A no-nonsense Mexican-style restaurant on the main highway of 29 Palms. Friendly, efficient service and good food, as good a place as any in town.

This is a no frills restaurant, but the food is decent and I don't know what they do to the Cadillac margarita, but it's quite potent. Service is ok, but nothing special. Still is a good place if you need your run of the mill Mexican food fix.

I've been eating at Edchada's for decades now. The atmosphere is pleasant, food is fine as is the service. It used to be one of John Bachar's haunts.

We popped while driving from Las Vegas to San Diego. This is small garrison town in the middle of nowhere. On our passing visit there seamed to be more choice of tattoo parlours and Marine haircut barbers than restaurants - but I may have been mistaken. Consequently, I think we chose well! Shrimp special was great. Chicken fajitas went down... More

Edchadas is a staple in the 29 Palms area. The burritos are fine, but all the dishes rely on cheese to give them flavor. It's not bad Mexican, but it's a little more expensive than Castanedas (Santanas) and similar quality.

This restaurant is located in the middle of town and has parking behind the building. The food and margaritas were very tasty.

Food and service were average at best and it actually took much longer to get our meal than is typical. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy at the time either. The dining room itself looked a little rundown and wasn't very uplifting, in fact I found it to be the opposite. There weren't many options for dining near Joshua Tree and... More

The area around Joshua Tree is a bit of a food desert. This isn't surprising since it's fairly isolated. It's hard to compare a restaurant in place off the beaten path to the amazing Mexican food available in the LA area, but here goes. Edchadas is close to the park, the burritos are large, and it's open late (10pm). Everything... More
