After the Ride: 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.
Bert's Cafe Tons of homemade items.
Jaliscos Great food. Always happy employes.
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
Chimayó Street Grill Good spot by Heavenly. Lots of good meat to choose from, burrito was ok.
Blue Angel Cafe & Catering Co. My favorite place to eat - hands down. I have never had a bad meal here. Try the coconut crusted tofu.
California Main Lodge You can activate your EpicMix account right in the California Main Lodge cafeteria. Just look for the computers and EpicMix sign.
Goodfellas Pizza Me gustó la pizza de Goodfellas Pizza. Por $20 tuvimos una deliciosa pizza de pollo barbacoa con aguacate para 3 personas y nos sobró casi la mitad.
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!!!
Lotus Pho surprisingly decent pho in Tahoe. grilled pork is also delicious. Thai tea is super strong, be prepared for caffeine high.
Applebee's Jello shot girl roaming the bar? Uh..
Baja Fresh Get the Baja Burrito. It ROCKS!
California Burger Co. Great burgers and live music
Driftwood Cafe Best breakfast in the village
