King’s Highway is our desert diner, and celebrates the ineffable, bohemian spirit of the wide open West. Our seasonal menu is sourced from independent farmers spread across the Coachella Valley and Southern California. We reinvented an old Denny’s restaurant to celebrate its retro style and add fresh, modern updates. During renovations we unearthed a terrazzo floor, sandblasted the flagstone walls and re-covered the booths in saddle leather. We’re open all day, every day. The coffee’s hot and the beer is cold. Our popular dishes include ricotta pancakes, chopped salad and short rib ragu.

**Please note that King's Highway operates on a "first come first served" basis between 7 am & 5 pm except for parties of 10 or more

    One star. Would not recommend. Service was slow and unfriendly. Food: a mess of deep fried, fatty, artery clogging, tasteless crap. I’m trying to be nice about the experience, but really the food is that bad. Negative 10 out of 10 and would not recommend.

    We love Bella and Monday night Bingo! Our server, Hallie was wonderful too! My mom likes that she recognized the building as it could be an old Sambos restaurant. Idk what that is but it made her happy. It was my Moms first drag Queen experience and it was perfect and family friendly. We didn’t get a bingo but felt like we won as everyone around us was winning and it was really good vibes! Family friendly and vintag-y hipster cool. Also, great cocktails and wine list! Even serves mock tails and slushies! Work!

    Excellent food and cocktails with a solid menu that caters to many different dietary needs. It’s such a cozy and cool place at the same time. Only thing I really don’t like is that the larger tables have seats with no backs…no one ever wants that, it’s too uncomfortable. I would recommend requesting a booth instead. But other than that, such a great place and will be back again!

    Mains came minutes after we got our starters. They died under the heat lamps while we finished our starters and we had to ask for the kitchen to remake one of them. The restaurant was not busy but we had to flag down our server more than once. Not overly warm or apologetic. And food was under seasoned to boot. Big disappointment.

    Three generations of our family enjoyed a delicious dinner at King’s Highway. The menu was interesting and varied, with light meals and dinner entrees available. The children very much enjoyed their chicken tenders and fries on the kids menu. I had an excellent, interesting arugula salad with wonderful ingredients and delicious and fresh grilled chicken. Our server was very attentive and pleasant.

    This is our second disappointing experience at King’s Highway. We waited an hour for our food and once received, one entree was cold, one was overdone and three others were ok temperature wise, but not tasty. The fish had no flavor, the fries were soggy, some sort of corn mash side that showed up was unidentifiable. This doesn’t play well for the Ace, as the plates seed pricey and a random 3% surcharge is added to every bill, even though we weren’t staying there. The noise level was out of control. It was drag bingo night, which is fine, but there was only one speaker for the whole room which we were seated in front of. This made it impossible to hear one another. As locals, we won’t be adding this to our recommendations list :(

    I didn't realize that I was booking for Monday Night Bingo with Bella Da Ball. She was a great entertainer and made our dinner fun and fabulous - on top of tasty. My burger was juicy and fresh with fries done just right. My husband had the pork loin - very good. One small demerit, we ordered the beet salad to share (also very tasty) which was served up at the same time as our main dishes. Admittedly, we did not tell our server we wanted the salad first first but, neither did she ask if we wanted it held until our main dishes came out. In this case, I'm going to say she was at fault but, all in all, it was a good evening.

    Tourist trap. I live here, tried it, was very expensive for the food. They charge you a 3% surcharge in addition to the bill. I had the chicken fried sandwich $21.00. Was a thin chicken cutlet about 2 bites on each half of sandwich. Mostly bread, with gobs of mayo and iceberg lettuce. Bread was stale. My salad again was some kind of goopy mayo dressing in again iceberg lettuce, not cut properly and one cherry tomato. My friend had the Mushroom Ravioli $28 - was NOT homemade. I’m a cook and could tell it came from a frozen package. He said it was good just not $28 good. I had a Diet Coke $3.00 in a can - no refills. Battered onion rings were very good $18 (but not enough for 2 people). Service was good when they finally came to our table almost 20 minutes later. Total bill with drinks and tip and surcharge $95.00 for 2 people. My suggestion- go to 1501 Gastropub- food and ambiance great and prices are better. Also there were big holes in the seats of the booth we were sitting in. Won’t be coming back.

    Fun night playing bingo and having dinner at the Ace Hotel. Surprisingly good salads for a former HoJo. And Bingo was a blast, although no winners at our table. Don’t be dissuaded by the $30 per person required to play bingo - you’ll easily spend that on a meal and a drink.

    Our server was attentive, friendly and kind to our two kids, but sadly, the food was terrible… almost inedible. The drinks were not great either. Terribly disappointing which is too bad because the space was cute and I usually rely heavily on recommendations from Eater… this one was WAY off.

    Diners are always comforting and this was definitely next level in value and luxury. They're menu is simple but food is great. Loved the photobooth in the lobby area!

    We had a GREAT TIME! The hostess was a lot of fun and engaging. The service was really good and we all loved our meals (pork tenderloin, fried chicken and Vodka penne). Our group won one of the games of bingo. The food is upscale diner. If you like mid-century the diner has preserved all that and they have a hotel on site that seems quite cool.
