As fantastic as Pappy and Harriet’s is, it’s also a 40-minute drive from the town of Joshua Tree, and tonight you’re in the mood to keep it local. Head to Joshua Tree Saloon. As the name suggests, this restaurant/bar has a kitschy Old West aesthetic, and after three beers and a whiskey shot, you’re completely fine with it. The menu is full of burgers, sandwiches and big plates of meat, and while nothing will blow you away, it’s what you need after a long day of taking photos of big rocks. There’s live music most nights and a boozy brunch on Sundays.
