5000 North Lake Boulevard
Carnelian Bay, California
Country: The United States of America

Description: Gar Woods is the perfect spot to hit up to be social, relax, and have a few drinks after a day of enjoying beautiful Lake Tahoe.

A classic cheeseburger topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, mustard + ketchup, and tasty bacon hits the spot. Amongst char-burgers the execution is one of the better that I've ever had. However, a juicier patty post-charring would have put this burger into the elite. The flavors in the toppings combine very well and remind me of a backyard grill.

The major draw at Gar Woods are the drinks and good company to share a meal and conversation with. Gar Woods can get quite busy and is the place to be in summertime Lake Tahoe.

1. Char-Pit

8732 North Lake Boulevard
Kings Beach, California
Country: The United States of America

Description: The Char-Pit in Lake Tahoe is a local favorite serving up some serious char-burgers. Get ready for a wait in line if you come around lunchtime. Is what's being served up really worth the hype?

To try it out I ordered up a char-burger with cheese. Fresh buns, a perfectly charred patty, melted American cheese, crispy bacon, mayo, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, and thin sliced red onion. Execution is on-spot with this well executed classic. A flavorful patty, hearty cheese, and a blend of toppings that complements both through their flavor and texture.

This Lake Tahoe classic is a favorite for consistency and its ability to transport you to feeling like you are at a backyard BBQ. If you are in Lake Tahoe and feel like a bite of Classic Americana this is the place to go. Get some outdoor seating, grab a drink, and let the time pass by.
