Ok, let me start by saying I grew up in Pittsburg, everyone in town knows the owner, and if you did eat at The Mecca regularly growing up, you really weren't from Pittsburg. The New Mecca is a Pittsburg staple. It's been in the same location (although now expanded) as long as I can remember....and I'm turning 61 this year.... More

New Mecca Cafe is an institution. I have been going there for over 4 decades. The food is always good as well as the service considering how busy they get.

If you ever visit the East Bay, you must stop at the New Mecca for lunch or dinner. They cater for the Bay Area professional sports teams and All Star games it's that good.

I have grown up near the Mecca my whole life and they haven't changed a bit. I have been there so maybe times I couldn't count and every time I left satisfied. If you have not been then you need to go ASAP.

We love this place because of it's authentic Mexican cuisine. It also has a great ambiance, a fun place to go to. We have had them cater several of our office parties and they did an outstanding job. Even though a bit away from us, a great place to go to.

Good family luncheon. Food and service was excellent and abundant. Love the bean dip. They offer dishes in full as well as half sizes. They also serve a carne asada that is not on the menu but one of their specialties that our family members love.

You will not be disappointed when you go to New Mecca Cafe. You get bang for your money and you will not go home hungry. Try their iced tea and enjoy the free bean dip. You might just end up taking some home with you.
