Ham and cheese omelettes are the best. Comes with homefries which are seasoned to perfection. I ask for the veggies in the homefries to be cooked, well done (never a problem).. Add some of their hot salsa, and it's on!
Delicious!!will definitely be coming back:)
Beautiful california carni,asada grench fry burrito. Guackamoliand sour cream make it smooth and rich. The flour tortilla is stuffed as it wraps the quality i ingrediants. It could be a share amoung a date as it is plentyfull, bit i enjoyed the entirty.
These are, by far, the best shrimp tacos for the price. Plenty of shrimp and great flavor. Our go to spot for amazing, inexpensive Mexican food.
The cheese enchiladas at Great Mex are my favorite food ever! I've been in love with them for years ♡
After going to the beach early in the morning. A hot breakfast sandwich with a side of hash browns always hits the spot!! Been going here for years. I would write a review for everything on the menu because it's so good, but the breakfast sandwich is my favorite!! Great mex is a must try if you are down on the peninsula.
This burrito has such an incredible mix of flavors that is sure to please someone who is hesitant to try a burrito.
Their crispy tacos are bomb!
My staff and I from CSULB always come here. I have been in love with this place for years and always stop in for basically anything on the menu. Well, I stopped by there last night. Man if you have not been there you are missing out. The interior is clean & has a good vibe with a modern theme. Seating is roomy & there is an outdoor area. The chips are good and the salsa is great! Homemade salsa definitely. The meat in tacos is flavored perfectly & super tender. The tortilla soup has way too much chicken as this can be a meal in its self ! The soup has potatoes, carrots, tons of good chicken, Monterey Jack cheese and the broth is excellent with a hint of cumin. The Mexican rice is cooked & flavored perfectly. Rice is fluffy & perfectly cooked, just enough tomatoe sauce and the perfect amount of cumin & caldo de pollo. Good texture, pork taste good and good balance of masa vs meat. I had the tomatillo sauce, I know my Mexican food and this place is legit! I will definitely be back to try many other items on the menu, especially the shrimp & ceviche cocktail. Go Lakers!
Excellent food. The chimis had a nice crisp to them and the chicken was exceptional. The space is small but the food makes up for it! Their menu is pretty large which allows for ample choices!
Their tortas are really tasty, it was made quick, nice and hot. The side of fries really add on to the dish and brings it all together. I really recommend trying their torta on your next visit.
I first had a California burrito in San Diego and then came to this place in Long Beach and it was so much better! I'm coming back to visit next week and can not wait to stop here again !
Super delicious grilled fish tacos.! Good size portions. This is my new favorite place to eat.
Soooo good. The people are awesome that work there and the food is really good. The atmosphere is local beach hangout!
I always come in for soft ground beef tacos here bc they're one of the only places that do flour tortillas for tacos!! I love their food. I've also had tamales and enchiladas from there; just as delicious. Busy sometimes but the employees are always friendly.
Whenever I come home to visit Costa Mesa or Newport Beach, this is the *only* food I make sure I get every time. I've shown every person I bring to this area how good these breakfast burritos are, and I've never been disappointed.
Great Mex Grill is my favorite place to get crunchy tacos, my personal favorite - chicken. By far the best Mexican restaurant in OC for Taco Tuesday.
I love great mex because the staff is always welcoming. Its always clean. The salsa bar is my favorite one in town!!! Not to expensive.. and most of all EXTREMELY TASTY!!!
The California Burrito is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I had one and was NOT disappointed. The ingredients were fresh and everything was cooked perfectly. I can't wait to come back for another this week!
Great flavor & a kick to it. Must order every time we eat there! All the food is good with great quick service! Best value for the money!!
Super good and filling never had a bad one
The Long Beach Great Mex Grill is my favorite of Mexican eateries to eat at. The flavor of the food at this location is consistent and that is what keeps me returning to this location and wanting to tell all my friends how good the food is. My husband works at the VA hospital in Long Beach and I have to blame him for this new found craving because he introduced me to Great Mex.. Thumbs up👍 all the way..
I live 500 feet from great mex on newport Blvd and Wilson's and order this nearly everyday for breakfast. Always amazing, and quick with a very friendly staff!
Best burrito in all of south county!
The Fajita Burrito was delicious. I appreciate large portions and this burrito is spot on.
Can't go wrong with any of their burritos! I've tried a variety of things from here, but the burritos are always my favorite! I always get either the fajita burrito or the crane asada burrito and it never disappoints. Good portion and great price!
It was so good! Asking for an add on of beans inside the burrito makes it extra delicious. It's definitely a guilty pleasure of mine- especially since I try not to eat red meat often!
The beans are the best I've ever had. I can eat the Great Mex bean burrito every single day and not get tired of it. The pico de gallo makes it absolutely delightful!

I had the Pollo tacos and they were delicious. Soft moist premium chicken, seasoned to perfection... I threw in some chips and helped myself to the salsa bar. Some carrots, pepper, and tons of salsa later, I am a VERY happy camper. Thank you Great Mex!
Tried Great Mex on a friends suggestion and it did not disappoint! We've already been here 3 times and have ordered take-out from the Newport location twice. From bean and cheese burritos (my number 1) to taco Tuesday tacos to carne Asada fries, everything has been tasty! The food is great, the service is great, and this has become our go-to for Mexican food!
We work next door and always order the chicken soup. Its the best always done within 5-10 mins.
Super delicious grilled fish taco! Good size portions. Friendly staff. I love mexican food, this is my new favorite place to eat.
I had not been to Great Mex in some time, and we decided to drop by for something different. Everybody enjoyed the food, mostly burritos. The mahi I had was absolutely fabulous.
Everything I have ever had at this location has been wonderful. The service is with a smile and the people call the locals by name. They even know what they like! The ambience is ... well ... It's a small hole in the wall steps from the beach ... My kinda place
I've gone here a couple times for their Taco Tuesdays. Now, let me just say, I'm EXTREMELY picky when it comes to Mexican food and more specifically tacos. Their crispy tacos are the best and I would also highly recommend the soft tacos. Get a few plus their $1.50 beer and you are good to go!
Mushroom taco is the best, particularly on taco Tuesday. Also love the crispy tacos and salsa hits the spot.
My favorite item on the menu (and I've tried a lot of them)! Perfectly portioned, super healthy and overall just bomb.com. It may be weird but I get this with shrimp added to it. Their shrimp is perfectly seasoned and always worth it! They're generous with their portion sizes. Friendly service, delicious food (which you can see cooked in front of you) and an amazing salsa bar. There's a reason they're always so busy! This is a delicious choice.
Great mex has the best crispy tacos! We love the shredded beef in them the most. We live down the street and love riding our bikes here to get an order of them to go and a churro on the side. Their salsa Verde is delicious and they have a great salsa bar!
