JJ's Oasis Mexican Restaurant in Palm Springs has the best food I've had outside of Mexico. Everything is homemade and fresh. They even fresh squeeze limes for their Margaritas. Skip the pricey tourist traps and get some real Mexican food!

While the owner of JJ's is very friendly and the wait staff is friendly and helpful, the food id just OK. I have enjoyed much better Mexican food at many other places. I would not return.

Its not a trip to Palm Springs without our JJ's Mexican fix. Great, friendly owners that work the floor. Small, family owned and easy to get into. great salsa and chips. My favorites are their fish tacos or their flautas. Try JJ's and see what you have been missing.

This has been a consistently good Mexican restaurant for many years in Palm Springs. The food is very good, the tequila flan is outstanding. The wait staff listen to you, laugh with you, talk to you, not in a disruptive way, but always concerned you are enjoying yourselves. They don’t rush you or ignore you. Sometimes not an easy road.
Will continue to go here, yum!

We made a spontaneous trip to Palm Springs and my wife decided she wanted tamales. Okay, fine. I got on the Googles and found JJ's with some promising reviews. It was a little more difficult to find the actual restaurant but I'm sure glad we did!

She ordered 3 tamales, I had a seafood enchilada and a fish taco. The tamales were well-presented, unwrapped and covered (not smothered, just covered) in sauce. Not too spicy, not bland at all. Well made and filling.

The enchilada had plenty of shrimp in it and a delicious sauce, and the fish taco was just as good. Fish fillets, not just fish sticks like some places use. We were both full for less than $20.

The parking leaves something to be desired, but if you can find a spot please do yourself a favor and go. The service is great, the decor is authentic, and the ambiance is energizing and friendly. There's even some outdoor seating for those days you don't want to be inside. You really can't go wrong here.
