We were looking for a casual place to eat after exploring the coast all day and came upon this place. Excellent burritos but they did offer burgers and sandwiches also. Definitely recommend.

To put it simply, our experience at pirates cove was terrible. The salad my mom ordered was dirty, the lettuce had not been cleaned properly and you could see the specks of dirt and taste the grittiness. The grilled cheese my little sister order had...More

We decided to try it. We went there years before when it just turned into a Mexican place and thought it was good then – well it still is and is still run by the same people. The service was great. We asked to sit...More
