We were traveling around Lake Tahoe for the day and wanted a place to stop for lunch. My wife was in the mood for BBQ so she googled BBQ and this place came up as close by. Very old and dingy on the inside but didn't realize it until after we had been seated and decided to give a try.... More

Was just passing through South Lake Tahoe and happened across Rojos. I was dubious at first, very rustic thought it was kind of a dive bar. My wife and I were warmly greeted by the bar tender. It was happy hour so I went for the $1 taco. Got 4 beef tacos, simple excellent taste. They were so good I... More

This is my favorite place to eat in Tahoe. It's a short drive from Harvey's. I recommend their famous fries but all of the food is fantastic and reasonably priced.

Gotta jump on here to keep it real. The one good thing I will say - the food tasted quite good. Everything else was a disaster. Service was about slow and inattentive as it gets, and the place was empty. I've seen some reviews saying portions are big - not true. Half rack of ribs was tiny. The "side" of... More

Rojas restaurant has a good variety of food. My sirloin steak salad was excellent. They have kids portion meals for the children and my daughter said her spaghetti was very good. The rest of our family also commented that their food was great. The staff was were very friendly and attentive. Overall this is a very good place to eat.

I have gone here year after year and it never disappoints. You have to try the French Fried Potatoes they are like no other french fry you have tried. Full service bar, great appetizers and main entrees. Great for all. Kid friendly. Good place to watch football too.

Our friend's had their rehearsal dinner here the night before their wedding and it was such a neat place to have it! We had it in the basement in "The Cavern" and it was a great time. The food was SO, SO tasty! The bartender was pretty spectacular and the atmosphere was awesome. Definitely didn't know what to expect when... More

We were glad we stopped in this little, rustic corner place. It is quaint and nothing fancy to look at. The bar and dining room were separate. When we first looked at the menu we commented that "it isn't cheap" so we ordered sandwiches. If the sandwiches are any indication of the dinners the food Is great. Hubby had a... More
