We visit Pismo beach 3 to 4 times yearly over the past many years and Zorro's is always a stop. Usually for brunch although this time for dinner, The fish piccata was excellent as was the steak tacos Now hard choice between bunch and dinner

Zorros is great food! It has the best fish and chips in the Pismo area! There chips and salsa are really good too. You can eat breakfast- which is really tasty food too. We have nothing bad to say. People working there are really friendly....More

One of the best meals I had on my trip to California- the food the service the recommendations all were good. Even for vegetarians there were a lot of options and the food was customised to suit them. Good find.

Beyond all of the standard breakfast dishes, this Mexican oriented restaurant has burritos, tamales and enchiladas with egg combos as well as the popular huevos rancheros. It`s busy and on the weekends especially it may require a wait. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.

My food was good, my wife wasn't thrilled. My wife won't return; however, I would've if I hadn't found a 'dark curly' on the lemon.

Their website doesn't appear to list their hours. But we got there close to 8 pm and the place was filled with diners. They didn't look like they were about to close anytime soon.
