Moderately priced but delivers good meals and drinks, when the salad bar is open, it is top notch. I will often just eat that instead of a full meal.

Reasonably priced spot. Very good, old school hamburger joint. Good outdoor seating in the summer, the place does get busy and a 30 minute wait for your food is not abnormal, but worth the wait.

Higher priced latin food. This place is good and they make exquisite cocktails, great indoor and outdoor and rooftop seating. They have a signature tequila slushy drink called the "chupacabra"......they are potent. This place is also owned by the owners of Garwoods in Carnelian Bay and Riva Grill in South Lake Tahoe.

Casino

Just a mile and half up the road on the Stateline. The CBC as it is known to locals is the best place for live music, touring bands and gambling in North Lake Tahoe. It is walkable (a hill to climb) but a short taxi ride is preferred. Across the street is the Tahoe Biltmore which is an older hotel casino. It has been quite a while since the Biltmore's glory days., but if the CBC is busy its a good alternative.

Great resort with epic terrain. The old school mountain feel without the corporate and luxury village feel and clientele. My favorite spot to ski in North Lake Tahoe.
