Well worth the stop!

There is not a lot to choose from in Needles but this stop was well worth it. The staff were warm and helpful and the food was good and plentiful. The potato salad was very good. Go with the waitresses recommendation and you won't go wrong.

We read about this restaurant on TripAdvisor. And it was close to the motel we stayed in. We went for both dinner and breakfast. Do know that there are only a couple ofrestaurants in Needles,so the choice is not large. The servers are truly warm and lovely and nice. Dinner was really mediocre. But this is a very small town...

Our second visit to Juicy's. It's next door to the Best Western and there is a complimentary breakfast. Classic diner. Very warm welcome. Extensive menu of freshly cooked food. Inexpensive and that includes the wine! If you are travelling a great place to stop off.

So, who would have thought that we'd have such a great overnight at the Best Western in Needles and fabu breakfast at Juicy's the next morning on our way across the Mojave to Joshua Tree. Thanks Annetta for taking such good care of us, and for the delicious eggs and bacon!

I really didn't expect to find much in the way of restaurants in town. But this was recommended by the desk clerk at my hotel. Turned out that it was an excellent choice! They had a very diverse menu with many more options than I expected. Erica the bartender was very attentive and I enjoyed the scampi over flavored rice... More

Service was fast and courteous. Our server was not only efficient, she was also engaging and personable. We felt like we were treated like family. The menu has a good variety of selections. We were staying at the Best Western next door and Juicy's is where BW serves the breakfast which is included in a night's stay. I had the... More

We have been here multiple times, and the food is always stellar. I had the Chicken Parmesan one time, and it was the juiciest that I have ever had. I recommend anything you want to eat, because the food is always good. Its one of only two full-service restaurants in the area, and if you want other food than BBQ,... More

We had lunch at this cafe and not only was the staff super friendly but the food was very good. The rib sampler was delicious and plenty to eat!! Their onion rings are the best I've had. The staff were fast and efficient. Will definitely return there. Oh and their Blood Mary's were awesome!!!

Hello We arrived at the hotel next door to Juicy's and they recommended the Cafe next door. We had dinner there. The meat loaf that my husband had was excellent and my salad was super - fresh with good tastes. April G was our server at dinner and she was friendly, happy and provided excellent service. Their homemade biscuits are... More

Had breakfast at Juicys and every one of us loved it. The staff was very friendly and efficient and the homemade biscuits and gravy are outstanding. My husband got a scramble with smoked brisket that tasted like it came right off the smoker and we each had one of their self proclaimed famous bloody marys...DELICIOUS! So glad we made the... More
