Excellent Choice for regular & exotic Mexican food.

Taco Mesa is somewhere I haven't been in years, which is why it was wonderful to walk in tonight, order food & have it come out fresh and hot and tasting every bit as good as I remember it tasting. Tonight I enjoyed two tacos one was a grilled salmon and the other was a grilled calamari...both... read more

Consistently delicious. Best shrimp tacos in town. They have a really good fresh fruit salad that you can put honey over to pump it up. Big menu, and friendly help. Not a fancy place, but so good.

This isn't a typical Mexican food restaurant. It is more of a healthy American style Mexican food. I have been there a few times and some of there food is really good and some isn't really what I like. My favorite item is the Carnitas Torta, it is one of the best Tortas I have ever had. But there chicken... More

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.
