We went to Lake Kaweah to see the sunset, and stopped at Ol Buckaroo in Three Rivers for dinner. Never left for the sunset. Sit outside by the river unless it is snowing. Dinner was perfect in all aspects.

Every local I talked to recommended Ol' Buckaroo Diner - BUT, it came with the caveat that it was amazing when they were just getting started, and were operating out of a food truck while the main restaurant was being made ready. Now, the main...More

The "restaurant" is a food truck adapted in a yard to operate as a "restaurant". I a not sure reservations are taken - it is pretty casual - and better you call about the labor day
