Our Amazing Tasting - Favorites and New Flavors To Try...
 
Thank you to Jimboy's HB for the preview tasting. Everyone loves Jimboy's here and we visit the Anaheim location frequently but the new menu items are poppin' with flavor, all your favorites and can be customized!
 

 
What is this awesomeness we speak of... Jimboy's new Mash Up menu items and more!

Our all time favorite is their traditional all American taco but with all the foodie rage in us we always look forward to surprises, secret menu items and of course new eats to try!
 
This location had me smiling since it is so close to the beach. I am always looking for quick good food for before or after a beach day and this hits the spot at anytime... the view from the front window seating.. wow catch a sunset there!
 

 
Here are some of our favorites and highlights of the new Mash Up menu items. Don't forget, this is perfect for all tastes, customize them with as much or as little as you or your picky kiddo may want to eat. (I get it, I have one kiddo that eats it all and the other that is so picky)
 
Tahoe Nachos for the win! Load them up or keep it as simple as you want to. Tasty either way!
 

 
My personal new Mash Up favorite - I may have taken a few bites by the spoonful... don't judge me - this Loaded Queso is drinkable its that delish! I wanted everyone to try it and I have wanted to go back for more since we left. The fresh pico and guac with a dash of sour cream... Grab some chips and dive in!
 

 
Hamburger Taco is not new but new to us - My husband said it surprised him how much he liked it and would totally get it again. Great - were headed to Disney soon so he can grab one across from the parks at their Anaheim location!
 

 
 
Best of my two favorite worlds collide in the tasty Mash Up - TaquitO-M-G! Queso and taquitos.. yes please. Topped with my favorites! So filling.
 
 
Let's not forget the amazing bites Jimboy's offers for the whole family. Rice and Beans for the kiddos, a favorite of my daughters, street tacos and they are loaded up and of course the new brisket taco - wow that is a treat to the menu!

 
 
 Some History and New Beginnings...
 
Jimboy’s Tacos opened nearly 65 years ago as a simple food trailer on the shores of Lake Tahoe, CA. With sights set on serving the best tasting taco on the planet, founder Jim “Jimboy” Knudson created the Original Ground Beef Taco, which has not changed since it was first served in 1954 and remains the brand’s most popular menu item. The iconic taco, which Food Network star Guy Fieri has called a ‘guilty pleasure’ taco, is made fresh at each Jimboy’s Tacos location with seasoned ground beef, freshly shredded cheese, and lettuce encased in a crispy, stone-ground corn shell dusted with parmesan cheese.
 

 
"We're thrilled to be at the forefront of Jimboy's Tacos’ Southern California expansion. The Huntington Beach community has been so warm and welcoming to us and we are committed to being a good neighbor. It's a perfect fit, Jimboy's Tacos and the beach." said Southern California franchisees David Angulo and Lynette Romero.
 
Jimboy’s has also earned viral popularity and social media fame for its Taquito Burrito, a signature grilled burrito stuffed with three taquitos, which has received over 25 million views on social media to date and garnered worldwide attention.  The Taquito Burrito mash-up has led to the creation of a revolutionary “Craft Your Own Mash-Up” section of the Jimboy’s menu.    
 
“Our customers like to pick their own ingredients, mix and match, be creative and create their own iconic dishes,” said Robert Andersen, CEO of Jimboy’s Tacos.  “We strive to create an experience that provides our guests choices and the freedom to be original. We like to keep it simple and everyone leaves happy,” continued Andersen.
 
The Huntington Beach restaurant is located on the historic Pacific Coast Highway just steps away from the beach pier.  The restaurant features a vintage design that is anything but ordinary, while celebrating the spirit to be original. The vibrant vintage design elements, colorful mural wall, natural wood elements and metal design textures all combine to promise a unique experience and pay homage to the food trailer where Jimboy’s Tacos first began in Lake Tahoe in 1954. In addition, the location offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the sound of crashing waves in “Surf City, USA,” which can be seen from the open garage door style windows in the restaurant.  
 
“It is very exciting to introduce Huntington Beach and Orange County our fresh take on the vintage Jimboy’s brand,” said Andersen. “We are very fortunate to have outstanding franchise operators like David Angulo and Lynette Romero, who share our passion for making the world a happier place by serving our unique taco experience.  We continue to see significant growth of our brand from Southern California and the West Coast as we introduce the Jimboy’s brand across the US.”
 
"We are looking forward to sharing Jimboy's Tacos with our locals and all of the tourists who we hope will keep coming back for more. And very soon there will be more places to get your Jimboy's fix. Next up, our Brea restaurant will be opening, then Irvine and more to come," said Angulo and Romero.
 
Angulo and Romero are also the franchise operators for Jimboy’s Tacos’ other Orange County location in Anaheim, and are slated to open two more locations in Brea and Irvine this summer. In addition, Jimboy’s plans to open 20 more locations in 2019, and is on target to have 100 locations by 2020. The growing brand, which currently operates 40 locations in Northern California and Reno, Nevada, has become immensely popular with restaurant operators interested in becoming franchise partners to continue its West Coast growth and across the United States.
