I really like the outdoor seating behind the Izzy's, it's cool and breezy and you can breath that fresh forest air. The food is usually good, nice and fresh, grilled to order. All goes well with nice cold beer. The place is a bit cramped inside and that may be a bit of nuisance in the winter, but for the... More

We like to consult TripAdvisor for restaurants when traveling and avoid the chains that we can get anywhere. Unfortunately, we were unable to get cellular data when passing through Lake Tahoe at lunchtime. We had to rely on instinct and luck. At Izzy's, luck was on our side. We noticed several burger shacks in town, but when we passed Izzy's,... More

Just a whole in the wall on the side of the road driving in towards stateline. But the burgers are really outstanding. Their char broiler is epic! Plus the seating area outside in the back is very cool and casual. I am a burger guy but my wife could usually take them or leave them. She loved the ones at... More

We don't eat hamburgers very often but a friend recommended Izzy's so we decided to give it a try. WOW - we had the mushroom Swiss burger and the frings (fries & onion rings) and they were wonderful. The burger was juicy and very flavorful and the fries and onions rings were crispy and tasty. This has now become a... More

My husband got the bacon cheeseburger. He liked it. I got the chilli dog. It must be eaten with a fork. It was good. Nothing special. Fries and onion rings were ok. We were in the mood for that type of food that night, so we weren't expecting much, but don't think it was as good as we were hoping... More

California burger, Izzy special and bacon cheeseburger were our choices. All were great. Comes with relish so if you don't want relish, ask to take that odd. Great service, great value fun local atmosphere.

The two of us each had a burger, fries,and a drink. I had a shake he had tea...total was about $30. I would have been happy to pay it if there had been anything spectacular about the burger. Sadly, there wasn't . The shake was slightly sub par too. I think for the price, we will make our own at... More

Workers were nice, food was way too charbroiled, almost burnt. Sent one burger back it was inedible, they brought another, not much better. We do not usually eat fast food, saw a lot of people there, thought it might be good. It was very average, prices were good, people were nice. just not into the food. Great for young people.

The quality of the food has gone downhill: They're now using cheap meat for their burgers. The fries and rings are greasy, greasy, greasy - and the oil they fry them in tastes like it hasn't been changed in days. The worst part was that they used nasty soft-serve instead ice cream for their shakes, and totally skimped on the... More
