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.

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.

My friend and I stopped at Pismo Beach on our drive down Highway 1 and found this cute little restaurant. You order at the counter and then they bring your food out to you.

Great food and service! Got this place as a recommendation from some locals, did not disappoint. Fresh salsa and guacamole, warm chips, and great fish tacos. It's next to easy parking and a block from the pier/beach.
