“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. ”
