Eclectic decoration, decent food (on the bland side, I should add) but nice experience. I had the menudo, was not bad but nothing really taste. Wife had a couple of tacos, same thing. Mexican beer $4.00... The place was quite pack despite the fact is not in the Village.

We love the chips and salsa here, and always try to bring some home. Service is excellent. Do not expect the entrees to arrive super fast - they are actually cooking it back there. Decor and atmosphere are fun. My kids like to go here every time we go to Big Bear.

Love this place~ Have to stop here on every trip to have chili relleno, fresh chips & delish margaritas! Best Mexican food in town!

Our anticipation of a great meal was set by great margaritas, great salsa, good chips, excellent & friendly service. Sadly, the food was terrible! Tacos tasted like meat had been simmered in dishwater, carne asada burrito was so tasteless even the salsa didn't help. we filled up on chips, salsa, margaritas & will never return
