Supermarket

“This our fav grocery store and close by with a Starbucks! CVS next door and several restaurants in strip mall. Nice compact market with good produce, nice wine selection, all new cases for dairy and the store is easy to navigate. Staff, when you find someone, is always friendly and helpful but as I said this place is smokin busy! Nice deli too with Boars head meats (they make great sandwiches for cheap) and cheeses, good sushi for a grocery store and a big salad bar. ”

American Restaurant

“Great place close to PGA West. If you are or are not a golfer you would enjoy this restaurant. It has so much memorabilia from Arnold's days on the golf course. The food is great with something for everyone, outdoor dining is wonderful. The bar area is generally busy as well as the restaurants. It's best to make reservations while we are in season.”

Bar

“This is a MUST while in La Quinta. It is located on the Polo Grounds hidden in the back. Cater's to the local crowd, but when everyone is in town for the season it tends to get busy. They have an eclectic menu, something for everyone and the ribs are fall off the bone excellent. Fun bar area with saddles for seats, rustic environment catering to the Polo Scene. They have a large outdoor patio with beautiful ambience, up lit palm tree's, fire pit's and live entertainment. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you go during the day visit the Rose Garden just out the front door. ”
