Chili Fries with the Locals?

Locals love this joynt -- and for good reason. It is cheap. It is friendly. It serves good food and cheap, cold beer. Come for the pub food and "Cheers" atmosphere. Sit with the contractors and tradespeople to enjoy your delicious chilli fries.

Lovely food. Very helpful staff. They only served one size beer and I wanted a small one so they suggested my husband and I share. They suggested the same for our meal. This was more than adequate for us and saved us a lot of money.

We stopped here for a quick bite on our way through. Service was good, meal cane quickly and was tasty. We sat outside which was pleasant. There were a few bikers stopped for a drink and a bunch of locals inside. Easy relaxed atmosphere and a tasty burger.

We usually stop for a couple beers while visiting. It's a bar but a nice casual sitting area outside to eat or drink. Usually a good selection and reg bar food that was average.

When first moving to Tahoe this was my go to bar, I ate once a day, and whenever I went out this was my spot. Now that I'm closer to stateliness I don't go as often. But the food is great, I've never had a bad meal and I think Ive had almost everything on the menu. Breakfast until 2... More

If you like the way it looks on the outside, you'll be happy when you get to the inside. No overpriced drinks. Just happy people getting out of the house for a few drinks and a few laughs. Great place to destress.

It looked to be a cozy little spot to grab a bite, but we were anything but cozy. We sat outside, only one family was there aside from us. We placed our order within the first 10 minutes of being there, waited over an hour, watched a whole other family (who arrived about 30 minutes after us) get their food... More

I liked the outdoor seating, but also the cozy bar. We had the New York steak and eggs, and a jack and coke, the steak had excellent flavor especially for a breakfast steak, it said 8 Oz but seemed to be more. And my drink was perfect. Friendly team-oriented staff. The bartender has been there for 27 years, but be... More

Very good service, friendly and food was good. Nice outdoor seating, clean. The table next to us should have put a hat on the little baby. Was sunny and warm but comfortable tables with umbrellas.
