Tioga Gas Mart & Whoa Nellie Deli

The Tioga Gas Mart and Whoa Nellie Deli is a Mobil gas station and restaurant located at the bottom of Tioga Pass at the corner of CA highway 395 and highway 120 in Lee Vining, CA. From the outside it appears to be just another gas station, however, this is not your typical travel one-stop-shop. The Whoa Nellie Deli is nestled just below Tioga Pass and minutes from Mono Lake providing easy access to Yosemite Valley, and breathtaking views of Mono Lake and the Eastern Sierra Nevada.

Not only is the Whoa Nellie a convenient gas station for travelers, inside is a one of a kind restaurant offering a unique menu including a pancake breakfast, ahi sashimi, wild buffalo meatloaf, sandwiches, and pizza, to name a few (in a gas station!). If you're in the area during summer (weather depending) you can even grab some food and listen to live music.

The Tioga Gas Mart & Whoa Nellie Deli truly is a unique staple to the Eastern Sierra and is a must for travelers and lovers of the Sierra Nevada.
