MILKSHAKE'S a Must!

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... read 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. Onion rings... More

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

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.

We stop here thru out the summer for ice cream. Our kids enjoy the fries. Close to the beach, on the main hwy 50. It's been a favorite of my kids , now my grandkids.

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
