We came here because of a recommendation from a near-stranger, and what good advice! We've eaten at the Newport Beach location and also the Costa Mesa location. WOW. The restaurant is on the small side, so you may need to wait, especially for breakfast. The kitchen closes down for about 20 minutes between breakfast/lunch, so that may cause a bit of a wait. This time we had lunch, and the Tres Amigos (3 unique/different enchiladas) were on point, as the waiter suggested. He almost got giddy when I ordered them. Pork, chicken, beef, and one with mole that was incredible. Hubby got the Cuban Pork sandwich, and it was great. My brother-in-law had a taster set of rose wines--nice touch! Prices are quite reasonable for what you will get, and if you aren't famished, consider sharing. Portion size is very good.

I finally had my first fish taco made with mahi mahi. It was delish. My daughter had the shrimp tacos. We shared the cauliflower appetizer which was great too. It's not a huge place but we did get immediate seating. The tables were a bit small and the chairs weren't the most comfortable but I would definitely go back. The service was good. Food came quickly. It was a bit loud in there for a Thursday night but I will not complain. My daughter wanted me to throw that comment in. Enjoy Eat Chow! It was worth it! Service, food, and value were all right where you want it!

I had the mussels with frittes ( French fries ) on the side
The sauce that the mussels swim in is unbelievably delicious
I eat mussels whenever I find them on a menu. Eat Chows version beats even the Belgian or Dutch ones I've had

We were a group of five and were lucky to get the last empty table. The cheesy tator tots are wonderful. The fish tacos were good and I loved the black beans. The fish was cooked a little more than I'm used to, but was spiced very nicely. The fish of the day was also very cooked, but still tasty. Great place.

On our way from the airport and stopped for lunch. Great atmosphere and comfortable dining. We had the mussels frites and were not disappointed. Mussels were wonderful and the sauce tasty. Definitely will be back.
