Great Hamburgers - not so great service

Went to Snowflake Drive In for lunch. The hamburgers are fantastic and the fries...what can I say other than awesome. The service, however, was less than stellar and very unorganized.

I've been eating burgers here for years, and I think they've gotten better than they used to be. Not much room for sitting down but it's definitely worth it to wait for a spot. Great family place and not expensive for Lake Tahoe

Maybe it is a local tradition, but we didn't think it was all that. I am not saying it was bad, just an average burger place. The staff was very nice, although they were busy.

We finally went to this place this summer. Really good food in an old fashioned drive-in setting. Burgers, chicken sandwiches, shakes and fries are just some of the items on the menu. Great place for families. Service can be sllloooowww because of the crowds. Be patient. It's worth it!

It's a cool little turquoise shack along Lake Tahoe Blvd with a few picnic benches up front and tables inside. We had the burgers and they were ok, but nothing great (at least for the price). It felt like they didn't bother adding salt and pepper which is a food prep staple. The milkshakes were DELICIOUS! It's more than enough... More

This is a small, popular burger shack. The burgers, fries, and shakes are all very good. Very few tables inside and three picnic tables outside. Very affordable as well.

This is the greasiest greasy spot at the Lake. If you have to travel more than two blocks after consuming this food-wear adult diapers. The "new management" has jacked up the prices and made the food worse than ever. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is served with every purchase. Do not order anything but a milkshake at your own risk.

Just walked there from our hotel, prices are fine, burger was okay, nothing amazing, but the onion rings weren't half bad... Fries were a little under cooked for my liking, I like them crispy ( I tried the garlic ones). But the shakes were good, chunky and tasted like ice cream. I would go there again for a shake. Probably... More
