    Whiskey Creek: Good Restaurant & Beer

    by WulfstanTraveller Updated Feb 13, 2007

    This is a good take on the basic american restaurant, with emphasis on steaks and similar meat dishes. One can find pastas, taco salads, and what not, but I think that the best food is found among the steaks, arbecue food, sandwiches, etc. They also have a pretty good children's menu. Over all, the quality of food and preparation are significantly higher than what one typically finds at places serving similar food.

    This place also has a great selection of beers from the local Mammoth Brewing Co., which tend to be good. However, they do not seem to have a written menu of the beers and the servers have not been helpful in naming them I had to choose to see if they had what I was looking for and fortunately, they did.

    Rather tied to the unhelpfulness regarding the beer selection, the service here tends to be a bit spotty. It's not bad, and doesn't really impair the experience much, but the staff do not seem to make much effort to be very communicative.

    Prices do tend to be slightly high for the amount of food one gets, but not to much and this is a major tourist trail and there are not many places to choose from.

    Favorite Dish: The steak sandwich is very good and we have had good steak and some other good sandwiches.

    Address: 524 North Main Street, Bishop

    Directions: It's on Main Street in downtown Bishop. Closer to the northern part of town, it is on the east side of the street and is easy to spot.

    Whoa Nellie Deli: A gourmet meal at the Mobil Gas Station

    by BLewJay Written Sep 22, 2006

    So, you think this is just a greasy spoon at a gas station...well you had better think again. If you are driving up Hwy. 395 and you happen to be hungry around Mono Lake, then you should stop in for a bite to eat (breakfast, lunch or dinner) at the Whoa Nellie Deli (in the Mobil Tioga Gas & Gift Shop). The restaurant has been talked about in newspapers around the U.S...from the New York Times to the San Diego Tribune. The chef...Matt Toomey...has found a home in the middle of nowhere and the food is worth the stop.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered the Tioga Egg Sandwich (huge portion of egg, bacon and cheese on a buttery croissant) with a side of Tioga Taters.

    Address: 22 Vista Point Road

    Directions: Located just south of the town of Lee Vining (about an hour north of Bishop).

    The Black Sheep at Spellbinder Books: Best coffee in town

    by tomatohead Updated Jan 5, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These folks really care about their grounds (they roast their own) and leaves and serve a lovely cup of coffee or tea.

    You can get a scone, roll, smoothie, or Italian soda while you're at it, too.

    You can chat up the locals or you can peruse the great books up front.

    Wifi access.

    Favorite Dish: Double Cappucino. The only place for hundreds of miles where "burnt and nasty" aren't considered acceptable espresso flavors. Starbucks has done such a disservice to train our American tastebuds that way.....Espresso drinks in the Northern Italian style.

    Address: 124 S. Main Street

    Directions: Next door to Galen Rowell's Mountain Light Gallery.

    You can park in back.

    Denny's: Delicious breakfast

    by BLewJay Updated Sep 9, 2005

    Again, not spending a lot of time in Bishop, we wanted something good and hearty (as we had to drive up to Lake Tahoe). The softball team met at Denny's and the service was very good along with the food.

    Favorite Dish: For dinner, I had the Bacon Cheddar Burger (a classic burger topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onions and served with french fries). For the times we've eaten breakfast there, we split the Two-Egg Breakfast (two scrambled eggs served with two bacon strips, two sausage links, hash browns and wheat toast) and the Sausage Sampler (two sausage patties, two sausage links, two eggs, hash browns and three fluffy pancakes).

    Address: 1014 North Main Street (Hwy. 395)

    Directions: Located next to the Vagabond Inn and KFC.

    Jack in the Box: Eating healthy

    by BLewJay Updated Sep 13, 2004

    Let me start off by saying that there are quite a few places to eat in Bishop, but since we arrived late in the evening, we didn't have to many choices.

    Jack in the Box was open, so we stopped in for a bite to eat. Not sure what the problem was, but service was extremely slow (we ended up spending 30 minutes in the drive-thru/store waiting for our meal). But in the end, we thoroughly enjoyed our selection.

    Favorite Dish: We had the Southwest Chicken Salad (lettuce, grilled chicken, tomatoes, cheese, beans, corn and spicy ranch dressing).

    Address: 575 South Main Street

    Directions: Located at the south entrance to the city (on Hwy. 395).

    Airport Cafe: It's not THAT greasy

    by tomatohead Written Apr 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Airport Cafe is one of the better places to catch a fry up for breakky because it won't leave you as queasy and as broke as the other options in town.

    Plus, it's fun to catch all the pilots of small planes cheating death.

    Favorite Dish: two pork sausages (they they are almost like chipolatas and not the wee brown salty things you find at most diners), two eggs, hash browns (grated fresh from the potato) -extra crispy, AND biscuits in white gravy with bits of real HAM!

    all the coffeeshop Farmers' Bros. coffee you can down

    and orange juice

    Address: Bishop Airport

    Directions: East on East Line Street for about 2 miles, then a left at the Airport Road. At the spiffy new airport "complex"

    Rock Creek Lakes Resort: Pie, pie, pie in the sky

    by tomatohead Updated Oct 29, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place, on the road to the Rock Creek Trail head, just opposite the Lake, is a bit of a time warp.

    Along your pie and burger, you can get power bait, fishing tips, and a cabin.

    Come early, or you'll miss out on your slice o' pie. It doesn't even hurt to place your order when you sit down.

    Favorite Dish: each and every slice of pie.

    I don't even usually like cream pies, but the fresh ingredients and the interesting flavors make them a winner here.

    Coffee is great, too, for coffee shop-style coffee.

    Address: Rock Creek Lakes Resort

    Directions: The one on the right hand side of the road as you are heading up, just below the pack station

    Phone: 760-935-4311

    Taqueria Las Palmas: Chips and salsa bar extraordinaire!

    by tomatohead Updated Sep 12, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place where we end up most of the time.
    The chips and salsa are fresh. Burritos are big.
    The carnitas isn't the real deal, but it will do.

    The diorama decor in the smaller dining room is great fun.

    It's a bit of a hole in the wall, but it suits our town's personality well.

    Favorite Dish: Carnitas Buffalo Burrito and a Mexican lager, just what you need after a long day of being out.

    Vegetarians can opt for the Chile Rellenos Burrito - go for the whole beans, though.

    The beans and rice aren't sitting underneath a layer of orange grease, but vegies beware, they are made with a bit of yummy lard

    Address: 136 East Line Street

    Directions: Behind the Galen Rowell Mountain Light Gallery

    Phone: 760-873-4337
