We went for an early lunch and beat the crowd. Sat outside on the patio, not much to look at being roadside with the Bear Creek Lodge across the street. The service was a bit spotty, quick on the initial setup, medium on the drink ordering and service. A few larger parties showed up and that really slowed things down.... More

The outdoor tables, crowded, lively place turned into a very long wait and mediocre food. The service was slow but it could have been because it was a busy Sunday afternoon. Our waitress was super sweet but did not refill our chips. The food was bland. I ordered two chicken tacos and couldn't find the chicken. The others in our... More

We ate there 2 times just to give it a fair chance. $1 shredded beef tacos were flavorless mush / fish tacos were rotten / spoiled. We were charged 1.50 for a TINY guacamole and $1 for a TINY side of ranch. They kept taking our 1/2 full chips to refill and then charged us $1 for each refill -... More

A varied menu and great service. The owners are there to make sure you are happy and we always are. The salads and authentic Mexican dishes are freshly made and delicious. Great salsas too.

The food was pretty good. There were a lot of cars in the parking lot and we got there just before it got crowded. The restaurant was very clean, had a good salsa bar, and the service was excellent.

We ate here during our quick trip to Big Bear based on TA recommendations. The food was okay, but nothing we had here was worth raving about. Nachos were good but nothing out of the ordinary, carne asada was fair, and even the grilled cheese we ordered for a picky eater was only average. Honestly, my favorite part of the... More

You have to go here for Mexican food. A gem on the way into town. Great portions, fresh and menudo to die for.... Support this family business. Great service and a tasty margarita as well.

Had two meals (one dinner, one lunch) at this restaurant. It happened to be right across from our lodging at Bear Creek Resort. Without knowing the details, we got the feeling that it is family owned and operated, like having a meal in a friend's home. I was fighting a bad cold when in Big Bear over Thanksgiving so decided...

My wife and I live in the Big Bear Valley and we visited the Azteca for the first time tonight. We live nearby and drive by this place all the time but have never stopped. Recently, my sister-in-law told us about the place stating they have the best mole she has ever tasted. Tonight, we had the Don Juan Burrito... More
