Right in the middle of construction zone

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... read more

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.

If you're not in a hurry, the roast beef Panini and the BLT here are worth the trip. I am not a sandwich type but these were on my top 10 list. The service leaves much to be desired, however. With two people behind in the deli counter, Service was painfully slow. putting in an order was a challenge. If... More

Obexer’s has been listed on a website for dog-friendly cafes, restaurants and dog beaches around Lake Tahoe, but it really isn’t too good from that perspective. Obexer’s is primarily a boat ramp and General Store, with a small patio out back where dogs and owners may eat (the deli in the general store is quite good, although pricey. Kaleb’s Club... More

Great sandwiches here - perfect to pick up before a trip to the beach or a hike. Had a BLT with the best bacon I have ever had!

We were driving around the entire lake Tahoe and stopping at various places along the route. Obexer's is a great general store and the food they prepare is good and quick. The people are very friendly and they have great milkshakes.

We had lunch on a Thursday and it was a pleasant setting for a couple of good sandwiches. Considering the prices everywhere else along the lake, this place was quite a bargain. Better than average sandwiches.

This is a very little market on the Northwest Shore of Lake Tahoe. The market is pretty small, more like an AM/PM, and they have a deli counter. The sandwiches there are only okay, but they have a huge selection. The ordering and paying are problematic. We gave up one time and left. On weekends they have had an outside... More

A quick sandwich while we whipped the boat in and out. Darn good sandwich, local draft beer (no indulging while boating!), and a friendly, attentive staff that had us on and off the boat in no time. A Homewood treasure!
