We stopped here for a burger after hiking to the top of Lumbert Dome. Not 5 stars, but for the area, it was great food! Try their soft-serve ice cream!

The choices are limited on the Tioga Road in Yosemite for food. My wife and I were in the Tuolumne area and needed a bite to eat. I was surprised to see the many options of food items and the prices were fair. The food...More

I have to say this was one of the worst hamburgers I have ever had - it was totally dry and tasteless. It did improve slightly toward the end when the ketchup and mayo started to penetrate the dry, sawdust like hamburger but that is...More

Double cheeseburger, grilled chicken sandwich, potato wedges - tasted ok, nothing great. Free soda refills. Service was great and fast even with the line. Limited seating when it's crowded.

The context is that you don't have many choices (although I heard the restaurant at the Mobil Station is darn good). You're in a campground. So having a sit down dinner is fun in a throwback way. You are seated at 8-person tables at one...More

Google Maps shows 1.4 miles. That sounds about right. That's about 30 minutes to walk or $2 to take the shuttle.
