Chronic Tacos, Long Beach

Chronic Tacos is a fairly new company, with many locations around So Cal. Their original one is in Newport Beach. The one we went to in Long Beach is on Bellflower and Stearns in the same plaza as Rite Aid, Trader Joe's, and Target.

The place has a fun and casual atmosphere with extreme sports videos playing on the tv. It's a pretty popular place and it was fairly busy when we went there at night. Ordering your food is kind of like the Subway style where you watch them prepare it in front of your face and they ask what ingredients you want on your meal.

I ordered the shrimp burrito (beer battered). That cost about $7. I really liked it. I just wish it was bigger... of course. Everything in it was tasty and I didn't want it to end.

My girlfriend ordered the breaded fish tacos. I think that was good too. I forgot how it compared to Senor Baja's fish tacos though. I think it was up there. The fish tacos were a little pricey as well at about $3.50.

I wouldn't mind going to Chronic Tacos again even though it's a little expensive. My girlfriend and I noticed when we compared this place to the Hole Mole on PCH, this place has superior ingredients. I'm not totally dissing Hole Mole cuz I love that place for its great prices, but Chronic Tacos just seems fresher and a bit better tasting.

It looks like they're going to open up a Chronic Tacos in West Covina, over at "The Heights" near Azusa and Amar.

Found this blog while looking up reviews of Chronic, after spotting the "coming soon" banner on one the buildings over at The Heights. Nice work. Looking forward to reading new posts here from now on.

haha. I thought for a quick second you were looking for some chronic on the web. But damn. That's good news. The Heights is where Target and Home Depot are at right? Hope they open up soon.
