Good, fast, to-go (or eat in) place for fresh Mexican is Caliente on 17th street in Costa Mesa. Had a typical southwest chicken salad for lunch. Was impressed. Light, quality ingredients, southwest style. I like a mild salsa (avocado dressing or baja salsa like Baja Fresh), but all were good, so I'm told. Better than La Salsa next door. Not too far from Taco Mesa. Comparable on some dishes.
