Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We took our food to go as we were so wiped out from hiking. The staff were so sweet and kind. We ordered the ribs which were ridiculously good and so tender. The waiter made sure we had our salad bar and soup to go...with it. Also very tasty. The atmosphere is classic American bar vibe where everyone knows everyone. Smells kinda funny and like old smoking bars of the 70’s so outside is a nice place to sit if that bothers you. A delightful surprise in this tiny town. We will be visiting again before we leave the areaMore

I actually really enjoyed it here. Basic burger and bbq menu with some creative options but everything was good and you have a nice view (from the outdoor patio) of the center of town.

Friendly, quick service. Tasty burgers with great cole slaw. Sit outside on the deck and enjoy the view of Mono Lake in the distance.

Probably the busiest eating place while we were there but we were seated straight away and were attended to quickly. Food is basic but tasty and plentiful. You can have soup, salad and main course for a decent price. Beer choice was fine. We ate...in the restaurant part but there is a separate bar area.More

We stopped here for a quick meal whilst staying in Lee Vining and were tempted with American BBQ food. Our food was plentiful and tasty. The burgers were not quite of the quality we expected, but the ribs were nice although a little cold.

Our family of five was hungry when we stopped at Bodie Mike's and we weren't disappointed. The food was great and price was reasonable. We ordered a couple of burgers and a pulled pork sandwich. Definitely would go back.

Stopped for lunch, place wasn’t busy, ordered hamburger and chili... what a waste of our time. Chili was more like bowl of canned sloppy joe and came out cold in the center... had to send it back for another shot in the microwave... burger came...with lettuce that was wilted and turning black on the edges (just don’t send lettuce out if it’s gone bad) and was dry and tasteless on a cold kinda stale bun. Steak fries were only thing that was really hot and tasted ok. Keep driving! This place was the worst meal on our trip :(More

I think I ordered incorrectly. The ribs actually looked fine somebody else got them: they walked by. My food just doesn't allow me to give it more than 2 Stars. my chili was bland and not hot, my wife said her Burger was bland and...not terrible. It has been a long road trip, this is the worst meal we've had in two weeks.More

Stopped in for dinner last Sunday afternoon. We were a party of 5 adults and 1 toddler. They have a nice outdoor patio as well as an inside dining area. There is also an adjacent room which is a bar with several TVs. This is...a BBQ place so most of the menu is for BBQ type foods: ribs, steaks, burgers, etc. I had the 1/2 rack of baby back ribs. Other dinners in our party were top sirloin steak, beef rib plate, and a tri-tip sandwich, and one I don't remember. The steak and rib plates came with either fries or baked potatoes, corn on the cob, and an all you can eat salad bar. Everyone's main course was good. The salad bar was fully stocked with various items and all were fresh. Oh, the dinners also came with soup at the salad bar but none of us tried it (chicken noodle that day). The only problems with the meals were: the corn on the cob was small and obviously of the frozen variety, not fresh. None of us ate the corn; and, one of the dressings at the salad bar was mislabeled, so a whole plate of salad went to waste when the wrong dressing was used. The staff was exceptionally friendly and prompt to respond to requests for more drinks, water, napkins, etc. They also had a high chair for the toddler. The menu has a small selection of kid's meals, of which we had a chicken nuggets order for the little guy. Overall, we all enjoyed our meals and will undoubtedly return as we frequent the Lee Vining area several times a year. Prices are slightly high but then again, this is small town tourist area in the Sierra's and prices for everything are a bit higher than at home. Give 'em a try some time, it's a good place.More

Would expect the same, at least till 9/9:30 pm, but why not asking directly at the restaurant?
