Chow places in La Quinta, Indian Wells, Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage ?
Roys is always a hit.
Vickys of Scottsdale would be fun too. They have a great piano room off of the bar with giant couches that you can melt into.
The Beer Hunter is extremely fun, they have more TV's then a circuit city. They use an ice element to keep your pitchers of beer cold. It is a great place to watch a game. But beware, they have a sign that reads, becareful, the floor might be slippery from spilt beer. You can also take kids there.
We also like the CLIFF HOUSE. They have a great happy hour in the bar, and specials through out the week in the resteraunt. Call about the specials, you will be suprised at the value. High end place and mid level prices!!!!
