After a horrible dinner from a restaurant up the street and a horrible continental breakfast, this place did not disappoint for lunch. I was glad cause I was starving! Free wifi is a huge bonus since reception is spotty. Kids enjoyed their food too! Would def stop again here! The milkshake coffee drink is to die for!!!!!!!

We ate here 12/15 and had 3 delicious burgers, fries and a chocolate shake. Our Elf on the Shelf even enjoyed the visit! Neato old pictures and clipping and posters on the walls to look at as well. This is a pretty cool place to stop for a bite to eat as you travel up CA49.

We had a party of 10 and there were other large groups there ahead of us so the wait for food was 40 minutes. Huge menu, classic diner food plus Mexican food offerings. Friendly service and fun while you wait, including pinball, air hockey and other arcade games. Food was good and great place for the family.

Old style diner with hard plastic seating. Food was ok, my burger and fries were good but boyfriend bit disappointed with his meal. Cheap beer, good milkshakes and good value. No one else there when we visited and felt bit uncomfortable. Huge menu with lots of vegan/veg options.

The Happy Burger diner has a very large menu with options for almost everyone and a large selection of sodas. The staff are very friendly and the customer service is excellent.

Any place that has tator tots with cheese on the menu is ok by me. I also love diner style burgers- emphasis on the meat, with no giant bun to distract from it. Fun environment with arcade games and old records decorating the walls.

Nothing fancy here. Pretty standard stuff-burgers and sandwiches-but well prepared, to order, so it's hot and fresh. Fair prices. Decent portions. Exactly what I was looking for.

We ate here while vacationing in the area and it was by far the best place we have been to in Mariposa. The previous night we had eaten at 1850, and don't get me wrong, it was nice, but not budget friendly. We came to Happy Burger the next night and wished we would've gone there instead of 1850 the...
