Great Desert Bar and Grill

I gave this a 4 star rating using a "desert rats" point of view. We have been riding in the area for years and make at least one motorcycle trip to the slash from our camp every year. It is a great ride to get lunch and a beer and they have great chili fries!

Are you kidding no accessible washroom? How is this even legal in this day and age? Left disappointed with my party - never to return again

Seems a little out of the way; but, a nice place for a local business. I would patronize the business again.

Keep your hats in the car, Great beer and food when they are open. Ok when the SCORE races are on they are a good rest stop between Lucern Valley and Barstow.

On Friday it was pretty empty in there, ordered some pitchers, wings, and played some shuffleboard on one of the nicest tables I have played on. On Saturday... More

Slash X is the place you go for a beer and chili fries while riding off-road vehicles at the Stoddard Wells Off Highway Vehicle area. You can ride your dirt bikes right up to it. The beer is always cold and the food is decent. Hours are weird, you never know when it's going to be open or closed, but... More
