Great menudo!

Portions are decent, food is generally pretty good, daily specials, especially the ribs are great (all you can eat). My favorite is the menudo which is not offered every day but when it is, a big bowl comes out with all of the garnishes.

The owner of this restaurant is hilarious. We had been driving for a long time through the night and stopped for breakfast here. The restaurant was closed when we arrived just before 7am but the owner opened it up as soon as he saw us and invited us in. The service was fast and the food was great. The owner... More

I've read all the reviews. There is some truth in each of them. If you want management to leave you alone and just serve food...this isn't your place. If you don't like photos all over the walls of family...this isn't your place. If you want ordinary and get worried when things aren't....this isn't your place. But if you want a... More

My Husband and I were driving to the Eastern Sierras from Los Angeles. We wanted to eat in Bishop and we have been to the main popular restaurants and we were not impressed. We found the Petite Pantry on Trip Advisor. I ordered the Fried Chicken and it was tasty and flaky. My Husband loved the hot chocolate and the... More

Person who seated us was very friendly. Brought our drinks right away and took our order right away. Entertained us with stories about his life. Unsolicited stories. I was afraid to touch anything. It didn't look or feel clean. I ordered breakfast and the smell coming off the food made me sick. I couldn't eat much of any of the... More

Quirky ambience (e.g. office chairs for seating), but INCREDIBLE food, and an eccentric owner/host/server/raconteur.

I've now been here a few times and every time, it does not disappoint. Immediately upon entering you are greeted with a smile and chit chat. All the tables have office chairs as their chairs and you are given homemade salsa and 2 kinds of chips, flour and corn (man those flour ones....think a tostada shell, are amazing) chips and...
