Food & Drink in Desert Hot Springs

Select Local Merchants

Named for the subject of a legendary tale from 19th-century California, Willie Boys Saloon & Dance Hall surrounds visitors with fun, food, and drink, as well as the rustic frontier atmosphere of the Old West. Diners can feast on pulled pork, spare ribs, fish and chips, and burgers, pairing them with beer and wine as revelers on the spacious dance floor groove to country, classic rock, and top 40 hits. The space prides itself on its collection of antiques and memorabilia, including an authentic Brunswick-made bar from the 1800s, a 19th-century bank-teller gate, and a jail cell from Deadwood believed to have once housed the killer of Wild Bill Hickok and a man who said a curse word on a Sunday.

The Sesma family has permeated the colorful dining area of Guacamoles with the tempting fragrances of fresh and authentic Mexican fare for more than 20 years, and along the way has won the admiration of reporters from Eye on the Desert. Drawing from decades of Mexican cooking and restaurant experience, Tony and Artemisa Sesma curate an eclectic menu that catalogs a selection of tacos, burritos, and traditional dishes. Several vegetarian and low-calorie items create culinary diversity, and a fresh salsa bar showcases seven choices of red and green salsas, the two colors most frequently mentioned in lawsuits involving Santa Claus. The bright blue tables that accouter indoor and outdoor patio seating areas encourage conversational lunchtime lingering, and the restaurant radiates a warm, communal atmosphere with a family staff, vibrant artwork, and an absence of conversationally challenged stone gargoyles.

Palm Springs' bevy of fine-dining offerings begins at the Riviera's Circa 59, where seasonal ingredients take center stage on a carefully crafted menu of artfully prepared California fusion dishes. Innovative house cocktails and an extensive wine list complement grilled morsels including steaks and fresh-from-the-coast seafood. Off-campus, Las Casuelas Terraza—one of a constellation of authentic Mexican restaurants owned by the locally famous Delgado family—draws on closely guarded family recipes to dish up light and fluffy chilis rellenos, tender shredded-pork carnitas, and homestyle beef picadillos. Peckish travelers can also find small-scale appetite appeasement at Hadley Fruit Orchards, an emporium of local munchies popular with locals since the 1930s, where peanut brittle, crispy okra chips, and a variety of dried dates await a rumbling tummy to call their own. Fewer than 10 minutes from the Riviera, the stunning Escena Golf Club allows visitors to feast on lush views framed by the towering San Jacinto Mountains as its 99 bunkers devour errant shots and wayward pitching wedges. The Jack Nicklaus–designed course competes for aesthetic attention with the clubhouse, which boasts a modern design and serves as home to the local favorite, Escena Lounge & Grill.
