Feel free to give us a call to check inventory and product selection.Everything you need to prepare your favorite entrees is available. We like enchiladas, burgers, lasagna, pilaf, curry, sandwiches, spaghetti, stir-fry, garden salads, charcuterie, brats, and way more, with a huge selection of beer and wine to match any occasion.We also offer bulk pre-orders on grocery at a 20% case discount.

general merchandise

For a town of less than 400, we have a pretty Brobdingnagian selection of goods. From tofu to nalgene bottles, espresso, ice chests, ginger juice, citrus, deli goods, homemade hummus and cookies, NRS straps, dry bags, blankets, and much more. When it comes to outdoor/rec gear, we refuse to sell junk. If you buy from us, it will almost always be a best-in-class product. Come see for yourself. We do our best.

events and catering

We love hosting events, and, upon request, we can bring the party to you. Not only do we love it, but we think we're pretty good at it too. Want us to setup an espresso bar 20 miles from the nearest paved road? Cordon Bleu for 40 people on the banks of the Rio Grande? We can figure it out. (But we'll need some heads up.) Contact us!

catering on-site at the store

We also book live music shows in our backyard venue. Please hit us up if you are musical artist (or any kind of artist) who would like to book a show with us!

glassy coffee


Discover our full espresso and coffee bar inside the store, just to the left of checkout. Are you surprised that we have the best selection of milks? And for those that like it straight, we work only with the best coffee roasters in the state.




We are real humans and we love talking to other real humans.
If you're coming way out here, you might as well get what you need.
Can't hurt to ask, right?
