    After whatever amazing main you choose, do not forget to chase it with a berry cobbler cake under a large dollop of ice cream.

    Great food, strong drinks, and most of all, bluegrass/country/folk live music (their regular band is awesome, go ahead and square dance away). Check out Pioneer Town out back while you wait.

    Get a table with a view of the band and order something that they've grilled on their outdoor mesquite fire: pulled pork, ribs, tri-tip. Finish it off with a side of mac and cheese and a margarita.

    Usually, you do not need a reservation during the dead of summer. In the winter, make reservations well in advance for the weekend if you want to be seated so that you may see the band while you eat.

    Pappy & Harriet's go and do not miss the "Chili". Seriously this is the best I've ever had. Don't forget the Mac' Cheese either. Funky and fun and the drinks are huge

    If it's a hot day, it's nice and cool inside. The food is so delicious! Loved the grilled chicken sandwich and the nachos got a rave from my table as well!

    Legendary local roadhouse with great BBQ and great live music. On weekends check if there's a show - it sometimes get booked out well in advance.

    Make sure you come on a night when there is a band playing. And make sure you ask for a cobbler pie...perfect stop after a sunset in Joshua tree.

    Catfish sandwich and a lemonade with Jack is always nice. Cheesy fries aren't overly cheesy and include bacon and onions - like an awesome baked potato loaded!

    At night, it's a haven for concerts with some big name acts. Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear and Modest Mouse have graced the small stage with their presence. Read more

    The wait for a table is ridiculous, and the bleach blonde older women hostess is super rude. You have a better chance of getting a spot at the bar where the service is WAY better.

    staff are surly, rude, unhelpful. Unless you're a local/regular. Then they're all but blowing you. Prices are crazy- maybe the locals are charged less. music's so loud/bad earplugs are essential.
