After the Hike: Local Favorites

360 Smokehouse Go figure Tahoe's best BBQ is at the top of the Grandview chair lift! And you'll be ready for it after riding Sierra. Try the made-from-scratch sauce, deep fried green beans, brisket and pulled pork.
Meyers Downtown Cafe Try the Breakfast Sandwich - OMG - My favorite breakfast place in South Lake Tahoe! Check our website for all the favorites and insider tips!
The Getaway Cafe There's a reason this place won awards for being solid all-around.
3140 Hwy 50, Meyers CA — (530) 577-5132
Lake Tahoe Pizza Company If you like all meat, you can't beat the Barnyard Massacre!!!!!
Bert's Cafe Tons of homemade items.
Ernie's Coffee Shop The bacon waffles are the best!
Passaretti's Blackened prawns and calamari almondine are amazing
Round Table Pizza Great service. The food was fresh, fast, and hot!
Burger Lounge The Camino burger is one of the most tantalizing burgers I've ever had! (And i have had a LOT of burgers.)
Orchid's Authentic Thai Cuisine Get the Tom Yum Soup, you won't regret! The chicken wings and pork spring rolls are great appetizers
Artemis Mediterranean Grill This food is amazing! Love the lamb gyros
Fasta Pasta Epic portions! I recommend buying drinks at the store they shares a space with + taking it all with you to the viewpoint at Emerald Bay [preferably at sunset]. I assure you, it's quite the experience.
Hog Wild BBQ Try the campfire spuds

Taqueria Jalisco Best Mexican food and best service in town!
Obexers General Store Obexers is an amazing place for deli style food, great craft beers and friendly staff! We love Obexers!
Sprouts Cafe Tofu bowl? Don't do it. It doesn't have any flavor. Plenty of other things on the menu that are well worth your time and hard earned cash.
West Shore Cafe & Inn Makes Garwoods look like McDonalds
5160 W Lake Blvd, Homewood CA — (530) 525-5200
