Recently, my daughter and I, started buying the Cherry Berry chiller smoothie from McDonalds. If you have driven by any McDonalds nationwide, you will find they are promoting the Cherry berry drink. It is delicious!!
The only thing I do not like about it, is he amount of sugar in the drink. If you taste it you will realize the sugar in the drink is not natural fruit sugar, I believe they add sugar or syrup, but I so wish they would limit the grams of sugar in each drink to less than 10 grams. At 14 grams of sugar it tastes like diabetes in a cup.
I started making my own at home and it tastes better with less sugar!

Located at the Westin Monache, Whitebark is definitely one of the most elegant dining venues at Mammoth. A wide menu of a variety of international cuisines is offered, with wine and other cocktails. Whitebark also has a sushi bar, but when I ate hear I opted for the regular menu and had a delicious steak. Whitebark is mainly a dinner venue, but it is open for lunch with a reduced menu, naturally as most people would be on the slopes.
One of the best restaurants in Mammoth, Petra's advertises itself as a Bistro-Wine Bar. It certainly is both for it has a great wine menu and a bar area where one could go for just a drink, but it also has a nice dining room with a full menu of tasty dishes. For a ski resort with minimal culinary sophistication, Petra's is a rare find! The restaurant is conveniently located on Minaret Road, across the street from the Village at Mammoth.
Located on Old Mammoth Road next to the Charthouse, nik-n-willie's has been serving up sandwiches and pizza for as long as I can remember. The also serve salads. Very casual. I usually pick up a sandwich to go, but there is seating. Sub sandwiches rund from a turkey or chicken 4 1/2" at $5,50 to a 9" hot meat ball sandwich for $8.50. They also serve some creative pizza's, such as the Volcano with spicy chiplotle and chicken or a pesto and sausage pizza.
Favorite Dish: and they deliver.
The White Bark Inn at the Westin Monache Resort serves an excellent selection of gourmet dinners, lunches and appetizers. Very stylish setting. On the high end. It is on the pricey side, but when I want to indulge it is worth it. Very comfortable bar and lounge with several TV's keeping you up to date on the latest sports events.
The Austria Hof restaurant and bar on the ground level of the Austria Hof Hotel has been around since I can remember. My aunt used to stay there 25 or so years ago and we would join her for a drink in the bar. The place is a little worn now, but that adds to the ambiance. I usually stay at the hotel a couple times a year and eat there regularly. A definite Austrian feel. Weiner Schnitzel, Sauerbraten, wild mushroom and rabbit struedel. But that is not all. One of the few places in Mammoth you can get duck. plus other specialities such as Osso Bucco and a mixed game platter.
Favorite Dish: The schnitzels are very good.
Slocums has been around for over 20 years and has a well deserved reputation. I have enjoyed several meals there, mostly steaks, from rib eye and filet mignon to lamb. A nice wine selection and reasonable prices. The bar is busy and of course there is a happy hour. If not that hungry they have soups and salads.
Located on the main road into town, Angels has been dishing out good food for as long as I can remember. I can not remember a time I left hunger and there is a great selection of beers. The wine list is limited. Salads, sandwiches, burgers, plus BBQ ribs, chicken and even tequila limed salmon.
Favorite Dish: Both ribs and burgers have been rapidly consumed by yours truly.
The Sidedoor, located in The Village, provides a nice alternative to a big heavy meal, while providing an varied and interesting wine selection. They also have an espresso bar with both indoor and out seating. The clientele included both locals and visitors engaged in mixed conversationts.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the panini sandwich of chicken, goat cheese and pesto.
Long a local favorite located in an old A frame off the main tourist track, Gomez's was enticed into the village. You can still get the classic Mexican dishes such as tamales empanadas, burritos, etc, etc., as well as a cold beer or marguerita, all at reasonable prices. Quite a lively crowd.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the enchilladas.
I'm not a fan of the Pita Pit mostly because of the service and partly because I don't like pitas very much unless they're fresh, warm, and come as part of a shawarma. I do have to be fair and say that they do have good quality, tasty food. You get your choice of meat, vegetable and sauce toppings. The taste reminds me of a hot subway sandwich but with a different bread. All my friends enjoy the pita pit and frequently suggest it as a dinner option to me. The place is pretty cheap though.
Favorite Dish: Grilled chicken pita.
This place is great. Food is of excellent quality and comes in good sized portions. Additionally, the place has free wifi internet access which is great when your job requires you to take care of some things while you're "working from home." The staff is nice and usually the place is fairly empty after the breakfast / lunch time / apres ski rush so you can easily find an empty table to work at. There is seating outside too, but I only recommend that in the warm spring season.
Favorite Dish: The Turkey Club, oatmeal, and bagel with lox are my favorites. I always start the day of with an oatmeal, which comes with brown sugar and walnuts, and coffee. It's a great light breakfast before a heavy day of boarding. If I'm in town at lunchtime, my go to is the turkey club sandwich.
We were told by someone about this place. He said it was the best breakfast he ever had! Well, that is some claim, isn't it? So, we had to check it out. The breakfast we had was okay. Not the best but pretty good. It's located in an obscure place. You really have to know it's there. Anyway, it got filled up quickly so I guess lots of people know about this place.
Favorite Dish: I had the breakfast burrito with pork and chile verde. I couldn 't finish it - it was sooo big. My b boyfriend enjoyed his chile verde omlet. We basically had the same thing, just a little different.
I'm not too familiar with Thai food, but I'm sure this isn't it. The restaurant is somewhat small and service is somewhat patchy. Their food isn't bad, but then again, it wasn't good. Spicy wasn't very spicy and their curry tasted more like melted butter than actual curry. Prices weren't exorbitant, but it wasn't a budget meal either.
Favorite Dish: Veggie and tofu Penang curry; although I didn't like the curry very much, the assortment of vegetables and the tofu were good.
Tom's Place is one of the more popular spots in tiny Crowley Lake. The restaurant opens at 6 a.m., although most hikers and fishermen are already on the trails or lakes by that time. Breakfast was unremarkable but reasonably priced. At dinnertime, Tom's was pretty crowded, with lots of people in the restaurant and bar and a patio full of hungry patrons, including ourselves. There appeared to be a lot of locals from nearby Crowley Lake, Mammoth and Bishop who traveled a good distance for the Saturday Night Special prime rib. We indulged in the burgers- "The Best in Inyo County", which were delicious, as was the milkshake we split for dessert. Our friends had the prime rib dinner- which was a huge portion for $12 and tried the home made pies, which they enjoyed as well. The orange beer was pretty good, which is a stong endorsement from a non beer fan. It was a great end to a long day in the mountains
