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.

The employees here are always very friendly! That's the best and most notable thing about this Chronic Tacos location. No matter what I order, they're always happy to help and make sure they take care of everything I want with clarifications. The food is hot and fresh. If you order the grilled fish with any of the items, be prepared to wait a few minutes for them to cook it up fresh for you in the back, but they will let you know that there will be a small wait! It's worth it! The chips could be better, but all around fantastic, quick "American-Mexican" Chipotle-style food.

Nowadays, when you hear the word 'chronic,' you usually think about a certain illegal-except-for-medical-reasons 7-leaved plant and conjure up images of bongs, haze-filled rooms, and Snoop Dogg. As I continue to get older, however, I start wondering about chronic ailments instead (e.g. - that pain in my knees, my aching back, the shoulder soreness, etc.). Ouch... Chronic Tacos is neither an herbal remedy nor a pain I wish would go away. It's more of a grassroots taco shop that hearkens back to the time when Wahoos was just starting to really pick up steam and 'blow up.' Anyway, this particular store is way back in the hills of OC (across the street from Santiago Canyon College)...right in my backyard! The family and I stopped in since we noticed that it was new. Apparently they've been open for about 4 months but, since I usually don't drive by it, I didn't know. Now that I do, I'm glad that it's here. In essence, Chronic Tacos offers your basic SoCal taco shop items: burritos, enchiladas, tostada bowls, nachos, tacos, tortas, tamales, taquitos, quesadillas, and even breakfast items (chorizo and machaca burritos). I like that they offer healthier alternatives such as corn or wheat tortillas and grilled fish. If they had vegetarian (soy meat) alternatives, that would be even better...but it may be a while before that happens... I ordered a carnitas burrito on a wheat tortilla with white lime rice, black beans, cheese, cilantro, onion, and salsa verde. The wifey ordered a pollo asado taco and a grilled fish taco. My burrito was tasty, but I noticed a few minor problems. Some grains of rice and a few black beans in my burrito were 'al dente' and a bit chalky (undercooked). Also, my carnitas were a bit on the greasy side (but that's to be expected sometimes). Still, my burrito was pretty good and I'd definitely return here for more. I also noticed that the carne asada was a bit on the salty side (at least for my tastes). Check this place out if you're in the area. Maybe you'll see me there... Update (1/08): I tried one of their 'famous' breakfast burritos - the chirizo one. I thought the word 'chorizo' had two 'o's in it. Whatever. This hulking burrito tasted fine, but it had the consistency of raw ground meat. It was a little weird, but I ate it anyway. I think I'll try the machaca one next time...
