Sonora Cantina is a must visit request whenever friends come up to Big Bear Lake. Great atmosphere, indoor & outdoor seating, great food & selection, reasonably priced, fantastic staff and a full bar.

We had the carne asada burrito, the shrimp burrito and chicken tostada. All were huge! Very good, we had leftovers for the next day. Service was wonderful, it was very busy, but waitress was still attentive.

This place can't be beat. Tacos are tasty, served fast, and the margaritas are not weak. A great date night consists of dollar tacos 🌮 and a movie in the village for $5.
