Yes the Habanero and brisket jerkies cost $40 a pound (which is why it is priced by the ounce)...but it is the first time I have ever loved jerky...the pineapple flavoring and smoke and burn in the case of the habanero are delicious...so good.
The sandwiches were the stars...it takes a bit to get one if you don't order ahead, but they make them from around 6 am on so you can take one up into Yosemite and enjoy it later. They are a bargain starting at $7.50...but we ordered the double meat and hot ones which are a touch more...and of course EXTRA bacon....the roast beef and the hot ham/bacon/cheese ones were so good we ordered one for dinner and the next day returned to take them to the park. The ladies put all the messy stuff on the side so they wouldn't be soggy and mmmm, they were just great. The potato salad is really excellent as well...We wanted to try other places in town, but we could not bring ourselves to try anything else.

In a nutshell: The food is average (we ordered the "Rodeo" with roast beef, bacon, pepperjack, etc.) the atmosphere is pretty much non-existent, the service is not exactly rude, but you can tell the workers could care less about visitors as there is no greeting, no thank-you, no nothing, just a "what do you want" followed up by the price. They did interact with their regulars but treated the visitors as if they were just a nuisance. They actually don't have a huge smoked meat selection and outside of a few different types of sausages, the meat case is nothing to write home about (mostly repackaged cold-cuts they have put together as snack packs). Lastly, the bathrooms are in a separate building all the way across the parking lot and are disgusting. I didn't want my kids to even use them. We go back and forth to Mammoth a few times a year and won't bother stopping here again.

Best Jerky ever. Service is fantastic and the quality is uncomparable. The Jerky stays fresh for quite awhile if you can keep it around more than a day or 2. ha ha

They have some of the best smoked meat I have ever eaten. A little pricey but worth the treat for the few times you will ever travle through Bishop. They open early - I think 5:00AM.

Great sandwiches made from fresh sliced smoked meats. Plenty of meat on these sandwiches. Comes with potato salad and a pickle slice. They make wonderful breakfast burritos. And the selection of smoked jerky is great.
