A great place that is unique and full of character A review of Mexican Hat Lodge and Swingin Steak
After watching and photographing a breathtaking sunset in Monument Valley we were headed back to Durango in the pitch dark. Driving out in the middle of nowhere we were shocked to drive by a small festive party with a band playing! We slammed on the brakes, made a U-turn and went back to check it out. This place had a charm all to it's own. A fire was burning with a swinging grate as an old cowboy was cooking steaks on it and stiring a big pot of ranch beans. We sat down and had a couple of beers as our steaks cooked on the swing while we enjoyed a great band playing county, rock and blues. It was a very sereal time that we will never forget. We will be going back at the end of December and this time we plan on spending the night at the lodge. Very nice people, great meal and a very special time.
