Whether or not you're on a strict travel budget, you can probably appreciate getting the most out of your travel dollars, especially when it comes to dining experiences. The best restaurants know that true value comes from offering flavorful dishes at palatable price points – without sacrificing quality in the name of lower prices. Luckily for those who are desert bound, Palm Springs has plenty of value-driven restaurants offering great dining experiences without exorbitant price tags.
Two local Palm Springs restaurants known for their great value are Acqua Pazza and LULU California Bistro, sister restaurants that each boast happy hours that run from morning to late evening. These happy hour menus aren't limited to the typical small bar plates, either. Both restaurants have dozens of dishes with selections like Margherita pizza, lobster quesadillas and Kobe beef burgers. The happy hour menu also includes a range of desserts for less than $5 and drink specials of up to 50% off.
Another great value-driven restaurant is Wolfgang Puck Pizza Bar in Palm Desert. The price point is shockingly low for a restaurant that sources only sustainable ingredients, makes everything in-house and boasts a celebrity chef name, too. Salads, pizzas and pastas all come in at less than $20 a plate, and afternoon happy hour specials only add to the value.
