Great value, good food

We were in Yucca Valley for a couple of days and John's Place was recommended for lunch. Good call! The place was quite busy when we dropped in and we were lucky to nab the last available table. You order at the counter and they deliver the food to your table. The menu is quite extensive, but we... read more

We used to live in the desert years ago. Growing up we used to go to John's Place for their burgers. Everything they serve is fantastic. Make sure you expand your taste opportunities and try the specials. You will not be upset.

Had heard good things about this restaurant but found out they don't even serve beer and you can't bring in any from outside so we left. Sorry.

John's Place not only has delicious food, it is very generous to the community on various holidays and with their various specials weekly. Besides the very good breakfasts...my favorite is the Pastrami Sandwich with the fried zucchini. YUM!

Best breakfast, lunch and dinner in the area. We were completely satisfied with all the meals eaten. Although we did not eat the menu in one sitting. We still are working to completing their choices. Let me say if you were blindfolded and pointed to any food choice you would have the best meal, without breaking your wallet. As you... More

A good place above the average fast food chain. Restaurant has recently been remodeled. They wait on you at breakfast and dinner and you go to the counter at lunch. The prices have gone up over the years, and the servings have gotten smaller, but still a good choice for a burger, and onion rings.

what can I say about John's place pretty small inside dim lighting high prices for the food considering the quality of food they are getting, overall I wouldn't eat there again unless it was the only place in town that serves food I will say no to people inside were ok good people in Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms.
