A good taco to take out or eat in. Fresh ingredients are shown through a line for you to choose either with flour or corn tortillas. No dinning here but good snack. If you are a Mexican food fan - you'll get a good "Taco Kick"

Great little out of the way taco stand. Really fresh ingredients. You get to build your own taco or burrito. Very friendly service and cute porch to sit outside on and enjoy CDM without spending a fortune. Shrimp tacos my favourite

I am not sure if this is a local business of a chain but the prices and food is great. Quick service and very similar to Chipotle. They have seats to eat there and take out service. Love their carnitas.

I'm always in search of the best Taco and I was very pleasantly surprised when I went for a walk in the neighborhood. Love the name and enjoyed the Tacos several times.

This is a must for a quick bite, kind of a legacy around here. A few Chronic's in the area, but I visited this one.

Quick and tasty tacos and burritos made fresh to order. The carnitas were tender and tasty and the burritos were fat and filling.

Tasty tacos and related typical Mexican fast food. Open patio with smallish storefront right on PCH (with it's noisy traffic).

This is one of my favorite places to eat. If you havent been to a Cronic Tacos before go. Its like a subway for burritos and tacos on steroids. Prices are a little high but they need to be for the amount of condiments and food you get.

Good food, great fish taco's. The food is fresh and it has a nice patio to eat outside. Good place to run to for a real taco and a quick beer.
