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 :)

We got milkshakes from here on our way out of Lake Tahoe. They were so good and have many flavor options to choose from. We tried chocolate, chocolate peanut butter, and Heath and they were all delicious! Definitely recommend their milkshakes!!

We had a party of more than 15 including kids, and even though the place looks small and it was packed, we still managed to find a table for everyone! The service was friendly and the food was delicious. The garlic fries are very good, but what I really liked was a spicy chicken sandwich that my brother in law... More

We love Sno Flake Drive-In. They have the classic hamburgers and fries along with awesome shakes including flavors like Boysenberry. Their hot dogs are the best and they offer unusual items like Pesto Fries. Great for kids and especially if just left the beach and in swimsuits then Sno Flake is the place to stop for a bite. We'll be... More

...vintage decor, and burgers that are unlike the fast food/corporate/tasteless things you find at the chains. I like the mid-century architecture and sign, too.

Looks like it is straight out of the 50s. We only had ice cream, but the burgers looked good. The couple sitting next to us raved about the shakes and the curly fires that they ordered looked fabulous
