I think i stepped into a Gold Mine lol. Its hard enough to find a good taco joint in Orange County. I usually have to drive all the way to Santa Ana. We were in Newport a week ago and grabbed some tacos for the first time at Chronics. Since its called Chronic Tacos, Im gonna say this place is dope. I bought some Fish and Shrimp Tacos and they were slammin good. Owners do a great job at taking the time to prepare good tacos. These are more like an upper scale street tacos near the beach. Drinks are good here as well. And the food is inexpensive, Well depending on what you get, But prices are about moderate. Shrimps and fish are all grilled on a real grill.Fish is tastey and not so oily and greasy like some other places ive eaten at. All i gotta say, I cant wait to come back.

If you accidentally make it to your movie with 30 mins to spare and don't want to spend an arm and a leg at the concession stand.... Then stop and spend an arm and a leg here instead! Don't get me wrong food taste great, but $12 for the amount you get? I was mesmerized by the ad standing between me and the theater for fish and shrimp tacos. I thought it would indeed include fish and shrimp, it includes fish OR shrimp. So I ended up with both. They took. a while to make, which is ok... Because I like my seafood as fresh as possible. I also decided to make it a meal which includes rice(white or Spanish) and beans (refried, pinto or black), chips and salsa and a fountain drink. I had a huge issue with the presentation. They don't have a box or tray if you order a meal and plan on eating in the food court. Picture this.... I'm carrying an open faces box with my tacos, two containers with my beans and rice, a container of salsa, a bag of chips and an empty cup! Luckily I have a juggling background of cocktail server, but cmon... Seriously? How hard is it to put a meal in the correct packaging? Work on it people!!!!

Was hoping that the tacos were better, but not worth the $4 per taco. I'm staying at the Palms for a conference and needed a quick bite. Ordered the grilled fish and grilled shrimp tacos. The lady who took my order was great. Friendly, helpful and let me know when the food would be ready. I got the tacos Baja style (cabbage and sauce). The fish taco was okay (3/5) but retangular fish portions? At least it flaked like real fish. The shrimp taco was disappointing (2/5) as there was like 3-4 shrimp. The cabbage and sauce would make most things tasty, but wanted more seafood for the price. 2.5 Star. I might try it out one more time, but will try the Earl sandwich place first.

Outstanding! Great food! Great service! The grilled fish and grilled shrimp tacos were amazing! As were the the breakfast chorizo tacos! Customize it however you want. (Think Subway style) Fresh lime. Spicy jalapeños. Shredded cilantro. Great pico de gallo. Ghost pepper sauce that I'm going to have to buy some to take home. Best food I've had while in Vegas and the fact that it is served so fast is a bonus.
