Best restaurant in TwentyNine Palms. I am not a fan of smoked or barbecue meat but my family enjoyed it. The burger was not very good. The jalapeno appetizer was interesting and worth trying.

Excellent service in a family dinner. The meal is very good, especially the ribs. The portions are fit for a long meal. The value for our meal was top.

I ordered the beef ribs with the whiskey glaze and they were out of this world. The corn bread and cole slaw were pretty delicious, also. The service was good and the meal overall was very satisfying. Highly recommend it!

The beer was cold, the food was delicious, the staff was fast and very friendly. Seating area is very small. Plan to wait if you have a large group or call ahead.

Loved the ribs. They cook them on a BBQ pit in the front of the restaurant adding to the atmosphere. It gets busy and can take a long time to be seated. The staff are friendly but when busy may take time to acknowledge you. Just and the will be with you. The food is worth wait. Perfect cook on... More

Ambience: small, cozy room inside on a cold high desert evening. Food: try the house rub, either half or full rack. Good sharp balsamic dressing on the side green salad. Home made corn bread is light and fluffy and served with honey butter. And the beans are not boring. Very tasty meal! Service: prompt friendly attention. However I had to... More

When we arrived, there were lots of people - it was obviously a popular place with locals and tourists. Meat is grilled on an outside barbecue, and it smells great! We got lucky and were seated right away - there is inside and outside seating. The waitress was friendly and we got excellent service. The atmosphere was upbeat - lots... More

My wife and I stopped in for supper after a day of hiking. We both had a "Dave's Special Sandwich" with " poppers" as an appetizer. Everything we had was delicious. If you are in the area, you owe it to yourself to stop by.

What a great find! Authentic homemade everything. We had the famour baby back ribs and a couple of kids meals. Soooooo much food and so bloody delicious. The smell of the BBQ will draw you in from miles away. Very resonable prices for us visiting Aussies who know that good ribs at home are crazy priced. We went on a... More
