We were driving from LA to south Lake Tahoe and got hungry and stopped here. We ordered sandwiches and decided to sit outside, but had to move inside because the flies were horrible. Sandwiches were good, but the BBQ sauce was too sweet for our taste. Sandwiches came with fries and choice of macaroni salad, coleslaw or salad. I got... More

We skipped the BBQ; tempting but a heavier meal than we wanted, but the salmon was good and the sides and salad bar plentiful. A good selection of beers, too. Not a place to drive to as a destination, but if you are in town and want something a little special it is worth a visit.

Lee Vining predictably doesn't offer that much in terms of restaurants, but Bodie Mike's BBQ was our choice and we did well. With its western-style characterization and good BBQ food (the baby back ribs were excellent) we had a great evening with the family before leaving for Yosemite the next day. There's an all-you-can-eat salad bar too, as well as... More

Having had a long drive we were very keen to eat and went into Bodie. Mikes. The choice was limited to fried food but what did we expect in a BBQ joint? The inside was very dark and the furniture had definitely seen better days. Our server was very poor and for most of our meal she disappeared and we... More

We had dinner here the evening of August 6 after a long drive up from SoCal. The view is great, the food is solid and the portions generous. The staff is friendly and helpful. It was nice to see that the place was still here as our first visit was 19 years ago on an anniversary trip (pre-kids) and it... More

The outdoor seating combined with good food and local beers after a long day of hiking in the local mountains is perfect.

We had the BBQ and it was excellent - the portions were big, the salad/soup bar was always full and the staff were very friendly

This was a nice stop on our trip. Good Barbeque (we even bought a bottle to take home) Good Brew and a Great Patio area to watch the locals and view Mono Lake. I'm vegetarian and they even had a good Veggie Burger. After a day of hiking it was fun and relaxing. Staff was very nice.

This is my "Must Stop" place after backpacking in the Yosemite High Country. They have a great selection of tasty barbeque but my favorite has always been the barbeque burger, cooked the way I like it with BBQ sauce and a side of french fries. Yumm! Add a cold beer and you have a great remedy for altitude sickness. Yes,... More

This is one of the few places to eat in Lee Vining, and it definitely stands out as you drive by. Mainly, this is where all the people seem to be heading. And with good reason. The food is very good, and not just because there aren't many choices. There's ample patio seating for a community feel, but we opted... More
