Stopped by PDQ at the recommendation of Gary Chaney, Chaney House, and were not disappointed. This general store made sandwiches large enough that half was good enough for day one and the second half for day two. Plenty of food options for sailors, hikers and sightseers.

Stopped several times to pick up groceries, but the deli is the hit! Very good sandwiches (had one on pesto bread - so good!) and meat department (part of the deli). Was also happy to find Gooey Cake treats from St. Louis, at the register. Great impulse buy! Friendly staff - but the line can get long at the deli... More

Checking trip advisor for the next stop on our Californian tour I spotted the recommendations for the PDQ market.

The sandwiches are definitely the best part of the PDQ. I never leave Tahoma without sharing one and eating it with one of the numerous spectacular views around Tahoe.

Great market with just about all you need on the west shore of Tahoe. They have great shirts/hats/souvenirs too! They have an indoor restroom, which is very handy if you're driving through, as there aren't many other options nearby! One tiny nit: no high-end champagne (their best is a $25 Mumm, which was nice but not quite Veuve Cliquot!).

Made great sandwiches but we're very slow. It was a very busy weekend though. We went in there quite frequently. Thier deli was outstanding. Food was fresh. Noticed a lot of videos to rent.

Out of milk, eggs, ice, cold cuts and many more items. The line for the deli the other day was 25 or more people winding their away around the isles, make it difficult to access items in the store.

PDQ Market is the go-to deli for big hearty fresh made sandwiches on a variety of fresh baked breads

Acute Market & Deli. Certainly very busy especially for a Saturday. But the place was fairly clean and they offered a lot of different things.
