Had a really great omelette here, hash browns were very good, service was slow, but to be expected for how busy they were. Would eat here again, in a heartbeat.

I-10 has all the fast food restaurants right off the highway. If you have more than a few minutes, give the Mountain Quail a try. About 5 minutes off I-10, but well worth it. Classic cafe menu, friendly service, clean and a good bet for a sit down lunch of breakfast. Burgers are great as are the breakfasts.

This little off the beaten path diner is a gem. The staff is wonderful and the food is good. We stopped on the way from Palm Springs to Apache Junction. We had soup, salads, meat loaf. Not disappointed at all.

Found it by accident while looking for the Gunny Museum and stopped in for lunch. Friendly staff and fast service. Would stop in again whenever in Quartzsite.

We found on Yelp and were not disappointed. See the photos for our quality lunch and stop by. We each had different sandwiches, I had the chicken Malibu which was better than expected. We will definitely return & recommend.

Quick service, and everything was hot. I had the bacon cheeseburger with sweet potato fries and my husband had 3 pancakes. We could have shared one of these! We were traveling through to California but would stop on another trip. "Where the locals go" would be another descriptor.

This restaurant is off of Main St pass the Senior Center on Moon Mountain. The food here is excellent. We ate here twice, once with friends, the second for Valentine's Dinner. On the first visit I had the Rib Eye Steak dinner. The steak was so good, I didn't have to put any steak sauce on the meat. Others had... More

Early morning drive between Phoenix and LA, wanted breakfast quick, but not fast food. Found this place in between exits, truly in and out in 30 minutes with a cook to order breakfast. Great value for the dollar and definitely better than fast food.

Decent diner food and a few sides on the menu for my vegan sister. The waitress was great and considering the place was packed the food came out rather quickly.

Service is always great here for us. Have been coming here for years. Can get very busy in the winter though, snowbirds flock in...Food is always good and I personally love all the soups.
