Pacific Cod

Omg the spiciness of the taco sauce and the flakiness of the fish mixed with the crisp cabbage makes for a great taco. Pair it with a great New beer on tap to finish the meal perfectly.

Steak Chimichurri

The Wagyu Steak Chimichurri is one of the best Premium Tacos that I have ever had. It is slightly better than Gaucho Grill's steak Chimichurri.

Jamaican Jerk Chicken

I'm addicted to the Jamaican jerk chicken tacos. They're the perfect combo of sweet, savory and spicy that I can't help but getting 4+ every time I come!

The Standard Burrito

It was a pretty darn good burrito, I was very satisfied. The way its served made it look appetizing. I added a little sour cream and that made it even better. I was full on half the burrito, the portions inside were great!! Definitely a place to stop by and check out. Next time I wanna try the quesadilla!!

This taco is one of my favorites. Flavorful meat, soft tortilla & the veggies add a kick. I love taco asylum and have been eating here for over 6 years. Unique tacos, good beer, and a relaxing environment.

Bacon PB&J

Hands down THE best taco I've had. At first when you read it it sounds weird, but it's a must try because you will literally fall in love with how well the flavors go together!!

Buffalo Fried Chicken

This is delicious! Perfect flavor. And I loved how the celery was cut, so it was super easy to eat in a taco. Definitely would order this one again.

Lemongrass Shrimp

Some of the best tacos I've had in Costa Mesa. The staff is amazing and friendly. You can catch them at the local brewery so if feels like a real community. They also have some of the best beers on tap.

Nachos Borrachos

I thought it was interesting to add pickled onions and cucumbers to nachos, but the outcome was amazing. I will have to try this again.

Nachos Borrachos

This nacho dish is one of the best around, if not the best! Love they picked onions, tasty guacamole, and I personally add short rib. Yum!

Steak Chimichurri

My husband and I were at the South Coast Plaza and trying to decide where to go for lunch. My husband said he wanted to sit at a bar, drink a beer and eat a taco. I typed taco into Yelp and Taco Asylum came up. We walked in, sat at the bar, he got a beer from the great beer list and we ordered some food. We got the nachos, 2 steak chimichurri tacos and 2 short rib tacos. Wow! Not only did you guys meet the request but you exceeded our expectations! The steak in the taco was so delicious. You could taste the quality of the meat and it was cooked to perfection. All the flavors were delicious and the portions were generous. We loved the steak chimichurri tacos so much that my husband ordered a third and that time added bacon. Would absolutely recommend and will definitely return!

Bacon PB&J

WOW!!!! this was an amazing taco. sounded interesting on the menu, but the taste exceeded my expectation. Can't wait to return and try more taco's. My new favorite place to eat!!!!!!!

I used to live in Costa Mesa and always got the mushroom taco even though I'm definitely a meat eater. If you're a mushroom fanatic like me you have to get try these! The crunchy chickpeas on top are so good you'll just want extra to eat on the side. Now that I live in LA I don't get to eat here as much, but when I do stop in town I always swing by for this taco!

Bacon PB&J

My husband and I bring our toddlers here every week! The patio is perfect for an IPA and amazing tacos. The chimichuri sauce is addictive. Unique tacos with bold flavors. I can't say no to the PB&J Taco! Our kids love the bean and cheese burrito and guac. The food is fresh, and the ambiance can't be beat.

Buffalo Fried Chicken

My wife and I swear by taco asylum. They have unique tacos, that have become staples of our order. The buffalo chicken taco sounds like it should be bad, but it's incredible! Bacon PB&J? Should be weird, but holy crap. It's great. Beer selection is always tops as well.

Bacon PB&J

OMG! OMG! OMG! There are defining moments in a person's life that will stick with them forever. The first time you kiss someone, your first car, the first time someone tells you "I love you", and the first time you go to freaking Taco Asylum and have the Bacon PB&J taco. Are you kidding me? This thing is like Heaven wrapped in a flour tortilla! But before I wax too poetic about this thing, let me tell you about the place. It started out as an innocent walk by. It was later in the evening, and they weren't open. But the menu was out front. My girlfriend and I looked at the menu and were like, "Wait … what? Really? Are you kidding?" That's when we knew we had to come back ASAP and get some tacos. The place has a really cool, laid back vibe to it. But don't let the unassuming facade lull you into a sense of low expectation; there are some SERIOUS flavors coming out of that kitchen. I will say this as well, the people that work there (servers, bar tenders, cooks) are very cool and friendly. We were pretty much blown away by the attentiveness and helpfulness. Not over-bearing, mind you, but always there checking in and making sure everything is awesome. Which it was. Completely awesome. My first experience there was so good, I didn't want to write a review right away … I mean, any place can put up a good front one time. I'm all about consistency. I've been back 3 times now, and every single time has been just as good as the first. So now I'm documenting my experience for posterity. The food is completely and utterly amazing! We've talked about the Bacon PB&J taco (get it with extra bacon, because … well, bacon), I mean, it will change your entire belief system! I've had the Steak Chimichurri, the Bah Mi, the Short Rib, the Fire Pig, and the Lemongrass Shrimp. So many amazing flavors, it was a little overwhelming, but damn if I don't want to have my checks direct deposited to this place. It's THAT good. Plus, they have a great selection of craft beers that compliment the tacos perfectly. It's a small place, but man, they pack some big flavors. This is a must-visit place before you die, or at least before the end of the week. Bottom line? Everything … and I mean EVERYTHING on the menu is a home run. This place has moved into my extremely selective Top 5 places of all time. I may be there so much that they might mistake me for an employee … or take out a restraining order. As long as I get the tacos, I really don't care.
