Taco Mesa Restaurant Review

: You should not expect much in the d├ęcor department at Taco Mesa, but the healthy, flavorful and inexpensive Mexican food created by chef Ivan Calderon nonetheless brings out foodies in droves. Some come in the early morning hours for the eye-opening egg, potato and chorizo breakfast burritos, accompanied by a cup of fresh-squeezed juice from a mix of tropical fruits. For lunch and dinner, dig into unique tacos like blackened calamari or the steak and bacon alambre. The filling combos (tacos, taquitos and enchiladas) come with fluffy Mexican rice, hearty whole beans and homemade flour or non-GMO corn tortillas.
