It might sound silly, but you can feel James Dean’s star power permeate this landmark fifty years after the fact. There is an ineffable glamor here that my video may not be able to capture. The only way to experience it is to visit yourself; stop by their website and make reservations so you can see what I’m talking about.
I want to give a big thank you to Vicki, Carlos Lujan and the rest of the staff at the Paisano Hotel and Jett’s Grill. This isn’t just a great place to stop by if you’re from out of town… they go out of their way to make a wonderful experience for the whole community. A perfect day in Marfa always ends with one of Jett’s excellent Margaritas while observing the sunset to the sound of the fountain in the courtyard.
They get my kudos because they are professional about providing excellent service. Even when every other restaurant in town in closed, you can get something to eat here. That is a community service, people!
