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.

why cant they wipe off a table or clean the floor just a little bit. The foods good but the place just feels dirty. The staff must like the music - loud you have to shout at your dinning partner.. you can have a beach...More

Cleanliness is really important to us, Mike, and I'm sorry if that wasn't apparent when you stopped by. It's also a shame the music had any negative effect on your experience, too. Overall, this is good feedback, and I appreciate you bringing this to our...More

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.

I have not had California/Baja-leaning mexican for awhile, and this hit the spot. The place is a lot bigger than it looks from the inside. The outside patio allows dogs but there are only 4 or 5 tables, so it may be hard to get...More

Happy to hear that you enjoyed our spot, Erica! It sounds like you ordered well -- the surf's up burrito is one of my favorites. As for the margaritas, I can assure you they have more of a hidden punch than you think. That said,...More

Where do I start? How about standing in line to place your order? Already a sign of a poor restaurant. Plan on paying extra for shredded cheese, sour cream, rice, and re-fried beans. After you pay, proceed to a table with your number, if you...More

We found this place near our hotel...best food we had all week. The tacos were the best I've had in years. Easy to carry out if you'd rather eat at your hotel like we did. We'll definitely be back.

The place looks fantastic with its rustic surfer shack look and the food is good! We will come back next time we come to VB.

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.
