Tacos Jalisco

Ask any Spanish speaker in Truckee where the best tacos in town are and they’ll point you straight to Tacos Jalisco.

Ask any Spanish speaker in Truckee where the best tacos in town are and they’ll point you straight to Tacos Jalisco, a hole in the wall behind the 7-11 on Donner Pass Road. Once you find it, order at the counter—try three spicy carnitas tacos (the pollo tacos are delicious too) and ask for a side of guacamole—then grab a booth. The place has the authentic vibe of a local taco joint in Puerta Vallarta, but with a hint of ski-town culture (bus boys in beannies and plenty of après ski Tecates being consumed).

Wild Cherries, located on Donner Pass Road, is where Truckee locals go for morning coffee en route to the mountains. And it’s no wonder why: Former Olympic skier Kristin Krone, who competed in the 1988 Calgary Winter Games and the 1992 Albertville Winter Games in downhill and super G, has owned the coffee shop since 1999. The café is usually bustling from 6 a.m. until it closes at 6 p.m. For breakfast, order a smoothie, breakfast sandwich, or a mug of their signature coffee.

Balboa Café

The fact that you can ski straight to the patio of the Balboa Café Squaw Valley is a major contributor to the restaurant's immense popularity.

The fact that you can ski straight to the patio of the Balboa Café Squaw Valley is a major contributor to the restaurant's immense popularity. Ditto the lively bar scene, where drinks like the K-12 Snuggler (Bailey's Irish Cream, peppermint schnapps and hot cocoa) clink rims with pints of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and glasses of Russian River Chardonnay.
