“Great Staff and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

The food was great and the staff wonderful. After a day in the hot sun, their food and drinks hit the spot.

“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Passing through Desert Hot Springs, wearing my 'Snake' shirt, saw this place. Serendipitous! Went in, menu did not really look 'Southwestern', but appearances are deceiving, it is the flair with how the food is prepared. I had a Taco Salad for lunch and was prepared for the usual generic offering. Boy, was I surprised! Meat (lots) was not greasy, lightly seasoned over at least three kinds of lettuce and spinach, tomato and onion. All served in a flakey taco shell. On the side, sour cream and salsa. Oh, the salsa, fresh made, superb, I had two helpings! Service - excellent - friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Decor - pleasant and comfortable. Full bar. Looked at the dinner menu, wished I could do that, but can't be there.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is a long established restaurant in Desert Hot Springs. Having said that, it is an old looking building. The food, especially breakfast, is very good. It is home cooking, nothing fancy. It is very reasonably priced.

“Basic food, good price, no surprises.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

If you are looking for good solid basic American fare, you just found it. Nothing special, just lots of down home cooking.
