try anything blackened, it is good. if you think Alberto's is good, you won't like this-it has flavor, tastes good, and is different. usually busy, but worth the wait.

This is my very favorite Mexican restaurant in SoCal - and I have been living here for over 20 years. This is not a fancy place - so dress casual and comfortably. The prices are great and the kitchen is clean. Ask for Ricardo and tell him that Chrissy sent you! :)

Great Food always. Interesting Items, not your basic Mexican. Not much for atmosphere, but we keep going back for more.

Taco Mesa is the place to go for healthy and innovative Mexican food. Daily specials are always a good bet, as well as the blackened chicken tacos and salmon tacos. Very reasonably priced, and not the usual greasy food!

If you want good baja style food at a fair price and find where the locals eat, then this is your place. They have great daily special, personalized service and kids deals on Sunday.

I rarely eat from the regular menu, which has items like blackened chicken tacos, steak burritos, and the like. I am usually tempted by the specials. Tonight I had the Wild Alaskan Salmon special on a bed of mashed potatoes topped with a fresh mango salsa and a yummy sauce with fresh steamed vegetables, with a side of tortillas, corn... More

This is a terrific Mexican hole in the wall that tries to use fresh and often healthier ingredients. No greasy chips automatically handed out. They do a great job with fish and seafood. Love the lobster burritos when they have them. The blackened calamari and the blackened shrimp are great. We like them in tacos or over salad or on... More
