On a return trip to Arizona from California and Palm Desert appeared on the radar around noon. We generally exit at Monterey Avenue and grab something from the numerous choices that exist there after we gas up at Costco. We had plenty of fuel on board so decided to go a little further east (Indio to be specific) and try... More

Absulutely the best Bar in Town! Ask for the Wendy! Food needs a little attention to regain this jewel of the desert's crown, Much like the sign outside... need I say more.

When you can practically cut your prime rib with a fork, you know it is done right. Great Service, reasonable prices. This place has become a tradition when we come to Palm Desert from San Diego..

We ate at Cactus Jack's while passing through Indio, CA. The food was good enough, although I thought I was ordering pork ribs and got beef ribs because of a poorly written specials sign. The drinks were great and really fast out of the bar.

Cactus Jacks offers great food at a reasonable cost and the Indio location is an unknown gem to the seasonal crowds. Menu selection has something for everyone. Service was outstanding.
