“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a long established restaurant in Desert Hot Springs. Having said that, it is an old looking building. The food, especially breakfast, is very good. It is home cooking, nothing fancy. It is very reasonably priced.

“Basic food, good price, no surprises.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

If you are looking for good solid basic American fare, you just found it. Nothing special, just lots of down home cooking.

“Cocktails in mid afternoon. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

We were nicely greeted and offered seats in the small but quaint bar area. It was around 4pm and it was understandably quiet. Our server proficiently prepared our drinks and came back often to see if we were ok. We ordered some good sliders and taquitos with guacamole. Everything was great!

“Old fashioned”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The food is everyday American cooking, you will need to season it to your liking The place is old and in need of fixing up. There are hours when they are very busy that their service leaves something to be desired, when they are not so busy their service is good. (Maybe they should hire extra help for their busy hours.) However, it is reasonably priced.
