Inside Reata Alpine

Reata Alpine Restaurant


The original Reata Restaurant, nestled in the southern end of the breathtaking Davis Mountains in west Texas, is where our legendary cuisine was born. Reata Alpine has been providing fine dining to residents and visitors of the Big Bend for nearly two decades. Alpine, home to Sul Ross State University, is the gateway to premier Texas tourist destination Big Bend National Park and the towns of Marathon, Fort Davis and Lajitas. Alpine is also a short drive from Marfa, Texas, which is renowned both for the mysterious Marfa Lights and Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation. Reata Alpine offers lunch seven days a week, and dinner every night but Sunday.

More than a traditional steakhouse, Reata takes its name from the legendary ranch in the James Dean classic movie “Giant”, which was filmed in nearby Marfa. The traditional-with-a-twist Southwestern style menu is not food for the faint of heart. From chicken fried steak to calf fries, to the pepper- crusted tenderloin and Cowboy ribeye steak, this is a southern dining experience not to miss.

Today, Reata Alpine remains a true destination restaurant. Loyal diners, guests at the famed Gage hotel and wedding parties from Marathon come from miles beyond the charming converted adobe house to enjoy our sophisticated cowboy cooking cuisine, and the equally sophisticated wine list. With wines from California, Australia, Argentina, Chile, and France, the wine menu offers a perfect accompaniment to the classic southwestern cuisine.

Reata Alpine has taken the legendary menu on the road, and has catered numerous events, including weddings, rehearsal dinners and corporate events. Stay up to date on Reata Alpine news, coming events in the Big Bend, and recipes from our team of chefs! Sign up for our newsletter and Facebook page.
