We were happy to find this place close to our hotel. It is big and there were many options and the food came out good. However, 3 out of 8 of us didn't feel well afterward. We ordered different things so I don't know what...More

Such a warm welcome from Christian, he advised me on the meal selection. Second night I had shrimp tacos. My God! They were good, fresh, zingy and bursting with flavour. Wish I'd had seconds!

Christian's recommendations would never lead you astray, Martyn! I'm glad your shrimp tacos were second to none. There's always more where that came from, so I hope you'll be back in to see us again soon! Cheers, John

Food was delicious. Place was clean & the person who took our order was helpful. Was more like a fast food restaurant rather than a sit down one.

This is a good place to get excellent fish tacos. There are very good street style "elotes" corn on the cob. There is a great variety of beers! It is off the boardwalk but worth the short walk.

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.
