Big Burgers at Big Horn Bar & Grill

IMG_8971Our first night in Borrego Springs Katie and I arrived earlier than we had expected, but still late enough for the residence of Borrego Springs to have called it a night. We were hungry so we yelped a nearby restaurant, Big Horn Bar & Grill, which is inside the Palm Canyon Hotel and RV Resort. It had 4.5 stars and was one of the few places still open at 7pm, so we decided to give it a try.

When we walked in we could see a small store to the left and the dinning room ahead. It was completely empty except for 2 guys at a table eating dinner and the workers milling around. We sat at a high top and quickly read through the menu. Our waitress stopped by and took our order, nachos and burgers. We debated getting a drink or two since the prices were so cheap, but decided not to.

A few minutes later our food arrived. The nachos was the first thing we dove into. They had gooey cheese, sour cream, jalapeños, green onions, and chicken. It was amazing. Next I ate my Western Burger with onion rings, bacon, and BBQ sauce and sweet potato fries with maple syrup on them. Katie had her Jalapeño Burger and their regular seasoned fries. Both meals were so surprisingly delicious that there was none leftover.

We left Big Horn Bar & Grill stuffed to the max and extremely happy we had stopped. Next time we are in Borrego Springs we will be going back. Fair prices and big portions on awesome tasting food is always something we welcome.

A Burrito for Two at Las Fuentes

IMG_8971My friend and I were in the mood for mexican food so we decided to try Las Fuentes in Reseda. Las Fuentes has been in business since 1982 and currently has 4 stars on yelp. We headed over, parked the car, and walked in the door. It wasn’t exactly what I expected at first sight. I thought it was going to be a restaurant where you sat down, they took your order and then served you, but like a lot of restaurants in Los Angeles, it is an order at the counter, find yourself a seat and bring your own food and condiments to your table kind of place.

The place looks super authentic inside and out though with mexican paintings on the wall and statues all around. I don’t think they could add more decorations if they tried. And the menu has everything a mexican restaurant should have. Burritos, tacos, nachos, and quesadillas. You name it, they have it.

I was in the mood for a burrito and after seeing the pictures on yelp I couldn’t convince myself to try anything else except a chicken burrito and some amazing chicken nachos. Katie got the chicken tacos and was set to help me eat some of the nachos.

The food was delicious. Everything I tried was perfectly cooked. And the portions are enough to last you several meals, just like most mexican places. I will definitely be back for more and to find out the one thing I forgot to check while I was there, leaving me wondering, do they have chicken asada fries?
