We enjoyed the burritos a lot. They were big and full of fresh ingredients. The kids menu was the only downside, it was pretty pricy for a few frozen nuggets and fries. Other than that the place was excellent and the staff was friendly. We'll be back if we ever visit VA Beach again.

Their beachy, chill atmosphere is welcoming. It's an easy walk from the actual beach too. We frequent this place a lot and their vegetarian tacos and fish tacos are the best. The pomegranate margarita is really good too! They have a pretty big menu to choose from as well.

Nothing to write home about. The carne asada had to be drenched in hot sauce to give it flavor. The salsa was onion based and therefore tasted like straight onion. The chips were fresh and crispy though.

Bland food is not what we're about here, and it's a shame if your carne asada and salsa weren't up to par. I hope you'll give us another try sometime -- I know we can do better than this. Cheers, John More

We enjoyed the shrimp tacos, the surf and turf burritos and the dude burrito. The chips and guac were delicious and the guac was so yummy. Nice selection of draft drinks! Loved the pineapple cider. Would definitely go back. Maybe even this visit to Va Beach.

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.
