In the quest for the "Good Burger", Bridgetender is a destination. For years now, we have been driving around Lake Tahoe...passing the Bridgetender Tavern and Grill- searching for a big messy burger. This trip around the lake, we finally pulled into the parking lot — just on the south side of the dam at 65 West Lake Blvd, Tahoe City, CA 96145.
Let me tell you, it was a fine burger - and the bun holds up to the messy goodness. Mine was perfect! Medium Rare, it was a very tasty half-pounder with extra+$1.50 for fries (ordered extra crispy...) with 4 dill pickles, a mountain of shredded lettuce, a red onion slice and an orange slice. Our server was friendly, and attentive — refilling my glass of ice tea many times! So, everything we're heard about the burger at Bridgetender proves true.
