We went for breakfast one morning. Food was ok but not great. Prices are a bit high. I got a burrito, which was only partially heated through. Not totally impressed.

Obexer's is a nice convenient little genera store on west shore. It has a decent supply of foods and goods as you would expect but the real reason I ever go is for the harbor master breakfast burrito. All the food at the deli takes a really long time to be made which can be a little frustrating. Expect to... More

We stopped for a drink on their deck following a long walk. We waited a little time for the two women staffing the checkout to finish their conversation. They informed us we had to place our order at the deli bar. The server there was unable to recommend any local or American beer, sadly he was not enjoying his job... More

Tried sandwiches here for a quick lunch. Turkey, mayo, pesto, avocado, lettuce. Perfect. They have picnic tables on a patio that's a short walk to the boat rentals. We'd get our picnic food here for sure.

Although the service was not swift, the herbed veggie roll up sandwich was the best that I have ever eaten!

We were driving around the west side of the lake and we're looking for somewhere to stop for lunch, but were struggling to find anywhere open. When we came to this general store we thought we would look to see if they sold sandwiches expecting prepackaged. Well there was a deli counter making up what you wanted fresh as you... More

Have stopped here many times for sandwiches. They make great ones and a good variety for take out. Just to the south, behind the boat ramp is a small bean. We go there, sit with a beer or wine and have our sandwiches with The water of Lake Tahoe lapping at our feet.

Obexers has The best breakfast sandwich ever!! The coffee is good and the little market has most of the basics you would need while away from home. I wish we were staying in Tahoe longer so we could try the rest of their sandwiches!
