Murphs Gaslight started back in 1976, inspired by Ralph Murphy, and has actually been the go to place for “The” best Pan Fried Chicken in the desert ever since. And speaking from someone who really never liked Fried Chicken, I can honestly say that their Pan Fried Chicken has turned my taste buds around and now I crave the stuff….well at least their stuff. Succulent and golden fried to perfection in old Southern tradition, their recipe has been high on the menu of Pan Fried Chicken connoisseurs for over 40 years.
Murphs Gaslight sits next to Bermuda Dunes airport, and has a mixed cliental of mature desert dwellers, tourists and families. The spot has an illustrious history, and used to be a place where pilots would hang out back in the day ( circa late 1950's) between flights, complete with a swimming pool and tennis courts.
The menu at Murphs consists of hearty meals such as fly off the bone Baby Back Ribs and Chicken Pot Pie among others, but it’s their excellent Pan Fried Chicken that is the shining star at Murphs.
Thier cozy pub style bar is inviting and offers a variety of drinks as well as bar food items.
Murphs Gaslight is a Coachella Valley treasure, and a definite must for home style Pan Fried Chicken, comfort food and old school local fun.
