After departing Los Angeles late, our AC blew out in the middle of nowhere, CA. We spent the next two hours feeding the dog ice chips, letting her sleep on a cool pillow of ice, and sweating. Find her on Instagram @julestravels if you think she’s adorable.
So, our road trip didn’t go quite as planned. However, thanks to the wonderful service at Tempe Honda, we were able to hit the road and get to Marfa, TX- just not in time for dinner.
Upon our arrival at dog-friendly Thunderbird Hotel, there was a kind note waiting for us and keys ready for our use.
Our hotel room was clean, spacious, and nice and cool for our arrival!
Jules approved of the hotel too.
The rooms are slightly Western and open. I wanted to jump into the inviting pool, but I resisted at the promise of a local beer at Padre’s.
The bar frequently hosts live music, has big open tables under the night sky, TVs to catch any sports games, and games like shuffleboard, air hockey, and more.
In the morning, it’s best to pay a visit to Marfa Burrito. Essentially, you are dining in someone’s former house.
The breakfast burritos are phenomenal and CHEAP. Make sure you get the salsa, as it makes the burrito pretty incredible.
These were my favorite breakfast burritos along our journey because of the perfect tortillas, spicy and tasty hot sauce, crispy potatoes, and well-cooked eggs.
We liked it so much we brought some beans home!
It is worth noting that several to-do items were closed during the week, so try to plan your trip for a weekend getaway!
