The original Reata Restaurant located in the scenic Davis Mountains of west Texas offers the same fine dining and Legendary Texas Cuisine you can find at the Fort Worth location. Alpine, home to Sul Ross State University is near 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 renowned both for the mysterious Marfa Lights and Donald Judd's Chinati Foundation. Reata, named after the legendary ranch in the James Dean classic movie, "Giant", which was filmed in nearby Marfa, boasts the same high quality Southwestern dining you can find in Fort Worth. This is not food for the faint of heart, from Chicken Fried Steak to Calf Fries or the Pepper Crusted Tenderloin and Cowboy Rib Eye Steak, this is a dining experience not to miss.

Reata is one of our favorite all-time restaurants. We travel through Alpine once or twice a year and always eat at least once at the Reata. The food, service, and atmosphere never fail to be top notch in all respects. We were traveling this year with friends and took them to the Reata. The husband of our friends said that his Ribeye was the best steak he had ever had. My wife and his wife both had the Carne Asada and declared their dinners great. My biggest disappointment was that they no longer have draft beer. If you visit Alpine, TX., do not miss the Reata you will not be disappointed.

Texas comfort food in an old house in Alpine. It fits the area nicely, and the staff was super friendly. We started with a bowl of the shrimp and corn chowder, which was excellent and full of shrimp. None of the mains we selected were particularly noteworthy, but all were eaten. We had the chicken fried chicken, grilled chicken with blue cheese and tomatoes (best dish, chicken was cooked perfectly), penne Alfredo chicken and the burger. Wine list was very thin by the glass, although there were a few nice bottles available, up to a Silver Oak Cab, to give some perspective. My teenagers had the dessert, apple crisp with the ice cream as the highlight, and my wife had the creme brulee which was a solid preparation.

A great restaurant in the middle of nowhere. I had the best Chicken Fried Steak I’ve had in years.

Drove down to Alpine for a weekend getaway / mini-Honeymoon. Reatta was wonderful. The food was great, the service was fabulous, and the experience was well worth the price tag. I definatley recommend Reatta for a special occasion or that really significant person in your life.

The Reata is a true gem of a restaurant tucked away in the center of downtown Alpine. When you enter, the cozy ambiance hits you immediately and it is much larger than it looks from the outside. You can always count on unique specials of the day and the amazing steaks, chicken fried chicken, fresh scrumptious salads, chicken tortilla soup, deserts and bar drinks.

Beef tenderloin tacos were great. So was the tortilla soup, though very spicy. Friendly service.

Service and food were good, as a vegetarian, the options are slim...I know we are in a cattle producing area, and most residents are not vegetarians, but it still would be nice to have, maybe a pasta entree or something besides a vege plate...otherwise, for all my guests, it was great.

Loved the service, appetizers, bar drinks and the chicken fried steak....however, the carne asada was a surprise, no where in the description did it mention barbeque sauce, that was quite a surprise! It was not my cup of tea, but for others I guess it is what it is! Thanks for having us!

We visited Riata on Dec 2 our 39th anniversary. We were greeted with Happy Anniversary when we arrived and seated in the back room in an intimate corner. Our waitress was very pleasant and after a short time brought my wife and me two glasses of complimentary champagne with a cherry in the bottom. We received first class treatment throughout the whole meal. At the end of our main course a dessert tray was brought to us complimentary. We received our dessert and a card congratulating us for 39 tears by our waitress Mel and what appeared to be signed by everyone in the restaurant. The evening was wonderful because of the efforts of the Riata restaurant and staff. Thank you.

Food was good, but not great. Service was very good. The place is a bit loud so it is hard to carry on a conversation. Overall, I would eat there again.

Classic Texan ambiance. Good Tex-Mex menu. Beer selection very limited. Didn't need reservation. Almost empty on a Monday night.

Frequently dine at Reata in FW but it is always fun to go to the "original" (my second visit). Excellent range of prices - however the beef was fantastic and worth the cost. Wine by the glass is somewhat limited but well priced. Will go anytime that I'm in west Texas.

Would like see a larger selection of meat cuts. T-bone for sure.
