Here's pictures of the Taco Tuesday at the Beachfront Bar and Grill:

It's supposed to be $6 even for all-you-can-eat. Make sure they don't try to charge you more than that.

Okay, so I didn't get much on my first plate:

Thanks, I think I remember those mentioned at Chowhound.

El Ranchito in Newport Beach
Taco Tuesdays
$5 all you can eat tacos

ChristianZ said...

Thanks! I'm going to add this in to the list above.

LT said...

El Torito Grill, $1.50 tacos. I think it's only in the evenings and I've only seen them at the Main St. location in Irvine.

Anonymous said...

Rubios Fish Tacos...it used to be $1 fish tacos, but I believe they just bumped it up to $1.25. :)

Anonymous said...

Tortilla Flats is now $2.00 a taco...

ChristianZ said...

Thanks for the update.

Anonymous said...

All El Torito locations have dollar tacos from 4-10 in the cantina.

ChristianZ said...

Thanks for the info. I'm guessing you are from El Torito. I have written to the Real Mex Restaurant people about some stuff and have never received a response.

Diamond Dog said...

god the Tortilla Flats Tacos sure went up in price.....but I love them. great fried tacos, chips and salsa

Also The Fish House
7626 E Chapman Ave # B
Orange, CA 92869
(714) 970-7163

has great fish & shrimp taco tuesdays. Really good. I think $2.00

I think the Taco Tuesday posts should be featured at the top of the website or on the site as a permanent fixture that is constantly updated and that people add too. Maybe a section that not only has Tac Tuesdays, but lists all the ongoing specials of all Mexican restaurants in OC?

ChristianZ said...

This entry is already updated any time somebody leaves a comment about a new place and I then add their info in which I think is a better system than anybody being able to add in anything they want. You need a moderator to make sure correct info gets posted and that people aren't leaving ads for Viagra and stuff. But, you are right that I should probably add the link in to the Help Panel at the top of every page. Thanks for the Fish House info. I'll add that in shortly.

Fred's Mexican Cafe has a great Taco Tuesday with $2 Taco's and Big Beer and Margarita specials. They also do give aways - last night was a snow board.

ChristianZ said...

Thanks for the update on Fred's. I still have to do a proper review there sometime.

Anonymous said...

I believe cooks corner has a taco tuesday as well. I haven't tried it though

ChristianZ said...

Thanks for the comment. I don't think I've even heard of Cook's Corner but I'm going to look it up now.

ChristianZ said...

Oh, it's that biker bar out in the canyon area. Is that what you're referring to?

Diamond Dog said...

are the crisp frescas chicken tacos that you get on Taco Tuesday in fresh fried taco shells or do they use shells like del taco?

ChristianZ said...

Interestingly enough I'm just about to go to the Fresca's in Anaheim for lunch so maybe I can check on this for you.

Anonymous said...

Christian,
You can add Newport Brewing Co.
$1.50 tacos , chicken, beef or fish

Diamond Dog said...

so what were they like?

ChristianZ said...

I id make it to Fresca's for lunch. I asked what kind of tacos they have on Taco Tuesday and they said, "Crispy chicken tacos." It took a while for me to respond because I then went to Disneyland then to another Mexican restaurant.

Diamond Dog said...

but was it fresh fried or pre fried shells? I already knew they were crispy

ChristianZ said...

Thanks, Anonymous. Just added in your Newport Brewing Co. info.

ChristianZ said...

Diamond Dog, oops, it looks like I dropped the ball. When I read your original question I was pretty much running out the door to Fresca's. I'm guessing it's fresh fried but will try to find out for sure soon.

Scott said...

Triple Aces to Newport Brewing Co. Great staff and atmosphere. Tacos are amazing. Ten ********** I love this place.

ChristianZ said...

Thanks. I have just added that info in.

Hey Christian,

Tried Chronic Cantina tonight. Just as an FYI to all the old geezers (or those like myself who feel like old geeers). There should be a max age of 30 (and that may be too old). The service was friendly and the food was fine, but man oh man were my wife and I fish out of water for Taco Tuesday at 9p. The music was, ahem, loud and the crowd was, ahem, young. Great if you plan on cocktailing it with dinner I guess... :-)

ChristianZ said...

What location was this?

Jon Silber said...

Costa Mesa - Triangle Square.

Well, the whole Chronic chain does sort of cater to the 14 - 27 year old crowd.

The Don Jose's on the corner of Magnolia and Adams in Huntington Beach is the only one I linked to and I just called them and they confirmed that they do have Taco Tuesday.

ChristianZ said...

Thanks, Las Barcas!

King Smokey said...

This is a GREAT list but it would be even better if it got updated. Some of those places closed and a lot of the deals have changed.

ChristianZ said...

Yes, this is why it says, "If you know of any place that should be added please leave a comment or e-mail me. I will work legitimate information given back into the main entry. We try to keep the information up to date but can't make any guarantees."

I update what I can but also rely on readers to get me updated information I haven't been able to personally catch. Also, the restaurants themselves can make sure their info here stays up-to-date.

Thanks for being an eagle-eyed reader. Can you start by telling me which places you know of to be closed?
