Now, on to lunch. Being in the mood for meat (carnivore that I am), I opted for one of their famous ½ lb burgers. I was wrestling with the idea of tackling the “El Capitan” one-pounder, but my Brother decided to take one for the team assuring that at least ONE of the Bolings has their picture on the Wall of Fame (if you eat the entire burger, you get your picture taken). As a joke, we had the waitress take a picture of my two month old son instead…
"Yosemite Fall’s burgers really are worth the visit!"
So, how were the burgers? Mine was very tasty! The burgers have that wonderful charbroiled taste you’d only get with open flame cooking and the bun was light and buttery. Perfectly seasoned and actually cooked to medium-rare (unlike some other places that ask you how you’d like your burger to be cooked only to then tell you they can only serve it medium-well or well… what’s up with that?!), Yosemite Fall’s burgers really are worth the visit!
Other than the burgers, our table of tasting professionals (okay, maybe not professionals – but hungry all the same) enjoyed various other menu offerings, and everyone was raving about the food. One particular item that looked appealing was the house Turkey Deluxe sandwich. Talk about generous portions! Imagine a turkey club on steroids served on a golden asiago ciabatta roll… Again, no complaints.
As far as sides go, the fries were crispy and hot when they hit the table, the potato salad was nicely seasoned with a hint of dill and the salads were fresh cut lettuce with just the right amount of dressings. All in all, the place far exceeded my expectations.
To wrap up, I plan on returning to Yosemite Falls in the very near future to try out their breakfasts, and then maybe for dinner. Actually, I might make it one of my regular spots! Heck, my baby boy’s picture is on the Wall of Fame…
As far as Cafés go, five out of five stars.
