“Carlee's Bar & Grill: The Place to Go in Borrego Springs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

We had one day and one night in Borrego Springs - and after an awesome day hiking, this was the right spot for dinner! It was a Saturday night and clearly, this was the place to go in the little town of Borrego Springs! We didn't have reservations (didn't even think to do that!), so we had our dinner at the bar - turned out to be the perfect spot. There was a great 3 piece live blues cover band playing, a happy crowd with many apparent "regulars" from the town and a very friendly atmosphere. On top of that, the menu had many choices from a wide variety of burgers and sandwiches to fish, pastas, salads etc.and the food was actually very good. It was a great find, the perfect spot in this desert town to enjoy food, drink, music and company.

“It was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

The food was good and the place is more like a pub. We got there one hour before closing time and felt a bit rushed through the service. However everybody was nice.
