Came for breakfast. A throwback to earlier times, but appears this is the place to be for breakfast. Nothing fancy, but the menu is varied and palatible. Service was quite good. Portion size for the corned beef with eggs was small for the price. C'mon for $8.95 throw a dollop more on. Overall I would return to the Sidewinder when... More

There are 2 breakfast joints in Desert Hot Springs conveniently located across the street from each other. We chose this one because it looked more open (the other one had barred windows) and no outdoor space. We ordered the usual breakfast favorites and had a nice experience with this local "dive". The waitress served us a fresh brewed cuppa coffee... More

We visited on a Saturday lunchtime and entered just as a large party of children left, and the servers looked as if they were winding down. The TV was on with a few staff members sat watching at the 'bar', and the others putting stuff away and tidying up. In the daylight it is an untidy, scruffy place with torn... More

the breakfast was ok--not exceptional and when you eat there it takes a while to place an order and receive your food even when it's not real busy--I think it's more of a nighttime place as it was sort of faded looking but under soft lights it might be better

I stayed in Desert Hot Springs and had a night to myself before my boyfriend arrived in town. We had planned to go to Sidewinder for breakfast the next morning when he made it into town but I decided to check it out for dinner because there was not a whole lot to chose from in town. Let me say... More

The food was great and the staff wonderful. After a day in the hot sun, their food and drinks hit the spot.

Passing through Desert Hot Springs, wearing my 'Snake' shirt, saw this place. Serendipitous! Went in, menu did not really look 'Southwestern', but appearances are deceiving, it is the flair with how the food is prepared. I had a Taco Salad for lunch and was prepared for the usual generic offering. Boy, was I surprised! Meat (lots) was not greasy, lightly... More

This is a long established restaurant in Desert Hot Springs. Having said that, it is an old looking building. The food, especially breakfast, is very good. It is home cooking, nothing fancy. It is very reasonably priced.
