Tahoe Trip

Just got back from a vacation in South Lake Tahoe. We had a great burger at the Bar of America in Truckee ($11 for burger and fries). For you Diners, Drive-ins and Dives fans, we went over to wine country and ate burgers at the Squeeze Inn in Sacramento on the way over and Taylors Refresher in St Helena while there. Both were good but not outstanding. The Squeeze Inn is aptly named as it is a tiny place with about 10 stools, so we ate in the car there.

Ate on outside picnic tables at Taylors like everything in Napa Valley, its pricey - $9 burger.

It snowed 3-4 ft in Tahoe while we were there so it was a winter wonderland and I got my snow fix. Heres a pic out of the condo window.

You were in my neck of the woods! South Lake is about a 12 minute drive for me. We really needed the snow! I've been to the Bar of America a couple times. Really good food, but of course it's expensive!

Looks like you had a good time!

Bar of America got it's name because it originally it was a BANK of America LOL!

The resort was "The Ridge Tahoe", which sits on a ridge above the Stagecoach ski lift. Here's a pick from the condo of the line waiting for the lift to open.
