    Tastey, quick, not expensive, small, crowded, very busy, worth it!

    Their breakfast sandwich is so good here! They'll happily upgrade you: i.e. add hashbrowns into it.

    Breakfast burrito for the win

    The best breakfast burrito I have found in the area. Get it with bacon and sausage for good variety. Salsa on the side is ok but not great, use hot sauce instead. For a drink get the Mexican mocha.

    AWESOME spot for breakfast. Parking might be an issue but their Mexican Mocha is just phenomenal. So sweet and filled with caffeine. And it goes without saying, their breakfast items are all delicious

    Came here twice in less than a week and got the breakfast tacos and huevos rancheros. Both filled me up well into the afternoon! Great value.

    Daniel Gallen · August 12, 2014

    Huevos rancheros. This is a great breakfast dish. A little spicy but just right.

    This Costa Mesa eatery draws crowds mostly for its breakfast burritos, massive bricks too heavy on the eggs and too light on the sharp Cheddar, and crunchy, greasy hash browns but still damn good. Read more

    Pro tip: If the place is super busy, don't sit there for 30 minutes doing a crossword puzzle.

    Breakfast burrito - no egg + avocado

    Such a small place, not enough seats, people sit & read magazines while others are waiting for seats. This is why I don't come here too often.

    Mexican mocha is the beeeessstttt!!!

    Foods good but the lady at the front counter might of worked in prison or at least she talks to customers that way.

    Frigging awesome breakfast burrito and great coffee. Two people for 21$. Bam!

    Honestly the Early Riser is one of the best restaurant breakfast sandwiches I've ever had. Crispy bacon, fried egg and cheese perfection on a toasted piece of bread. Delicious.

    Noisy. Take it to go!

    Awesome place for a Mexican breakfast. My recommendation: 1) Mexican Mocha 2) Breakfast burrito 3) Huevos Rancheros MUY MUY YUM!

    Rooster serves some of the best brewed coffee in Orange County. No frills, just a good cup to start your morning.

    Do not get the huevo ranchero.

    The breakfast burrito w/sausage & add avocado is awesome! And the salsa is some of the best I've ever had! 

    Come and get a breakfast burrito (:

    Aren't Texas things supposed to be big? The Texas breakfast (2 eggs, sausage or bacon and a slice of toast) was SUPER TINY. Left hungry and it was too busy to order more food. Not worth the wait/$.

  • Christina

    It's not on the menu but they can make you egg whites!

    Rooster PM Review: AWESOME!! No Corkage! Ask for Josh, give him a glass of your wine, and enjoy the great food and vibe.

    Try the texas toast

    Their specials are usually really good value for the money.

    Amazing chicken tortilla soup! If you're lucky enough to be there when they have it, get it!

    Jake Eyerman · August 10, 2012
  • Marian P.

    Hearty Scramble. My suggestion, get the two egg scramble instead, if you're thinking of getting this plate. It's the same price, but ask for scrambled eggs and you get a plus of bacon or sausages.

    Marian Pascual · June 14, 2012
  • Martis D.

    I love the breakfast burrito $5.25 what a deal.

    Martis D · June 4, 2012

    Great food - the Mushroom 3 way is a fav. Also, No corkage (make sure to offer a taste to the wait staff)!

    Marcy Ott · May 30, 2012

    Love this place, like to try new things and as I was headed to gypsy den I spotted this gem, all in all to paraphrase AWSOME ... Don't believe me, next you stop by try the chicken quesadilla ...

    Was not impressed with breakfast ...especially the hashbrowns... bland.

    Jessica Yang · January 22, 2012

    Seriously....the best breakfast tacos in town.

    Really? $0.50 for coffee refill? Never before. This place is changing. Ugh!
