The food was quite good (with one glaring exception.) My son had the shrimp and I had the tri tip sandwich, and we both enjoyed our meals. But I must warn you DO NOT order the beans as your sidedish. They were just awful tasting, so bad I can't even describe them. I took 2 bites and couldn't finish them.... More

Tasty broad menu that served our varied group, from burgers, to fish tacos to fresh Ahi. Decent vegetarian choices too.Moderate prices. Locals and tourists feel welcome. Has music and is a local watering hole into the night.

Stopped for lunch, always crowded and hard to get a seat, but good food and service. I think it's our third time eating here.

The atmosphere here is great! All American vibe; could be a movie set. We both had their "Mindshaft" burger with fries. It took a little while to arrive, but when it did I was in heaven, perfectly cooked medium rare with great french fries. My friend had an additional side of cole slaw which he said was very good. Three... More

I live in Joshua Tree, and this is my favorite place to eat and drink. So often in Tourist towns, you find mediocre food and crappy service from disinterested staff. Joshua Tree is the exact opposite! The food is great in every restaurant in town, and the service is really good. At the saloon, they have an extensive menu .... More

Old time western bar with friendly staff and good ribs. Nothing fancy but well priced and something not to be missed after a visit to the Park.

Great food! Loved the burger, ribs, and the pickles were great too. We shared because it was too hard to choose.

Place was busy, but service was good and burgers are definitely big enough to share. Onion rings... yum.
