“Our standard for all Mexican restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

We've been going to this restaurant for 40 years, and it is the standard by which we judge all Mexican restaurants. While there space has doubled in the last few years, and Pittsburg has cleaned the neighborhood up immensely, the friendly and attentive staff, the prompt service, and the great food is still wonderful.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

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, CA It is worth the drive to savor good food and enjoy the ambiance of the City of Pittsburg.

“Pittsburg's Most "Famous" Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

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. Lunch or dinner, be prepared for a wait as it's quite popular and also does a brisk takeout business, though there is quite a bit more seating since they remodeled.

“Fave Local Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.
