There are 2 of them. One in Indio and the other in Palm Desert. Original one is Indio and a bit older but the food is amazing. More of a steakhouse menu but does offer a good variety. The portions are quite large and easy to share if you must. Some of the best Prime Rib in the valley. The... More

Looking for a good place to go for lunch. Came across this place. It was okay. Staff was super friendly. Took some time to bring out our food once we ordered (only one other person in our area). Large portions. My nephew and I ordered sandwiches with sliced beef and both sandwiches were cold. My nephew and I took leftovers.... More

I was recently on jury duty here in Indio. When we had our lunch break, a group of us went there for lunch. Everyone of us had a terrific lunch and we were back to the courthouse in plenty of time. The portions are huge and as stated the food is delicious! The service is fast and friendly! I would... More

Went for breakfast/lunch.... I had a turkey cobb salad. The lettuce was so soaking wet the dressing ran off of it. It was like soup in the bottom of the dish. The salad itself was very good...let's spin the lettuce dry and then serve it. Table mates had breakfast. They all said the food was good, but the presentation was... More

One of my co-workers suggested we have the prime rib here, he was so right! The prime rib was melt in your mouth tender and cooked to perfection! The cost of what we paid for it was a little more than what I would have paid in Las Vegas, NV. The atmosphere of the restaurant was an older decor. I... More

The wife and I grabbed lunch here while visiting the area. The service was quick and friendly. All of the food we had was very good to excellent. (My wife said her filet mignon salad was the best.) The wife said their homemade bleu cheese/ranch dressing was also excellent. The bar was steady with local patrons. The only 'mediocre' thing... More

If you want a great pour, friendly owner and often bartender and very good food then Cactus Jacks is the place for you. There is also a location in Palm Desert but this original location has a more historic feeling. My wife loves the sirloin steak sandwich and I am a huge fan of the patty melt. We eat in... More

Have had breakfast and lunch here and both are really good. Parking is a little iffy since it is connected with a hotel, but I have always been able to find a spot. Service is good and prices are reasonable

Having an appointment in Indio, I stopped in for lunch. There were more people in the bar than in the dining area and probably because they are better known for their drinks than the food. Like another reviewer posted "Solid Bar, So-So Food" Albeit I did not come here for drinks due to my appointment and long drive back to... More

We came here to watch a basketball game on TV so scored OK on that point. Unfortunately we also ate; not so good as choices were mostly fried. There are other sports bars. Give this one a miss.
