53688 Pioneertown Rd., Pioneertown, CA 92268, United States

Located off the beaten path in Yucca Valley, this historic “canteen” was first built in the 1940’s as part of Pioneertown, an elaborate movie set for some of Hollywood’s most famous Westerns. Today, the restaurant draws an eclectic crowd with its Old West theme, Santa Maria—style barbecue, and free live music (past performers range from Robert Plant to Sonic Youth). The exposed-brick dining room is decorated with colorful Christmas lights and old band flyers, while the outdoor patio contains picnic tables and a mesquite-burning grill, where the staff prepares house specialties like the baby back ribs with homemade barbecue sauce.
