Restaurants in the Desert
Desert Restaurants include Chinese food, Mexican food, Italian food, seafood restaurants, breakfast restaurants, sushi, BBQ, Sunday brunch and more. Whether it be the enormous portions, outstanding views or unique flavors, these are the best restaurants in the desert. We've tried to concentrate on locally owned establishments and avoid the larger chains other than a few special restaurants. Grab a gyro plate on the way to Vegas at the Mad Greek in Baker. Enjoy some of the freshest seafood around at Fisherman's in Palm Springs. Savor fine-dining at Melvyn's in downtown Palm Springs. Sample the best margarita in town at Armando's Bar & Grill in Palm Desert. Take in the golf course views at the Fireside Lounge in Borrego Springs.
