't try the food.

Great place to get a beer! I definitely recommend any tourists to go there! For the « manly men » check out the restrooms! ;)

We have been stopping here many times over the years. Always a great bowl of Chili, great hamburger and the coldest beer (except for the Beatty VFW Post). Unique "dining" experience well worth the stop.

Basic menu but great food incredible atmosphere and terrific value. Joey and Mama the chef worked there socks off. We had a real laugh and appreciated the originality of the place. A must to visit!

Curious place, very limited food, no service, all plastic or paper. They could put some effort and improve
