    For the best mexican in Palm Springs it's rio azul. For great music and tasty fare it's the purple room. Sorry, can't recommend the blue coyote. They've lost that magic. And stay clear of the palm canyon road house. If you want a biker experience your better off to hang out at the local hells angels club house. They will treat you. Better and you'll have more fun.
