The food and service were fine, but don’t trust the prices online. The online menus we saw were $4-$5 cheaper than what they are in the restaurant.

Decent Mexican food at a reasonable price. Their fries are amazing, so can't go wrong with any of their options!!!

So, I find it's still a great place for Mexican food. Easy to forget about, tucked away in that little corner. It's tiny and unique. Only one cook ( I believe ) and one waitress when I went this time. So, a little slow because it was slightly crowded. I felt she prefered the locals and didn't know me as a local. A little impersonal and I had to ask for more salsa and my check and wait for a bit. Not too much of a problem because the food was still a fun experience. Yes, I will be back, and ask for extra salsa up front.

Can't really complain. Was average for the price. Quality of meat was good but, some sauces tasted canned. Good service and portions.

food was very bland!. my husband and I paid over 40 dollars for a tasteless burrito and a few enchiladas. not worth the price. the chips tasted store bought. with the many options big bear has, skip this one.

Had to use the laundromat next door and got hungry, so decided to order from Nuevo Vallarta. One torta one burrito and one coke. $32 plus. The worst torta I've ever had and I was told the burrito wasn't very good either. First they had forgotten the coke, but since I didn't drive away, I went back 30,mins later, and the young man did remember he had not given it to me. The one star is for his nice attitude. The lady owner/manager never bothered to say a word of welcome or crack a smile. Never going back.

Husband and I visited this restaurant in May, 2022. On the positive side, the salsa (and chips) were amazing; portions were generous; service was good; prices weee okay; and parking was easy. However,, our entrees (Chili rellanos) and Tosta Carne Asada were average, as best. Acceptable but not amazing.

When I am not in Big Bear I crave their Carne Asada burritos! When I am there I eat one burrito for each meal just so I get my fill. My husband makes his own salsa and it is hard for him to enjoy anyone else's but when I ask him what he loves about this place he said, their salsa. We can't wait to see you again, Vallarta Grill!!!

Who are these other reviewers? I hate to leave a bad review but nothing was redeeming about this place. The food was really bad, the service was somehow worse. The reviews and rating were totally misleading.

Little spot with good food. The sopes were a hit for our kids. Fajitas were so good! Great customer service. Glad we found this spot during our trip.

Best kept secret in Big Bear for Mexican food!! Highly recommend the taquitos, chili rellenos, California burrito, enchiladas! I'm sure everything else is good too, but just haven't ventured from the items previously mentioned! They also give you chips and their delicious salsa with your to go order which was a nice surprise. The staff is super friendly, and service is quick. While most restaurants in Big Bear are packed on the weekends, we are always able to get in and out rather quickly here. We live up here full time, and this is where we eat when we want Mexican food.
