Las Panchitas is our go-to Mexican food restaurant in Tahoe. The food is plain home cooking. The refried beans are the best I have ever tasted and everything comes piping hot from the kitchen. The staff is friendly and helpful and if you don't find what you would like, all you have to do is ask. There is a patio... More

Good traditional California Mexican menu. The sauces were no better than average. Service was friendly and prompt. Not a bad place to stop.

This place has been my favorite mexican food for the last ten years. It's fresh, the staff is effecient and friendly enough, and the food is always great. Margarita pitchers after the beach are perfect, and the new outdoor seating is pretty nice when the street is slow. Unfortunately the new outdoor seating is the old parking area, so parking... More

This is a regular spot for our family. The best nachos in the world + the friendliest staff = happy family dinner! Don't expect anything new or too healthy, just the tried and true with extra cheese.

Stopped here for lunch - sat out front on the patio. Had shredded beef crispy tacos and the special burrito (also shredded beef). Both dishes were good, and service was friendly but on the slow side.

We come up to South Tahoe yearly and are disappointed with Mexican restaurants up here. Found this place in North Tahoe and was not disappointed. We came in around 3 pm. The service and food were great. I will definitely go back next year. Down side: Parking is tight but everything in the area is that way.

Perfect location for dining while visiting Kings Beach and Lake Tahoe. Right across the street from the beach. Good food for a great price, especially the "Early Dining" discount. Check it out. Well worth the trip.
