Marathon’s Local Restaurant & Gateway to the Big Bend

The Famous Burro

Welcome to the Famous Burro!  We're proud to offer the best of local West Texas home cooking, live entertainment, shuffleboard, and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.   From our fresh, homemade menu to our stellar staff, our fully-stocked bar to our game room, we think you'll agree that the Famous Burro offers a perfect blend of affordable, casual dining and high-quality service.  The Burro is Marathon's local bar and restaurant, offering the perfect forum for visitors to the Big Bend to meet the real West Texas face-to-face.


The Famous Burro is best known for our burgers but we offer a variety of bar snacks such as fried pickles, chicken wings and veggie trays. Come try a Blue Burro burger, a West Texas burger, or the Mushroom Swiss to curb your hunger. 


The Famous Burro is open Thursday through Sunday. Bar snacks and dinner are served Thursday through Saturday 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m and our bar stays open until 11:00 p.m.  On Sunday we are open for food and drinks from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. During the slower months, we will occasionally close early due to light volume.  

We are open for our regular hours on Saturday, July 5. Stop on in!

Please check our Facebook page (coming soon!) for specials and current info.
