Mexican Food in Costa Mesa

Posted on June 16, 2009. Filed under: Restaurant Recommendations |

There are tons of Mexican food places in Costa Mesa. But not all of them are good… I love a good breakfast and veggie burrito. My husband loves a carne asada burrito, and we both can appreciate a quality quesadilla and dollar tacos. Our love for Mexican food has taken us to many places locally, so I thought I would share some of our experiences.

Great Mex
2360 Newport Blvd # A
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
(949) 645-1884
$1 Taco Tuesday and Friday
*Super crowded on Tuesdays, call ahead your order. Only go on Tuesdays for the tacos, it’s the best deal and best quality. They are so busy that anything else ordered on Tuesday and Friday is usually sub par. But all the other days, it is spot on. Their steak quesadilla is very yummy.

Roman’s Market
400 Newport Blvd # A3
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
(949) 548-5534
$1 Tacos every evening. True Mexican food here!
The BEST breakfast burritos. We love this place.

Taco Mesa
647 W 19th St
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
(949) 642-0629
They catered our wedding, so we are pretty big fans of this place all around. They have the best veggie burrito; it is filled with spinach, zucchini, mushrooms, tomato, onions, beans, rice and avocado. So wonderful.

El Matador
1768 Newport Blvd
Costa Mesa, CA 92627
(949) 645-0324
I hate paying more then a few bucks for a burrito, taco or taquitos. And at El Matador you are going to pay at least $10 for a burrito plate or taco plate. Sure, they throw some rice and beans on there, but it isn’t worth it to us. And no Taco Tuesday.

1262 Bristol St
Costa Mesa, CA 92626
(714) 754-6528
They have Margarita Mondays and Taco Tuesday and a great happy hour everyday until 7. Their $1 tacos are pretty big for what you pay. Sit in the bar during happy hour and you can get free food from their mini buffet. It’s a good deal!
