Love this place! Was told their name is changing so please be aware. Did not ask when but was told it will be called The Giggling Cactus! As long as the food or service doesn't change then they can call it whatever they want. We had breakfast, my husband had the big meat omelette and I had the mohave Benedict.... More

Thought we'd try Juicy's on this trip through Needles. We both had the Baja Bacon Burger and were not disappointed. Wonderful and deserving of bring called juicy. The regular seasoned fries were ok, but we'll try another of the side selections next time. Our server was an absolute joy!

I had a nice breakfast here that tasted like home cooking and the service was very friendly as well. This is a locally owned place and it's conveniently located right next to the Best Western Hotel and in fact is the provider for their breakfasts. Good food and reasonably priced.

We pulled off the highway and stumbled upon this little gem. Ordered the freshest wraps I've tasted in s while. The kids loved them. My husband ordered a burger which was very generous and very tasty. Service was excellent, food served fast. The restrooms were really clean. A great find!

Less than two hours and another state south of Vegas you'll find this joint in the huge truck stop off Hwy 40 that has sucked all the life out of downtown Needles on Rte 66. The dated decor of this Formica haven belies the folksiness of the wait staff and the down home comfort of the food. Like all of... More

We arrived in Needles around 7pm the night before Thanksgiving and needed a place for dinner. Juicy's was recommended to us by the front desk person at our motel as a place that would possibly still be open and it was! So, for that, I give thanks to Juicy's. The hostess who seated us and the server who waited on... More
