My husband and I had breakfast here twice during our visit to Borrego Springs. It's a genuine local place, not fancy, but with reliably good food and friendly service. My husband loved their breakfast special includes eggs, French toast and bacon or ham.

We've been here for breakfast many times over the past 20 years ... and have never been disappointed. Perfectly cooked eggs, crispy hash browns and light and fluffy pancakes. Breakfast variety to satisfy both large and small appetites. Reasonable prices. Value can't be beaten!

We had a delicious lunch with great service. The burger and the fish sandwich were very good and the buns were lightly toasted and yummy! Dill pickles! Great sweet potato fries!The additional bonus was that the food was ready very quickly!

A power outage didn't deter the great crew at Kendall's; they made it fun, and we didn't have to wait long at all to get our meal. Thank you!

Delicious French toast. Love having breakfast there plus fresh squeezed juices. Biscuits and gravy are like your southern grandma used to make. Yum

Waitress handles toast, all of them, all of them handle cash and dirty dishes. Saturday there was no hot water or soap. Cook ate at counter, walked in kitchen back to work without washing.
