With three Coachella Valley locations, Maxcy’s has you covered for breakfast, lunch and dinner for quick, convenient comfort food.

It’s the kind of place that you can count on for tasty comfort food, reminiscent of a neighborhood diner or corner coffee shop. Maxcy’s Grill has two locations in Indio, and one in La Quinta. Their first location in Indio, in the Stater Brothers shopping center off of Madison and Hwy 111, has been there for almost three decades.

The other day, while driving around trying to find a place for a late lunch, my boyfriend and I found ourselves at the door of Maxcy’s in La Quinta. We were looking for a place for a quick bite, but at the strange hour of 2pm, found it a challenge to find somewhere that was still serving lunch. Maxcy’s fit the bill, as they serve up most of their menu all day, lunch and breakfast items were available (dinner is only available for dinner hours) for us to choose from.


My favorite at Maxcy’s has to be their Chili Cheese Omelet, and I order it every time I go there, no matter what time of day it is. Their chili is simply fantastic, with almost a mole texture and taste….some of the best chili I’ve had. The chili is lovingly wrapped in in a crepe like egg omelet, and of course just enough cheese to keep it all adhered together. Some well-done hash browns completes my plate, and I am happy. Another fave of mine is their pancakes, they are light, yet satisfying. I was able to substitute one pancake in lieu of toast. Perfect!

As my boyfriend was craving a sandwich, he went for a classic Club Sandwich. It was a huge portion, and was only $9. That’s another bonus at Maxcy’s, their prices are very reasonable. His sandwich was perfectly portioned with turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato, on sourdough bread (other breads are offered), and he opted for onion rings instead of fries. We were both happy with our meals, my breakfast dish and his lunch. Mission accomplished for a satisfying mid-day meal.

Maxcy’s offers all kinds of other menu items, from burritos, to salads, sandwiches, dinner specialties including steak, and a plethora of breakfast goodies. They even offer homemade Menudo on the weekends as well as Mimosas too (beer and wine are regularly available).

It’s reassuring to have a local eatery that seems to be always there waiting for you, inviting you in with open arms for quick, and convenient comfort food. Maxcy’s fulfills that need with consistently good food, pleasant service and equally pleasant prices. 

Maxcy’s Grill in La Quinta is located at 79-305 Hwy 111- 760-564-0613
