Mexican

What's that you say? Tijuana-style carne asada tacos don't exist in the OC? Tio Flaco's buries that idea. Its carne asada is loaded with smoky hardwood flavors and, just like in TJ, the meat is put on the mesquite grill right when you place your order, so it always comes out hot and oozing with natural juices. Pre-made food is almost nonexistent at Tio Flaco's, since mostly everything is cooked fresh throughout the day, including the tortillas.
