El Toro Bravo at 745 W 19th St # G  Costa Mesa, CA 92627.

A favorite Mexican take out place of mine. They also have a grocery store in the same parking lot. The chips and tortillas are the best I have ever had. Usually there is a line out the door. Their family style, taco take out meals are affordable…carnitas, carne asada, pollo or get some muy authentico carne!

Mexican Pizza

Posted: 07/17/2012 by goodie in Food

This is not your typical American Mexican pizza you get at Taco Bell or Pizza Hut. This is truly the best Mexican Pizza in SoCal and something you probably could have never dreamed of, let alone tasted. The pizza originates in Oaxaca Mexico and includes a 1.5 foot hand made corn tortilla, topped with black beans, Oaxacan string cheese, cabbage, lettuce, avocado, tomato, chorizo, al pastor and carne asada. All this is hand made by the owner Gulliermanina, who is an awesome person and a great chef.

DivBar Ribs

We went to the DivBar on Saturday night and it did not disappoint. The short ribs were not short at all….more like a foot long and the meat was smoked to perfection. The restaurant has a cool atmosphere and lots of old Newport Beach memorabilia up on the walls. I will be back for sure.

A full order comes with two of these suckers plus choice of two sides

Have you seen it? Newport Beach has a new DivBar, although its not what your thinking and yes that is how they spell it. The DivBar Smokehouse BBQ restaurant opened yesterday and I’m eager to taste the food. It is next to Joe’s Crab Shack on PCH and is in the same building as the old Dennis Rodman restaurant. The DivBar is a venture undertaken by the same owner of 3-Thirty-3 Waterfront restaurant. The DivBar has several slips out front and will offer Duffy service as well as home delivery.

Cool sign and they have late night delivery
