Have eaten there quite a lot of times. I find the food delicious, most of the time we get the food to go, staff has always treated us really good. Recently they went under a new remodel and have a brand new side of the restaurant which is a nice addition. It really good authentic Mexican food. Bean... read more

This used to be a place to go before we hit the bars on Friday nights!!! Have been gone for over 30 years but always manage to stop by every few years. Havent been back since the remodel, was a little worried the food had changed. But much to my relief the food was just a good as it always... More

Solid menu many choices good food. You first receive an interesting fresh salsa dish and beans with chips. The salsa is fresh and different with its thick cut ingredients.

I have not been to New Mecca Cafe in a long time so when I went I was surprised to see they had expanded. The location has more room for seating and you are not as crowded anymore. I had lunch with several friends and we all ordered a variety of food from enchiladas, nachos, hamburger, BLT sandwich, burritos, tacos... More

We came here due to the great word of mouth. I was told this was the place to eat. I was told this place was legendary. I beg to differ. We are still sitting here without any food or drinks. We had to basically beg the waitress to take our order as well as chios and salsa. . Our plates... More

Me and my husband go here together in the summer to eat outside and we use them for our annual Halloween costume party at work! Always on time and high quality authentic food.

We have been going there for years. There isn't a place like it. When we get the craving for Mecca, no other Mexican restaurant will do. Chips, salsa and bean dip with cheese for free, not to many places will do that for you these days. Great food at a fair price. Downtown Pittsburg isn't the nicest area, but they... More

Food is great! So take it to go!!! But make sure you check to see if it's what you ordered first! We used to live close by and was there often but always had unpleasant interaction with owner/worker. He would treat us like we were wasting his time. The food is really good authentic Mexican food. Bean dip is amazing!... More

Are you looking for Mexican food? Then stop reading other reviews as you are now at the right place. The best in the county. When I get a craving I will drive the 40 minutes to my house (each way) to eat there. Oh the days when I lived closer and that fix so much easier to fix. You cannot... More

As with other reviewers, we have been eating at "the Mecca" for more than 40 years . . from the down-trodden, deep city days, to the cleaned up downtown of today. But, this review is NOT about downtown, it is about the food, the service and the people. I took five friends in late Friday night, and we were all... More
