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!

I had planned on stopping here many times over the years and this time it happened! My hubby and teenager loved the place inside and out. And the food was the best bar food we have had in my years! We will be back!

This is a MUST STOP if riding in the Barstow desert! They are right off Highway 247, but I don't think they need a road. Probably less than 1% of the people that go here actually get here from the road. This is a haven for desert riders. Quads, Jeeps, Razors, bikes, etc... If you ride the Barstow desert, this... More

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.

I visited this cafe on our walk, the food was excellent and the staff were very welcoming and friendly, inside the cafe there is plenty of history to look at, at the back of the cafe there is places you can pitch up ya tent. Would recommend this cafe to everyone 5stars from me

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.

We camped behind Slash X Café/Saloon last weekend with 6 trailers, lots of toys and a good number of people. We visited the bar twice, once on Friday and once on Saturday. 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
