Great Food, Nice People!

Stopped in with a largish (8) group of motorcyclists. It was around lunch time, and they were busy so it took 15 minutes or so to get everybody's orders. (Stand in line and order at the counter) They set up a couple tables for us and the food was brought out to us in a timely manner. Also, the... read more

Fun, quirky little place. The ceiling and walls are covered in old LP album covers. We loved it! The burgers are awesome, and if that's not your thing there are about eight pages of other menu items to choose from. Seriously, it's a huge menu! It's a laid back, relaxed atmosphere where we saw a lot of the locals. You... More

The food is good and hot. You order at the counter and the food is brought out. The walls are decorated with old album covers to make it interesting.

Have been to Yosemite 3 times now, staying in Mariposa for a couple of nights each time, and have had at least one evening meal and a breakfast on each occasion. Absolutely love this place - great range of items on the menu, well priced, friendly service and always tasty. Would highly recommend it to anyone in town

Great food, vegetarian/vegan options, huge menu, friendly staff, dog friendly, free wifi, communal computer, games for kids and clean restrooms. You order at the counter but the waiters bring your food to you. They are very friendly and accommodating. They have 3 rooms of seating, one semi-enclosed. They have a takeout window and a doggy dining area with leash. They... More

I was expected a little better because of the reviews. Honestly I thought there were too many items on the menu and wondered how they could keep them all fresh. The prices were expensive compared to other burger joints. No complaints about the food. I had a burger, fries, and a drink.

This is a great place to stop for lunch in Mariposa. There are a huge number of menu choices, from drinks, to salads, to burgers, to sandwiches, and so on. Newspapers to read. Old LP album covers on the ceiling. Friendly help. Thick REAL milkshakes. Something for everyone.

They have a TON of burger options...the... More

Bewildering selection of breakfast specials but once you've figured them out, it's a diner breakfast to remember. Good coffee, thick bacon, pancakes the size of your head with a choice of several syrups, real fresh fruit in the fruit cup, sourdough toast. The ceiling is covered in old album covers from the 70's. The TV is tuned to Fox News... More
