This store has everything you will ever need. From fresh pastry and pies to fresh bread baked daily this is your stop. Prices are alittle high but expected for the ease and selection.

It’s under new management and they don’t have the amazing sandwiches they used to. This kind of broke my heart and ruined my lunch plans. Still a great little business, but not what it used to be.

Whatever you need you will find this msrket to have it. Great sandwiches on sub rooms only. Lots of snacks, beverages, cheeses, grocery items and more. Fast friendly staff. Not many choices along this stretch of road but this is a great one.

PDQ market has been there as long as I can remember. They never fail to disappoint. They have just about everything a large store would have but much smaller. Their prices are a little high but it beats a trip with traffic into Tahoe City....More

Stopped several times to pick up groceries, but the deli is the hit! Very good sandwiches (had one on pesto bread - so good!) and meat department (part of the deli). Was also happy to find Gooey Cake treats from St. Louis, at the register....More

Checking trip advisor for the next stop on our Californian tour I spotted the recommendations for the PDQ market. Without these we would probably have stocked up on groceries for our stay by Lake Tahoe in one of the towns on route. We are very...More

The sandwiches are definitely the best part of the PDQ. I never leave Tahoma without sharing one and eating it with one of the numerous spectacular views around Tahoe.

Great market with just about all you need on the west shore of Tahoe. They have great shirts/hats/souvenirs too! They have an indoor restroom, which is very handy if you're driving through, as there aren't many other options nearby! One tiny nit: no high-end champagne...More
