    The wet burrito was outstanding. I will be back for it next summer during my Tahoe trip.

    Great margaritas and Mexican food in Kings Beach. Just minutes from the state line. The bar is pretty cool.

    I heard from the chef that they pulled tonight's special out of Taco Bell's dumpster...last Friday. The food here is horrible. Thankfully the drinks are strong.
