Great sandwiches. They serve very good coffee and have a very nice outside eating area with a small view of the lake. The store is well stocked with foods for hiking and picnics.

Obexters has the best BLT and Albacore Tuna Sandwich I've ever had. The bacon is brown sugar coated to make it top notch. Great selection of beer and drinks as well.

We loved the breakfast options and were so pleased with all the options this store had! Perfect for picnics by the beach and anything you might need to pick up on during your stay!

Super great sandwiches, and the Bloody Mary that is outrageously great for a Deli. dog friendly, clean, right on the pier with a view of east Tahoe!

Great breakfast burrito! I ate half for breakfast and the other for lunch. The 'cook' wrapped each half separately which really helped.

If you passing through the west shore of Lake Tahoe and need a picnic lunch, this is a great spot to stop for a sandwich to take to the beach. You can eat in or out or walk 100 yards, near the boat launch to the beach and enjoy your sandwich or beer on beautiful Lake Tahoe.

I wasn't even particularly hungry when we stopped at Obexer's, but I'm so happy I forced myself to order a sandwich. I had turkey with cranberry, cream cheese, walnuts, and lettuce on the softest, freshest bun ever. My companions had the fresh tuna sandwich and the seafood salad and said they were great. The store is interesting to see. Obexer's... More

It's summer, with limit time for road repairs, it as common as longer days! You got it, road construction with one lane traffic. We left the vikingholm site and headed north purposely to try out the sandwiches mentioned by other reviewers. Sadly, east coast deli's have it all over any west offering that we have had to date.

This great little market manages to have everything you might need! They have souvenirs, snacks, a nice deli & grill, beer, wine, even DIY milkshakes. They have toothbrushes & ointments & anything you forgot at home as well! We bought a delicious roast beef panini with grilled onions & horseradish mustard.
