Local Favorites in Lake Tahoe

From burgers and brews to barbecue and pizza, Lake Tahoe’s locals know the best joints for simple comfort food. Those hangouts usually include downhome restaurants and hole-in-the-wall bars like the Village Pub. This local dive bar is a hot spot among locals, where a nice selection of beer compliments pub grub like burgers and Coney dogs. Throw some darts or shoot a little stick in the games area and enjoy the friendly ambience.

At Austin’s Restaurant & Bar, both locals and visitors go for the tasty trout dinner and the chicken-fried steak. This dog-friendly locale with a patio also boasts specialty french fries and sauce that have many calling them the best ever.

And speaking of french fries, Inclined Burgers and Brews garlic fries are second to none. Paired with a juicy, handmade burger, the best way to finish the meal is with their soft-serve ice cream.

Nothing says local favorite quite like a small, family-owned pizza place. Mofo’s is just that, an old-fashioned pizza parlor, where the dough and sauce are made fresh daily, and hearty pasta dinners satisfy even the biggest appetites. Lake Tahoe locals love Mofo’s homemade ice cream, the perfect ending to a pizza dinner.

Gus’ Open Pit Barbecue utilizes the Santa Maria method of grilling, where the meats are grilled over an open pit that’s fueled with Red Oak wood, which is indigenous to the central coast of California. Their traditional BBQ meal features tri-tip, chicken, BBQ beans and salad, while their sports bar has a 140-inch video wall for the latest sports events, and a killer happy hour each day.
