“Top-Secret Local's Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

I almost want to NOT review this place because I love going here for a quick lunch, and don't want it to get crowded! It's totally a local's spot, run by a family who has been in Tahoe for a long time. They always take good care of us, and the food is really fast, inexpensive, and good. They cook their own tortilla chips right there in front of you when you are ordering. The food is just really basic Mexican food like tacos, burritos, etc. They also have a good steak torta and the nachos are the best deal on the menu (humongous, and delicious!). This place is hard to find if you are not from Tahoe - it's located BEHIND Port o' Subs and Rojo's Bar (both of which are on Hwy. 50) - you cannot see it from the road.
