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

The New Mecca Cafe, or the Mecca as it's known to locals is a generational family owned and operated Mexican restaurant in the heart of Old Pittsburg. My family like so many others have been frequenting the establishment for generations. Many a tall tale to be told about the early days and old booths. Recently expanded and renovated it maintains...

I haven't been home in years. So glad that nothing has changed, except for the location. They have the best Mexican food, ever! If you are in the area, give them a try. You will not be disappointed! They are the bomb!

Just got up from my nap after having eaten lunch here. OMG. Huge portions - I ordered a combination and in addition to the taco, enchilada and tamale with rice and beans they plopped down a huge and delicious dinner salad. That could have been a meal in itself. I was challenged to finish this meal - and could not.... More

New Mecca has always been a staple in Pittsburg. It's a friendly place, busy with all the local characters in our city. I like the new outdoor seating on Railroad Ave. It's always been known for it's bean dip, at least to me. The rest of the menu is good, but I'm almost always too full to finish my meal... More

Living in Pittsburg I am always looking for new and different places to eat. I tried the New Mecca Cafe and it was very busy on Sunday. the atmosphere is casual, but I was quickly seated and served. The service was very good quick and it did not take long to get my food even though it was quite busy.... More

Having lived in Pittsburg all my life, I frequented this restaurant a lot. Now that I live in Arizona, I go there every time I am in town. The food is great and the staff is very attentive. Downtown Pittsburg has changed a lot for the good and looks beautiful!! I can't find chilequilas here in Arizona and I miss... More
