Family Run local Mexican Food

La Mulita is a small family run restaurant in Big Bear City and reminds me of being in Baja, a few booths and tables with a drink frig located near dining area. I want to love it, but, the food is not always consistent. Usually it is good, but, once the salsa had a hint flavor of seafood (which... read more

Good friendly service. Great food and I must say their tamales are the best in the Big Bear area. This is one of my favorite places to eat

After researching Big Bear restaurants on Trip Advisor, we decided to give this place a try. Upon arrival, we were somewhat put off by the exterior appearance. It is a VERY old building, but based on the reviews, we ventured inside anyway. The interior, though somewhat better than the outside, was stuck in time and cluttered. But again, because of... More

My wife and I have driven by this place for several years but never took the time to stop by. From the outside, it is nothing special as it is in one of the oldest buildings in Big Bear City (it has been a bar, restaurant, and many other businesses over the years). The interior is also nothing special as... More

It looked like the perfect "hole in the wall" type of homemade establishment. We were served stale tortilla chips and underwhelming salsa so we were a bit nervous about the food. Well, the food was unbelievably good. I got the special "Spicy Beef" which was in a green sauce with lots of black pepper and I am still craving it.... More

It was pretty busy but the servers were still there for a smile and very attentive to our group of 5. I had to take my plate home and enjoyed it the next day for lunch. Great place for margaritas!

If you like spicy, you'll love their salsa! Really the best on the mountain. I live in Big Bear and La Mulita really does have the best Mexican food. Everthing is fresh and from scratch. The staff is so friendly. Nothing fancy so don't expect ambiance, but absolutely do try it for good food!

Went in tonight for fish and shrimp tacos as the family is night skiing. Again....a wonderful meal, with nice service and good food. I got the fish taco and a shrimp taco...both superb. I called in advance and they were packing it up for me when I got there. The menu is in the local Big Bear phonebook, and they... More
