Nice fast food

Nice food served here to grab & go whilst you're on the road. It's pretty pricey for what it is but its Yosemite with a nice view so all in all pretty reasonable.

After a multi-day backpacking trip, or even a day-hike into the mountains), eating freeze dried food and trail mix, a cheeseburger from this place is about as good as it gets. It is right off the John Muir Trail and near the Backpacker's Camp. It is a small piece of food heaven in outdoor heaven.

After a morning drive from the valley, it was over an hour to the meadows & we grabbed lunch here. The salmon sandwich & pulled pork sandwich was good; the only downside is the picnic area is surprisingly small. Find a place & go back to it.

This is one of 3 options to get food in Tuolumne Meadows (this grill, Tuolumne Lodge, which is pricey, and premade meals at the general store). It offers good hearty breakfasts and a grill selection for lunch, but closes by 5 pm - if you miss the closing time there are even less choices left. It can be very crowded... More

After a nice hike we decided to have lunch at the Tuolumne Meadows Grill. There was a line, but we decided to wait as this is the only place to buy a hot lunch. It took over an hour to finally order and receive 2 burgers and frys. The burgers were fine, but don't plan for a quick lunch. They... More

Good place to get a basic breakfast or lunch in the Meadows or just to get some great Iced Green Tea after a hike.

Tuolumne Meadows Grill has delicious home made veggie burgers and chili. The wait time is well worth the great food!

An excellant BACON, egg, and cheese sandwich. Great location to take your food down near to the river, sit on a rock and enjoy some quite time.

Other places in the area (Tuolumne Meadows "Lodge" restaurant, and Tioga Pass Resort (outside the east gate) serve weak brew, but this places understands that when you're camping and hiking you want a REAL cup of coffee to kick start your day. Their java does not disappoint, it is nice and hot and very strong. The food is good too,... More

Not a lot to choose from in the area (if any) and it's a tent actually! We were surprised that the burgers and hot dogs were very good and the service friendly and efficient. Place is very busy and they still do very well getting the orders in and out. No dining area, but picnic tables are available outside. There... More
