Nice staff and I like their carnitas better than some other local taco places. Right down the street so a good price for convenience

Very good cost to value. Generous portions. Expect to have leftovers, especially with the quesadilla.Not the best Mexican food in the world, but easily my top 10 favorite Mexican food places. I am really picky about my Mexican food so this in itself is an achievement.

Chronic tacos is one of the best taco shops I have ever experienced. If you love good Mexican food exactly the way you want it then this is where you want to come. You are literally standing there telling them what you want to have on your food so it always comes out perfectly. The staff at every location I've been to has always been in a good mood and happy to serve. I definitely recommend that if you've got a hankering for some Mexican food you should hit up chronic Tacos

Ate a taco and nachos from here… so good! Beyond meat was prepared surprisingly well and one of the employees named Julie was SO kind to me. The store was only two minutes late on my pickup order (the line for in person ordering was ridiculously long) and she apologized profusely for that tiny hiccup. Great and fresh food, super affordable

The minute I saw that they had potato tacos on the menu with various options to customize with toppings, the decision was made to order takeout for lunch. I've never been here before, but I think it's the closest and reasonably price taco place near me. Plus, the delivery fee on Uber Eats was $0.49 at the time.I ended up picking up 2 potato tacos with the works (guacamole, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream and baja sauce). The baja sauce ended up being a little overwhelming and the tomatoes tasted more like a pico de gallo, but overall, everything really hit the spot for me. The tacos were super crispy and although it was a mess to eat, I'm pretty sure I inhaled this in less than 5 minutes lol.I also got the California burrito with carnitas, black beans, guacamole, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa verde and sour cream. The tacos filled me up, but I did eat this for dinner. They really filled the burrito with meat and it was flavorful.I really do enjoy the option where you can customize your topping at no additional cost. I thought the portions were quite large and filling - they definitely don't seem to skimp! I'm interested in trying their chronic fries next time or the surf & turf burrito next.

I got food poisoning that landed me in the ER. Service was okay, but please be wary of the carne asada fries burrito. I really hope quality of food improves ??

Decent breakfast burrito, but extremely poorly run establishment. Store hours are supposed to be 10AM - 8:30PM every day. Called at 10:07AM, no answer. Message says "we are helping other customers". Call again at 10:19AM, no answer. Same message. Walk into the restaurant at 10:22AM expecting a line of customers, but there are none. Zero. Four staff including one older woman that appears to be a manager are still setting up, haven't even fired up the grill yet. After four minutes of waiting for them to get going, the cashier girl says she can take my payment while I wait. So I proceed to pay by card. While doing so, another girl who is making my burrito asks me what toppings I want. I walk over to see what they have, and she immediately tells me "oh you didn't finish paying". Why don't you let me finish paying then?! The cashier girl then rings me up and says the total is $6.45. I start to insert my card and the other girl tells her that's the wrong price. Apparently a discount had been applied. After removing the discount the new total is $9.85. Not a bad price in mid 2022 with inflation, but overall just a bad experience. If you are the owner of this establishment, please properly train your employees, or hire a manager that can!

The food is great and I enjoy everyone at the store...they are more than friendly and go out of their way to satisfy the customer except the older Hispanic woman at the register and sometimes makes the order. She talks (in Spanish) behind customers ears and ridicules them. I understand enough Spanish that she was talking about me and my order. I asked that she doesn't take my order any longer and I don't care for smart talk. I make my order and everything is fine until I get to the register...she charges me $2 extra for extra meet which I didn't order. I usually order a California burrito which comes out to $12 and some change, I am not willing to pay for something I didn't order, I am unwilling to pay close to $15 for a burrito, and I'm certainly unwilling to come here again as long as she's there. I left an email in their website a month ago and there were no response. I frequent Chronic Tacos bc it's convenient and fast. My kids like it too. But I don't need the insults! Adios!

I love a good taco Tuesday! I wasn't craving tacos, but I was craving Mexican food. Chronic tacos is where it's at! I actually had an issue with my order. For some reason the app put down my neighbors address and not my address. Chronic taco was able to help me get my address changed so my food we get delivered to my door. The chronic salad with shrimp was really refreshing! Their chips are just the right amount of crunch. The salsa was a little too hot for me, but I will know to get Pico de gallo next time.

I've been to other Chipotle restaurants and it seemed like they were on the decline. BUT... I visited here with my coworkers and what a difference. The food was fresh, tasty, and made to order. I prefer the sofritas bowl. Add guacamole and corn salsa and you have a dream. Burritos are plenty big, generous in portions. I've never had their tacos but they also look good.
