What’s on the Menu: Chronic Tacos | Sponsored by Camping World

FEATURE — This week’s “What’s on the Menu” spotlights one of St. George’s newest Mexican food establishments: Chronic Tacos Mexican Grill.

St. George franchise owner Ashley Rhoda says business has been steady since the store’s recent opening on Riverside Drive. It’s only the second Chronic Tacos to open in Utah, the other being in Salt Lake City.

Join Sheldon and Cassie as they taste some tantalizing tacos in Episode 37 of “What’s on the Menu” in player above.

The California-based chain was originally founded in 2002 in Newport Beach.

“I love Chronic Tacos,” Rhoda said. “I was originally introduced to it in Long Beach, California. That’s where my mom is from, and it was one of her favorite places to eat. So, it’s got some sentimental value to me also. That’s why I opened it here.”

The menu at Chronic Tacos is fairly simple: customers choose their base from among several options, then pick their protein. In addition to popular standbys like beef, pork and chicken and shrimp, a nonmeat substitute called Beyond Beef is also available for those who prefer to go vegetarian or vegan.

“You can pick any of the meats that we have and put them in there,” Rhoda said, “And then we let you customize it and build it to your individuality and pick all of your toppings.”

Many of the restaurant’s menu items also have gluten-free options.

“One of our most popular items is going to be probably the California burrito, which comes with fries on it, and people really dig that here,” Rhoda said, adding that the store also serves breakfast burritos any time of the day, with chorizo and bacon being popular choices.

The store has ongoing specials the first three days of each week, Rhoda said. Customers can get $1 off all burritos on “Monday Madness.” There is a $1 discount on tacos on “Taco Tuesdays” and $1 off unwrapped bowls and salads on Wednesdays.
