It's diner food as fast food. The burgers are thin and the french fries are usually undercooked. The omelets and hash browns are pretty good. I really only will go there for breakfasts, but I'm picky foodie. Oh and the service is usually pretty good.

We were hungry and on our way to Joshua Tree. We stopped here because we had to eat something before going into the park, but we didn't regret it! I ate a vegetarian burger with fries. It was so good! It was only our second day in the USA and we already had a real 'american experience' here :) >>>... More

Really enjoyed finding this gem in the desert. The breakfast I ordered (bacon & eggs) was cooked exactly as I ordered. The staff were very polite and accommodating to all of our requests. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean. The only small detail that I saw that was a problem was the time it took for someone to bus the... More
