Caveat - This is 5 stars relative to the area - I would not give this 5 stars if it were in LA, but since it's in the middle of the desert and the nearest competition is 45 minutes away (at least), it gets 5...More

We were staying at the "resort" and, although we had our own food, decided to eat at the restaurant. The meal was tasty, good value and the service was excellent. Definitely the best part of this stop.

We only stayed and had drinks and chips. We are vegan so it's tricky for us to eat. The menu did have items which we could take out dairy etc. and make vegan, so we'd be ok to stay a few days and eat here....More

Loved this eatery next to the Panamint Spring motel - The girl was awesome and agreed to serve us without quibble despite us arriving 5 min before closing (having shot across the desert to make it there on time for check-in). Amazing burger. Yum.

The only restaurant for miles, its offerings are basic (sandwiches, salads, burgers, beer) but tasty, and the friendly staff are helpful with directions and advice.

My son and I managed to grab lunch at all of the Death Valley resorts. Panamint Springs was by far the best. We stopped in at the Panamint Springs for lunch after hiking Darwin Falls. They gouge you for gas... and they couldn’t make milkshakes...More

Stopped for lunch while enjoying Death Valley National Park. Food and service were excellent. It was too cold for us to sit outside but the views were very nice.
