Nothing wrong with it, but you do pay a premium (for gas and food).

Mango chutney fish tacos and a cold red brew in my blackened tape residued hands after a successful mission in Tuolumne is one of life's finer moments. Praise be to The Mobile. Hail hail.

Premium for gas but the food is an excellent value for what you get.

Just remember-- Lee Vining is right in the "middle of nowhere"... so expect to pay for being there, too.

Since I'm thirty years away from my senior pass, I'd rather pay to get into Tuolumne ;).

Nothing against the food, the music, and just maybe a little against the crowds and price on my part. I try to make my gas last through that area, they gouge the crap out of you in those towns. But, yeah, if I have the shillings to spare, the Tuolumne Mobil is pretty cool for where it's at.

Please let me know if I haven't prostrated myself appropriately, and I'll try harder next post, lol!!!

No the Whoa Nellie Deli is YuppieLand and while the food is good the crowd MUST BE MOCKED.

Mocked I tell you.

They make legendary mock lobster tacos I hear.

Hahahaha! Okay, the mocking will proceed, Dingus. I'm a bit suspicious now of Donini though, I thought his type was supposed to be on a fixed income and napping during daytime television. Instead, he's climbing and eating better than a much younger man.

I only get there every couple of years, and it's usually after a fun day out. I'm gonna pay about the same for that caliber of food in the city but I get to look at Mono Lake as the sun goes down for free.

Go ahead and mock us, that is if you're having as much fun as we were when this was taken :)

Just a couple of crazy kids each with grown kids of their own, drawn together along with other friends, spur of the moment, around the granfalloon of the Mobil. I was nearly drowned a couple of hours before, so thought a clean shirt was in order. Lynne, just always looks that good!

Oh Werner, (below) you tease!

Cliche hangout, the "in people" club, I totally avoid that place.

There's a way better place across the street deep in the sage brush ....

sometimes those mango fish tacos and some live music just sound a bit more appealing than basic camp glop.

Ah but Werner-the "in people's" idea of trash is another man treasure-going to be some serious dumpster diving this season. Are you certified?

i went into the chevron up the street thinkin it was the famous whoa deli,

there sits a hot lamp over some 3 day old pizza slices,

i'm startin to think the place is over hyped,

but i made it into the right place and had food with all the right people,

clean people, important people, outstanding people, above average people, tired people, people who you get stuck behind on the way up the hill,
