I've been to Borrego springs a couple times on my way to San Diego, and this seems to be the best place we have found in that small city. The salad, chicken strips and soups are always good, the seasoned fries as well. We like the service as well, the few times that we have stopped by we have not left unhappy. Make sure to try it!

It is not about the food, it is a place where you know everyone and you can talk to everyone.
It 's everyone's living room, a place where everyone is respected and where respect is demanded or else...I would go there everyday if I had time. I try at least once or twice a week.On week-ends bikers and hikers,artists children, parents, grandparents. BUSY.

it's good food and fair prices in a casual place. yes it's a bar, but it's also very family friendly. we've been several times over the last 2 yrs and have never had a bad meal. the baked grinders are fantastic, homemade potato chips hot & crispy. employees friendly, service good. Borrego Springs is our quick get-away destination and Carlee's Place is the first choice to eat.

Let's start by saying that there are very few choices for eating out in Borrego Springs (especially in June when everything is closed). This is a bar--they serve food! The atmosphere was great for a bar--and our service was pretty good. I would say stick to burgers and sandwiches to be safe. The ribs were not that great and I read that the pizza was horrible. They served gazpacho and it wasn't super---it definitely had some "suspect" mini shrimp in there--but alas we did not get sick! Maybe we are just too spoiled with all the superb food in San Diego! The french corner was closed when we visited and the Arches were also under a 2 week renovation for that hotel too. If burgers is what you are looking for Carlee's Place will do for sure!

Due to the fact that most of the restaurants are closed in the low season (summer) we decided not to eat at Carmelita's Mexican Grill for a 3rd night in a row & instead tried the pizza (takeout) from Carlee's. It was the worst pizza we've ever eaten. Being that we grew up in NYC & near Chicago, respectively, we DO have high standards for pizza, but the frozen pizza sold at Trader Joe's is light years better.

The pizza from Carlee's was GREASY, had a thick crust that tasted like cardboard, tomato sauce tasted straight out the can. Truly awful. We threw it out. It cost about $20.
