Although Gabbi’s is a modest looking small restaurant in downtown Orange, its menu is modern and exciting. Some of the best Mexican fare I’ve had in a while. Highly recommended.

Salsa and sauces fresh and flavorful. Black beans were amazing. Coming back for Piscoe Sours which are hard to find. Baracha Beans were great. Nobody at our table was disappointed.

We got a table just and just before the Ducks game nearby. The salsa and guacamole were very good, and a nice margarita stafted the meal well. Ceviche concluded well and built a bridge to the main course. The steak, homemade corn and wheat tortillas...More
