“Great low key lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

Chronic is growing franchise with many stores in Orange County. It's similar to Chipotle with a more low key mexican swing. Good for a quick and filling mexican lunch.

“KILLER FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2010

Been going to this place since they opened this location about 10 years ago.......This place is all about the food............small joint, a few stools, but pretty much take out only. The best mexican food in the area. BAR NONE!!! very authentic (try the al pastor) and just down right delicious. Perfect for stopping in post beach or while ridding bikes in Newport.

“Yummy, authentic, fast-tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2009

Found this place on trip advisor and made sure to stop in on our recent visit to Newport Beach. We got there a touch after their breakfast time, which wasn't being served and explained our love for chorizo - the mexican breakfast sausage. They made an order fresh just for us even though they were not serving breakfast anymore! And boy was it worth it! We ate there for lunch again a day later and loved the spicy pork taco. Thanks for the yummy memories!~
