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...)

Went to stop for a burger since we had a bunch of kids with us. This place was the cleanest oldest burger place. Even the bathrooms were spotless. You can see there is a lot of owner pride. Burgers were great and made to order and my small ice cream cone could of choked a horse it was so big.... More

Gotta love the vanilla frostys. Simple, cheap and fun for the kids. Reminds me of vacationing up north in Russian River. Walking distance to the lake.

Local eatery with the biggest soft serve ice cream cones I've ever seen! Hamburgers were amazing - grilled and served old-style, nothing fancy just really good seasoned and tasting food.

We've been coming to Lake Tahoe every year since 1996. Sno Flake Drive In has been a tradition for us to get soft serve chocolate dipped cones. Imagine our surprise when we went in and they said they no longer had them! They have the regular soft serve, just not the chocolate dip. I got the Heath Bar shake instead.... More

Stopped in for a soft-serve ice cream. Small cones are $3.50 but HUGE! Could not finish the whole cone! My companion had a $5.50 hot fudge sundae and it was also super-sized. Love this place!

It's becoming a ritual, share a burger with the kid after soccer. The combo meal is the way to go. Great location.

We always stop by the Snoflake when we have the opportunity. Many nights it is dinner for my family. If we aren't eating we stop by for a milkshake or ice cream.

I could not find anything to have here, but a lot of my local friends love it. The ice cream is old fashioned soft serve, with no healthy or sugar free options. All the food is classic fried Americana: hotdogs, hamburger, and French Fries. The style is adorable, like a 60s drive through, with a great lighted old sign.

Thank Jana M
