Wrightwood, Elevation 6,000 ft. is located on the North Face of the San Bernardino San Gabriel's Mt's. The Summertime population is about 3,300. Located on Highway 138 only 15 miles off I-15, it's the easiest mountain drives in southern California.
One of those places the locals all know about and want to keep to themselves, is known as the Mexico Lindo Restaurant located on the way down from the slopes above town just before you get to the main Highway leading back down to Highway 138.
As of February the Mexico Lindo still retained its 4 star rating (02/05/2008) and even though it has been a few years since I and my friends ate there, a friend of mine who was on the MT skiing assured recently, me that the restaurant was still as spicy and hot as ever and he was just talking about the ski bunnies.
Open late, hot soup and spicy salsa after a long night at Mountain High. They usually close around 9:30/10:00 at night after opening late in the morning, unless it is really slow when all of the snow is gone from the MT's. So.. it is a great place to eat at after nightboarding/skiing at mountain high. (food is just tastier after mountain-fun). Mexico-lindo is just down the street from the resort, the food is served piping hot, and they are so friendly here. I always help myself to a bowl of soup and lots of chips.. mmm.
For those of you who like your fajitas hot and juicy and a meal that will fill you up after a long day on the slopes, these are what you what. The meat is surprisingly tender (even the chicken), the onions and bell peppers perfectly caramelized. I had so much on my plate that I was able to take the leftovers home and share them.
