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.

We enjoy trying out small hamburger/diner type places. I noted that the previous reviews were pretty mixed, but we decided to try it, since we were camping right across the road. I ordered the cheeseburger and my wife ordered the grilled chicken sandwich. We split a large drink and large french fry. The total came to just under $20.00, so... More

Great soft serve ice cream, except that they stopped offering chocolate shell dip last week, and permanently. Bring it back! A 'kids' cone is huge by the way, and the 'small' cone was more than enough for my wife and I to share.

This place is a local icon, it has been around since my dad was a kid. All their food is good and so are their milkshakes!

We ordered the Zucchini sticks and they were under cooked and tasted like they were cooked in fish grease. We ordered a milk shake and all it was like getting a quart of ice cream instead WAY OVER PRICED.. Terrible food.

We were excited to see an old fashioned hamburger diner with lots of people eating outside. I wanted to have a nice lunch & enjoy the place. We're on Tahoe time, our order of two hamburger & fries took over 20 minutes. We were patient & when our order came it was cold. The cheese on the cheese burger wasn't... More

Great vintage 50's vibe, fabulous burgers, fries and milkshakes. There is an extensive menu. You get a lot of food for your money here - a large fries is more like "family size" and the small fries size is enough for two people. The onion rings are real, sliced and battered onions, not the pressed onion rings that many places... More
