Good Burger Place, but the Best is the live entertainment by Willy B!

Went in for a burger as they say they are the BEST on the hill. So I ordered a burger and wouldn't go as far to say they are the BEST, they are good and I've had better in Idyllwild. The saving grace was the entertainment brought on by Willy B and friends! So, if your looking for cheap eats... read more

We show up Sunday at ~ 3:00, walk up to the front door, a women walks out and says "we're closed see the sign is down". She was obviously tired and even said look at me, I'm done. Got it mountain community but that's it for us😒

Our car club was in the Idyllwild 4th of July parade & wanted to eat lunch afterwards. This was the perfect place. It was away from the crowded village & had a great menu. The food was good, service friendly & awesome homemade desserts. I would definitely go there again.

This Pub/Diner is on the way into Idylwild and serves up some of the meanest burgers. Its standard 8 ounce is a lot of meat but tasty. If you want the smaller size. get the 5 ounce and they have a Seniors menu listing that is smaller and less expensive.. Good food with friendly service. we always stop there when... More

I have been to a lot of restaurants in idyllwild and they don't know how to cook. I'm a chef so yes I'm a strong critic but seriously how do you mess up wings and have a dirty restaurant. The owner is sweet and very friendly. The burgers are to die for and the desserts oh my!! Very clean environment... More

My husband and I are by no means picky eaters. We stopped in for a bite while in the area for the weekend and were horribly disappointed. The service was ridiculously slow and the food was horrible in addition to being overpriced. The chili was more like soup and rather tasteless. The pastrami was greasy and tough. Definitely not worth... More

If you want to venture a few blocks away from the tourist eateries, go here. They have the best hand made onion rings. Everything including the dressings and dips are made fresh. A notty pine funky bar, a blast from the past decor with really good food that will leave you saying. Wow, that was great. The owner is wonderful... More
