Nice, old-fashioned diner from the 50's

Were in the mood for a hamburger so found this place on TripAdvisor. Took my family here during our stay in Palm Desert. Kids had milkshakes which were massive and overflowed into a second cup, more than enough for two. The hamburgers were pretty good, as was the Philly Cheesesteak. Both weren't too greasy. Kids meals were available for $6.5.... More

Keedy's is a Palm Desert tradition. It looks like a hole in the wall and is usually loud and crowded. But if you want great food from yesteryear, this is the joint. The date shakes, in one size only and a little over $6, are worth the trip alone. The best in town.

You should go for the food, fast service, and the history. This place opened in 1957 and I suspect hasn't changed much. The food is tasty, the decor Formica, and the noise level loud. The locals still have breakfast here and you can still get an authentic ice cream soda, a malt or a cherry coke but not at 50's... More

Step back 55 years ago and that is this place. An absolute gem in the desert. Great for breakfast and lunch. Always busy for a reason. Enjoy the 1950's and go.

Nothing to write home about. The food is good, the atmosphere is 50"s style dinner. If that is your cup of tea so to speak. enjoy! If not go else where. Palm Desert is full of great restaurants with a wide range of food types. Sometimes the 50's dinner style gets OLD.

I should have ordered what my companions did but was very happy with my meal. Love the ambience and decor.. felt like being in Grandma's house. Good reasonably priced food. You can't go wrong here!

This is a top quality spot for breakfast. Sometimes a short wait, especially on a weekend, but well worth it. Friendly, helpful wait staff. We never miss it when in Palm Desert.

Breakfast at Keedy's was a favorite this trip. The portions are HUGE and the service is the fastest we experienced. The Huevos Rancheros were outstanding. The ranchero sauce was full of flavor, but needed some heat. This was pretty easy to fix up with some hot sauce. Nothing fancy, but you won't leave hungry!

We've been coming to Keedys for years and it stays the same --excellent comfort food and the best date shake in the desert. The breakfasts are off the charts and their old fashioned burgers are the best.
