Stopped In Pollock Pines on the way home from a business trip to try this place. Last time for me. Main issue, when I walked in, I was given a very unfriendly non greeting. The burger was good. Everything was very fresh on it and the cheese I could tell they spent some try experimenting with the correct way to... More

Wife had a vegi burger and sweet potato fries. Both were freshly prepared and nicely presented. Our waitress was attentive and had a pleasant personality. Dining area and restrooms were... More

We were traveling thru from Napa to Lake Tahoe and stopped here for lunch. Cute little place and clean. Service good and burgers and fries hit the spot. Nice little respite from our journey.

I recently stayed in Pollock Pines with my son and his wife. This is one of their favourite places to eat and my mushroom and swiss cheese burger was so delicious... We sat outdoors on the patio (summer there) with their two small dogs. My beer was only $3 and it was a very relaxing experience...their sign says everything is... More

Yes, the burgers are as good as the reviews! We stopped for a late lunch, basic cheeseburger for me and a jalapeño burger and fries for the husband. Delicious!! I loved that we got crisp green leaf lettuce and fresh sliced tomatoes on the burgers, everything was super fresh. We were too full to have shakes but they had plenty... More

Rustic doesn't begin to describe the building and decor you find here...it's certainly old time, but comfortable and reassuring. While I was there, it was visited by a couple of groups of teenagers, and an older couple were getting ready to leave when I arrived. So all age groups seemed to like it here. The food was basic, but was... More

I stopped in to grab a burger and fries and a glass of fresh brewed ice tea after a Moto ride around Ice House/Crystal Basin area. I've been to Burger Barn several times and it never disappoints. Especially after riding the Moto all day. I got a Bacon Cheese Burger and added tomato "don't forget to ask for tomatoes" and... More

I enjoyed the western burger which was very nice, juicy burger, crisp bacon, but the fries were a bit greasy and the shake a bit thin. Still a nice meal for not too much money, I just expected more from past reviews.

What a pleasant surprise. Stopping on our way home from skiing, we found a fresh made burger and milkshake. Please be patient as it may take 15 or more to get your order made, but it is worth the wait. We will stop again on our way back to the bay area from Lake Tahoe

Thank Tim S
