Method of Preparation

  5. When you are done with the fish, remove it from the oil with a slotted spoon and place it on the paper towel-lined baking sheet. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining fish and batter.
  6. To serve the burrito, warm tortillas, add rice on the tortillas, top with the crispy fish, sour cream and green onions and other suggested serving ingredients. Roll into burritos.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy the dish.

Went to Chronic Tacos to participate in the Relay For Life Fundraiser. We hadn't been there for a LONG time--the food just wasn't anything special. But for a cancer fundraiser we decided to give it another try. Decided to use the app to order because, you know, Covid. Food was ready on time. Unfortunately, that's where the awesomeness ended.

We ordered 6 items and 4 of the 6 had something wrong with them. Never mind the chicken bone I found in my salad. I guess that tells you it's real chicken?‍

BETTERED SHRIMP TACOS had lettuce instead of cabbage. AL PASTOR TACOS had cabbage instead of lettuce, which I actually ended up preferring. CHRONIC FRIES were covered with lettuce, which made me mistake it for my salad. I did not order lettuce on my fries. CHRONIC CHICKEN SALAD had cabbage instead of lettuce.  CHICKEN BOWL-RITO was good. SURF AND TURF BURRITO was good.

So, I'm not sure if we'll be back. The lettuce vs cabbage issues would have easily been solved if we ordered in person.

Service: Normal not too friendly, but whatever. Atmosphere: Tiny. I don't think I would sit in there and eat. It's definitely a get in get out kind of place. Food Grilled Shrimp Burrito: Flour tortilla, with black brown rice, black beans, lettuce, spicy salsa, chipotle mayo, jalapeños. Pretty good! Rice is super dry though and almost ruined it. Grilled Fish Burrito: Flour tortilla, no rice less beans, extra lettuce, spicy salsa, pico de gallo, chipotle mayo, jalapeños. Even better than the last one since the rice was taken out. Fried Fish Burrito: made same way. Delicious Veggie Burrito: made same way, extra jalapeños add guacamole. Really good. Grilled Shrimp Salad: No rice, no beans, extra salsa, extra jalapeños Meh... It's not meant to be a salad. Veggie Bowl: made same way as burrito, extra lettuce, extra jalapeños, extra guacamole. Very good. I usually like rice, but it was dry and horrible. The beans were whatever. I could do without. Ask for their sauces like the chipotle mayo and they have a special sauce or something idk. I wish they had death sauce like Feebirds.
