Lunch in Parker then off to The Bar

This morning 'Jeepers' commented about The Desert Bar, it was something I had seen and wanted to check out but I honestly didn't realize it was so close... Once we were sorted, off we went. I didn't tell Brad where we were going, only that 'It'll be great, you will see!!!"

And we made a video, mostly for his brother but also for you. It is uploading to YouTube as I type this and I will embed it below.

We stopped in Parker for what we hoped would be breakfast and I searched Yelp! as I said I would do more often... Bigfoot Bulldogs Diner... Sounds intriguing, let's go!

Well, let me tell you.... THIS place puts all others to shame. The service here was phenomenal, friendly and the atmosphere was like being at a friends for dinner. The breakfast as it turns out stops at 11am so we ordered burgers. Calling them burgers is like an insult to a cow. They were so juicy - not drip all over you juicy but just perfectly juicy, the fries are cut in-house and the ranch dressing is the best I think I've ever had. And that's saying something. Definitely the best meal we've had since.... we'll probably Nk'mip Resort in Osoyoos, BC. Other than my cooking, of course - right dear?!!

So impressed with this little diner which has only been open since June 1st in Parker. The guy is a former construction worker who obviously appreciates good food and good service because it was immaculate. Everything. We will be stopping there every time we are in Parker, I can guarantee that.

A simple burger? Really?!

Brad was hoping I wouldn't be able to finish mine, he wasn't so lucky!

Absolutely the best burger going!

The owner gave us a complimentary sample of their 'Chicken Fried Steak' 

Great place to eat, any time of the day/night.

5 Stars to Bigfoot Bulldogs Diner. Named after the owner's dog. I missed the details of the naming as he was telling Brad and I didn't catch the whole of it. Obviously they are still getting all the details worked out like menu's etc. but the ordering is done by computer at the table. Nice touch.

After Bulldogs we went further north to The Desert Bar. What a place that was! Really fantastic the way he (Ken I believe the owner's name is) has set it up. All built apparently from what I read from donated stuff. Amazing. Completely runs on Solar as you'd expect in the middle of nowhere Arizona and they have running water too.

Great little bar in the middle of nowhere Arizona

Yes, they serve food as well.

Still got it, don't know what it is... but I still got it ;)

The Desert Bar is only open Saturday and Sunday October to April from Noon to 6pm. Quite the wild ride getting there but well worth it, especially for a group. They have special holiday hours also so check the link above for those details.

Brad was pleasantly surprised by this outing, he thought I was taking him into the boonies to go Geocaching or something. The added bonus was he got to go Jeeping to get there, and I went too.

We had an absolutely phenomenal day today! Really feeling exhausted but rejuvenated at the same time. Shall sleep like babes in arms tonight!

Below is the video we made of our day:
