“Big burgers at a courtyard picnic table”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

I thought it was a good burger, not the best you ever had, but good, and certainly a good value compared to all the other high-priced restaurants here at Tahoe. The fries were hot and fresh, but just okay. The kids loved the root beer float made with a large serving of soft ice cream on top. Best thing was to eat behind the restaurant on a courtyard patio of umbrellaed picnic tables on a lovely afternoon.

“Sooo Goood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Onion Orgy! Nice local place. Big burgers. Reasonably priced. The onion rings are terrific and so are the shakes. We went several times over our vacation.

“Lived up to the hype!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

We were taking one of those scenic drives around the Lake on a Saturday. We by-passed the crowded places in South Tahoe and came across Izzy's. We loved the atmosphere and the people. The burgers were great, extra napkins are needed. Not sure when I will be through the area again but when I do, this will be a stop.

“Outstanding Local Burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

One of my rules for travel is not to eat in the same restaurant I could eat in at home (i.e. chains). The more local flair, the better, Izzy's meets this to a tee. It's very much a small, family owned burger place, but the atmosphere and food quality are fantastic. Great food and lots of it, for a fair price. Definitely worth checking out.

“Best Burgers in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

We go there every chance we get. First went there back in the day. A long time. Just found out it was sold in 2006. Keep the good burger Spirits follks. I have never had a bad burger there. You need to go here to cure the hangover with a HUGE burger that will satisfy. Can't wait to see you.
