If you want Mexican food in Big Bear, go directly to Nuevo Vallarta. This low-key spot resides inside a random strip mall that has the curb appeal of Gary Busey in an Annie wig, but just ignore that. The menu is full of Mexican-American classics like a chile relleno burrito - or the 18-inch monster burrito for when the crew smokes out the cabin later.
