Very good eggs, chorizo sausage patties (nice and spicy), and hash browns. We had a table with 10 family members and service was very good for a full restaurant. Our waitress kept the coffee coming and we all had a good time. Prices on par with other breakfast places. No complaints around the table. Will go again.

The Usual is a must! The mushroom burger was a smash and we came out from the east Bay Area...so we know good stuff when we have it. A must visit during a visit to South Lake Tahoe!

There are 2 Red Hut Cafes on US 50. I am reviewing the newer restaurant and soda fountain on US 50 in South Lake Tahoe. We ate breakfast there twice so you know we liked it. The choices range from "The Usual" with eggs, hash browns and a biscuit and gravy for $5.99 to the more expensive breakfast fare. Everything... More

This place came with very positive praise to me. Numerous people have told me it's the place to go for breakfast. Walked from the Casino down the street. Place was busy on a Monday morning. Sat at the counter. Waitress was prompt and very friendly. For as busy as the place was food came out in a very timely manner.... More

Food is great, portions were plenty. Our waitress was so cool!! She treated us like family, even took a selfie with the kids. They fell in love with her.

We made this our stop for lunch and was delightfully surprised. As this was our first visit we did not know what to expect. Greeted with a friendly smile and quickly seated. The menu is set up mostly for breakfast but offered selections for lunch also. Our lunch was served quickly and with a smile. Noticed that there was an... More

It's a pretty small place and from the outside it doesn't look like much, but it is awesome! The food is delicious and the service is great. Everything is very reasonably priced and the portions are huge. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Lake Tahoe.

I've been coming up to Tahoe ever since I can remember (since the 70's). I've passed by this original Red Hut for that long and I've never stopped. We've been going to another popular breakfast location ever since I can remember. Today, that place had no power so we decided to go to the Red Hut. Small hole in the... More

Went for a drive to Lake Tahoe for the day and decided to stop at the spot for dinner before heading to the casino. The food was very mediocre but acceptable. The total was $36 and I used my MasterCard and wrote in a $10 tip along with the total amount of $46. Today I log into my account and... More

We ate breakfast here on Halloween. The Eggs Boo-na-dict were ok. Sauce was not the best. The other in our party had an omelet and it was wonderful. People at all tables seemed to be greatly enjoying themselves. We were in Tahoe three days and had breakfast at Heidi's twice and the Red Hut once. You will not go wrong... More
