  • Best burger on the North Shore! Cajun Chicken Sandwich is the best ever! Another location at Sand Harbor beach too!!
  • Get a rootbeer shake!
  • They say they haven't cleaned the grill since the 70's, which is where all the flavor comes from. On summer weekends, be nice to the cashiers. It's their first job.
  • Bomb shakes! Free ice cream if you get the high score on Ms. Pac-man.
  • The ribs are hidden away from the main part of the menu, but you shouldn't miss out. These guys know what they're doing: Fall-off-the-bone tender meat, with a BBQ sauce that's not too overbearing.
  • Yankee burger!!!
  • Bacon cheese burger and fries. Nothing special but hits the spot for greasy spoon
  • Good Char taste to burgers. Funky, but to eat there on nice days and set outside, a little tight for space inside.
  • Best greasy burger in Tahoe.
  • Solid char style burger as you'd expect. Great that you can order a beer before getting in line
  • Can't miss elevated "jack in the box" style tacos
  • The burgers are great the Wild Turkey was a definite go to.
  • The burgers are really good! Test the Regular Burger is like a perfect Cangreburger haha and you have to try the Sierra beer its so good.
  • Best ribs!
  • Yankee style!
  • Yankee style
