“Local BBQ with Tahoe vibe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Ultra casual local BBQ spot. This place has been in Tahoe as long as we can remember. No need to dress up or even shower after skiing - go as you are. No one will care. Service is okay at best. We go because we are craving BBQ. Looking at the place you would think prices were super cheap, but they are not. Always amazed when the bill comes by how much we spend for basic BBQ and beer. Personally I love these old, funky kind of places that have been around forever because they are not a chain and are one-of-a-kind. Also like that we can pop in right after skiing and then head back to hotel to shower and crash.

“BBQ and local history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

From the outside, Rojo's looks like a weathered dive bar. Don't let it influence your decision to eat here. It is not a dive bar. Yes, it does have a bar but is decorated based on the interesting history of the building. There is a restaurant area seperate from the bar, so it is fine for families. The menu is mainly American food and their specialty is BBQ.

“The best BBQ i have ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2011

My friend and I did not notice the dining room that was in the back so we were not going to stay. But the owner said to us "if you don't like your food, you don't have to pay for it." so we stayed. I can definitely say, it was the best food I have eaten in Tahoe. We were happy to pay for our food. The waiter was very nice and satisfied our every need. The atmosphere was beautiful, I loved the fireplace. And the food wasn't rocket high either, it was actually very reasonable compared to most places i have been.

“THE worst”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2008

If you like deli meat with BBQ sauce that comes from the generic bottle, eat here.

The absolute worst BBQ I've ever had.
