We've enjoyed Tep's on a couple of occasions when we've been in Tahoe. They have a wonderful salad bar (except the fake bacon bits). Lots and lots of toppings for your salad. You can also have minestrone soup. Both are unlimited. You also receive a basket of bread and garlic bread sticks. Average prices for entrees are 14.99-19.99. My husband... More

We asked some locals where to eat and they recommended Tep's Villa Roma. The staff was friendly and the salad bar was great. So much variety - we loved it. The main meal was delicious also. Couldn't eat everything.

The lasagna was excellent! The salad bar was plentiful. They do have a full and separate bar. My husband ordered a salmon dish and was pleased.

Food was excellent! Service was impeccable! Ambiance was wonderful! I ordered the Chicken Piccata! Was the best I have ever eaten! Chicken was tender, roasted slices of fresh garlic, and capers! Was incredible! Hubby ordered the Sausage and Peppers. Very fresh and very good! Kids ordered spaghetti and meatballs. They liked it. Loved the meatball (only one meatball). They had... More

I went here on my own and the institutional style tables and chairs put me off. The so-called salad bar was okay rather than good. I mean who has fake bacon bits! However, I ordered a standard spaghetti bolognese and it came out hot and delicious. It was cheap and cheerful. Cool place. Give it a looksee.

We were recommended this place by a co-worker who had come here on their trip to Tahoe. She was raving about the "all you can eat" antipasto bar, and we all agreed it was quite a plus. The entire family took part in the bar, and trying different entres, everyone enjoyed their meals. The wife and I shared angel hair... More

Parking small and awkward. Service not lightning fast but friendly enough. Salad bar pretty impressive, soup just ok. Entrees also good if not amazing. Dark funky dining room. Ya, worth a visit with your family, solid value

Lots of food for a good price. Not gourmet but not bad either. Decor is dated. Service was ok. Not bad for a resort town
