Funky BBQ

Authentic wood BBQ. Saturday there is a lunch rib eye special. Get there by 2pm or all are likely to be sold. A "real" wood BBQ steak. Good ranch beans and Texas toast if you want it. It is difficult to find "real" BBQ nowadays and this is it. I hear burgers are great too but never tried... read more

My mister and I stopped in for a drink after grabbing some pizza down the street at pie for the people. Great atmosphere, cool bartenders and good music...what more can you ask for? We shot some pool, had a smoke on the patio and drank some margaritas. Came back a couple of days later for lunch and the food was... More

Food service was a little slow, but the food itself was delicious. Local blues and rock bands play here every weekend. Located in JT, not far from Joshua Tree National Park.

This is a very neat pub-type restaurant with a western feel. We had very good food and excellent service at a busy time for dinner. We skipped the deep fried Twinkies, however.

The food here was tasty and the staff were great. My friends and I ordered a variety of salads, sandwiches, and burgers. The burgers are 100% grass-feed beef, at least according to the advertising. We all enjoyed our food. A wide selection of standard, good pub food.

The Saloon is very casual, but isn't that what you're looking for after a day in the park? They have a great selection of micro-brews on tap and the best burgers in the area. There are also a couple of pool tables, if you enjoy a game of pool.

On a hot day, respite can be found inside this saloon! Good choices on full menu. Delicious BLT and jalapeño burger were enjoyed by our party of two. Delicious sweet potato fries and onion rings too. Definitely appears to be the locals' hangout. Some TV monitors for sports, dartboard, pool table and a Happy Hour welcomes all.

Stopped in for lunch. Great menu with great food and great prices and great service. They have a lot of tables for food service. Staff is great and prompt. Is built in the old western style but do not let the outward looks fool you. The place is great inside. Good music and lots of TV's for sports and also... More

My wife and I had lunch here today. I had a steak sandwich and she had a grilled cheese. The food was good but we weren't offered drink refills or asked how it was until it was time for the check. I'd go here again for drinks and wings but not for a sit down meal.

The food was the weakest link at this lively bar, but the beer and atmosphere were great. The crowd of diverse locals and tourists made the saloon feel lively and uplifting and the fish tacos weren't bad, but the food could definitely improve.
