We had breakfast here! Very prices! If you leave here hungry, it's your own fault! Portions are huge!!! Food comes out quickly! Ask for Michele (The waitress) if you go there! So friendly! Loved It!

We stopped at the Red Hut for a light supper and was very pleased with the Philly cheese steak sandwich. Since this is the slow time of the year we were served immediately. If in Tahoe again I would stop again.

Had the “Rim Trail” sundae. Huge and delicious! Cute shop with very friendly staff. They have old-fashioned sodas, too.
