We've been coming to Lake Tahoe every year since 1996. Sno Flake Drive In has been a tradition for us to get soft serve chocolate dipped cones. Imagine our surprise when we went in and they said they no longer had them! They have the regular soft serve, just not the chocolate dip. I got the Heath Bar shake instead.... More

Stopped in for a soft-serve ice cream. Small cones are $3.50 but HUGE! Could not finish the whole cone! My companion had a $5.50 hot fudge sundae and it was also super-sized. Love this place!

It's becoming a ritual, share a burger with the kid after soccer. The combo meal is the way to go. Great location.

We always stop by the Snoflake when we have the opportunity. Many nights it is dinner for my family. If we aren't eating we stop by for a milkshake or ice cream.

I could not find anything to have here, but a lot of my local friends love it. The ice cream is old fashioned soft serve, with no healthy or sugar free options. All the food is classic fried Americana: hotdogs, hamburger, and French Fries. The style is adorable, like a 60s drive through, with a great lighted old sign.

This was simply a classic roadside joint for burgers and shakes. The burgers were very good, albeit slightly over-priced. The fries were excellent. The place was very busy the entire time we were there (on a quiet Monday night). It seems to be a local favorite.

This place has great burgers and really good fries. We had burgers, hot dogs and shakes. They say they have the best shakes but they are okay. Go for the burgers and the dogs. The staff we met were really nice even though they were busy. We went 2 times in 3 days. They are dog friendly and had dog... More

This is the absolute Best Ice Cream Parlor in Lake Tahoe. It has the best mushroom burger you have ever had. The fries are enough for two or three. I make it a point to come here when in Tahoe.Thank you!

We rent timeshare withing walking distance to Sno-flake is an advantage to us. Usually walk over once during our visit. This year we went for a meal of burgers and fries. The burger was okay, not outstanding but not bad. Somewhat dry for me. I wish they had a "cook time" option, IE. Medium. The fries were outstanding. I'm okay... More

The burgers here were splendid. Unique combos with the right amount of creativity, flavor and quality. The ice cream treat were on point and just what you expect and remember from an old school drive in. Now they are serving beer so you can wash down your spicy fires with some suds. The food is more than worth the modest... More
