We stopped in for lunch. The menu is somewhat limited, consisting of breakfast items and a variety of burgers and sandwiches. I will note that several of the breakfast items were pretty hearty, like the chicken-fried steak breakfast and the pork chop breakfast. All of the food was well prepared and tasty. My wife thought the iced tea was a... More

This is a great place to eat at. Clean with great food at good portions. I ordered the Southwest Cobb Salid and it was fantastic. Servers are fast and helpful.

Love this place! Was told their name is changing so please be aware. Did not ask when but was told it will be called The Giggling Cactus! As long as the food or service doesn't change then they can call it whatever they want. We had breakfast, my husband had the big meat omelette and I had the mohave Benedict.... More

Thought we'd try Juicy's on this trip through Needles. We both had the Baja Bacon Burger and were not disappointed. Wonderful and deserving of bring called juicy. The regular seasoned fries were ok, but we'll try another of the side selections next time. Our server was an absolute joy!

I had a nice breakfast here that tasted like home cooking and the service was very friendly as well. This is a locally owned place and it's conveniently located right next to the Best Western Hotel and in fact is the provider for their breakfasts. Good food and reasonably priced.

We pulled off the highway and stumbled upon this little gem. Ordered the freshest wraps I've tasted in s while. The kids loved them. My husband ordered a burger which was very generous and very tasty. Service was excellent, food served fast. The restrooms were really clean. A great find!
