“Best burgers in the West?!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

This place was awesome. The service great, so clean and tidy and a real American diner vibe. The food, especially the burgers are not only superb but great value. A great find en route to Wickenburg Arizona via Joshua tree. Make sure you stop here.

“Great place for a quick lunch”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I just had lunch here. The service was good and friendly as well. My French dip sandwich and my wife's grill cheese were tasty. As we're locals we'll be back to try breakfast.

“A Modern 50's delight”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We had a great breakfast at Carla's. The décor is "hot-rod 50's." Including jukeboxes at each table (remember those?), black and white tiles, etc. The place is spotless and the service is excellent and friendly. The coffee is locally ground, so that is good too. Prices are good, a hearty breakfast for around 7 -8 dollars. It is destined to become a local favorite. Well worth the stop. The rest of Yucca Valley seems to be "fast food" types, so much better to eat local!

“First Class Little Diner”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Today we stopped off at this little diner, it was like stepping back in the past. What a joy it was, clean and tidy, the staff were so polite, friendly and helpful. Our order was served to us in good time, piping hot and well presented. Although I only had their 57 Chevy Bel-air burger it was the best burger I've had for many years. We discovered that it was under new ownership and had reopened only a month ago. We've already decided to return next time we are up that way, pity it isn't closer to us as we'd visit it more often. This is a great first class little diner.

“Fabulous Fifties Feel and Good Old-fashioned Service”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

What a fun place! Karla's Route 62 Old Timer Diner hits the spot for a real taste of good old-fashioned food and service. Stopped by on the way out of town for breakfast after a Joshua Tree hiking trip, and it didn't disappoint. Try any of the filling egg breakfasts with great coffee - a terrific way to start your day! Karla is a lovely lady as well.
