  1. The Chowhound Team moved this to the California board where chowpoints east of San Bernadino (roughly) are discussed.

    For chow in Arizona, please post to the Southwest board, here:

    1. There's almost nothing past Palm Springs/Palm Desert which is about an hour and a half from LA.

      Search for suggestions in Palm Springs (you don't say if you want lunch or dinner).

      1. Fast food abounds in Blythe, so it's tough to recommend stopping there. I'm sure there are local gems to be found there, but I don't know where they are. We generally pack sandwiches and water, and stop only for gas until we hit Phoenix.

          Although some time has passed, I once worked for 21 days in Blythe. The best grub in town was Popeye's. After a few weeks in civilization I had to return for 18 more days in Culinary Hell. I hope to never return!
