REVIEW: Chronic Tacos, Newport Beach
Potato tacos. Get hot salsa with them. $1.09 each. See if they'll add cheese for you before they fry them.
Shrimp tacos. Get cabbage, sour cream and hot salsa, guacamole if you want, and ask them to deep-fry the shrimp. Ignore the $3.49 price tag -- it is so big it might as well be a burrito.
Carne asada burrito. Get it stuffed full and you'll have enough for three days for $5.
Noplace to sit (in the Newport Beach one). In Huntington Beach you can sit and enjoy the band and surf sticker decor if you like... or you can be ghetto and hunch over your food in your car. There are a dozen or so branches, all (I think) in OC.
No, it's not "real" Mexican food. La Huasteca has nothing to fear. But seriously, go get the potato tacos. Now.

forgot all about this place.
A year ago, 4th of July Weekend, we ended up there on our way down to Rosarito...just pulled off the road to get gas, realized we were hungry and need to coat our bellies before the rot-gut margaritas made their way to our bellies...walked in to a Subway-left...it smelled sooo bad and no AC.
Saw a big banner for a Grand Opening of Chronic Tacos (silly us, we had no clue about "chronic" since our drug of choice requires a glass, cork, or a sugar cube) headed over and it was AWESOME!!! Huge burritos, grea guac and salsa and the people were super friendly.
Only ate 1/2 the burrito...it traveled well, tasted great at 3am after too much beer/margaritas...always think I'll get to another sometime but I always head south to kayak at 5am so no place is open.
Oh, the tortillas were perfect, even at 3am, after sitting in a truck in July in Rosarita.
