“Amazing Chile Rellenos!!! Damn, I'm craving one now. The Basura burrito is a life changer, for better or worse. We have NO REGRETS! Just for the sheer size alone and comedic aspect (it had us rollin all night whenever we'd glance over and realize we still had to finish it). This entree made our trip extremely memorable. They don't mess around with the quantity of pork and goodies they jam up in there. You must spiritually prepare for something like this, but you will be enlightened afterwards. GODSPEED! & get it wet, for sure. Half roja half verde. Service was ehhhh but it's not really about anything else but the BASURA!! Naw but really, don't skimp on the freakin salsa when we have a 10-pound burrito to take down. & smiling always helps :)“

“It's a nice setting in the mountains. The inside is a little noisy and has a bar in a large room for dining. I chose outside, and it was great. The service was awesome, very helpful with a smile. I had the tempra avocados for a starter they were great. I highly recommend it. The burger and fries with fruit were the bomb right on point. This is a big burger. I could only eat half.“

UCLA Lake Arrowhead Lodge Dining Room American • $$$
850 Willow Creek Rd, Lake Arrowhead - 5.96 miles

“It's a charming, mountain lodge-like setting, surrounded by trees, fireplaces lit. The lobby fills with guests, awaiting the 6:30 pm start time. On cue and en masse, servers enter the lobby and escort large parties of guests into the dining room, with great efficiency (key word). The large groups appear to be students from graduate school programs; others may be large family gatherings. The menu is largely prix fixe, the only choice being the entree: beef or chicken, and the servers are cheery and, yes, efficient. Large trays of food pour forth form the kitchen. It's clearly pre-prepared: the soup is luke warm at best, the salad is pre-dressed; both still taste "OK". The entree is the weak spot: the beef is pretty dry and flavorless, saved only by the sides of veggies and mashed potatoes (the chicken is reportedly "fine"). No options for wine or beer with the meal. The dessert is some bland pudding. With the efficient serving, the entire meal takes 30 minutes; we could have stayed longer, but the large parties of students were a bit too lively for our tastes. No tipping allowed, which is a shame, since the service was cheery and so... efficient.“
