Real good, I'd go again

I found this restaurant on my way between Bodie and Yosemite. Had the spare ribs and they were really good, the portions were generous, fries great. Service was a little average, but when they served me the wrong beer they promptly changed it with the one I actually wanted.

Food was good. Prices are reasonable and our waiter was a doll. Even our 12 year old granddaughter thought the food was good. Felt quite well fed. Stuffed in fact and went on to see the lake.

Had dinner here tonight because there aren't that many options in Lee Vining. Place was right next to our motel and got some pretty good reviews. The server was nice and attentive, so far so good. I didn't have a great big apetite so decided to share the half rack of BBQ pork ribs with my boyfriend and add an... More

Stopped here to get some BBQ (pulled pork). Sandwich was large so my wife and I split it. Came with steak fries and another side. I chose the salad, it was tiny. About 1/2 cup. Sandwich was average. Had the carrot cake for dessert. Again big enough to split. Had a great flavor.

While traveling through this area, we decided to stop for a sandwich for lunch. First we were told that the BBQ would not have any fat (my husband hates fat), which was entirely false and secondly it wasn't the best BBQ flavor. I would say average, but then again I'm from Texas, where we have GREAT BBQ.

A good place to stop coming out of Yosemite. Food was ok, nothing special. Outdoor tables are available. Next door to Mono Lake visitors center.

Outdoor patio area is nice, small inside. Barbeque pork sandwich was good. Service was friendly. Nice place with surrounding souvenir shops.

Limited menu choices. We had the Tri-tip sandwich and the BBQ chicken sandwich. They were both just average fare served with large steak fries that were rather bland. Our waitress was pretty good but seen the other servers were not. Outdoor seating is a nice plus. Cost us about $31 for the 2 sandwiches and drinks. I would try elsewhere... More
