Don't you just hate it when- after hours on the interstate - you pull into some town for some rest and some food, and then the only place to eat for miles around is yet another greasy fast food joint? Not so in Needles. If ever you find yourself in Needles, make sure to eat at Juicy's Famous River Cafe. It's a friendly, down-to-earth, and unhurried restaurant, with a menu that may at first glance look a little basic, but then somehow delivers very tasty food to your table. Even non-fast food words like 'fresh' and 'vegetables' come to mind...
Prices are fair, service is friendly, and if you don't feel like eating but would rather have a drink... they also have a bar area.

We recently ate at Juicy's. The whole experience was delightful. Very friendly hostess and our server Chris was execellent throughout the meal process. He was friendly, knowledgeable and very personable.The food was tasty, lots of it (very good sauteed vegies) and fairly priced. Save room for dessert.

We're not sure where the name came from but the restaurant, picked on a whim by we four Canadian bird watchers, proved to be an excellent choice. The restaurant is clean, airy and nicely decorated but better still are the ladies who run the place: friendly, witty... but best of all, they seemed to enjoy their job. It was like dropping in to a friend's home and staying for a meal and conversation. Add great food to that and what more can you ask for. Plus there was plenty of parking and in a good location from which to explore the city and surroundings.
One more thing: This particular restaurant is in Lake Havasu City, AZ, and is associated with the Needles restaurant of the same name.
