Squeeze In, Truckee, CA

Squeeze In Restaurant Review

: A Truckee staple since the 1970s, this small storefront space offers 60-plus huge omelets bulging with everything from artichoke hearts to refried beans, although many specimens are simply permutations of meat, avocado, peppers and jack cheese (the kitchen loves jack cheese). Squeeze In also serves eggs any style and pancakes (its concession to the omelet averse), as well as burgers, burritos and triple-decker sandwiches. Leaving your mark on the walls (or tables) seems to be encouraged, along with tableside use of your smartphone (use of the Squeeze In app earns you a free mimosa). Longtime employees craft d├ęcor and goofy menu names to conjure a quirky, offbeat vibe. On weekends, be prepared for long waits.
