Indio’s TKB Bakery & Deli named ‘5th best place to eat in the U.S.’


A popular Indio bakery and deli was named the 5th best place to eat in the United States for 2015 by Yelp.

TKB Bakery & Deli made the list for the second year in a row (they were #4 in 2014).

TKB’s menu consists of plenty of cold and hot sandwiches including the “Kyra Banks” (Chicken Salad, Black Olives, and Chipotle), “The Hangover” (Turkey, Salami, Bacon and Avocado with Chipotle Sauce), and “The Trump” (Turkey, Salami, Bacon, Avocado, Pepperjack Cheese, Potato Chips, Chipotlé Sauce and Everything On Foccacia).


Here is how Yelp determines the list:

Yelp’s list of Top 100 Places to Eat in the US for 2016 honors businesses that rank so highly in the Yelp community’s opinion that they have earned the status of “must try within this lifetime.” From fancy to casual, long time favorite to new up-and-comer, barbecue to udon, this list runs the gamut of gastronomical experiences. And that’s the way we like it; a list as quirky and interesting and unique as the Yelp Community itself. Sometimes you want a white tablecloth experience, and sometimes a sandwich on the run hits the spot.

TKB Bakery & Deli is located at 44911 Golf Center Parkway in Indio and is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
