“wish I could say I loved it”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Yes, it's a very homey atmosphere with very nice staff. Unfortunately, we were not impressed with the food, especially for the prices. It was a large meal, but both the brisket and the chicken were over-cooked and dry. The local Mammoth beer was very good, but with the reviews here, I had expected sooo much more.

“Great BBQ Find”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

My wife and I spent a lot of time exploring Bodie one morning a couple weeks ago and were running late for our planned lunch in Carson City when we happened across Mountain View Barbeque in Walker. Jeff was quite friendly and seemed very happy making good barbeque for locals and travelers. He has a very clean facility and evidently puts a lot of effort into his business. We shared the large combination platter and it was really all we could eat and was delicious. Also enjoyed sitting on the picnic tables out front on a beautiful October day, taking in the aroma of meat smoking nearby. Thanks, Jeff and best wishes for your continued success.

“What a surprise!!!!!”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

We were driving between Yomsite and Lake Tahoe on Highway 395. A lonely boring drive in the Sierra mountains (very unattractive mountain range). We were hungry but chances of finding an open resturant seemed unlikely. A sign for barbeque appeared and being desperate, we stopped. I was very hesitant as it wasn't a place I would have normally chosen. We are very glad we did. The food was absolutely delicious. So unexpected! The owner came and chatted with us and was charming. The biggest surprise was the lovely ladies restroom! Don't judge a place by your initial perception!

“Take a Break...”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

On our annual camping trip to Tioga Pass we always look forward to a return home trip meal and break in Walker. With limited options in this quaint little Eastern Sierra town, we decided to try the Mountain View Barbeque and it was excellent! We enjoyed conversation with other "regulars" passing through and enjoying a burger. Jeff, the owner, and his family were wonderful hosts and served us at our table out front. Friendly and attentive family-style table service and local beer on tap make this stop a must from here on during the Summer. Other menu options, which I enjoyed, were the pulled pork sandwich and the short rack of ribs looked super.

“Just LOVE this place!!”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

We stayed in Walker and went there for dinner on a Friday night. We loved it so much we went again on Saturday night. Jeff, the owner, is a wonderful purveyor and treats his customers right..... and has one of the best smoked barbecue meats we have ever had. The choices for sides are great too!! Homemade fries and wonderful artichoke rice salad were my favorites. Eat inside or outside - we did both and were really happy we stopped!! We will visit again and again!!
