Walk up, order and have a great burger out on the deck. We had a great burger and soaked up the old beach walk up atmosphere of the Sno-Flake.

Visited it late in the night, when other places in South Lake Tahoe were closed. What a discovery! Of course, you can eat burgers and fries, but they are really tasty. They take their time to prepare your order (not too much, they are very...More

Was in the mood for ice cream and had the Vanilla in a waffle cone. It had a really good vanilla flavor, and enjoyed it immensely. We didn't have any burgers but they smelled amazing.

We usually stop here for great soft-serve ice cream but found the best burgers and sweet potato fries here as well. Generous in size but good for post-hike revival. Parking can be tough and there is road construction nearby (the norm of Tahoe!).

I had icecream 5 days in a row. I love their soft serve icecream and my husband loves their variety of shakes. They have very generous portions. Good thing we walked there every day!

Good ice cream. Average food quality. Ice cream served after 10 minute wait and kid's chicken fingers and fries followed 30 minutes later. On the pricey side. Go to McDonalds.

If you need a burger fix, this is the place! There's a great menu with a variety of burgers to order and various sides. The chili cheese fries are really delicious and big enough to share, unless you have a big appetite!

Vintage Lake Tahoe... Classic “burger joint”... As stated above, if your in Lake Tahoe, you need to check this off your list (if you enjoy a good burger & shake...)
