What?!?! I can’t believe it!! I read on John Wells’s blog “The Field Lab”, that a Terlingua landmark, the STARLIGHT THEATRE Restaurant & Bar is closing. Their last night will be this coming Saturday.
I thought that the atmosphere was terrific and the food some of the best I have had. I was there back in late April of this year. Their venison burger with chipotle sauce was fantastic, along with everything else. I was pleasantly thinking of my next return visit, but alas, no more Starlight. I am saddened by its closing. Another icon of the American Southwest - gone.
Terlingua will not be the same.
I took this picture of the front of the Starlight:
And this was taken inside one evening that I was there. It didn’t seem to be lacking in patrons.
