Chata Ortega's Bar & Grill

View Large On Black


Chata Ortega's Bar & Grill, in the middle of nowhere along I-20, West Texas. See the Chata Ortega's Set Page for more pictures of this place.



In 1985, this building was used as a set in the Kevin Costner movie 'Fandango'. For more information about this movie and the west Texas locations used in it's filming, visit this Fandango Fan Page. I actually wound up shooting three of the locations used for the movie during this road trip. I was amazed in how good a condition this place was compared to the way it looked in '85 for the movie.


Night, 3/4 moon, several red-gelled strobe pops. 3 1/2 minute exposure.
