We dined at La Familia a couple of times, always after having skied the full day. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the food is really inviting and delicious. The owner was pleased to talk to us - crazy Brasilians spending some time skiing!!

This little restaurant has wonderful breakfast burritos and is on the way to the CA Lodge at Heavenly. They are super quick and priced right! Don't pass this place up for fast food.

We didn't want a lot for lunch. I ordered a chicken tostada and my husband ordered 2 tacos. Very tasty especially with the salsa bar (mango was good). Friendly service and outside tables.

Mediocre food and service. Reasonably priced for this area. Ok for a family but there are much better Mexican Food restaurants in town.
