Reviews for El Jacalito Grill

I would have given 5 stars but the chips were cold and the queso was barely warm. The main dish, chicken enchiladas, was delicious. Also the margaritas were fantastic as well as the service was great. We parked right next to this place between here and the liquor store. The outdoor seating facing the main street was also great.

The place looked popular throughout the week so i decided to try it during my last day in bigbear. The place was nice on a friday afternoon. They seated me quickly in nice patio seating. They even got me chips and salso quickly and my food followed suit.I ordered a beef red-wet burrito with cheese and sour cream.I did not like it. The carne asada was just meh, maybe even a little bit salty but still bland. It got a very synthetic sour taste from the cheese and some from the sauce....read full review

No trip to Big Bear would be complete without lunch at this restaurant that serves delicious Barbacoa (a super tender roast with rice and beans.) It's a delightful feast! We hoped it would be as good as we remembered - it was! Highly recommend.
