Some of Gonzo Tacos' regulars are Yucca Valley locals. Others are out-of-towners who stop by whenever they're driving across the desert toward Joshua Tree National Park. But no matter where they come from, everyone who frequents Gonzo Tacos does so for the same reason: skillfully executed Mexican cuisine with more than a hint of fusion.
Inside the restaurant—decorated with memorabilia from the original gonzo journalist, Hunter S. Thompson—cooks stuff burritos and tacos with proteins such as Indian-style chicken tikka in yogurt sauce or sesame-marinated skirt steak complete with wasabi aioli. Vegetarians can opt for a filling of chardonnay-marinated veggies or order mac and cheese laced with savory Soyrizo. For dessert, try the Mexican chocolate tart studded with spiced pecans.
