“Great food in the Village”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

After 15 summers in Big Bear, we finally found our favorite dinner spot! This Mexican food was delicious, delicious, delicious!! We sat outside on the patio, and four of us had a real feast. Even the salsa is terrific. Service was outstanding, atmosphere was sooo lovely, and every bite was impressive. The selection is really varied, and they were exceptionally accomodating. Highly recommend this for a leisurely, relaxing, enjoyable meal of tasty food.

“Very good mexican food.”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

I am not a great fan of mexican food, but I must say their food tastes very good, is freshly made and is not heavy. Did not try their margaritas, which is a specialty. Quick and friendly service; moderate prices. Outdoor patio dining is a must during the summer. I think its the best mexican place in Big Bear; same owner at La Hacienda?

“The best Mexican food I've tasted!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Great service that was quick and friendly. From the chips and salsa to the entrees everything was the best that I've eaten. I could go on and on, but I will just say if you like Mexican cuisine and you are at Big Bear Lake don't pass up a chance to eat there!!!
