We stopped here on our way to visiting the mission and were pleasantly surprised. With only patio seating and to go's the food was excellent. We ordered chicken wings (served with choice of dressing, but no celery), sweet potato fries and chili. Everything was served better than expected. People around us ordered meals, and each meal could have served 2-3... More

Catch great drinks and amazing food to match on the main drag in San Juan Capistrano. Just off the train, or an easy drive. Great prices.

You get fast service, The salsa and chips were very tasty but the tacos and burritos were OK for a fast type food facility.

We live nearby and have tried most of the restaurants in SJC. Mission Grill is situated in a great location - right across the street from the mission and right in the center of the town. It's a great place to sit outside and enjoy a drink and dinner. We tried the tacos, which were good, but not great. Lots... More

Fast service. The turkey burger was"huge" and good. The wheat bread bun is one of the best I have ever had. The wife had a tostada salad which was ok. The location is perfect.

Prior to eating at the Mission Grill, the best carne asada burrito I'd ever had was at El Nopalito in Encinitas, CA. Well, in my humble opinion, Mission Grill tops theirs by just a slim margin. Why? I think it's a combination of a more flavorful steak coupled with adding just a touch of cilantro. Then, there's the fact that... More

Love everything about this place. Friday night karaoke was fun to watch and listen to. Laid back atmosphere, parking is a nightmare but it is worth it. The food is always good and the people who work there are always nice. Overall great place to go.
