My son and I ate here for breakfast our last day in the desert. The food was not awesome and just sat like a brick in my stomach all day! The service was beyond slow. I wouldn't return to this restaurant were we to return to the dessert.

We didn't eat here, though it looked clean and inviting. We did order pizza to go, which was the best food we had in Borrego Springs!

Place is cute and the service was great! We were in Borrego Springs for the weekend and found it can be a challenge to find good places to eat. We arrived for breakfast and found a line was already forming. The wait wasn't bad, but the restaurant was full. Food took a while to arrive. Staff was very attentive and... More

A friend and I ate at Kendall's on Wednesday 3/29/17. It was my first time there and my friend had been several times before. He recommended the Buffalo Burger to me. I got the Buffalo Melt on Rye with Sweet Potato Fries and a side of Potato Salad. It was excellent, the burger was medium well, moist, lean and delicious,... More

My family and I visited Kendall's during the super bloom, so the restaurant was packed! Service was very prompt and attentive throughout our meal even though the wait staff was super busy running back and forth serving customers. We had an excellent breakfast here, very tasty traditional American fare. We had pancakes, sausages, bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy. Large portion... More

We ate a late breakfast here on Sat. morning. We only waited about 10 minutes for a table and had the best meal of our stay in Borrego Springs. I ordered the do-it yourself omelet with 4 ingredients. My husband and I agreed it was the best omelet we had ever had!! The service was great, too.

We were hungry after spending the day at the nearby state park, so we stopped in. There is a nice patio dining area as well as indoor seating. You order and pay at the front, and the staff brings your food. We tried two types of pizza, as well as some salads. The pizza is thin crust and different than... More

Very pleasant atmosphere, clean and well lit, staff was friendly and helpful, decor was pink. Food was plentiful and good but the menu was uninspired.

Went here during the wildflower "super bloom". We got to Borrego early & checked out an art fair. One of the vendors suggested Kendall's for breakfast. It's tucked away in "the mall", a very small shopping plaza. We had a 15-20 minute wait for a table. It was very busy & short staffed the day we went. The 1-2 waitress... More

Very good food and staff able to handle the crowds. We came back, mainly for great hash browns! Ate breakfast here twice; eggs, omelettes, eggs benedict, etc.
