Pics/review?

I should have taken pics - especially of the way it was so meticulously packaged. As an example, I ordered a burger and it came with a huge burger plus sauteed onions in an aluminum tin. Then there was a warm sliced bun - individually wrapped in its own plastic. There was another container with sliced pickles and tomatoes. Two smaller containers with ketchup and mayo. And a tupperware with a fresh salad (dressing on the side.)

That was just my meal - my wife had a similar array of items with hers.

The Burger was excellent and I would highly recommend. The owner mentioned that the eventual goal is to open a sit-down place and I hope he does because even one kosher rest. in the area would make vacationing there much more enjoyable and relaxing.

Bring from LA. I wouldn't call it a schlep if you're landing in LAX, only if you were flying straight to PSP.

True, Ralphs has lots of kosher things, however LA has more. It just depends on what you're ok with or if you want something specific that you can only get in LA.

There are 5+ Hilton hotels in the Palm Springs area all going for the same 30,000 a night. Any ones that stand out or any to avoid?

Why is Airbnb not working? Just look for things near Chabad.
