We went in for breakfast (wish we were in town longer to try for a burger later in the day too as had a great menu!). I had the omelet and home fries, and hubby had french toast both of which were plentiful and delicious (despite the obligatory slice of orange that gets added to everything once you hit California!)...

When I go to a restaurant with a huge selection it makes me wonder if the food is fresh or frozen? Everything we ordered was over cooked and poorly presented. Sorry.

We had lunch here whilst staying in Mariposa, the place is decorated with LP covers and feels like a proper American diner. The menu is huge, prices are reasonable, food tasted great and the service was good. I can't fault the place and would recommend stopping by if you are passing.

Happy Burger IS Mariposa. A huge menu, friendly fast service. Record albums line the ceiling and cards and letters from friends and visitors line the walls along with many photos of Mariposa. The servings are very good sized and the quality of the food is always above average. Plenty of parking and clean restrooms.

We stopped by Happy Burger, they have a huge menu! We had the Happy burger and a Rueben, both were delicious. The French fries were really tasty. We didn't order a milkshake but the folks next to us did and said it was excellent...it looked good! This staff is very friendly and efficient. This place is a great value with... More

Not much to look at but looks can be deceiving. On first entering you notice the chaos or what sems to be but hen you learn the ropes it is organized and well ran. From the cashier to the girls who bring your food to the table are all smiling and seem to like working there. Their motto seems to... More

This hometown restaurant has a huge menu from breakfast, to dinner and desserts and snacks in between. They even have beer and wine. The atmosphere is casual with the walls and ceilings covered with record album covers of the past. The meals are tasty and of good size. For those watching their fat/cholesterol intake, there are alternatives such as egg... More
