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.
Jaliscos Great food. Always happy employes.
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
West Shore Pizza Great pizza place on the West Side.
7000 Westlake Blvd, Tahoma CA — (530) 525-4771
Blue Angel Cafe & Catering Co. Great relaxed apres ski atmosphere, and good food.
ChimayĆ³ Tacos y Tortas Good spot by Heavenly. Lots of good meat to choose from, burrito was ok.
California Main Lodge You can activate your EpicMix account right in the California Main Lodge cafeteria. Just look for the computers and EpicMix sign.
Gold Coast Complex Time for a break and a cheeseburger
Steins Grab a beer and an Adirondack chair for the true California ski experience.
Himmel Haus The finest food and beer in South Lake Tahoe. The homemade pickles are legendary and they have Hacker on tap!!!
IHOP Put napkin under pancake plate to force syrup to flow to the side with room to collect it. Less spilling.
Lotus Pho surprisingly decent pho in Tahoe. grilled pork is also delicious. Thai tea is super strong, be prepared for caffeine high.
California Burger Co. Great burgers and live music
Driftwood Cafe Best breakfast in the village
Maya's Mexican Grill A tiny little place that has some delicious Mexican grub! Try the breakfast burrito with chorizo.
Blue Dog Gourmet Pizza Not gunna lie... The pizza here was awesome!
