Where to Find the Most Authentic Mexican Food in North Lake Tahoe

When you visit North Lake Tahoe, there are more than a few things you will want to do while you’re here. From visiting Donner’s Pass to skiing to attending one of the many festivals and events that take place each year, our piece of paradise offers fun and excitement around every corner. But one thing you may not have thought of (and will never be able to forget from here on out!) is where you can find the most authentic Mexican food in North Lake Tahoe. This list of the most authentic Mexican restaurants will ensure your North Lake Tahoe getaway is perfectly hot and spicy!

Las Panchitas, 8345 N Lake Boulevard in Kings Beach

The best part of Mexican food, aside from it’s amazing taste, is the casualness of the surroundings. You don’t have to dress up and play a part to enjoy your favorite tacos on any day of the week, and Las Panchitas is one of our favorite examples! Serving delicious Mexican meals that will make your taste buds stand up and take notice, the only downside will be knowing you can only get perfect tacos, enchiladas, and margaritas during your Lake Tahoe getaway; once you’re home again, all this deliciousness will be just a memory!

La Bamba Mexican Restaurant, 11760 Donner Pass Road in Truckee

Casual, colorful, and classic, this South of the Border spot will definitely scratch your itch for authentic comida! Housed in a charming wood building painted blue, the red roof lets you know you have found the right place and the aromas allow you to realize you have found paradise! After you taste your first bite, you’ll wish Taco Tuesday was every day!

The Blue Agave, 425 N. Lake Tahoe Boulevard in Tahoe City

Offering lake views and delicious Mexican food in North Lake Tahoe, this tasty spot is housed inside one of Tahoe’s most historic buildings, but you won’t be thinking about the history when you take your first bite of their impressively large chimichangas! Offering a full menu and a full bar, summer meals on the patio by the lake will be the highlight of your Lake Tahoe vacation.
