Perhaps you didn’t come to Joshua Tree thinking you’d be indulging in Indian takeout, but after three days of hemp smoothies, you’re ready for something a bit more substantial. Head to Sam’s. This family-run spot has an extremely solid menu filled with dishes ranging from chicken tikka masala and spicy aloo gobhi to shrimp saag. As the name suggests, there is also pizza served here, and while we applaud Sam’s entrepreneurial prowess, we recommend sticking mostly to the Indian side of the menu. Be sure to call in your order early - wait times can get intense.

Pappy and Harriet’s was originally built as a movie set, but no trip to Joshua Tree is complete without a night at this restaurant/saloon/music venue.

La Copine is a daytime cafe in Yucca Valley, and is worth the drive from Joshua Tree for a late lunch.
