- Tioga Gas and Gift Mart, 22 Vista Road (just off SR120 about a quarter mile west (uphill) of US395), (760) 647-1088. . Open from the end of April through November 1. One of the most unexpected places in Lee Vining is this gourmet restaurant in a small town gas station. Do not fail to eat here at least once; it is that good.
