This was our 1st time trying Chronic Tacos. We ordered 2 kids burritos, 2 potato tacos and 1 burrito. My husband was so impressed that he wants to drive to Hesperia again. And we live in La Verne.

The kids were happy with their meal and my tacos were good.

Whomever gave less than 5 stars-- shame on you!! I am such a stickler when it comes to food, because I cook so much, but this place just opened up here in the HD and the options, from Gluten Free to Vegetarian.. I'm one happy camper!

First off the mini store is off the hook! They have EVERYTHING!!! And a microwave to heat up your own food there..

Chronic is all the way to the far right as you walk in, open 24/7 from what I heard and the girls there are super friendly and sweet!! The flavor ... is on point and the potato tacos, Mmmmm!! With fajita topping and all extra veggie, packed with flavor.. I'll be back for sure and I hope they receive tons of business here!

I ordered three times because I loved the tacos... the potato tacos. I guess three times is too many. I ordered off Door Dash, and 30 minutes into my order I get a "Order Canceled". No reason why. Okay go to re-order, not that big of a.... wait what? They actually removed the item before cancelling my order. WOW. How terribly lazy... and maybe even something illegal, but not worth my times in small claims just to make you look bad. No wonder you're going out of business...
