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.

This place is a local icon, it has been around since my dad was a kid. All their food is good and so are their milkshakes!

We ordered the Zucchini sticks and they were under cooked and tasted like they were cooked in fish grease. We ordered a milk shake and all it was like getting a quart of ice cream instead WAY OVER PRICED.. Terrible food.

We were excited to see an old fashioned hamburger diner with lots of people eating outside. I wanted to have a nice lunch & enjoy the place. We're on Tahoe time, our order of two hamburger & fries took over 20 minutes. We were patient & when our order came it was cold. The cheese on the cheese burger wasn't... More

Great vintage 50's vibe, fabulous burgers, fries and milkshakes. There is an extensive menu. You get a lot of food for your money here - a large fries is more like "family size" and the small fries size is enough for two people. The onion rings are real, sliced and battered onions, not the pressed onion rings that many places... More

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!
