Good food but always a long wait

Seems like everyone stops here going to/from the Bay Area and Tahoe. The parking lot is always full. The restaurant section has good burgers and basic items in a cafeteria type setting. The staff is friendly, if a bit rushed due to crowds. The dining area and tables could be cleaner. I have... read more

One of the nice resting stops along Interstate 80 traveling from San Francisco to Reno is just east of Auburn. Take the foresthill exit and stop in for delightful burgers and wonderful, freshly home-made pies. Outstanding

My husband and I often stop at Ikeda's for market and after reading glowing reviews on the restaurant and decided to give it a try. As other reviewers said it was a long wait and difficult to find a place to sit. The burger and fries were average nothing to go out of your way to try. We will go... More

Best hamburgers and fries, using the freshest meat and service is very quick for those pulling off the road enroute to/from the mountains. Love the fresh seasonal pies and while we wait for our burgers, we have appetizers by tasting the various dips and spreads available to try in the grocery section. Fresh and dried produce are excellent - a... More

Great place to pick up a hamburger but the real find is the small market attached with fresh fruit, homemade pies and wonderful food in every corner. Can't make a trip up to Tahoe without stopping. It is located on interstate 80, worth the short detour to stock up on the great fare.

Ikeda's is a farmers market & restaurant all in one. Located just outside Auburn, it's a great pit stop on your way to or from Reno or Lake Tahoe. The burgers are delicious & they also have a good chicken teriyaki sandwich. This is a bustling place & often crowded, although they get the food out to you fairly quickly.... More

Ikeada's has a fruit/produce/bakery stand plus a restaurant. This is the place to stop in for a quick snack or pick up produce for a picnic. The pies's are excellent. Just skip the ice cream topping as it is soft serve. I love the seasonal variety. Next time i am going to try the hamburgers.

I was celebrating my birthday but did not want the traditional cake. I requested a small pie from Ikeda's. It's more reasonably priced and it has four generous portions. It was the perfect way to celebrate. If you are travelling to Tahoe or Reno, stop at the Foresthill Exit from I80 East or West for one of their Tasty Burgers,... More
