For our last meal in Death Valley, my girlfriend and I stopped at the 49er Cafe at Furnace Creek Ranch. We each had a burger and fries and wound up spending nearly $40! The food was good, I have to admit, but I wouldn't do it again. And any restaurant that has a fee if two people order only one item ($4.00 "plate charge") is disgusting, in my opinion. They're just after your money.
The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere to it. I really liked looking at the menu from 1940 they've framed and put on the wall, for instance. There's a family-owned feeling to it, even though it's owned by a corporation.
The staff was nice enough, and like I said, I enjoyed the food. But I felt gross after paying the bill. Even in Death Valley, there are limits and I can't help but feeling gouged here.
