Just returned from our first visit to South Lake Tahoe. The lake, surrounding mountains and forests were beautiful, with clear skies, warm sunshine during the day and cool evenings. With a young child along we had no plans for any high end dining. We had several forgetable hotel meals, but also some cheap enjoyable ones as well. The Red Hut Waffle Shop had terrific breakfasts, waffles with fresh berries, an excellent ham steak, crispy hashbrowns, also the "Usual" with biscuits and gravy. Izzy's Burgers had great cheeseburgers, fries and shakes. Both places are very small and casual, perfect for our family.
