- Cuisines: American, Fusion
NileGuide Expert Says:
A hidden gem in the desert, worth seeking out.
NileGuide Expert tip:
You cannot go wrong here. The fish tacos are killer!
- You've never seen a place like "The Mobil" as locals call it. Hidden inside a gas station mini-mart that could be anywhere in the US is a true delight: a high quality dining experience. Yes, it's a deli, you stand in line, read the menu off of an overhead board, have to wait a bit til they shout out your number at the counter. But the food is great! The menu is a surprise: lobster taquitos, buffalo meatloaf, an oyster po' boy sandwich and world-famous fish tacos. Chef Matt Toomey has created an astonishing delight at the strange boundary of Sierra, high desert and a saline lake. You'll find hundreds of people here on a weekend night, when Yosemite locals come for food and live music. A lush lawn with great views of Mono Lake makes a great place for families to linger of an evening, watching the sunset colors while enjoying food that really is world famous.
