La Kiva - Terlingua , Texas

When you leave Marfa and head down to Big Bend National Park, you've got to stop by La Kiva in Terlingua. It is a little "hole in the wall" joint..... or should I say ground? It basically is a bar / restaurant that looks like its in a cave. You descend down the narrow cave opening to enter. Once you are inside you enter a dim lit bar area with some stools and tables. There are some skulls and fossil type images in the walls. The kids will love it! They have great food and cold drinks! You can step out of the cave and enter their patio for outdoor dining and live music. It's a great place to hang out and let the kids run free. One of my favorite aspects of La Kiva besides the great food and drinks was the men's urinal in the restroom. It's basically a large iron bucket hanging on the wall.....reminiscent of a witch's cauldron. My son thought it was the coolest thing. So if you are down there near Terlingua check out La Kiva......one of the coolest bar atmospheres in Texas.


  1. how come everywhere you go and everything you do is cool? don't you go to anything not cool? talk about living in frisco, that is not cool.

  2. Yeah, I can think of cooler places than Frisco to be...but for now it pays the bills to be here.

  3. i want to move into that cave bar in la kiva
    but i'll settle for the landing right now

  4. You got to love La Kiva. Great place to hang out especially when it's 110 degrees in the shade!


I always like to hear what you think.....drop me a note!
