The Palms is 15 miles east of town, but feels like the end of nowhere. Our favorite desert haunt, where you can take time out to play a round of pool, order Pabst on tap, and buy used cowboy boots (opens at 3 PM).
Directions: From Hwy 62 head north on Adobe Rd in 29 Palms. Turn RIGHT on Amboy Rd and continue about 13 miles. 83131 Amboy Rd, Wonder Valley 92277.
