Good shakes

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... read more

The food here was good, but as expected. The shakes were very good and I recommend you stop by if you are looking for a milkshake. Otherwise the burger and fries were pretty standard and the flavor was ok.

Got the Lupe burger (w/green chilies); very good. Ordered a small garlic fries---it was huge and good! Chocolate shake was good, but not great.

It's up for sale and probably needs an energetic young group of owners to step up and restore it to what it once was. The ice cream had the consistency of ice milk...that's an indication that the mix was allowed to thaw and then was re-frozen. Yuck. I ate it anyway but wouldn't bother returning until I see that it... More

So we stopped in here while coming through town and were just looking for a snack and one of the famous milkshakes. The shake was OK nothing special and certainly overpriced for what we received. I like my shakes thick and it was too runny for me. We also ordered the garlic fries which I was pleasantly surprised by the... More

Good, old fashioned diner with excellent ice cream. We only got the ice cream, but we will try the food when we go back to Tahoe.

WOW! Highly impressed with the ice cream cones here! Ordered a small cone and it was piled at least 3 inches high! Yes, that was a small! Saw a killer looking sundae come out before my order, piled high with ice cream and tons of whipped cream & nuts. Over the top portions make it well worth the price!

We stopped here for a late lunch and were happy we did. We split chili cheese fries and a cheeseburger. The burger had mushrooms and grilled onions and hit the spot. Chili cheese fries were delicious but way too much. Avlitvifvlocalscwetevtgerevirdeting shakes. We will have to go back to try them later :)
