Admittedly this place is the only spot near Tuolumne Meadows to eat, but it doesn't deserve some poor reviews. Our food was good!

I saw this grill mentioned in several hiking blogs and youtube videos and had some expectations about it. It turned out to be quite disappointing. No options for vegans and the standard was very low. I think they know there is no competition anywhere nearby...More

Soft serve after an all day hike around the top of the park is great and a good treat for a hike well done. Other than that every time we go the place is packed and crowded and people waiting for food. I've not eaten...More

So we stopped for a bite to eat, it was 11:13am. Apparently they don't serve lunch until 11:15am. SHARPLY! NO EXCEPTIONS! At least, according to the surly young lady at the register. So we literally stared at each other for two minutes until she felt...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.

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