Let me see, souvenir stores, mcdonald's, panda express and other fast food chains, and not much else. May have difficulty parking when tour buses start to unload passengers, as it is a convenient stop. And because of that, the restaurant may have lines. Can't think...More

Like a tiny quirky mall/boardwalk. We needed a quick breakfast on our way out of town. Found this place full of locals - always a good sign.

This place has many vendors with trinkets and gift type stuff. Always busy with tourists. If you come through Barstow it's worth the stop to look around, stretch your legs and grab some things for people back home.
