This is one of my favorite places to eat. If you havent been to a Cronic Tacos before go. Its like a subway for burritos and tacos on steroids. Prices are a little high but they need to be for the amount of condiments and food you get.

Good food, great fish taco's. The food is fresh and it has a nice patio to eat outside. Good place to run to for a real taco and a quick beer.

Easily the freshest Taco I ever ate. My daughter loved the bean burrito. Great location if you are headed to the boat, beach or staying at the Best Western hotel across the street.

Best ingredients at great prices. We have been going here for years and love the friendly service. I especially like the fact that I can choose each of the ingredients going into my taco, burrito, etc.

For a quick bite, we had a fish taco and a shrimp taco. The sauce they had was just spicy enough and cool at the same time. I had the cilantro, onions and cabbage, and the combo was delicious. We upgraded to a meal, sharing the beans and rice (you can choose from several options of beans and rice), chips... More
