This place flies under the radar. So stealthy there's no sign out front. The food is good and the menu has more than the standard items. The only problem is the crowds. Get there early or expect to wait.

If you are planning a trip around Anaheim and Disneyland Resorts you can not miss going out to Gabbi's. It is a very nice place, great atmosphere and delicious food.

GREAT eclectic Mexican food....never to be confused with the fast food joints that abound in the area. Very fresh and exciting food and don't let the long wait scare you away as it definitely is worth a visit...again and again!

It had been a while since I had been to the Orange Circle. Mom and I stopped in and the restaurant we intended to go to was closed. We happened on Gabbi's and what a happy accident! We had a lovely meal! I enjoyed the skirt steak and all of the lovely accompaniments that came with it! So many great... More

While in the area visiting Chapman, my daughter and I went to Gabbi's for dinner on the advice of a friend. We both like Mexican food, but I am a bit of a "food snob" according to my kids (ok...my friends too.) I prefer to know what I am eating, and it's always a bonus if it's in a nice... More

At this restaurant, there's a senora (lady) standing there ready to make any tortillas, corn or flour, for you when you order an entry with tortillas in it. They make the (chocolate) churros when you order them. I tried their skirt steak platter and it was very good. The accompanying roasted bell pepper and plantain banana (that come with the... More

The food here is great but it is a very small restaurant and reservations on the weekend for dinner is a must. There is really no where to sit and wait for your table. They have raised the prices in the past year which can be slightly over priced for Mexican food, but it is very good food. Not your... More
