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

Saw that this place and soft serve advertised and thought we'd give it a try. So disappointed that they don't dip ice cream or have sprinkles. My son ordered the milkshake and thought it was delicious and filling. Other people were ordering meals like hamburgers. Place smells greasy. Wouldn't want to sit inside.

We sort of make it our hobby to search out the world's best twist cones and this place has some really good ones. Went twice in two days. They tend a bit icey rather than overly creamy, which is how we prefer them.

I took my kids out to have some milkshakes. Oh my god they were to die for it not only that but they were big. My son had a burger and fries I can help myself but I also ate some of his food and it was so delicious!!!

Ate here several times during my stay, thinking it would get better and it didn't. I even tried different things on the menu every time. Staff was nice, but the food is overpriced. The thing going for this place is atmosphere and location. Other than that, keep going.

Sno-Flake was always a family tradition for our Tahoe vacays, but no more! We stopped by for our usual chocolate dip and found out they don't serve these anymore. Disappointed for sure. The food and atmosphere here was never anything special, but the huge choco dip comes made for a great reason to stop by. We won't be back. PS:... More

This place use to have great milkshakes and burgers but not this time. The meat tasted like it had freezer burn and the shakes taste like they changed ice cream and not for the better. This use to be a regular stop for us but not anymore.
