I researched this restaurant through tripadvisor and we were not disappointed in the least. Mid-afternoon visit had excellent service, hot food, great salsa, and superb main dishes. This is where the locals suggest and I understand why...great food and great service.

Let us remember that this is within spitting distance of Palm Desert folks. The area around it may be best described as post-industrial and the interior is definitely cavernous-70's-Denny's-style but the service is very welcoming and the food is tasty, fresh and plentiful, not to...More
