We had lunch here outside. Great weather and ambiance. They serve Arnold Palmers in carafes with lemon and mint. Refreshing! We had half a sandwich with soup. The soup was FIVE spoons,,,, Hungarian Mushroom. ....to die for! Wee like this place and will be back.

We have eaten here at all of the various locations they have occupied. They have moved a few times over the last several years, but the food has stayed consistent, GOOD. They cook all food to exactly your order, and it is really tasty. They have these rosemary potatoes that they serve with breakfast that I can't get enough of.... More

We called ahead for a party of 15 and were easily accomodated. Food was great and they brought carafes of drinks for refills. I was impressed by their concern and service.

We sat,and sat, no one came to ask us if we wanted a drink.....We sat further more....No one came ! So after 20 minutes of that We got up and went to Kendalls, where we were served immediately by the lovely professionals waitresses there. The food at Red Ocotillo is not that great that I want to wait 20 minutes... More

Great food & Location but food is pricey. Had Sunday breakfast, food & service is really good but it's a little on the pricey side but hey that's Borrego.

Red Ocotillo has moved to a new spot, just off Christmas Circle - seek it out, it is a great find. Food is well prepared and fresh. Excellent Patty Melt and Veggie Sandwich on a recent Saturday.

First time I've been to their new location, closer to town. Service was good, but it did take a long time to get our order once it was placed. The food was very good. Not great, but good enough to enjoy and would go back. Love Borrego Springs, and I believe this is one of the better places to eat.... More

When staying in Anza Borrego during it's hot off season, you are limited on your dining options. After trying a couple of other places, we decided to try Red Ocotillo. This is their second location, where the French restaurant use to be. When we first entered we were welcomed nicely and sat promptly. When asked if we wanted something to... More
