We were pretty surprised to find the best food in Indio at the Tack Room Tavern." -- We ended up eating there several nights of our recent extended visit in Indio and recommend it highly. Pro tip first: The patio is fabulous. The inside tables are overwhelmingly loud. Go with the patio. Our party tried many men items as there... More

This was by far the best food we have eaten so far in Indio. The prime rib French dip was excellent! Everyone was pleased with their supper.

It's always fun to go to the Tack Room Tavern! The ambience is one you will not find anywhere else, there are seats at the bar where you can sit on saddles, the food although is not really high quality, it is a fun place to visit. Be sure to get there early and view the magnificent Rose Garden next... More

This was our second visit to the Tack Room. Love the quaintness of the restaurant, had the pulled pork sandwich which was delicious! Substituted onion rings instead of fries and they awe fantastic. Service was prompt and parking ample!

We visited the Tack Room after going to the Southwest Arts Festival. We had worked up an appetite. We were greeted immediately and a table was set up for us right away. They were very busy, but there were enough servers to handle everybody. The kitchen must be well managed too, because after ordering, our food came out in an... More

Came by car this time instead of bike and sat inside as it was rainy and cold. Had a great Salad and noticed a few other salads that looked good as well as some of the best Fries I have ever had. Service was great and attentive.

Went here at night though I think it would be a neat place to visit during the day as well. Our kids loved the saddles they have set-up on some of the stools and its a great, casual place to watch a game and grab a beer. Food was pretty good, definitely no one complained in our group.

My husband and I went to Tack Room Tavern last weekend for lunch after being away for several months. We noticed that their menu has changed but still offers a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, and typical lunch fare. The new menu has a few more "different" choices. For example, I ordered the turkey sandwich but rather than just being... More
