This is one of our favorite local burger spots in Tahoe. Although the exterior is less than to be desired, the food is really good. They have more than just burgers and fries...think fish and chips, tacos and BBQ. The kids meals also come with free soft serve cones. The only bummer is how long it takes to get your food, but it's totally worth the wait after a fun day at the lake.

You might miss the Char Pit unless you are specifically looking for it. It's a small little hut on the lake side of the highway with a small outside eating area. And, at first glance, you might not think much of it. But this little place has the best burgers on the lake! If you're going for lunch, you should try to get there by 11:15 to avoid the crowds and (perhaps) find an outside table.

Great Burger Joint!

Conviently located right on the main highway in Kings Beach. They have a nice selection of food, beyond just burgers. You must try their delicous, creamy milk shakes. They are just a great old-fashioned burger stand. One of the best things is they are dog-friendly. Plenty of outdoor seating for you & your dog to enjoy Char-Pit's delicous food.

If you are ANYWHERE in Lake Tahoe, you must go to The Char Pit in Kings Beach, CA, on the North Shore! The food is GREAT!!! I haven't had a good quality, char broiled burger since I was a kid. Watch out though, they are addicting. Great Tahoe atmosphere, great service and great food, all at a good price. You can't beat that! Char Pit is a MUST when in Tahoe!
