Just moved to Newport and a girl friend told me I had to try Taco Mesa and I am so glad I did! Called in an order and was ready in 10 mins. We ordered the Asada nachos, taquitos and shredded beef tacos! The nachos were some of the best I have ever had! Not overly sloppy or greasy. The carne asada was so juicy and flavorful and smothered in jalapeños and all the goodies. The crispy tacos were everything you would want! Fresh, tender meat and amazing salsa! The salsa bar was impeccable! Their green salsa, I could eat by itself! They use all fresh, healthy ingredients which shows me they take pride in their cooking and their customers! This will be a new go to spot for sure!!

Lobster Taco

I am always searching for good lobster tacos and Taco Mesa for sure wins the award for best lobster taco in OC for a quick service restaurant. Mix that with their amazing horchata and you're in for a good dinner. Yum!

Taco Tuesday

We are so thankful for such a delicious and affordable place like Taco Mesa right down the street for us. The staff is always so kind, even during this crazy time of sheltering in place. We love to come here for their Taco Tuesday taco and drinks deals (on margaritas and sangrias)- and the restaurant always has a fun, chill and laid back vibe. I love all the tacos (you can pick from shredded pork, beef and chicken), but in my opinion, the fish taco is always where it's at!! So delicious and hits the spot every time.

Taco Tuesday Special Chile Verde/Roja tacos are my absolute favorite; I get them every time I go. This is the place to be for Taco Tuesday. Amazing food, great atmosphere, and the friendliest staff. Try it and you won't be disappointed!

Taco Tuesday

I love my Taco Mesa. I have taken guest from work visiting from out of town and I referred Taco Mesa to my supervisor and we took the entire staff there for lunch. I surprised the staff on a few occasions with breakfast burritos and they loved them. My husband was impressed with the unique style of food that is offered yet it's authentic.

Love the tacos here! The tortilla is so yummy with any filling. The best part is the watermelon radishes they have in the salsa bar and the creamy avocado salsa.

Best Chilaquiles ever!!!!

Excellent flavor especially with the sauce. Tender and lean. Get it with the beans and rice. The flavors all complement each other. Dont forget some of the avocado salsa to dip the corn tortillas into. Add some of the spicy vegetables to the mix and you're in heaven

Alambre Taco

A friend and I ordered a few of your items and every single one was a hit. She's Mexican and has high standards for authentic Mexican food whereas I've been disappointed with many tacos in the past. We were both dancing in the parking lot while chowing down on everything! Sooooo good! The customer service was top notch also. Thank you Taco Mesa! We have plans to return today as we've both been daydreaming of the food since we tried it for the first time two days ago!

Morenita Quesadilla

Decided to order in for Cinco de Mayo yesterday and am so glad I did! This is going to be my new go-to taco Tuesday place! We had the morenita quesadilla which was fantastic. Also ordered the taquitos and gordita tacos which were equally as delicious. The ingredients tasted fresh and the meals were so tasty!

Best of the West Taco

Best Sheimp tacos I've ever had in my life. I can't not get them every single time I come in. The way the shrimp is blackened is amazing and the sauces to compliment them are wonderful together.

Ensalada de pollo con Prosciutto

I have had this amazing salad several times, just now getting to review. Just say I absolutely love it, as all of their food! It is quite large & they don't skimp on anything. I love it so much I'm ordering it right after completing this long over due review! Ok, I'm having this amazing salad again tonight! Cannot get enough!!

Carne Asada Burrito

This place is THE best food period. Fresh and healthy without sacrificing taste. Plenty of options if you are vegetarian or gluten free. Even more if you're not. Every time a friend comes up from Mexico I take them here and they are always ask to come back every time they visit.

Blackened Burritos

When I moved to Orange County, I searched all over for he great tacos. Taco Mesa has the most delicious blackened chicken tacos ever! Tender chicken, great sauce and cabbage. Then you add their salsa! It's by far the best salsa anywhere in OC!!! so good! I also love their flautas and flan. I've never liked flan but this flan is so good and creamy. Yummmm! You can't go wrong with Taco Mesa. My favorite mexican restaurant in the area.

Stuffed Jalapeños

The stuffed jalapeños at Taco Mesa are to die for. So cheesy and spicy, but not too spicy. I'm into medium spice so I can split an order with another person. I also love the horchata with the cinnamon they sprinkle on top and the nachos wow so good.
