Stopped in for chili and beers. Chili was too spicy for my friend, but I ate it with the help of alcohol. Old place, and a lot of locals who seem to be regulars. Must be the Cheers bar of Beatty! Worth a stop.

did quite a bit of driving for vacation and well, sometimes, you like enjoying a fair bit of a break. Happy Burro is such place. Local, like you find with difficulties in CA. Yeah, well, they were out of chili at 2pm for lunch. menu...More

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.

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.
