    SKI TOWN TREATS AND GRINDS (NORTH)

    This post is for the secret spots you like to eat. I hate McD and the like so I'm going to start sharing my favorite places to eat and drink so perhaps it helps someone out like me. If you have a spot map it and post it. I will include it here.

    RENO:
    Los 4 Vientos: Awesome Mexican food. Brush up on your Spanish because English won't get you any food.

    Naan and Kabab: Mediteranian food. Pretty fkn good, and if you get there between 4pm and 6pm they have a two for one special.

    Ceol: Sweet laid back Irish bar. The owner is Ron from the Mt. Rose bar and he did a good job making a fun place to chill.

    Nicks Greek Deli: Literally Mom & possibly another Mom. Killer food, and great portions. I recommend the Gyro plate! Is everything Greek named Nick's?

    Slide Side: Small coffee shop and bar. Neet place struggling to survive. Built by skiers for skiers... in a crappy location. If you get a chance stop in.

    INCLINE:
    Austins, good down home cooking. ~unpossible~

    Ts Mesquite Rotisserie, no description given, but I am going to guess there is some sort of BBQ element involved... ~unpossible~

    NORTH LAKE TAHOE:
    -King's Beach
    Jasons Salad bar == YUM! ~Jim S~ <- This link is a little frigged up, and I can't fix it; but you want Jason's on the beach.

    Caliente Mexican food, with that comes MARGARITAS!

    Hiro Sushi Friday night all you can eat at the Sushi Bar only ~deuce~

    Char Pit Good Burger, fries and milkshakes(that bring all the boyz to the yard...wait?what? we're not doing that anymore? ~deuce~

    TRUCKEE:
    Tacos Jalisco ~bodywhomper~

    Squeeze In Gets a lot of tourists (real ones that only come up once a year and HAVE to go to this place they heard about) but the breakfast is solid. You like omelets...they like making omelets. ~deuce~

    Bill's Rotisserie Bill's Rotisserie $5 tri-tip sando is a winner and so is everything else! ~gone2alpine

    SKI TOWN TREATS AND GRINDS (SOUTH)

    This post is for the secret spots you like to eat. I hate McD and the like so I'm going to start sharing my favorite places to eat and drink so perhaps it helps someone out like me. If you have a spot map it and post it. I will include it here.

    SOUTH LAKE TAHOE:
    Artemis greek restaurant in SLT. Place has absolutley amazing food & it's Greek & not named Nick's. Try the venison burger. ~Nuthon~

    Burger Lounge It's all about the hangover helper. ~Nuthon~

    Turn 3 Always a good local spot for a cocktail. $3.50 bloodymary's with a beer back all day sunday, every sunday of the year. All football games & Nascar if your into that. ~Nuthon~

    Divided Sky in Meyers for cocktails as soon as your into town. ~Nuthon~

    The Brewery Pub, pizza, wings, and beer... What else do you need? EDIT: The beer is probably better than Freshies

    Freshies good California food menu and PLINY THE ELDER ON TAP - probably the best beer on tap in the entire Tahoe area (okay I don't know shit about North Lake pubs/bars). ~SchralphMacchio~

    Brothers Burrito House ~bodywhomper~

    Orchid Thai Solid Thai food ~deuce~

    Red Hut Waffle Shop ~deuce~

    Izzy's Burger Spa Good Burgers ~deuce~

    Riva Grill I would add riva grill to south lake tahoe eats great views on the lake and the food is pretty good also. ~SkiCougar

    Regarding weather maps, the powder watch link just redirects to powdermag.com. +1 for Bill's.

    Good morning. I have added the new spots for food. I will be adding patch skiing and getting rid of powder watch... Too bad, that was a good page. Also, there is an issue with the single posts and I am trying to figure that out. If you notice anything else please let me know and I will add/correct it as soon as I can.

    Let it snow!

    ahhh, finally getting colder. Welcome 11/12 season and thanks for the thread TMRF!

    food ... I move to add Nakorn Thai in South Lake as an alternative to when the other weekenders are lining up outside the door at Orchid Thai. The food at Narkorn is just as good, the service just as nice, the setting and style just as authentic.

    I also move to strike Izzy's Burger Spa from the list ... the only thing that place has over Burger Lounge is that they sell beer, which is huge, but if you are grading on the burger then the Lounge is clearly leagues above.

    Can I get seconds for these motions?

    Five Guys Burgers now open in Vacaville at the Nut Tree plaza. Easy access right off 80. Plus the non meat-eaters can get other stuff in the same little mall. Five Guys is better than In N Out IMO.

    It's that time already isn't it?! A root canal disaster this summer blew all my fundage for next year, so the 11/12 thread showing up scares the crap out of me when I reference where I am on my summer savings. Might be time to spread the ass cheeks to make next season happen.
