Babe’s BBQ & Brewhouse

One of my favorite restaurants in the Coachella Valley is Babe’s BBQ & Brewhouse in Rancho Mirage! Outstanding happy hour specials. Amazing southern fried shrimp appetizer and beef brisket!

Don Diego’s

Outstanding rolled taco appetizer at Don Diego’s of Indian Wells. Also one of the most stunning Mexican restaurant dining rooms I’ve been in.

Omni Rancho Las Palmas

Outstanding lobster mac & cheese from Blu Ember at my favorite resort in Rancho Mirage, CA! I order it every time I stay here.

The Broken Yolk Cafe

Outstanding Western Benedict at The Broken Yolk Cafe in Temecula! Although somewhat haphazardly constructed, it was still super delicious.


Outstanding Baja Grill chicken burrito at Rubio’s! Rather small, but super tasty.

Marinade on Main

This stunning burger is one of the best things I’ve put in my mouth at Marinade on Main! Made with a perfectly grilled hand formed beef patty, blanketed with melted cheese; crispy carnitas; pico de gallo; and guacamole. Outstanding!

Taco Bell

Dinner recently at the Bell; finally tried the Doubledilla! I wasn’t quite sure how to pronounce it so it left me, and likely the cashier somewhat embarrassed. It’s got a double portion of grilled marinated steak, creamy jalapeno sauce and a 3 cheese blend, all grilled up in a flour tortilla. Chicken was also an option. Either is only $4.99. I requested it “double-pressed” which crisps up the tortilla a little more and really melts that cheese. One of the best things I’ve had at Taco Bell. Served with chips and a surprisingly tasty salsa.

Boll Weevil

Super delicious pastrami burger at the Weev!

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Best chips & salsa and dare I say, best happy hour in Ramona!

Charm Thai Kitchen

Outstanding Pad Thai lunch special at Charm Thai Kitchen in Rancho Bernardo!
