“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

We had lunch. We shared a chicken burrito with rice and beans. The burrito had a good amount of chicken with beans and rice inside. The chips and salsa were tasty. The beans on the side were a little bland but overall the meal was delicious. We will go back when we are in PG.

“Good spot for quality Mexican food in Pacific Grove”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

This is a simple but very good Mexican restaurant in Pacific Grove, which dosen't have very many decent spots for quality Mexican. The tortillas are homemade along with the salsas out of fresh ingrediants and the quality comes thru. Tacos are outstanding. Pricing is ok for Pacific Grove which is generally on the high side. Service is prompt and friendly. This might be a 3 star in Salinas, where there are more choices, but in the PG market it is 4 star if you just have to have your Mexican food.

“Great casual dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

Down a side street near the Natural History Museum its worth the 1/2 block walk off Lighthouse Blvd. A couple visits have confirmed that good food and a large selection of beer is available to enjoy. The Salsa is awesome with more of a mole taste than the more common tomato hot spice version.

“Best Mexican Food Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

If you like carnitas, this is the best place to get it! Mando's makes great carnitas tacos, chile rellenos, and great homemade salsa. They provide really great portions, and the prices are really good. I take people here for Mexican food when they are in Pacific Grove, and I sometimes just come by for a beer and a take-out order on a work night. The waiters are friendly and helpful without being overbearing and hovering, and the ambiance is nice. It is not fancy, but it is delicious. It is much better than the other Mexican restaurants around.
