Taco Tuesday

Really great veggie tacos! We love the slaw on the side, and all the salsas. The green one is our favorite

Mesa Bowl

Talk about flavor explosion! I'm yet to try something on the menu that isn't fresh and full of flavor. My absolute favorite lately has been the Mesa Bowl. It's filling without leaving you feeling overly full. The fact that their menu is health conscious makes it a top choice for when I'm craving Mexican. Oh and the salsa bar is so good!

These nachos are so yummy it's hard to put your fork down when you're full! And they are colorful which is an added bonus.

Taco Tuesday

My boyfriend Ryan and I have been going to the Orange Taco Mesa for years now, and its LITERALLY our favorite OC spot. Religiously we went every Taco Tuesday to eat their $1.50-$2.00 al pastor tacos (fish and veggie are also great) which were massive and get their bottomless chips! We love the entire staff who are so kind and friendly. We always ask for a reusable ceramic bowl so we can use it for our salsa. Now that we live in LA, it's always a treat for us to drive down and eat from our favorite taco restaurant and see old friends.

Carne Asada Burrito

I've been a fan of Taco Mesa for many years now, I felt it was finally time to leave a review! I can honestly say I've never been disappointed in a meal there, and I've had just about everything on the menu. My favorites are the carne aside burrito, blackened chicken burrito, and also their breakfast items. The staff is always friendly and the restaurant always spotless clean, not to mention the salsa bar is the best around. Thank you Taco Mesa, I'll be back soon!

Taco Tuesday

This is for sure the best taco tuesday in Orange County! The atmosphere is so authentic and fun. The staff is very kind and very helpful. These are the best tacos! The meat is great quality and the salsa is tasty and refreshing. Also the chips are the perfect amount of crunch and saltiness. The guacamole is has chunks in it and so tasty. The veggie tacos are amazing too- black beans and grilled veggies, the perfect ratio. Tuesdays, the tacos are $1.50-$2 each. Overall, this place is a 10/10 and my favorite place to spend a taco tuesday with friends and family :)

Award Winning Burger al Pastor

This burger is heavenly. I also come for Taco Tuesday often because the green tortillas are so yummy, but any other day of the week I crave this burger. The pineapple and blue cheese are such a tasty combo, it's truly one of a kind. Not what you expect from a Mexican restaurant but an excellent surprise.

Bean & Cheese Burrito

Best Mexican food in town! I love this burrito and order it every time. Their chips and salsa bar is great as well.

Eechilds about 2 months ago


My husband got this for the first time and then halfway through dinner was like, "Hey, where's my corn?" Someone (I can't say who, exactly) ate most of it when he wasn't looking. It's a mystery!

Flan de Queso

I was skeptical trying this because I've always proclaimed that my ex's mother made the very best flan but taco Mesa's is definitely a close second! Great Flan!

Steak Taco

Amazing fresh food. I had the steak tacos. They were to die for. The couple sitting next to me had the chips and guacamole and I almost stole one right from the basket they looked so good. I had to go get some for myself and they tasted as good as they looked!

Award Winning Burger al Pastor

Was a great burger. The grilled pineapple on the burger took this burger to the next level and the meat was nice and juicy. I let my mom have a bite and she said it reminded her of home. She hasn't been home in 20+years!

Alambre Taco

The Alambre taco from Taco Mesa is one of the best tacos (if not the best!) I've ever had in my life! You really can't go wrong here, I love EVERYTHING that I try including the Chille Colorado taco (SOOOO GOOD!), House made Horchata, Calamari tacos, Chille Rilleno, Flan.. the list goes on! I'm also obsessed with the chipotle cream sauce and the creamy green (jalapeño?) salsa. Thank you Taco Mesa for being one of my favorite places to go, my whole family has fallen in love with you too! Best Mexican food in town! :)

Their nachos are so great. Perfect amount of toppings. I add blackened chicken. It's a whole meal. I love all of their food from their tacos, enchiladas, burritos, breakfast items, and flan! Great service as well.

Carne Asada Burrito

Taco Mesa has the best carne asada burrito around! It's authentic, but still has all of the healthful elements I try to keep in my diet! The meat is tender and flavorful and the salsa bar can't be beat! If you're looking for a hearty burrito that's still healthy this is a must!

Blackened Chicken Quesadilla

Soooooo good!! Such good quality Mexican food, you can really taste the difference. This is me and my roommates go to spot for margaritas too! They are so fresh and taste soooooo good!

Mesa Bowl

Make it vegan by swapping the brown rice (has butter) with the Mexican rice. So so good and so much better than a Chipotle bowl. I added salsa & cilantro from the salsa bar - perfection.

Vegetariana Quesadilla

Taco Mesa really knows how to do veggie items. We try to eat vegetarian, most of the time, and everything is really fresh at Taco Mesa. Love this quesadilla... delicious!

Mesa Burrito

I get this, no meat, and it is easily two meals' worth of food. Have half tonight for dinner, half for lunch tomorrow - it reheats really well. Taco Mesa definitely knows how to do veggie and make it taste delicious!

King Tostada

What you order when you want to be healthy, but still full and satisfied at the end of your meal. I get it veggie style (no meat) and it's always fresh and yummy.

Blackened Burritos

Absolutely fantastic burrito! Great flavors and the side of beans and rice was a tasty pairing! The side carrots are also a brilliant pairing. All in all, couldn't be happier and will be coming again! 😋
