Breakfast Sandwich

I've been coming here for the past 5+ years with my dad and grandparents and we always get the exact same thing, the breakfast burrito. I didn't see it on the list, so I selected the sandwich, but by far my favorite thing on the menu is their breakfast burrito. The way all the ingredients are blended together is such a wonderful combo that I've never seen anywhere else. Also, sometimes when I'm not in a Mexican food feeling, I get the great Mex combo I think. It comes with a cheeseburger, fries, and drink for I think 5 or 6 bucks! It was a great price for a great and unexpected food item. :)

These are the most delicious tacos ever! They're perfect little street tacos and taste like home. My favorite one are the carnitas but I love them all!

Shrimp or Fish Taco

I have fallen in love with the shrimp tacos! The shrimp is grilled to perfection. The slaw topping is fresh and complements the crunch of the grilled shrimp. But for me, the sauce makes it all come together. I think I could just drink the sauce it's that good. I add a little squeeze of lime and then I enter taste bud heaven. Well done Great Mex Grill!

Shrimp Burrito

We discovered GM on one of our many trips to Balboa. The shrimp burrito is our goto. The shrimp is perfectly cooked but its the sauce that makes it. We make the 45 minute drive just to get one.

My family loves Great Mex! Great food with generous portions allows us to soak up the flavors while feeding the whole family! I usually go for the Enchiladas, but every thing I've tried down to the salsas are good.

Shrimp or Fish Taco

One of the best tacos I have ever had. The baja sauce and shrimps are so good. Go on Taco Tuesday and Taco Friday and load up with every taco there is. Make sure you get the crispy shredded beef too. Enjoy with cheap beer and the best company (servers and Billy Joe Armstrong). Shoutout to Veronique!

Shrimp Quesadillas

I've had a lot of dishes at a lot of Mexican places. But if I'm craving shrimp I go here. The shrimp quesadillas are amazing. I've never tasted anything like it. The shrimp burritos are also ridiculous. So delicious, my mouth is watering just writing this review. Consist great quality thank you Great Mex bc the Super mex in our neighborhood puts all Super Mex to shame worst food ever embarrassing to their chain. That's how I ended up at your restaurant and have been a regular customer for 3 years now.

Shrimp or Fish Taco

We ordered from here for Cinco de Mayo and I will definitely be ordering again. The soft Shrimp Tacos were to die for! Everything was so fresh and the cabbage and sauce made the taco so juicy. Portions were filling and rice and beans were on point. I highly recommend! My only negative was that we ordered for an office and all the tacos were just packed into one container. No bueno. No one wants people touching all over their food (especially during a pandemic) and trying to figure out who ordered a steak or chicken taco. Other than that, it was delicious.

We had cheese enchilada plate, chile relleno plate and crispy chicken taco. All were excellent in our opinion. We will definitely go back. Rice and refried beans are really good as well.

Carne Asada Steak or Carnitas Pork

Friday is our special night to eat out but since the Corona virus, we can't but wanted to support this local business so we ordered food to pick up! Carne Asada Steak plate, ceviche and a fish taco with rice and beans. It was so delicious! I am a connoisseur of ceviche and try to find the best and this was the best! It was the right balance of flavors and plenty of cilantro. We look forward to ordering again soon on a Friday (or Tuesday) night! Thank you for staying open and working hard during this challenging time.

El Mexicano Omelette

I love Mexican food so why not eat them for breakfast too? I had no complaints, the sides were just as good as the omelette. I recommend asking for extra cheese but that is just me. Thanks for a great breakfast great mex!

The slim burrito is my favorite all around breakfast meal! I live so close to the Costa Mesa location on Newport Blvd and I love to quick grab and go this delicious burrito before work! The amazing thing about GREAT MEX is that they are fast at delivering, always clean, have an amazing salsa bar, and their food is top noch quality in taste! (OH!

Fajita Combinado

Great combination chicken, beef, and shrimp. Great balance of flavor. I had to get a few extra tortillas as it was so good. The chips and homemade salsa really made the whole meal scrumptious. Thank you.

Love this! Tough to find a decent ceviche tostada and this one is worthy. Generous potion of fish & shrimp ( I order mixed) and sliced avocado make this my go - to. Yummy!
