Where to eat in Oakdale

If you're traveling to Yosemite via the Big Oak Flat entrance station and Highway 120, there are not a lot of good options for food.  We've written before about the Old Priest Grade Café, and we've also eaten heavy but tasty Mexican meals at the Cocina Michoacana restaurant in Groveland. 

But if you want something closer to Oakdale, we've found a very nice alternative--in a very unimpressive Grocery Outlet shopping center just west of town.  Go figure!

Pho 38 is a Vietnamese restaurant specializing in noodle dishes, and they are delicious.  It's a family restaurant in the most basic sense--I don't think they have any employees who aren't part of the family, and we've been waited on by Mom, Dad, and at least one of the young kids.

The last time we ate there our bill was about $20 including tax.  And we were in and back out on the road in about 30 minutes.  And the food was yummy.   Hard to beat that.

We've eaten here three times, and always enjoyed it!
