Ok, chowhounders, looks like next Sunday's destination will be hiking in Anza Borrego Desert State Park. We'll be travelling from Carlsbad to the Borrego Springs area and back - weather permitting. Need lunch and dinner recommendations not too far off of f the beaten path from CA-76/CA-79/CR-S2/CR-S22. Any ideas??? I've dug up some postings on this board but many of them are not recent and some of them have mixed reviews. Wondering if any of you have been to Anza Borrego recently to observe the spring flowers blooming and maybe you have some chow-worthy places to share? We are open to any kind of food as long as it is GOOD! I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
