Amazing how efficient this tiny place is

The little grill has the capacity to serve two or three people at a time, that's it. There are always thrity or forty people in there being rude to the hardworking employees. The food is fastfood, but a much higher quality than in the valley, because they have the time to pay more attention to... read more

We visited the Grill after doing the hike up to Elizabeth Lake and were very hungry. The grill did not disappoint. The fries are absolutely fantastic- lovely thick cut chips with lots of salt. The burger and the chicken pesto sandwich were pretty good and very reasonably priced. Overall, it was good value, filling lunch.

it's disappointing when a place has the opportunity to make a backpackers dream come true... and drop the ball. we rolled in for breakfast because I couldn't stomach any more granola, and we were met with half an egg, uncooked cold potatoes, and some factory sausage patty. for 10$. you could have taken the same ingredients and really produced something...

this is a like a roadside stand. burger, fries, chicken sandwich, bean burger. They have some icecream, beverages. nothing great but it will do if you are hiking. A half coz picnic tables outside for seating. Thick steak fries were better than I expected.

Having read so many positive reviews on TA, we decided to make this our lunch stop. What a mistake it was. Although this place was far from the city, and I expected higher prices, the food quality really disappointed. The hotdog my wife had was OK, but nothing special. My burger was pretty terrible - it was almost tasteless, with... More

We stopped here while doing a multi-day backpacking trip on the JMT. We were talking about getting a cheeseburger and fries for the last 10 miles heading into Tuolumne Meadows. The grill is a short 5 minute walk from the backpacker campground and delivers on the needed burger satisfaction factor. We also grabbed some breakfast sandwiches here before we hit... More

Great place for any meal. We stopped here for lunch and the place was very busy, but the service was quick and polite. We ate the hamburger and pulled pork sandwich. Both were tasty; the bread they used were the best I've had in a while. And for a remote location is was nice to enjoy a great meal. Please... More
