Temecula food: Chronic Tacos, get your fix

Temecula, Ca – Is it the middle of the afternoon and you’re seriously hungry? Well, you are in luck. Chronic Tacos is your fix. Located in the Tower Plaza center off Rancho California Rd in Temecula, Chronic Tacos offers a wide array of Mexican-American food. Picky eater? Chronic Tacos has everything from Burritos to breakfast and tacos to tamales. They even have a catering menu suited to serve 10, 25, or 50 person parties.

We were just cruising around without a plan when we happened upon this little gold nugget eatery. Being vegetarian, we are skeptical of restaurants. Will there be anything we can eat? Are they going to be irritated if we ask questions? As soon as we looked at the menu, I was happy. Not only are there a ton of different veggie options, they also have a potato taco for only $1.09! Plus, all of the staff members were friendly and knowledgeable about the food, and willing to answer anything we asked.

Our “picky eater” got a Potato Taco with only cheese and my husband and I each got a Veggie Taco. I asked, “What are you veggie options?” The cook (who ended up being one of the owners) said that I could have any of the rice, beans, salsa, and toppings as well, he would sauté up some fajita veggies if I wanted. Of course we both opted for the huge stack of sizzling red, orange and yellow peppers and onions. We asked about the rice. As most veg*ns know, most restaurants use chicken or beef stock to make their rice. Chronic Tacos uses water and spices to make their two kinds of rice, White Lime and Spanish.

Carnivores need not worry. If meat is your thing, Chronic Tacos has plenty of it. Take your pick from Carne Asada, Pollo Asada, Carnitas, Al Pastor (spicy pork), Breaded Fish (Tecate beer battered Mahi-Mahi), Grilled Fish, and Shrimp. Any of these options can be added to your burrito, tostada or taco. Or if you are in the mood for breakfast, try a chorizo, machaca, or gringo burrito (egg, potato and bacon). Just thirsty? Chronic Tacos offer fountain drinks, Rockstar, bottled water and beer by the bottle or glass.

The best part about Chronic Tacos is the price. Nothing on the menu is more than $7.50 (not including catering menu) with most prices falling between $3 and $6. In the near future, Chronic Tacos will be hosting live music in the evenings for your listening pleasure. So go have yourself some Chronic! Check them out online at, or call the Temecula restaurant at 951-491-0373. Temecula’s Chronic Tacos is located at 27523 Ynez Rd, Temecula, Ca 92591.
