Shrimp Cocktail

This generous portion size is so amazingly chock full of delicious shrimp, in a broth that is so fresh, refreshing and perfectly flavorful without being too spicy! This is one of my favorite dishes to get here, and we love everything we've gotten here so far! My family thinks their beans are hands down the best out of every local mexican restaurant, and I agree!

3 Taquitos Plate

Great food! We also ordered the tacos special (we went Friday) and the customer service and food was great. Been a customer since I went to CSULB and I'm glad to see the same level of service during this crisis :) keep up the good work!

3 Taquitos Plate

Had the nachos with Al Pastor. Once of the best places around that makes the best Al Pastor. Nachos were hot, fresh and great. Good amount for the price and the food is always prepared to order.

These flautas are so delicious. If you like taquitos, meet its sophisticated older brother. The flautas are crispy and so flavorful. I love this place and cant wait to go back on my next California trip!

Shrimp or Fish Taco

I am a bit of a shrimp taco snob and I am very particular on where I got to eat these... Great Mex is one of these places. They are the perfect size with just the right amount of flavor!! And the sauce... how could you forget about the sauce?!?! If you are a shrimp taco fan than this is the spot that you have been waiting your whole life for!

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.

I ordered the Chicken Fajitas for the first time and was surprised at how delicious it was. The chicken was tender, moist and perfectly seasoned. Most places serve dry and tasteless chicken and sadly I guess I'm used to it. The beans and rice were perfect as usual. Restaurant guacamole never tastes good to me so I rarely eat it, but today I finished it all! The grilled onions and bell peppers were perfect as well. My go-to's are the shrimp bowl, Beef hard shell tacos, and fish ceviche, but I will be adding their fajitas to the rotation. Lastly, I know they have to pre-pack the to go salsa due to regulations but I hope they always do this. It's easier and cleaner for all.

Soft or Crispy Taco- choose one

Crispy Shredded Beef Taco. The taco that started my love for Great Mex. Have been going for the past 7 years since first having this taco and have loved every visit, especially when Veronique is in there. Need to try this and the shrimp taco along with their cheap pitchers of draft beer on Taco Tuesday or Taco Friday. TACOS!

California Burrito

The California Burrito is amazing. I never would have picked a burrito with fries, but one night, I accidentally grabbed my husbands burrito instead of my own. It was amazing. I've been ordering it ever since!

My friends and I love Great Mex! Every item we've had is delicious, and we came every Tuesday and Friday for tacos and margs during the school year. Great Mex is our favorite place!

Soft Taco

Great Mex is one of the biggest things I miss about living in Costa Mesa. We went there every Friday night for tacos y cerveza! Best chips and salsa as well. Best part of my week. Whenever I am in the area, I always make a stop at Great Mex for my fix!

Bean Burrito

We LOVE to order the burritos filled with beans and rice. You it's *unbelievable* how flavorful they are - and so filling. My boyfriend is 6'6 and not scrawny, and these fill *him* up. The salsa is amazing too. We've gone back several times for it, we crave it, and I WISH I knew how to make this at home for the times when we can't make it to the restaurant. (We don't live near enough to one - maybe a Great Mex Grill cookbook could be on its way?!!) I don't care who you are or what you normally eat. We're plant based and vegan, but *anyone* will love these. (We haven't always been - we know how to throw. down.) Trust me, they're AMAZING. Try them!

Love their Friday night tacos! Food I like and my kids like. My daughter likes their rice and beans with a side of tortillas for make your own tacos. The California burrito is also tasty. Haven't had anything bad here!

California Burrito

So tasty! I've been coming for years, and while I also love the Taco Tuesday special and their Torta Sandwich, I can't get enough of the California Burrito. This burritos is filled with good Carne Asada, fries, guacamole and sour cream. The portion is great and I'm constantly craving it. Great deal without trying to add any bells and whistles.

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. :)
