The happy burgers were OK, but it is not done for an ordinary burger restaurant to wait for more than an hour. At least they informed me that it could take an hour when I ordered.

If you re looking for a fun little dive to eat, this will suit just nicely thank you. The prices are quite inexpensive and the menu is enormous - you should be able to find something to your liking at a place like this. It's a great stop for dinner after a hard day of hiking in Yosemite.

funky little burger place with old album covers all over the ceiling and walls. We had burger, tots and shakes. They were all okI like my burger thicker so it can be cooked rare but like most small burger places, this was a thin burger cooked well done, I got a patty melt so the cheese and onions helped disguise...

With a garish yellow sign that blurts "Biggest Menu of the Sierras" we were skeptical of quality. Wow, were we surprised! Ordering only a chocolate malted milkshake to go, we had a moment to check out the decor -- fifties style juke boxes, sure, but the walls and ceilings showed off more than music: original album covers stapled to the...

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!

Happy Burger is a welcoming oasis with hundreds of meal choices for a weary traveler and most can find a generous breakfast or lunch to get them fueled up for the trip to Yosemite. This roadside cafe is not just a burger joint. It has hundreds of choices for sandwiches, salads and side dishes with the option of adding an... More

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.
