Wait...I lost my info...

Oh here it is...

GINO'S CAFE DELI
Offering authentic Italian Food
Dine In, Take Out & Catering!
73777 29 Palms Hwy
760-361-2420
(Inside of the Beacon Gas Station)

I'm NOT typing the whole menu. But it looks good and daily specials like my fav CALAMARI!!

Prepare yourself - it's pricey for this area. The owner is definitely an Italian though. :)

I probably cannot take little man, I would have to go for lunch by myself...or with a friend on a Friday ;) ;)

Yeah, I'm not paying expensive prices inside a gas station. 

kElJoY --- 10 years ago -

lol Dexter. It's all the way to the back and has always been a space for some sort of restaurant/take-out kinda place. Fish-A-Licious used to be there (they are on Base now).

Fish-A-Licious

????

Maybe I should clarify...the specials seemed expensive to me...the Calamari for example - was a special today at $13.00.

I mentioned to the owner that the Bistro only charged $9.99 for their delish Calamari and he just shrugged his shoulders. Which I understand. I'll get back to you after I try it.

The rest of the regular menu items seem fairly priced. A couple of the special of the day items involved seafood such as clams, mussels, Ahi Tuna, Wild Salmon...those are expensive items.

They have a food truck at Camp Wilson.

Not this Friday - I have a meal date in San Diego!

Sounds good but why in a gas station??? I hate that restaurants open in gas stations :(

In NC there was a Mc D's in gas station and it was always crowded so I never wnet. The parking lot was a nightmare with everyone trying to get gas and get Mc D's.

I LOVE italian so maybe I'd get it to go.

why in a gas station??

It has that kind of a space in the back with a restaurant area and a kitchen - I guess that is why. I'm guessing the rent is affordable compared to some of the other places in town.

I can see that reasoning. I just like a nice Italian place. But noone ever makes my fav cavatelli and broc. I only find it in my hometown pizzeria. I would KILL for some! I asked the guy that owns Rocky's and he knows what it is but doesn't make it. He's from NJ so I thought he would have served it but I was wrong. 

Erin --- 10 years ago -

There was a restaurant in Missouri that opened in an old gas station. It was a hole in the wall place but it was SO good.

They have a food truck at Camp Wilson.

Gotcha

Not this Friday - I have a meal date in San Diego!

and gotcha! That is ok because I am getting a root canal done this Friday morning. FUN! ;o)

The owner is also looking for a delivery driver in case anyone needs a job. He wants to be able to just call someone in if they have an order to deliver and not someone who hangs around with no deliveries to make. He said $2 a delivery and whatever tips you make. He wants someone with Base access because they get a lot of orders from the barracks apparently.

$2 a delivery and being at someone's beckon call...good luck with that. Not enough $$ for me. Might work for someone though. *shrugs shoulders* 

kElJoY --- 10 years ago -

cavatelli and broc

I'm not seeing that on the menu. Ask him about it if you go in.

I am getting a root canal done

Just the mention of it makes me shake in my boots...I'm still suffering the after effects of mine...it was so traumatic!!! Good luck. :( 

kElJoY --- 10 years ago -

I'm still suffering the after effects of mine

the emotional after effects is what I meant lol. The tooth is GREAT. Now. 

kElJoY --- 10 years ago -

This back and forth of I can edit and then I can't is REALLY getting on my nerves...grrrrrrr 

Plasticstars --- 10 years ago -

I heard it was good too but good luck trying to get a delivery. I told him my address which is literally up the road and he told me he didn't know where it was and that 'I just come pick up' lol. This has happened to many others. I still wanna go and try someday, a lot of people swear by this place to be really authentic. 

kElJoY --- 10 years ago -

Probably why they are looking for delivery drivers. :) 

Plasticstars --- 10 years ago -

lol ahh good to know! Probably why...I think the guy was by himself too that's why. I'll try again sometime hopefully they will have hired a driver by then.

Lots of views...any other REviews yet??

It's on my list to try.
