Carne Asada Burrito

Best Burrito in the world cooked to perfection!!!

Carnitas Taco

So delicious and flavorful! An explosion of savory goodness. Deep, subtle flavors with subtle balanced hues, held secure by a fresh organic corn tortilla and accentuated by robust salsas that enhance the experience. Ivan, Chris, and the rest of the crew welcome you warmly and treat you like family.

Sometime you stop at a place and expect the normal. Then out of no where an explosion of flavor hits your taste buds. I got the carnitas wet burrito. The Carnitas was full of flavor unlike most places where the carnitas is not so flavorful. The stuffed Jalapeños were fantastic, they have just the right amount of heat but not too much. The cheese is gooey, melted goodness without being overly cheesy. I highly recommend the Stuffed Jalapeños unless you don't like cheese or spicy. The staff is simply wonderful and made sure I had all of the extra goodies before I left. I'm so glad I stumbled upon this place.

I recently moved next to Taco Mesa, and I am in love with the tacos! I have had the lobster tacos, shrimp, but thanks to taco tuesday, I am obsessed with the crispy chicken tacos. I bring all of my guests that come to visit to Taco Mesa now for lunch or dinner. The food is amazing, staff is friendly, everything is clean, etc. I highly recommend Taco Mesa any day!

Chilaquiles con Pollo

Really good. Authentic and tasty. Tortillas cruchy, sauce with a lil kick, and shredded chicken melts in your mouth. Rice is fluffly and flavorful. Will order again. Biggest mistake I usually see with chilaquiles is that they cook the scrambled eggs separate and put it on top (chilaquiles are not nachos!), not the case here, Taco Mesa scrambled the eggs with the corn tortillas.

These are an amazing simple enchilada with a little spice. One of my all-time favorites! 😁

Wild Pescado Frito Taco

The fish tacos at Taco Mesa in Costa Mesa is amazing. Hands down one of the best Taco spot for tacos Tuesday in the OC. The fish is grilled perfectly. I love the condiments that they have. The green sauces and pickled veggies adds a nice crunch and texture to the tacos. Their other tacos are great too, such as the carne asada or carnitas. The meat is marinated with all the right spices and flavors. It is not too salty. Do yourself a favor! And, support this business during COVID. They offer great take outs tacos as well as. Easy to eat in the car 🚙 or on the go!

Blackened Burritos

I had the blackened chicken burrito with added pinto beans and no cheese. No cheese usually means no flavor, but this was actually one of the best burritos I've ever had! My hubby got the same burrito but gluten free and said it was amazing. We're ordering again tonight!

Mesa Bowl

I frequent Taco Mesa and tried multiple items from their menu from their Omelette Sonora, Machaca Taco, Steak Torta, Chicken Enchilada and Quesadillas. However, I absolutely can't get enough of their Mesa Bowl and I have to get it with their salmon. The perfect balance of flavor and the best meal after a morning hike. And don't forget about their salsas! Their green and red salsas are the best. If you're into spicy, they have a good kick. Taco Mesa is very fulfilling without the guilt!

Delicious! 2 is not enough. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Comes with chocolate sauce but honestly you don't need it.

Taco Tuesday

The portion to price ratio is so insane. And the quality of the food is spot on!!! They don't compromise on the quality, which I respect. My first Time I order 8 tacos expecting tiny street tacos and was surprised by the mouth watering full sized tacos. I can't rave enough about it.

King Tostada

The king tostada is an absolute paragon of flavor. The combination of fresh tortillas and chips, lettuce, beans, and more all perfectly fuse together and make a dish that is both light and filling and utterly delicious.

Wednesday - Burrito Madness

The Wednesday burrito special is my absolute favorite. The fish burrito, the salmon, the shrimp.. all blackened,, As a college student I am always looking for ethical and economically convenient priced foods, taco Mesa is so authentically made and flavored as well as filling. The vegetables have a zest to them, the meat is sizzled just to perfection. This place is my absolute favorite to eat. Seriously,I'd live here. I want to try everything.
