Lunch at the Hitching Post is filling and cheap. I had three tacos. Two would have been ample, still I ate them all up as they were yummy. This definitely isn't a wild social scene on a week day in October, but you might be able to play a hand at Bridge with some of the regulars

If you arrive in town after 8 there are few good places to eat. The Hitching post is a little outside of town but not that far. The food here is good and the portions are large.

This was very convenient for us after a long day driving. This is a grill bar / sports bar and serves a straight forward menu. Burgers, chicken etc. It had some good beers on tap. This is a place that clearly has lots of local families dropping in and it makes for a really pleasant atmosphere.

We enjoy local color and eating where the locals eat. This is not a place you'd immediately stop with the kids and grandma in the car. It doesn't have much curb appeal. BUT, if you did stop, you'd love the food.

Nothing fancy, rustic saloon bar and grill. Seats around 60. Great to take the family to. California Burger is dynamite.

After a long day of driving, we were tired and hungry and didn't want to travel far. Our innkeepers recommended this spot for a good burger, and they were right. Delicious, with lots of tomato, onion, lettuce, and fries. I like mine "incinerated" well-done, and the chef managed a perfect "hockey puck" while preserving flavor and juiciness! The wine pours...

We ate dinner here while in town visiting Yosemite, and too tired to make it to Oakhurst for dinner. The staff was friendly and the food delicious.
