La Quinta - Dinner Recommendations

I am headed to the La Quinta Resort for a weekend golf trip with my buddy. Are there any awesome steakhouses that are very close to the resort? If not, then are there any other restaurants near the resort that are awesome (any cuisine)?
We're, ideally, looking for a place that would be a short drive from the resort - so we can drink a fair bit of wine. No uber-expensive restaurants (i.e. more than $300 total). Atmosphere isn't atop our list of priorities. We're just looking for a tasty meal.

  1. We love the La Quinta Resort, so much so, we recently got a getaway place very close.

    Very close to the resort is the CLIFF HOUSE. It is on 111 and the resort might even have a shuttle. They used to be on the pricier side, but due to the recent times, they are still offering great food and service, but have slashed their prices and have a great prefixe dinner. They also have a great bar menu.

    Low key and low budget, the Beer Hunter has about 100 TV's and every sporting event that is being broadcast will be on.

      Certainly you do not mean La Quitna in Galt, CA, which happens to be one of the most unpalatable Mexican restaurants I have ever been to in California.

        This new feature is not working very well. La Quinta is a city in the Greater Palm Springs area. I just saw how I could remove it.
