Everything was great. The tacos and salads were amazing. You have to try the fish tacos, though. The margaritas were great and good beer selection! And the prices were incredible.

Get the fish tacos...you can get other items, but make sure you include fish tacos. The chunky version of their guacamole is really good (lots of garlic and onion). Very good draft beer selection. We went during the week between Christmas and New Years Eve....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.

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.
