This place definitely has the most choices for food in all the area. I always got something new on the menu every time I visited and it was always delicious. The service is always top notch, even while being understaffed, they're always calm under pressure...More

i went into the High Sierra in the evening after hiking all day. I believe her name is Heather and she is a fun person to talk with. The coffee is good. The grilled cheese was great and the people are fun.

We had a great meal at the High Sierra Bar and Grill, but the best part of the meal was hearing the fantastic performer, Dr. Fun (aka Mike Casper). The staff was helpful and nice, and the salsa was some of the best I've ever...More

The High Sierra is an outpost. It is one of those places that seem to be at the end of the road in a forgotten corner of the world. But what a corner! Located in Terlingua, Texas at the western edge of Big Bend National...More
