Good morning, foodies!
I’m up pretty early this morning in preparation for today: back to school. It’s a bittersweet time, my very last first day of school. That’s right, it’s the beginning of my senior year in college. Sad. But I think I’m ready. With school comes a bit of reading, homework, you know the usual. That being said, I want to be sure I have time to keep you all updated with the best restaurants around Dallas and keep up my blog posts for you all. I will be posting on a new schedule: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and most likely one day of the weekend. So be looking out for the new posts on those days and thank you so much for all your support and readership!
Alright, now on to my last Lake Tahoe post. (Then it’s back to Dallas!)
Where: North Lake Tahoe
A tiny little dive restaurant that looks like it should be featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, I couldn’t wait to try the much-talked-about Char-Pit. I’d heard it was good (from our host Steven) and it definitely lived up to its hype.
Although I didn’t order a burger, I got to try a bite of one. The patties are tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. I love how they had the classics like cheeseburgers, chicken tenders and hot dogs, but they also got creative with burgers like the “Tiki Burger” with teriyaki sauce and grilled pineapple.
And if you’re not into red meat, they have plenty of alternatives. Pictured above is their chicken sandwich, and they also have gyros, grilled portabella sandwiches, veggie burgers, turkey burgers and more. And don’t forget dessert! They have frosties, ice cream cones, banana splits, malts—you name it. Just don’t go here on a diet.
My favorite part about this fun burger shop was the homemade feel. After you place your order, you take a seat on one of their picnic tables and wait to hear your name being called through a speaker resting on the ground near the door. When a restaurant keeps things simple and original, you have to appreciate their main focus: the delicious food.
Again, if you’re ever around Tahoe, give this place a try. It’s great for big groups, and definitely won’t break the bank.
