3660 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
South Lake Tahoe, California
In 1959, the old Donut Shop building at Stateline was moved about 2½ miles down to its current location in South Lake Tahoe and the original Red Hut Waffle Shop was opened. You can still see the original letters on the east side of the building. The owners, Mac and Lorraine, and their two daughters, Candy and Cheryl Lee, ran the operation, with Mac as chief cook and bottle-washer. Mac has passed on, but Lorraine still lives in Gardnerville, Nevada. Mac would hide the next day’s bank in an old pair of cowboy boots above the freezer. If you look hard today, you might see a pair of boots in one of the Red Huts to remind us of our history…
Peace, Love and Waffles!

“Solid Local Joint”
“Solid local joint. Came here for breakfast and had the ‘Usual’ special (eggs, hashbrowns, one biscuit and gravy). Food looked and tasted great. All of the servers made you feel very welcome like you were a regular that came there every morning.”
