Saturday is menudo day at Medusa's for my wife. Very good enchiladas, tacos and other soup options. Just hope they serve their home made chips when you dine. The store bought chips don't cut it

For a town with few inexpensive or lighter options for dining, Medusa's fills a needed niche. Don't all towns need an authentic hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant? I shared a yummy carnitas burrito and regretted giving half away (because I enjoyed it so much). The meat was just so tasty, being fried a bit to give it some crispiness. The chips are... More

Although a small simply designed restaurant, the quality, taste and amount of food is what makes me want to return. I'm pretty particular about chili rellanos, and this is one of the best I've had...including many I've had in Mexico. The flavor of the lightly breaded chili is not overwhelmed by too much cheese or saturated by excessive sauce. Just... More

Looking in from the outside, you would have no idea you would be in for a great meal. In fact, once you enter, you still wouldn't guess. The place is small with minimalist seating, but the people were very friendly and accommodating. If you don't see what you are looking for, ask and they may be able to make it.... More

Only place we could find open for breakfast in Cambria at 7;30 am on a weekday and we were not disappointed. Friend loved her omlet and my pancake sausage and egg was very good as well. Staff was friendly

Visited here twice in our short 3 days in Cambria and I can't recommend it enough! Small and simple place but the food speaks for it self! One of the best homemade salsas I've ever had, would have brought it all the way back to Australia with me if I could! The staff were super friendly and great quick service!

Very friendly staff. Affordable prices. That's the best part. Otherwise, we found the food mediocre. Noticed the place is lacking in cleanliness:(. We do not recommend this restaurant.
