The place with no signs!

I met a friend there for lunch on a gorgeous summer afternoon! It’s located in the quaint Orange Circle, encased in weathered brick. If you know it’s there, you will have no problem finding it but there no signs to tell you who they are. I had shrimp tacos with jicama shells and my friend had the... read more

The beef in the steak tacos tasted like filet mignon.. Tender! The sauces are all made from scratch and the complex flavor/combinations were great. The mole on the shrimp was also fantastic and unusual compared to the standard moles I have eaten. Can't miss here.

We came here on a double date, and I had expectations based on the reviews. But I was so disappointed. What's good: the location is ideal just a block from the Orange Circle. This is a happening, vibrant spot. But there is so much I did not like. First, the wait was atrocious. It was a Saturday night, but we... More

This is Mexican cuisine at its finest. Food and presentation impeccable. Decor is charming. Convenient parking can be difficult. Usually a wait, but downtown Orange is charming to explore while you are waiting.

Great Mexican in the heart of Old Town! Great margaritas and specialty cocktails! Wonderful appetizers, especially the Duck Taquitos, great guacamole and salsa. The Enchiladas Suiza is spectacular! Many very cool and delicious taco options! Very cool electic exposed brick atmosphere. Service is friendly and perfectly attentive. Go early or make a reservation, they get very business after 6PM!

This place is outstanding. From the awesome salsa and guacamole to the enchiladas suizas and a great kid's taco. We found it because of TripAdvisor, and the reviews are spot on. A home run!

This is not your typical beans and rice kinda place. It's a step up - classy., Homemade tortillas, beautiful beans, normal portions that are full on flavor not loaded with bland carbs. I am vegetarian and I will say that there are very limited choices (hence 4 stars). For dinner there is essentially a mushroom taco - but it's very... More

The food at Gabbi's is always yummy, but I love the seasonal notes to menu, in salads or choices. Guacamole is the best with pomegranate seeds!!

My mother and I have been wanting to come here for weeks now and we finally did. We preferred to sit at the bar because we only wanted a margarita and their churro dessert. Well there were no decent open spots at the bar so we asked the host for a table and he said if we are only getting... More
