Pelon's is at the north end and kind off the beaten path but is a MUST GO if you are in Virginia Beach. They can get buys but we arrived at about 5:45pm; a tad early but had our 7 year old daughter with so...More

What a great place to eat! Order at the counter, find a seat and the servers bring the food to you. We enjoyed the burrito, nachos, and quesadilla, and took advantage of the margarita special of the day. Quick service, great food, and fun decor...More

Our family came for tacos and burritos after a day at the beach. It really hit the spot. I particularly enjoyed the elote corn! We got the trio chips and dip for the table and ate it all. Burritos were the perfect size, not too...More

Dinner on a Monday night...service was very good and we had a good dinner. The burritos are large and stuffed with all kinds of goodies. For a quick and good meal at the oceanfront, make a stop by Pelons!More

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to try it. The tacos were good. I loved the chips and it's the best guacamole I've ever had. Would go back.

Pelon's has a great name in the area for being delicious and fresh. It didn't disappoint. We arrived around 7:30 pm and it was packed! Despite that the line to order went quickly and there were tables available indoors and outdoors. We waited probably 15-20...More

Went here while on vacation with my husband and 4 year old. Guac was very fresh. My husband enjoyed the California burrito. My tacos (I tried chicken and carne asada) were not well seasoned. Chicken was quite bland. For a family of three, the meal...More

Tia, it's a shame your tacos weren't quite up to our standards. Bland food is never the goal here, and I'm sorry if that was the case with your meal. I'm glad the guac and burrito were tasty, though. I hope you'll stop by again...More

Our soy meat products our 40% higher than regular beef, chicken and cheese. The sour cream is not available in bulk like regular sour cream which creates a high food cost.

Description
Pelon's Baja Grill specializes in fresh Mexican fare inspired by California Baja style preparations. When you walk in, we want you to close your eyes and feel the sand in your feet and smell the ocean in your nose. A Pelon's, we've taken the best slice of Cali and served it up in store. We've always taken the fresh approach to food, our veggies are green, our onions are potent and some customers report that our fish tacos are so fresh, that they've jumped out of the food, flopped around a little and then smacked them in the face. Enjoy your meal with guacamole and salsa that are made fresh daily. From tacos to tequilas, burritos and margarita's there's nothing quite like Pelon's. Fresh Baja Food. There's only one place to get it.
