The global outbreak of COVID-19, or coronavirus, continues to evolve and disrupt many aspects of our daily lives. We understand what a challenging time this is for everyone, and Celinda’s first concern is for you and your families. We hope you are all safe and taking precautions to stay that way.
Celinda's has taken added precautions to protect both our team members and all of you. We've augmented daily cleaning procedures with the use of disinfectant products, have made hand sanitizer readily available, and are actively promoting best practices recommended by the CDC, and the OC Health Agency for the most up to date information for our community.
So if anyone needs to feed the family we'll be here for you to get "take out". Thank you for being a valued customer and your understanding during this time, and we will continue to keep you informed of any changes.

Featured Items on the Menu

The RSM Burrito

Try one of our tastiest new addition to our menu. This tender, juicy burrito is filled with carnitas, fresh green lettuce, pico de gallo, cheese, avocado and Celinda's special sauce. All wrapped up in a warm fresh flour tortilla.

Cheese - Mushroom Quesadilla

Another delicious new item in our menu is the cheese-mushroom quesadilla. Sautéd mushrooms with melted cheese, really to die for!

Celinda's Creamy, Fresh Guac

There is nothing quite as healthy and delicious as Celinda's guacamole. This is probably the one item Celindas is best known for. Some say this is the best guacamole in town.

What Our Customers Say About Us

"Good nachos, good chips, good pico de gallo, and good veggie tostada bowl. They have BY FAR the best chips and pico de gallo, both of which are made there. And they offer their chips both salted and unsalted, which is nice. The tostada bowl is super huge and filling (and most of the time I can't even finish it) but it's really good."

Kelsay S. RSM

"I have been going to Celinda's for more than 20 years! I love it! It is family owned, and have the best Mexican food around! Love their chips, salsa, guacamole, chile relleno, everything on the menu is great!"

Julia R

"There is not much more to say than the food here is absolutely delicious, beyond good. I have been going here since I was a kid, therefore, I have literally come to this restaurant hundreds of times. My parents used to take the family here sometimes twice a week. There are not many weeks in my life where I did not come to this place and eat awesome food."

Dorothy T.

"My family has been going to Celinda's since I can remember, and they are my favorite take-out Mexican place! Cheese enchiladas are good...so are the chicken tacos. Tacos come with two corn tortillas wrapped in foil. Don't miss out on buying the homemade guac and chips. I could eat those all day! They now have cinnamon sugar tortillas chips I have yet to try but I'll save that for next trip!"
