“Chronic Tacos is thrilled to bring our signature flavors and passion for fresh Mexican cuisine to the vibrant community of Pasadena,” Michael Mohammed, Chronic Tacos CEO, said in a statement. “We can’t wait to introduce our mouthwatering tacos, burritos, and more to our new friends and neighbors. We invite everyone to join us on September 23rd for a memorable day of food and festivities!”

Chronic Tacos now has over 50 locations operating across the United States, Canada, and Japan. The restaurant chain prides itself on serving “the highest quality ingredients with bold flavor profiles made from authentic Mexican recipes,” the statement said. 

The menu includes traditional Mexican items including tacos, burritos, and bowl-ritos along with some non-traditional items such as California burrito and Chronic Fries.
