We were two couples and decided on hamburgers for dinner. We had potato skins, traditional 'Wedge Salad,' 'Kobe' Style hamburgers, chicken fingers and onion rings. The Tack Room Tavern's food was great! The service was also good, our waiter was very professional. There was a bar and a few TVs with all the football games on. Good times for all.

We were in town for a sports tournament at the Polo Grounds with a team of twenty 16 year-old girls (and parents / coaches) and looking for an alternative to fast-food without breaking the bank. The Tack Room delivered. It is super-convenient to the Polo Club, right on the same grounds; and the Tack Room team could not have been... More

The roll was nicely toasted, not burned. The burger was very tasty and the fries were obviously cooked to order. The menu isn't huge, but that just means everything tastes yummy. There was a band playing outside, so after dinner we went outside to listen to some covers. There were heaters all over the place so no one was standing... More

My wife and I moved to the desert in July 2015 and this is on of our finds. The entrance is located on Monroe near 50th, follow the signs.You can eat here for breakfast, lunch and dinner but the real deal is during happy hour. From 4-6 the food is near half price and the drinks much less. This is... More

Here for a tournament and chose to stop here on our last day. Wish we had done that sooner instead of driving 20 minutes to the next closest food spot. Its not much to look at from outside but inside it has a great patio and good menu with reasonable pricing. The service was quick and very friendly. Very enjoyable... More

Lively place to watch the game. Plenty of good tvs. Mostly a local crowd. Small, intimate, space. Plenty of parking. Good drinks.

This restaurant is a bit out of town, but we didn't have any trouble finding it which our nav. system. We ordered a wedge salad and it was HUGE and big enough to share, plus it was one of the best we've ever had. I ordered sliders, very tasty and my husband had a burger. Great, casual atmosphere with wonderful... More

If you love hole in the wall, neighborhood style eateries, you'll fall in love the minute you walk into the Tack Room Tavern. Located next to the Polo Fields in Indio, we ate here for lunch and then came back again with some friends another time for their Happy Hour which was really fun and a great deal for cocktails...
