My husband and I have been enjoying CB's Pizza for more than two decades, and we're so happy to see the original recipe back in action. If we visit Tahoe, we visit CB's. They go hand in hand, and we wouldn't miss coming to this...More

Definitely stop by CBs for pizza, sandwiches and salads. The chicken club sandwich is awesome as are the sweet potato fries. Friendly service. Great for families.
