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

Food is OK at best. Nothing special. VERY disappointed by their Taco Tuesday scam. Tacos are $1.50 each on Tuesday. However, those are only the "mini" tacos & not the full size tacos, for which they want $2.99. So for $1.50 you get a minsicule amount of meat, 6 shreds of cheese, some hot sauce, guacamole. About .50 cents worth... More

I have been to a couple other Chronic Tacos in the past, the food is pretty average. Sometimes it's super fresh and other times it just doesn't taste as good. They have large portions which is nice, and the staff is pretty friendly, I just feel like it lacks consistency sometimes. Still better than Taco Bell or any drive thru... More

The restaurant is set up with a bohemian attitude and the food (pork taco) is somewhat salty or briny I couldn't decide. There was nothing bad about it but when so much is self service I resent tip jars and places on the receipt for adding in a tip prior to getting the food. Tips are for sit down restaurants... More

Chronic is what it says it is; a "Chronic" habit. Good thing they have multiple locations because its my choice of great tacos and burritos in OC. Whether you like street tacos, tostada salad bowls or breakfast burritos, you wont be disappointed! Check out any Chronic in the morning and you will find all the contractors (not just the Mexicans.)... More

This is the place your surfing teenager loves because he got a big burrito. Honestly this chain restaurant is just standard but it has a decent patio that it shares with a crowded breakfast place and is a taco and coke common fast food joint with few sparks of imagination.

Good eats! Small little dive of a place, but good to get a quick lunch or dinner bite. Best to eat outside.
