Driving by Wheel Inn on I-10, it's really easy to miss. If you are heading east, you may be dazzled by the Morongo Casino and the Outlet Mall. By the time you recover, you wonder if those dinosaurs were just your imagination. With the Burger King and the (now closed) Spanky's BBQ, both the dinosaurs are harder to see, and the Wheel Inn just doesn't stand out. For those who remember, "Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure" had a scene here (with a lady named "Large Marge").
Once you stop here, you'll be filled with the large portions of comfort food. Kitschy decor, and looks straight out of the mid 20th century. What Ruby's tries to be, this place IS. OK, Ruby's shakes are better. But this place is the real deal. Service is great, and if you have kids, you can go visit the dinosaurs out back. Watch them gobble their food to get a shot at those dinos.
