        The name / place you mention brings up a place in Goleta.

          Let's try again - City Wok in Palm Desert. A chain and off-season they had all sorts of half-price specials, even on the wine. It was pretty good. You are in a culinary wasteland so this is good enough.

      2. We ate at Sherman's Deli twice last month while in Palm Springs and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. Cheap, good eats.

              I almost ate there the other day. I didn't, not because of anything negative. It's pricier than the topic title, though.
