We stopped for tacos today at the Lucerne Valley location of La Cocina de Mexico (aka The Yellow Place). I am very happy to report that the food is delicious & fresh. We both got carnitas tacos which are our lunch time favorite - no disappointment there. The menu & prices are the same as in Big Bear. The new place is clean, the owner is friendly just as he was when he was up here. His family is running the restaurant in Big Bear now & we have eaten there many times since the new place was opened. It will definitely be a stop before heading up the hill whenever we are in Lucerne. It is a small place, just west of Cafe 247. It is in the same building as the Cattleman's Cafe Pasta & Pizza. I had no idea there was such a restaurant row along there! We eat at Adelitas occasionally (they have beer) and the China House sometimes as well. Have yet to try Kallins or the other pizza place.

I truly feel that Cocina de Mexico in Big Bear City (across from the fire department) has the best tacos in the valley!

I’m hoping that they have improved their “Tamales”. It’s been sometime but I was very unsatisfied with the quality with the ones that I purchased.

Yeah, I don't care for their tamales either, too much masa & very little filling (in my opinion) but everything else we have tried has been delicious. Hubby has the habit bad - can't go without a couple of carnitas tacos for lunch at least twice a week. 🌮😜

El Coyote Loco has good Mexican food and a nice place to sit inside. They taco salad bowls are yummm! Down by the Burger Depot - home of the best onion rings in San Berdoo county!

Hi All! Does anyone have any recommendations for an electrician in BBL? We are looking to run power for a new outdoor light and a new outlet today or tomorrow.
