Quaint place, great service, good food!

Stopped at Happy Burger on the way to Yosemite. What a cute place!! You order at the counter, your food gets delivered to your table. We got a table in the patio area, as it was a pleasant day to eat outside. Food was very good and plentiful. Bathrooms are small but clean. Nice roadside diner.

Very local kind of place but has space and playground for younger guests. Interesting collection of record covers to view on the walls and up the ceiling. Busy little place.

Very busy place for lunch. We ordered a happy burger and an Italian steak and mushroom sandwich. Each order comes with fries or a bag of chips. My husband ordered a root beer float and I had an ice tea. The Italian steak sandwich was very flavorful. The happy burger was ok. Comparing the prices of this restaurant to those... More

Was in the area for a motorcycle rally, people who have been in Mariposa swore by this place. Place definitely busy....for good reason. The food, even though a bit expensive, was terrific. The waitress, and bus people went out of their way to take care of your every need. Definitely a place to try

Happy Burger doesn't need me to encourage people to go there; it is a well-known stop for many travelers and locals alike. The table space is limited, so be prepared to take it to go if you hit the place during a busy time. The burgers are great, and the menu offers quite a variety beyond the standard burger. There...

We stopped here on the hotel staff recommendation. The burgers and prices were very reasonable. I enjoyed my meal but my wife was unhappy with everything BUT the meal. She was not too happy with the little salad bar but I thought it was just fine. She was VERY unhappy with having to go outside to the restroom which I... More

Business is very supportive of local organizations and events! Good food, salad bar, great burgers and such. I particularly like their chicken ortega burger! They even have exotic meats like ostrich and bison!
