Run down is doing it justice. The place is dingy, needs repair and not too expertly staffed. Menu is unimaginative and depends on what they have on hand, which depends on how efficient their staff is (see earlier). If you use the west entrance to...More

Although Panamint Springs is a more remote destination that the other restaurants in Death Valley, it is well worth the trip! We enjoyed delicious burgers and fries as well as very friendly and accommodating service!

If you’re in the middle of nowhere and looking for something cold to drink or have a sandwich you have found the right place at Panamint Springs. We needed a bag of ice in a Ziploc and there were very accommodating. Very friendly staff.

Caveat - This is 5 stars relative to the area - I would not give this 5 stars if it were in LA, but since it's in the middle of the desert and the nearest competition is 45 minutes away (at least), it gets 5...More
