In a place as remote as Joshua Tree, there aren’t a ton of new restaurant openings on a yearly basis, but one exception to that rule is The Dez. This all-day eatery opened in late 2020 and gave the downtown area another excellent post-hike refuel option. The small counter-service space is takeaway only at the moment, but there’s a large daily-changing menu that’s sure to appease every dietary restriction in your group. We recommend going for either a fresh-made sandwich (if the pesto BLT is on the menu, get it) or one of their pre-made lunch boxes to enjoy on the hammock back at your rental.
