Driving from Cali to Arizona. Needed a place to eat. Needles was the closest on the radar with Food. Settled down n Giggling Cactus. Restaurant was clean. Waitress was nice. Food was good. Menu was wraps, salads, burgers, or breakfast. Overall food was good.

As a group of six we were asked to sit in a side room which had the ambience of a squash court. We asked to be moved but were not allowed to. Four grey walls, no curtains, tablecloths, pictures. Weird! Food OK, staff jolly. We...More

We've eaten here before on previous trips to the area. It used to be called Juicy's River Café, but it's in the process of changing its name. My fish and chips were tasty, except that the tempura cod was overcooked, really chewy. I think it...More

This cafe was recommended by our hotel. It had the basic diner fare. A huge menu with lots of choices and variety. The food was good. Nothing to rave over but good. It was filling and had large portions. I suspect it is a staple...More

Good restaurant next to motel where we stayed. Dinner was good. I had the pastrami burger, which was just that: pastrami, burger & cheese, none of the usual veggie toppings; a bit on the greasy side but what else expected. Husband had the Caesar salad,...More
