“Tasty burgers, go crazy with toppings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

I've lived in Lake Tahoe for many months but this was my first time eating at the Burger Spa. I ordered a mushroom swiss burger and then put bacon, avocado and sauteed onions on top and it was INCREDIBLE! The flavor was explosive, the bun was quality bread, and I was left completely satisfied. They also have the option to order a half basket of onion rings and french fries, alleviating that age-old dilemma. If you like burgers then you should swing by!

“Nice little burger joint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

We were traveling with our family which includes a couple teens and young child. We wanted something easy and inexpensive. I came across some good reviews for this place and decided to give it a try. When we arrived, there was a line and we were concerned we wouldn't find seating. However, there is some seating indoors where you order as well as a large patio area with several tables. We grabbed a table outdoor. We ordered hotdogs, onion rings and various burgers. Everything was very good. The service was very quick too (despite being busy). We would definitely come back!!!

“Nothing spa like but the burgers were very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Our family went to Izzy's for a late lunch. The actual restaurant is cramped but they have a large outside patio with picnic tables. The burgers were delicious but I was surprised that they did not have more choices for cheese and toppings-not sure why it is called a burger spa. The onion rings were fabulous. It was a little pricey-the actual patty was quite small on the bun but all the fixings on top made you feel like you were eating a large burger.

“Very good local burgers, nice outdoor seating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

I really like the outdoor seating behind the Izzy's, it's cool and breezy and you can breath that fresh forest air. The food is usually good, nice and fresh, grilled to order. All goes well with nice cold beer. The place is a bit cramped inside and that may be a bit of nuisance in the winter, but for the summer time, the best is to sit outside and enjoy!

“Great Burger!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

We like to consult TripAdvisor for restaurants when traveling and avoid the chains that we can get anywhere. Unfortunately, we were unable to get cellular data when passing through Lake Tahoe at lunchtime. We had to rely on instinct and luck. At Izzy's, luck was on our side.
We noticed several burger shacks in town, but when we passed Izzy's, we noticed the parking lot was pretty full, including several construction trucks in the lot. We thought it must be good with that many cars in the lot and surely the workers were there because they knew where to grab a good meal.
While the building is a little cramped on the inside, there's plenty of seating on outdoor tables, if the weather is nice, which it was on the day of our visit. Décor wasn't much, but then again, you're not expecting a 5-star experience when you walk in.
The burgers were excellent and nicely grilled on a fresh bun. The regular burger was big enough to satisfy a hungry man. They had a double if you really must. Fries were fresh, tender and crisp.
We would definitely visit again if we have the opportunity.
