Two words: Freakin' amazing. After rattling off a bunch of different places to go get lunch, my cousin and I decided on Chronic Taco because I've heard really good things from friends and this new location recently opened in HB. It's nestled/hidden right between Corner Bakery and Pei Wei and has places to eat inside or an outside patio. While we were standing in line waiting to order the smell was so intoxicating...or maybe we were just really hungry. At first I was going to get a breakfast burrito which they serve all day but then I saw the carne asada meat and I pretty much knew I had to try it. So I ordered the carne asada burrito with spanish rice, refried beans, cheese, hot salsa and sour cream. It was so delicious. My cousin ordered carne asada tacos, which she really loved too. They're having a deal that if you buy one of the large collector's cups, refills are just 99cents all summer long. Pretty cool. The workers there are really nice and very helpful, went out of their way to make sure we had a really awesome experience. The prices are pretty decent for the amount and deliciousness of the food. It's definitely way better than Chipotle, by a long shot & I'll definitely be back for more.

This was my first time I visited a chronic taco... and today was the first day they opened too. The carne asada tacos are so awesome. I'm usually a very picky eater so I was surprised at how good the tacos were and how fresh the salsa is (and I hate tomatoes)! Now I'm a fan! Thank you CT for opening here. Now I can mix up my food selections!
