The History of Squeeze In

Bank, jewelry, donuts, roller-skating, saloons and more...our Downtown Truckee, California location has seen it all!

Truckee Squeeze In
Exterior of the Downtown Truckee Squeeze In

Opened as Squeeze In since May 1974, previous businesses in Truckee's over-100-year-old building included a bank, a jewelry store, the Gilt Edge Saloon, a meeting lodge, an indoor skating rink, a lodging house, a furniture store, an insurance office, a donut shop, even a liquor store. 

Of course, true glory happened in 1974 when the Squeeze first opened. You can feel the great karma from the moment you walk in the door. The energy here is vibrant and the people, both staff associates and guests WANT to be here and it shows. We like to call it a "love-fest."

The Downtown Truckee Squeeze In got its name from its tiny-ness: 10'3'' wide and 62 feet deep. 14 tables, that's it.

In 2004, Gary and Misty Young bought Squeeze In after having loved it as guests for some 15 years.

And then came the Northwest Reno, Nevada location!

In February 2008, the Youngs (along with daughter and son-in-law, Shila and Chad Morris) opened the Reno Squeeze In at the corner of McCarran and Las Brisas Blvds in northwest Reno. The families took a completely empty shell of a building and built out what has become THE breakfast and lunch spot in northwest Reno.

The Northwest Squeeze seats 114 inside, and when the weather's nice, we can seat an additional 46 guests on our patio. Well-behaved and leashed pets are welcome on the patio. We'll even hook 'em up with a bowl of water and some dog food from King's Row Pet Hospital.

Then came our location in South Reno, Nevada!

Opened on April 1, 2011, the South Reno Squeeze In is the largest of the four restaurants, with a seating capacity of up to 150 guests, and even more on the patio when open.

We're were so thankful to open a third location in a time when many restaurants were closing their doors. And we're stoked to bring the same fun and great quality food to this expanding area of Reno.

See Press Release here on PR Web.

The fourth location is in Sparks, Nevada!

Happy guests at the Sparks Squeeze In

On August 18th, 2012 we opened our Sparks location. This time, we went back to our tried and true layout of the "mothership" restaurant, the original in Truckee. Long and narrow with guests on one side of the wall, and the kitchen on the other! We love being in this neighborhood!

Hours of Operation

All three locations are open 7am to 2pm everyday, 363 days a year. Weekdays you can get in without a horrendous wait. Weekends are busiest, so come early or late, or expect to wait - which is cool too - we'll serve you coffee or our signature "flammable" bloody marys, mimosas or bellinis to make the wait totally doable.
