We decided to eat breakfast here. The girl helping us was so nice. I had the cheese enchilada with rice and beans child's plate for breakfast. It was a large portion and delicious. My husband loved his eggs and salsa. Clean restaurant and great location.

We go here for the Shrimp Cocktail (Mexican Style)...hard to find around here and they do a great job! Also good tacos, etc. Tiny little place but we keep going back for the Cocktail! One of our favorite spots. Owner is very pleasant and accommodating as well.

Great huevos rancheros. Friendly, efficient staff. We got our food to go and ate it at a picnic table overlooking the ocean ('cause we had our dog with us).

Best street tacos and hot sauces ever. Burritos are good too. Fast paced atmosphere watching people go by to the pier. It is a fav place we visit for each vacation.

Right at the Pismo beach, this was one of the best Mexican food we had on our drive along the PCH. Recommend highly for the vegetarians out there - lovely veg. burritos, one of the best we ever had! And a friendly service by the staff to match!

Stopped here during a visit to PB and had a fish taco. The taco was very good and fresh. A taco and a beer came out to be $9.25 and it was plenty of food for a lunch.

Had dinner here two nights - not for lack of places to eat, but because the burritos were SO GOOD. Great prices too. Lots of good-looking Mexican Food - but only had burritos and the excellent Fish Tacos.

I went to this restaurant because I wanted to have a sit down dinner after a day at the beach, I have been here before and the food is good, but as most travelers said the place is small, but this time I wasn't happy, flies was flying around my dinner and so as my guest, I was hitting them,...

Had 3 soft tacos plate. Generous portions of tasty carnitas (my meat of choice) dressed with onions and cilantro on double soft corn tortillas. Served with rice and refried beans. Fast service. Funky little joint in the old section of this quintessential funky little California beach town.
