Mexican Food In Huntington Beach

Southern California’s close proximity to Mexico has blessed the region with exceptional authentic Mexican cuisine, ranging from traditional hearty comfort food to modern Baja-inspired bites. Wrap your hands around another local Mexican staple—the burrito—at joints like Fiesta Grill, a prized hole-in-the-wall preparing savory wet burritos, and Secret Spot, a casual not-so-secret eatery sending out daydream-worthy breakfast burritos. If you've never tried a chile Relleno—a poblano pepper stuffed with cheese, dipped in batter, and fried with love—we highly suggest you try one here in Huntington Beach. Visiting during the week? Get your Mexican fix courtesy of one of many Taco Tuesday deals, like $2 tacos at Sancho's Tacos or $5 guacamole and margaritas at Ola Mexican Kitchen. Wherever you go, it'll be delicioso.
