Admittedly i only wen't to Juicy's as it was the closest to my Hotel (Rio Del Sol). They had recommended it the night previously but i chose not to go because it sounded like they was on commission for it. I was wrong. I walked in and was promptly seated by a friendly waitress. I ordered a coffee, soda, bannana... More

We popped in to try the food, we have heard great things about this place. Being skeptic we went in. Being greated by a cheery person and sitting close to the kitchen is great. These cooks can put together dish after dish without the annoying screaming that diners sometimes do. The food is plentiful, there is more than enough food... More

Stopped off on a drive from Death Valley to Grand Canyon. Of all the places in Needles - this looked the best. Classic American Diner - unashamed and proud of it! Staff were charming and the food was tasty and massive! Recommend the bed burger - avocado and blue. Fantastic - and the waitress didn't make feel like a freak... More

Had a lovely breakfast here and the waitress was very nice. Had French toast and it was good. Has a modern feel so not for you if you are expecting old world surroundings.Food was good and would return.

Took note of the TA reviews and was glad we did. Stopped on the way from Santa Clarita to Winslow and was warmly invited in (102 f outside ). The food ( salads and burgers) and service were great , very homely and genuine. Shame we had to eat and run but if we were in the area again would... More

We stopped at Juicy's while traveling to the Grand Canyon. We reviewed the trip advisor ratings and decided to stop here for our late lunch. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. I had the meat loaf and my son had the southern fried pork chop. The meat loaf was good with brown gravy and sautéed onions. The mash potatoes... More

Stopped for lunch based on Trip Advisor reviews and we found everything to be as good as promised. The signature Bloody Mary with pickled asparagus was fabulous. Mushroom burger, fries and Asian salad with grilled shrimp and peanut dressing were all wonderful. It's a million miles from nowhere, but if you are traveling I-40 around Needles area, it's a must...

We stopped in for lunch knowing it would be a bit overpriced based on other reviews. Our waitress was super friendly, but the the food was average. They don't have a changing table in the restroom which was a bit of a challenge.

I ate there 4 times in 2 days !!! The ribs were insanely good, although the full rack was so big it almost killed me. I thought the dinner was absolutely excellent (burgers and cheese steak were also really great) but the breakfast choices were more average. Not bad but not great either. Service was also great at dinner (April),... More
