Get To Know Big Bear: Hacienda Bar & Grill
Get to know local restaurant Hacienda Bar & Grill and all they do for our community!
A taste of Mexico. That is what Gus and Nancy Gonzalez are passionate to share with our community. Both born and raised in Mexico, Nancy and Gus offer a delicious dining experience infused with authentic Mexican recipes, music and culture.
"We aim to provide customers with the freshest foods, a casual and festive service and a delicioso dining experience! Our goal is to keep bringing the freshest Mexican food and drinks in a trendy atmosphere to the mountains."
The duo started their business venture in 2000 with the first Jacalito Grill located under the Bowling Barn, and the second location in The Village in 2003. They started Hacienda in 2006.
"Our food is prepared fresh everyday," Nancy says, "and we offer something for everyone, a few of the American favorites and most of the Mexican favorites in a family sports bar setting."
Vegan and vegetarian options are also available as well as catering for special occasions.
Nancy and Gus are active supporters of the community.
"We help raise money for local programs like the Big Bear Mountain Top Strings and families in need. Our staff will sometimes donate their time to do shore and trail clean ups" Nancy shared.
When asked what Hacienda is most proud of...
"Being able to accomplish many dreams by doing something we are passionate about it; seeing our customers leaving with a corazón contento!"
