Restaurants in Palm Springs, CA

Palm Springs being a cosmopolitan place that attracts people and cultures from everywhere, there is no common denominator among the restaurants Roadfood recommends. No culinary tour would be complete without a mile-high sandwich and rugelach at Sherman’s Deli, stupendously good Guadalajara-accented Mexican food at Felipe’s, a baroque milk shake or malt from Great Shakes, and a top-dollar prime steak at LG’s. Hot dog lovers need to know about Frankinbun, a hole in the wall that elevates weenies and more worldly sausages to gourmet status and serves them with four-star French fries. For a square meal at a fair price, locals go to John’s Restaurant, a vintage California coffee shop that serves breakfast all day. Its specialty: cinnamon roll French toast.
