San Luis Obispo
Does any one have any suggestions for spots for a quick bite to eat or attractions to see along the way to Mammoth? This will be my bf and I's very first time driving that route! We'll definitely need something to eat, but if there's anything worthwhile to see, we'd love to stop off.
It will also be our first time in Mammoth, so anything to do around there would be great, too.
Burgers Restaurant is my favorite lunch spot in town. Great burgers, but the turkey sandwich with bbq sauce to dip may be my favorite. A buddy's dad who used to be a ski host at Mammoth would go here for lunch, then take a shuttle or the gondola in the Village (which is right across the street) back up to the mountain. Now that is a veteran move.
Convict Lake Resort in Mammoth Lake has another great restaurant. Haven't stayed there, but the restaurant is one of the best restaurants anywhere. Special occasion kind of place. 1/2 hour outside fo town, beautiful setting on convict lake.
Petra's Cafe is another great place for a nice meal. Its a wine bar too, so great wine selection.
Lakanuki is a nice apres ski or hike option in the Village. The kitcshy Polynesian theme really works in a ski resort for some reason.
Whoa Nellie Deli isn't in Mammoth, but a little north of it in the gas station in Lee Vining. Great food and great fun, having a quality meal at a gas station. If you're making a scenic drive up the 395, definitely stop in.
