A Word From The Owners:

“Looking for the best food in town? Or maybe you’re looking for the best bar in town? Either way, you’re looking at the right menu! Take the last exit on the 260 South, Ralls Dr, for a great experience at The Weekender Bar & Grill.

This cozy cabin-turned-bar and grill is tucked away in the tall ponderosa pines and thick manzanita bushes, close enough to the highway for easy access, but far enough that deer, javelina, elk, and many kinds of birds will mosey right on up to our backyard water troughs.

Come taste our delicious dining in a classic mountain house pool room, or knock back a drink (or two) in our second storey bar. We’d love the opportunity to serve you great food and drinks and get to know you, too. Stop by any weekend!”

Owners, Josh & Katie Smith
