Meh… I’d rather go say hi to Ed at the market and grab a burrito, some fresh guacamole, a quart of whole milk, and some Tasty Bites.

It's always a pleasure to stop at the MoMart. If I'm there, it means I have just finished, or am on my way to, an adventure.

Thanks for that great video Micronut. I missed it up until now. Can't wait to get back down there.

I'm just glad nobody has mentioned the Tiger Bar. If the Mobil's Patchouli-and-Patagonia horde ever takes over that venue, the East Side may as well be the West Side. E Clampus Vitus!

Seems like I filled up with gas at this place. I don't know if the Mobil was there the last time I was in Lee Vining.

"From 2006 until the recent opening of Toomey’s Carry-Out, Toomey famously delighted Mammoth regulars with his gourmet food served in out-of-the-box settings, such as his original Whoa Nellie Deli, a seasonal pop-up restaurant attached to a gas station that grew into a local landmark. His patrons quickly became loyal followers and friends who returned time and time again for signature dishes including Coconut Mascarpone Pancakes, Lobster Taquitos, and Toomey’s own favorite: the Green Monster Smoothie. "

Toomey has closed the Whoa Nellie Deli to focus his attention full time at Toomey’s Carry-Out

So some got their wish. Back to hot dogs....

Definitely with Russ on this one, Ive been over the Mobil for quite some time. After falling prey to the fad and spending sh#t tons of money in there, their sh#t is overpriced even by LV standards and they treat everyone like a bunch of euro tourists. Whoever is patronizing your place, you should at least fake being nice for crying out loud. TPR, nicelys, and mono mart get my $ these days. Mono mart has the bomb burritos always ready anyhow. Waaay better. Patronize them instead

Thinking about it, I believe the TM gets hyped because it is decent food where one might expect crap. That, and everybody goes there so it must be awesome, right? I've been eating so ridiculously good/bad the past week in Austin that the mobilmart looks like a kindergarten joke right now.

revisionism is in vogue this month

the Mobil had legitimately good food; I don't recall flinching at the prices either (can't say I'm a dirtbag these days though)

it always beat Mountain House or "Kamandu Curry" or white bread and jerky from the local gas station

A different vision from yours doesn't make it a revision. Eat where and what you like, I just don't count the TM as even close to what makes the region great. Drinking Mammoth 395 ale in Buckeye springs would be more like it. Climbing a peak with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich even more so. If I want posh eats, I'll go where they really know that sh#t. If I want the beauty of nature where even eating cold canned beans will taste like manna, I'll go to the Sierras.

TPR is way overpriced compared to Mobil- y'all just like to rep stuff cuz its not the in scene- bunch of hipsters

Nope, mr oaksterdam, youre wrong....its because they have the best meatloaf sammich, coconut cream pie,and they are personable and nice, not too cool to speak a syllable to you as they take your order and deliver your food.

Nice guess though. Keep trying, you'll figure us out. You know you wanna be half as cool as me. Its all about who appears cooler.

The Mobil is not in Tuolumne. It is a mile or so outside of Lee Vining.
The rest of Lee Vining is cool too, check it out sometine, OK? Especially the Mono Market. The deli case might surprise you.

Oh come on Hoss...! You are a former employee and secret stock holder in the Mono Market so your opinion is slanted... but they do carry inner tubes for road bikes and their breakfast menu is great....RJ

The Mobile; just another gourmet menu with the wafting aroma of gas pumps... Go to the Mono Cone for good eats, owned and operated by native locals!
