After spending the entire summer Yosemite, I too had many occasions to sample the “hot food” menu at Tuolumne grill and must agree that their offerings truly suck. They pre-cook the burger patties in the morning and re-heat during the day as ordered…fast cooking for the unending tourist masses but…
Breakfasts – pancakes, potatoes always come out cold…just not “Good Eats”.
After much sampling of the Store victuals, discovered the frozen chicken & cheese burritos ($2.40 – blue package - microwave) worked out very well for a hot breakfast.
Thankfully Tuolumne store does offer a great selection of IPAs, a decent wine selection, salsa and tortilla chips, Pepperidge Farm cookies too. Strange also that the Tuolumne Store does not carry any powdered drink mixes - no Crystal-lite.
The only thing worth a lick at the Tuolumne grill is the soft-ice-cream cones…$2.25.

I was in there again this past weekend and I almost couldn't eat my brisket sandwich it was so foul. I'll probably try to go there one more time for the tie breaker.
Stopped in here last month (while Russ and Paul opted for the Carls Jr next door…guess no accounting for taste).
The Tri-tip hoagie was great…they also offer a nice sampler platter of good BBQ favorites, smelled great but, beware; he service was so slow…
However, I too would go back here again, for at least one more discerning sampling.
Maybe we should start a new thread of what are the best things to order at some these frequently visited, after-hike, Sierra establishments (with our beer).
