Top Notch Mexican Food

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.

An all time favorite, such a huge selection, best fresh fish and carnitas. We always stop by when were in the mood for good food.

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

Service is worse than the food. Never get he order right, food is old and sits in a warmer, fry cook in the back takes orders out of turn, taco maker can't take an order if her life depended on it. Line is too long fopr the sewage they serve called food. I will never set foot in this dump... 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.
