11/2016- On a recommendation that raved about this place we went. Please be aware that all the reviews about the "patio" seating don't apply during winter months unless you want to sit in the snow. It is an open patio and rather cold after sunset even if dry. The interior is not very spacious, but people usually don't linger there... More

We took Mom out for dinner and enjoyed chicken fajitas with rice and beans. Also some refreshing margaritas to drink! The staff were friendly and helpful during our visit. Atmosphere was festive and comfortable with reasonable prices.

We had breakfast, or brunch there both Saturday and Sunday because we enjoyed it. We were there in summer and sat outside. The service was good and the plates were really good. The bloody mary's are big and tasty too. My friend's dad is a world-class chef and he enjoyed it too. We will go back!

I stopped at quite a few restaurants near my hotel and they were either closed, or really slow in taking care of people... just got in my car and drove... and voila! Gotta love Mexican food, I am rarely let down. This place looks popular with locals, fairly intimate... I got food to go... was served efficiently and friendly, good... More

We were promptly seated outside (we could have chosen inside). The servers did an awesome job. Our drinks and chips were brought promptly. The food, however, wasn't very good. My cheese enchilada had so little cheese that I had to hunt for it. The shredded beef in the taco was mushy. Not sure how that can happen. Two baskets of... More

Went for dinner. Chips and salsa average. I ordered a taco salad with shredded beef. Kind of disappointed. It actually had very little lettuce and a lot of meat, but meat was mediocre. My wife had chicken fajitas that was actually better than average. Mixed results in food quality. I would go again, but just not expect too much.

Outstanding! They have just expanded and improved their Patio dining area. Outstanding improvement. Possibly one of the best Mexican restaurants in Big Bear? Outdoor eating at its best. Try it this summer, you won't be disappointed.

We have been coming here for dinner since they opened about ten years ago. We live out of the area and only get here one to two times a year. It is family owned, a lovely family, whose one young son was even busing tables at an early age. Over the years we have gotten to know the family better... More

Great find in Big Bear Lake. Some of the best traditional Mexican eats (american dishes too). Nothing fancy, service was superb and fast. Staff very attentive and very friendly. Bar menu also good, outdoor patio dining with good weather a plus.

I LOVE Azteca tacos...all of them!!!! Today I got a bean tostada and I found the portion to be a bit on the small side. But other than that I've been extremely happy here. Great margaritas too.
