After the shocking prices for food at our hotel in El Portal, we were glad to find affordable and good food here. A food court, for sure, with limited options, but certainly affordable!

This restaurant is the one situated next to Cedar Lodge at El Portal .There is a breakfast place in the same building. I went for a dinner and it was ok. Nothing great about it. Average food. Tad overpriced due to the location.

Authentic 60's diner with a local bar. The restaurant has self-service and call out you number of your order. Don't let this put you off once you receive your diner it's all ok. You have to try the hamburgers.

We went to the bar early, had a few drinks, and a snack. Michael, the bartender, was fantastic to talk with. He had great stories and even knew the area we were from. He also made a great drink!

If you're after a good burger and a cold beer then this place will suit you just fine. The food is decent and the location is convenient if you're staying at Cedar Lodge.
