If you decide to come here, plan your day around it. Breakfast took over 40 minutes to get served and the food was cold. Went back later for Ice Cream and it was 35 minutes to get a cone and a hot fudge sundae. Asked for it to go, but they brought sundae in full bowl and plate. So we... More

The burgers -- we had turkey burgers -- were very good and the tater tots were, as well. When you go in the door, you pick your table and the menus are on the table. Decide what you want, and go to the window to place your order and pay. Someone will bring your order to you -- they call... More

A must stop on the way into Yosemite. Your last chance for decent food at decent prices. :) But this isn't a 5 star restaurant. This is an excellent diner. Menu is enormous..something for literally everyone. Each time we are here, food is hot, delicious and reasonably priced. Also, nice staff and very welcoming and friendly.

We stopped on our way to Yosemite. Take a seat, look at the menu, go up to the counter to order. The nice staff bring you your food. Had a tuna melt and fish tacos. Both were delicious! Very nice salad bar option to fries - although they looked good too. Menu is very extensive. We will go back!

The headline pretty much says it all. Very good food for a fair price with quick friendly service. Had the 49er burger and it was very satisfying.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Yosemite...Happy Burger is on the road to Yosemite - easy to find. Had a good breakfast that was actually inexpensive. The menu was huge. The bathrooms were clean and service was prompt. We would stop here again - hoping next time to be able to try a burger.

Breakfast was fast and affordable. We had two small breakfasts. A bit greasy, but it's diner food. Fruit was both over and under ripe in the fruit cup. I would eat here again. Bathroom was clean and they have free internet if you need it.

Coming out of the park, needed a bit to eat. Got a burger at 8 in the morning. They have a huge menu. Service was good, took a bit for our food to come but when it did it was very good.
