While on vacation in the area we drove by the Char-Pit several times and noted that most of the time the line was out the door. Figured it had to be a great place to eat. Finally had time to stop in and grab some food. The lady who took our order was great! Unfortunately that's where the rest went down hill. After about a 35 minute wait for our order I finally had to ask where our food was....I made the mistake of asking the manager Lisa as it turned out. When our order was ready it was wrong and missing an order of fries. She took a brief moment to explain to me that "I" must of ordered wrong. She yelled out for another order of fries to the cooks at which time I pointed to an order of fries sitting right next to my food. I asked if I could have those. "So you want someone else's food!?" "Yeah Lisa....the guy who's been waiting half an hour for a simple order that comes out asking for you to take care of your customer" Like I informed effected your review! Location: Great Establishment: Average Staff/non-management: Awesome Manager: Rude with poor recognition of how to quickly fix a problem to make customer happy. Food: Was not impressed at all. Will not return

A comfortable stop on the main drag for an excellent burger at a fair price. At the recommendation of our cashier I had the Swiss Burger and onion rings which exceeded my original expectations and left me me pretty satisfied. The cook's heckling of our cashier seemed pretty unfriendly and unprofessional and knocked this place down a notch.

Great food! We were looking for BBQ and stumbled upon this place which has great food and an old school feel. They have bbq in addition to great burgers, chicken, and fries. Even though it was rainy, we sat outside and ate since there were umbrellas at the tables. Great for take out or if you want to eat outdoors. No seating inside. Could use a good scrub down inside but it adds to the old time feel being a bit dingy lol. (In particular the video game table...Pac Man... could use some regular cleaning....looks like many people had sat there and ate!)

The Char-Pit in Lake Tahoe is a local favorite serving up some serious char-burgers. Get ready for a wait in line if you come around lunchtime. Is what's being served up really worth the hype? To try it out I ordered up a char-burger with cheese. Fresh buns, a perfectly charred patty, melted American cheese, crispy bacon, mayo, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, and thin sliced red onion. Execution is on-spot with this well executed classic. A flavorful patty, hearty cheese, and a blend of toppings that complements both through their flavor and texture. This Lake Tahoe classic is a favorite for consistency and its ability to transport you to feeling like you are at a backyard BBQ. If you are in Lake Tahoe and feel like a bite of Classic Americana this is the place to go. Get some outdoor seating, grab a drink, and let the time pass by.

Great al fresco eating area (esp. for mid-August). I had the clam po-boy and loved it despite the messiness of lots of remoulade sauce. They missed the "no onions" request, but they were sliced into rings and fairly easy to take off. My husband had the bacon burger and thought it had great flavor and was cooked perfectly. He also had no complaints about his vanilla shake :). This is definitely a spot that we'd revisit if in the area. Non food related: we were there at a peak lunch hour, so parking was tight, as well as space inside the restaurant while standing in line to order.

The best burger I had in a long time. A must stop if you are traveling around the lake.

Monday evening after 4th of July weekend: Should have told people that there would be a 1+ hour wait for a regular burger. This resulted in 20 hungry and frustrated people. At least they gave some of us our burgers for free after having waited 1 hour and 15 mins.
