This spot is part of the reimagined Dr. Wilkinson’s Resort, which gained a following in the ‘50s for its mud baths and mineral pools. It’s a great place for lunch or an early dinner that feels a lot like being at a cookout at your best friend's place with the added benefit of being waited on as you chill by the bonfires and play cornhole. New Mexican dishes like the green chile stew and flat enchiladas are standouts, along with the grilled fish tacos with jicama slaw, and a weekend-only roasted green chile flatbread. And in case you forgot you’re in California, you’ll find a dip flight with herbed hemp hearts and harissa carrot hummus and a wellness drink menu with elixirs and house-blended medicinal teas. End every visit with a slice of their signature chile apple pie with cheddar crust and a red chili honey drizzle.
