top of the line cheeseburgers plenty of everything & great fries and a old time patio out back to eat. wonderful shakes and root beer floats only open during the warm season so if your heading into Yosemite or coming east from the coast you better give it a try you'll be back...

Pretty broad menu. I went with a standard burger and fries and think this little shop has the best in town. Picnic table in the back are a nice touch.

Their menu shows the difference between a... More

Tried the chocolate sundae and fudge sundae. The protions were huge, especiqlly with whipped cream on top. Would recommend sharing the sundaes with at least one other. You could also buy cones in different sizes, the smallest would probably been more suitable for one. A sundae was 5,5 usd, a bit expensive but not when you take the size of... More

Not the healthiest of foods but delicious. We had two different burgers some chips and milkshake and they were MUCH better than ones I have paid triple the price for. Would go back and recommend for cheap, fast & yummy food.

Friendly, family run, fantastic food quality, busy for a reason. Sitting outside is great, rare rain had us go inside which was also nice.

This was the first place I ever had chili cheese fries. They're a little piece of Heaven and no one makes them as good. I haven't been able to have their food in years as we now do our fishing in late October/early November to avoid parents with kids and rude photographers. But we went this June after attending the...
