My daughter and I ate here after driving from Malibu and her freshman year at Pepperdine. We enjoyed the steak, tableside prepared salads and the friendly staff. It made me happy eat a nice meal before driving another 200 miles that night.

I had a stop-over in Barstow and this restaurant was recommended. I was travelling solo and was happy to find something that wasn't fast food. After a 6-hour drive I had a very good meal, great service, in a relaxing atmosphere.

Since our opening in the 1950's the Idle Spurs Steakhouse has established a reputation for excellent food, friendly service, and a unique dining atmosphere. We remain one of the most popular restaurants in the High Desert Region of Southern California with a multitude of visitors stopping on their travels between Las Vegas and Los Angeles or on Historic Route 66. Authentic western antiques and a beautiful indoor garden will truly create a memorable meal. Idle Spurs has refreshing beers on tap, wine by the glass or bottle and a full bar if you would prefer to relax in our lounge. Please join us for your next special meal!
