Cheap Eats In Palm Springs CA – The Locals Speak of their love for a good deal!
Who’s not looking for cheap eats when on vacation or, for that fact, if you are a newly transplanted local? The question was put to the members of my Facebook Group titled The Palm Springs Neighborhoods Group then we asked over at and Palm Springs Eating And Living.
The people spoke and this is their list a fave places to get good food on a budget! And we’re not talking just burgers and fries. This is real food, some from our best restaurants, at happy hour prices or regular prices. Some of our friendly cool hole-in-the wall treasures. All great food.
All of these places can be found by using Google with the name of the restaurant and the city indicated.
The list is long and not alphabetized but is well worthwhile to make note of it. Bookmark this page.
If you have questions, please ask in the comments section below or call us at 760-660-0010 for more information on any of these great places. Or if looking for things to do? I can help you there as well.
