Good eatin' in Yuma, Arizona

Everyone gets hungry when they’re traveling. Eating new foods is part of the enjoyment of a trip. Even when you’re traveling in your own home, as we did for two years in our travel trailer, cooking in a tiny kitchen can be frustrating.

We spent seven months in Yuma, Arizona, and here’s a list of some of the restaurants we ate at frequently:

Martha's Gardens makes great milk shakes from
 dates grown in the on-site orchard.
·       Yuma Palace, 350 East 32nd Street, is the Asian restaurant that we ate at the most when we were in the mood for Chinese. Good food, good service, reasonable prices.

·       Lim’s Grand Buffet, 2135 East 16th Street, is a Chinese restaurant that is very popular with Yumans, with lines that frequently stretched out the door at meal times. They serve a wide variety of Chinese dishes, plus French fries, pizza and the best enchiladas I ate in Yuma. They offer a senior discount.

·       Da Boyz, 11274 South Fortuna Road, loads their pizzas with cheese and other goodies.  They frequently offer discount coupons on local shoppers.

·       Pita Pit, located in the Yuma Palms Mall, offers healthy pita sandwiches with a variety of fillings.

·       Martha’s Gardens can be hard to find, tucked away in rural Yuma at 9747 South Avenue 9-3/4 E, but their date shakes make it worth the trouble.  These milk shakes, made from medjool dates grown on their organic farm, are simply the best.  There’s almost always a line of people waiting for one. The snack bar also makes some pretty good sub sandwiches, too. The snack bar accepts only cash, while the store accepts debit and credit cards for other purchases. Martha’s is closed from late spring through early fall.
