I have family in Palm Springs so they insisted I try this place and they were right! I shared a few dishes with the family and can easily recommend the reuben sliders, the bbq brisket sliders, pastrami sliders, the quesadillas, and especially reuben fries! They have an extremely extensive menu which makes it difficult to choose. They also have a... More

My wife and I are enemies of franchise food so when we found this place we felt overjoyed. We like eating here at least once when visiting PS because its menu is simply staggering! Even though I'm not a New Yorker, I've been to NYC enough times to swoon over newyorkish restaurant food which often involves Jewish-like dishes (and I'm... More

Our service was great and the atmosphere is very casual. If you can't find something here you like you just can't be satisfied. The menu is so wide the only one at fault if you don't get what you want is you.

The food was ok and reasonably priced. But as we were in the middle of our meal we were offered a take out box, the rest of meal then felt rushed as they wanted to close up, so much so they were vacuuming around us. We arrived about 8:30 and was not advised of the closing time of 9pm. Only... More

The spaghetti my daughter ordered was delicious! My fettuccini alfredo was just okay. The prices at the restaurant itself are average for this type of place, but I paid a delivery company to bring it to my room, so in the end, I spent way more than I planned to! For the spaghetti, I would eat there again--and I would... More

Pastrami on a Kaiser roll was not what I expected. The roll was not a Kaiser roll. The pastrami was cold and serving small.

This place has the best customer service and the biggest helpings around. Breakfast only order one omelet and split it they will bring two orders of toast. Do not forget to save room for there cinnamon roll pancakes these are the best. Afterwards you will have to pick something out for the road from there great bakery.

Extensive menu. We have visited Palm Springs 3 times over the last 4 years and we look forward to having breakfast or lunches here every day. The menu is extensive, the cakes are out of this world. My favourite has always been chicken noodle soup however this last time the noodles are now like vermicelli and the chicken stock very... More
