We've been going to this restaurant for 40 years, and it is the standard by which we judge all Mexican restaurants.

One of the best places in the whole San Francisco/Bay Area to get the best Mexican food with the most reasonable price. Staff are very cordial and attentive to the customers' needs and wants and of course, there is no comparison with regards to their delicious meals. A must place to visit when you are within 50 miles of Pittsburg,... More

I was once in Tahoe when the hotel checkin person said "You're from Pittsburg? When you get back, go to the Mecca for me"! I was amazed. It's a casual family-friendly Mexican restaurant with really good food, especially the bean dip.

This is our "go to" Mexican food in this area! New Mecca is usually crowded with locals looking for a good meal. We love their bean dip, and their tacos. Personally, I love albondigas night too! Good place for families, and the service is quick.

This Restaurant is a classic in Pittsburg. The food is still very good, the atmosphere is always crowded and noisy. Great for catering. The owner is a wonderful contributor to the Community!

The food here is delicious with plenty of choices from mild to very hot. It is not close to where we live, but it is worth the effort to make the drive. The service is quick, attentive and courteous. The New Mecca also offers catered meals that are a treat for special occasions.

Nothing special . not as authentic as I would like but filling . I orders a combo plate and for the flavors were there . I have had them catered before and they did a real good job . I guess you need to know what to order.
