Food and service were good but the place does need a good deep cleaning even though we see them wiping tables a lot the windows and doors are dirty also lots of dust on wood seals and in between bar and restaurant where you sit.

Very nice place to eat in Yucca Valley. Can get very busy at times, but the service is good and the food is excellent. Highly recommended if you’re in the area and want a quick meal.

Avoid this place. Staff goofing off, dry cold ribs, and dirty. Restrooms and tables. Couldn’t imagine what the kitchen looks like. Better bbq place right down the street

Having visited a lot of Applebee’s restaurants around Florida on our travels we hunted this one down. The food was as usual excellent however the duty manager decided that rather than ensuring his staff were engaged in service he should spend 15 minutes talking very...loudly to them about Games of Thrones and other TV programmes. I am sure this isn’t the work ethic of most of the people in the restaurant as others worked around him. His reason was that he likes to keep it a bit “light.” Leading by example he definitely wasn’t.....More
