Three other spots in Yuma deserve mention. The Crossing is the locals favorite American food venue. It is certainly a good alternative to chains like Red Lobster or Applebees. I have not eaten here enough to critique the entrees, but they do have an extremely varied menu, good buffalo wings, and superb clam chowder (go figure). Don-Dons, which is only open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, is the real thing when it comes to barbecue. Savory, wood smoked, real Southern Barbecue. Better than the barbecue Iused to buy from black churches fund-raising barbecues in Seaside, CA. Last, Chateau Basque features a multicourse feast, including fantastic pickled beets, superb soup, great blue cheese, and a salad and a zesty spicy stew and good bread and butter and we havent reached the main course yet. The restaurant is only open for dinner, prices start at 16 dollars, and there is no way to get smaller servings. The wine list is perfunctory, but adequate, I guess. If the entrees in general were as good as everything leading up to
them this would be a first rate restaurant.
