There aren't too many restaurant choices along this stretch of the hwy, so we were pleased to find the Alamo served up a good breakfast and really friendly quick service. Portions are just the right size and good value. We also bought a package of very fresh dates at reasonable price. That saved us from having to stop at retail... More

Decent Mexican food at reasonable prices. The sauces were delicious! Not a fancy place but better than a hole in the wall. Simple, worn booths and diner style tables. Mom and Pop kind of place.

To find this place after driving through the post-apocalyptic wasteland that is Salton City is to stumble on an oasis. It is plainly furnished, but the beer is cold, everyone in the place is very friendly, and the food is out of this world. My chile verde crumbled on the fork. The rice and beans were homemade and excellent. The... More

Ate lunch here around 11am on a Wednesday in August ( one of the best months to visit the desert by the way - hot, dry and wonderful). Nice booths and decorated well. The interior bar down below was closed but the space looked inviting. Service was top notch. Carne Asada burrito and tacos were ordered. They were a tad... More

I was in Salton City for work and had some time to kill before a meeting. I decided I would get a bite to eat and noticed that there are not a lot of places to eat in the area. I stopped for lunch and was greeted by a wonderful young man named Oscar. His service was "top notch" and... More
