“delicious, quick”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Veggie Burrito that is more food than I can eat, and delicious for less than $6 in 2014. with free chips.
Delicious salsa bar!

Bathrooms were pretty rough, but better than a gas station. Probably due to the large number of Yosemite climbers (like us) who stop there to refuel and clean up a little.

“Bad experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013 via mobile

Me and my family we just finish eatting at your location in oak dale CA. There was no flavor in any of the food some of the food was uncook it was no lake restaurant food it was lake fast food in that case we can just go to another fast food restaurant and of course will be better. We spend between -70 and 80.
I dont think its nice to go to a restaurant hoping its gone be great and them its no.
I went to talk to the person in charge but she did nothing and my husband was so angry that we just leave the place.......

“Consistently good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

I'm in here pretty regularly. The food is great. Burrito mojado with the red sauce is pretty bomb. The staff does a great job keeping up with the sheer volume of people that come in there on a Sunday night. They're open til 10pm.

“Delicious inexpensive food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

The place is very unassuming, tucked in a little strip center with a grocery store (which I also highly recommend for stocking up on picnic supplies for Yosemite!). You order at the counter, then choose your sauces and salsas from the bar. It was delicious, and so plentiful! I had nachos, which were covered with real cheese, beans, high-quality beef, sour cream, guacamole, and pico de gallo. I couldn't finish it all, and it was only $5.85!

You MUST try this place!
