Alejandro's Mexican Food

801 W. 19th St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627 | Costa Mesa | 949-631-2561

Location Description:

It's the sole Orange County outpost of a San Diego chain, one that capitalized on the Alberto's craze of the 1980s that left a slew of imitators from Otay Mesa to Anaheim featuring a similar design (the Alejandro's marquee keeps the dark yellow of its competitors, but uses a silhouette of Emiliano Zapata instead of a greaser caricature) and selling carne-asada fries, flying-saucer tostadas, the same watery red salsa and the California burrito, that glorious culinary immigrant of America's Finest City that finds French fries stuffed into the edible torpedo.
