Fave Gluten Free Eats: South Lake Tahoe, CA

A couple of years ago, we had the opportunity to visit the Lake Tahoe area for a week. When we finally made it there (high winds in Reno and diverted flights — we won’t talk about it! 😐), it was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen. So amazing!

We visited in the fall, so it was an off season time for South Lake Tahoe (the town we spent most of our time in). It was too cold for summer activities and too warm for winter activities, so it was definitely a quiet (and relaxing) time to visit!

Because we spent most of our time just seeing the scenery and relaxing, I didn’t have much to devote a full blog post to, but I did want to share a couple of “gluten free” gems that I found to eat at while we were there!

The first restaurant we visited after arriving there was Base Camp Pizza. It was located right on the main road in the Heavenly Village.  I ordered the gluten free version of the Base Camp pizza. Delicious!

The next day, we were shopping at the Heavenly Village, spotted a little Mexican restaurant across the street and decided to give it a try. Boy, am I glad we did! It’s called Maya’s Mexican Grill. It was so good and they make handmade tortillas daily. It’s cash only, so make sure you have some on hand! You’re gonna want to try this!

The last place we visited was called Dough Pizza. It’s one of those create-your-own pizza places and they did offer it on a gluten free crust. Google says that this place is closed. However, I’m not sure if it’s permanently closed or just for the season, so I wanted to still mention it. If someone knows if this place is still open, please let me know!

We stayed at our time share during our visit, so we did have access to a full kitchen. Most of my other meals looked a lot like this…

Fancy, huh? One thing to say about it… It’s inexpensive and it gets the job done. 😜

Have you ever visited Lake Tahoe? What are some of the places that you love to eat there? I hope to someday get back… maybe in the winter. I have heard it’s even more beautiful with a dusting of snow!
