Greatly attentive waitress from Kansas, nice white wine, I had skewered shrimp kebab and barbecue style butterfly chicken.
This is a chain although the contact details below are Yuma franchise.
The crazy thing in here is being fed monkey nuts continually before and during dinner - you throw the shells on the floor and they are pulverized into the carpet!
Favorite Dish: My wife asked the waitress fro some of their little bread rolls (of all things!) to take away - pity they didn't really keep for breakfast though!

Brownie's is a small, diner-like place near central Yuma that is a favorite with the locals, especially for a weekend breakfast.
It's cheap too, and you can usually get out of there for under $5/person for breakfast.
The food is about level with IHOP (which has a location near the interstate), but Brownie's is just more friendly and more "real" than any chain place. This is where you'll get a true sense of Yuma: hordes of quiet, gray-haired retirees and large Mexican families seated in the crowded tables, booths and up against the counter. You can read the paper and maybe even strike up a conversation about the weather, water rights, or immigration (although politics is something that should stepped into lightly, especially since this is such a conservative part of the state).
Favorite Dish: I normally get one of the breakfast specials (eggs, sausage, toast, etc) which is about IHOP level, but they have these strawberry pancacke sticks that are pretty delicious.
Yuma is growing up...many new places and restaurants have come to the area.
Favorite Dish: I had the Fried Mahi Mahi Platter (mini) which is fish filet fried to golden brown (served with tartar sauce) with 1 scoop of rice and 1 scoop of macaroni salad.
Mi Rancho is a good Tex-Mex restaurant that is in central Yuma.
The decor is nice and the staff is attentive and very courteous. It is a sit-down place, they offer cervezas mexicanas y cervezas norte americanas.
Favorite Dish: I had a combo plate with a relleno, beef tostada and bean burro with salsa verde. All were very good and fairly spicy. I didn't have to reach for extra chipotle or habenjero salsa. Believe me, me encanto mi comidas Mexicanas muy calor! I find most Tex-Mex restaurantes en el Norte very mucho lacking in heat!
Their burros and other dishes looked very appetizing as well. I would say this is a good place to take a date or someone who wants fairly authentic Mexican food. This place seems to be closer than most.
This is a very good family restaurant with generous portions and reasonable prices for this area. This is a good place to go with a family and if you are on a budget. There is a children's menu and they have specials every day for everyone on selected items, i.e.: Tuesday and Friday is AYCE fish complete dinner $8 USD. Includes soup or salad, fries and cole slaw.
We arrived about 8 pm that Friday, and it was still crowded, rather than wait for a table, we sat at the counter, as almost no one was sitting there. Service was swift and friendly, even tho the crowd was still large and the place closed at 9 pm. (Many restaurants in Yuma are not open very late-even on weekends, make a note of this night owls!)
I thought we were well taken care of and the food was very good. I would recommend this place for a casual place to eat by early evening.
Favorite Dish: I tried the AYCE fish on Friday that we ate there. The fish had a nice crunchy, chicken fried steak-sytle coating. I was given three big pieces of whitefish that I could barely finish, let alone order any more! With the fish came a large order of fries and cole slaw, I also could have gotten soup or salad with the meal, but they ran out of soup, so I asked for, and received, a double order of slaw, which was very good.
My son had a club sandwich, which was quite large and well stacked with turkey, bacon, cheese and ham. It also came with fries and a salad. He said it was very good.
The menu also claimed to have ribs, chicken fried steak and other southern specialties, like grits for breakfast. I didn't eat there again this trip, but will probably do so if I have the opportunity to go to Yuma again as I was well pleased with the food and service and am curious as to what their other dishes are like.
Texas Roadhouse is a place the whole family can enjoy great food, in a fun-filled, lively atmosphere at an affordable price...the freshest Hand-Cut Steaks, Award Winning Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs, Homemade Side Dishes and delicious Fresh-Baked Bread.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the 10 oz. Prime Rib (which came with a Caesar Salad, green beans and fresh baked bread).
Down home cooking in an old Denny's Restaurant. It's an institution here in Yuma and you must try it. The service is very good and I guarantee you will not go home hungry!
Favorite Dish: For lunch try the Tarheel Sandwich (pulled bbq pork topped with cole slaw on a huge bun with french fries, the Rib Tip Platter (slow roasted/smoked rib tips, fries and cole slaw) or Bubba's BBQ Salad (slow roasted pulled pork, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, onions, cucumbers and ranch dressing).
For dinner try one of the following; Barbeque Chicken, Ribs, or Brisket platters (they come with 2 sides and dessert) or Texas Mesquite BBQ Beef Ribs with cowboy beans and potato salad.
Sports bar with 1 big screen tv and 5 others to watch games (Happy Hour runs from 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.).
Favorite Dish: You might want to try Sam's Famous Wings (their mouth-watering chicken wings are seasoned to your taste...Mild, Hot, Nuclear, BBQ or Teriyaki) with a generous portion of Sam's Fries (delicious hand-cut fries served golden brown and sprinkled with their famous special seasonings).
Or try the Outrageous Chicken Sandwich (a grilled chicken breast served on a burger bun with bacon, firesticks, provolone cheese, crisp lettuce and sliced tomato) with a generous portion of Sam's Fries (delicious hand-cut fries served golden brown and sprinkled with their famous special seasonings).
The bread is baked fresh every morning and only the finest, freshest ingredients are used...all of their deli meats and cheese are sliced daily to guarantee freshness....this adds up to a better product than Subway and I really like Subway!!!
Favorite Dish: Try the 71/2 inch Roast Beef Combo on cheesy Parmesan Asiago bread (with tomato, onion, lettuce, oil dressing, mayo, salt and pepper), chips and a large drink.
I got this recommendation from one of the locals and they were right...it's one of the best Mexican restaurants in Yuma. That's saying a lot since Yuma is only a 10 -15 minute drive from Mexico. The food is delicious, the ambience reminds you of Mexico and the atmosphere is traditional.
Favorite Dish: I started off with fresh tortilla chips and medium/hot salsa. For dinner, I selected the Carne Asada (flank steak cooked to medium doness, mexican rice, salad, refried beans and pico de gallo. I had a margarita on the rocks with Patron Tequila...so, so good!!!
This is a local establishment that has won many awards for excellent food and service. The surroundings are nothing to write home about, but you go for the food and choices rather than the ambience.
Favorite Dish: I selected the Chicken & Beef Rice Bowl (with white rice and spicy teriyaki).
If you plan to stop in Yuma for lunch, then most tour coaches stop here.
This photo was taken in 1997 and the price of the buffet (for coach tours) was $5.95. each. This time we visited in 2003 = the price for those on the tour coach was - $5.95. each.
Senior's also are given discounts.

Favorite Dish: all food was good, at a great price.
No fancy table cloths, but good wholesome food.
Haha, the best restaurant (and the only) I enjoyed in Yuma was... sandwiches made by my wife Ursula at this picknicking area just in front (on the right) of the Yuma Territorial prison State Historic Part.
Favorite Dish: Sandwiches made by Ursula: ham, luncheon meat, tomatoes, onion, thousand island dressing and God knows what else :-))). Thank you Ursula :-)
Located next to the Ramada Inn Chilton Conference Center...this restaurant serves up pretty good food at an inexpensive price.
Favorite Dish: It has a pretty extensive buffet covering everything from appetizers to desserts.
Nice family run restaurant which serves authentic mexican breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have a salsa bar to spice up your dishes and Happy Hour is from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Favorite Dish: The Carne Asada served with flour tortillas, rice and beans. Excellent choice which you can make hotter by adding spices!!!
