IMPORTANT QUESTION: What’s the best ‘hidden gem’ in the Coachella Valley?

(Google Maps)

The Important Question is a recurring thing we do on Fridays here at Cactus Hugs to get input on food, places, and things in the Coachella Valley from the people who know it best: you!  Brought to you by Riviera Palm Springs

The Greater Palm Springs area is home to a lot of good eateries.  Some we hear about.  Others, not so much.

What is an under-the-radar joint in the Coachella Valley that you really like?  Now I know, you might not want to talk about your favorite hidden gem, for fear of it becoming packed with snowbirds in January and you having to wait two hours to get in.  But, fear not.  The snowbirds are busy screwing up the roads of small Washington towns and Canadian villages, so this will just be between us locals still here (and sweating).

Let’s discuss in the comments and bonus points will be awarded to those who not only name a really good hidden-gem, but also back it up with why and maybe some menu suggestions.
