This is a fun little eatery for lunch on a nice day. Its just across the street from the old Mission, and near lots of the. shops in Old town. The food is good with a huge variety, form Mexican dishes to Pastrami. I enjoyed teh salmon last time I was there and it was really good.

We stopped here on our way to visiting the mission and were pleasantly surprised. With only patio seating and to go's the food was excellent. We ordered chicken wings (served with choice of dressing, but no celery), sweet potato fries and chili. Everything was served better than expected. People around us ordered meals, and each meal could have served 2-3... More

Catch great drinks and amazing food to match on the main drag in San Juan Capistrano. Just off the train, or an easy drive. Great prices.

We live nearby and have tried most of the restaurants in SJC. Mission Grill is situated in a great location - right across the street from the mission and right in the center of the town.

Fast service. The turkey burger was"huge" and good. The wheat bread bun is one of the best I have ever had. The wife had a tostada salad which was ok. The location is perfect.

Prior to eating at the Mission Grill, the best carne asada burrito I'd ever had was at El Nopalito in Encinitas, CA. Well, in my humble opinion, Mission Grill tops theirs by just a slim margin. Why? I think it's a combination of a more flavorful steak coupled with adding just a touch of cilantro. Then, there's the fact that... More
