Great place to eat. My family ate it all up. I had the guacamole chicken sandwich and it was perfect. We all had delicious milkshakes that were made from real ice cream. It was a unique little diner. Order at the counter and they will bring to your table. It was a little pricey for a family of 5.

You can't go wrong with a place with a happy face on its sign. This place opens at 5:30, allowing us an early start to hiking. The have many breakfast options and are pretty open to substitutions too. Their french toast was just the right amount of crispiness. We also stopped here for dinner and had a decent burger and...

My GF and I are from Tennessee. We were driving from Yosemite to Napa, when by serendipity we found this interesting looking place. We were famished, so we stopped in around 4:00 PM. The ambience was a throwback to the 1960's. We ordered our burgers at the counter. We asked for no buns (we don't eat wheat), and they wrapped... More

It was well past time for lunch when we happened upon this restaurant. Unsure of it at first, we decided it was time to eat so the Happy Burger was a good bet to help us get on our way. We loved it. The people working there were very cordial and helpful. We ordered the best burger. They left off... More

This place is crazy. Hugh menu, very busy. You order your food at the counter and they bring it to you. Food was very good, pretty crowded, just the kind of fast food place you would find in a small town. Go for it!
