Obexter’s General Store on Tahoe’s West Shore

Next time you are on the West Shore or want an excuse to go to the West Shore, check out Obexter’s General Store.  From the outside it appears to be just another soda pop stop but once you step inside, the options are endless and the history is deep.  Dating back to 1908, this is a true local stop.  This store has it all.  First we hit the deli where they make their brown sugar pepper bacon in house along with options of the Obexter’s private label BBQ sauce, marinades and salsas.  Then outside to the deck where beer and wine is now offered. The general store is well curated with carefully selected items included in the mix of food and beverages.  You can find Tahoe guide books, local Tahoe made products, key hiking and camping items, beach toys and a candy selection to please any kids desire!  While you wait for your sandwich, be sure to look around as you can find touches of the past including original Burton snowboards and the Obexter’s family tree.

I also hear that the access from the lake when you’re cruising out on your boat is perfect!
