Excellent home style Mexican food. Shrimp tacos and seafood enchiladas were great! Salsa was good also. Best of all the price was right.

We visited Medusas in April 2014. We we're late to arrive and they were obviously about to lock up but greeted us through the door and didn't make us feel as though we needed to rush. Obviously a local favourite with a relaxed atmosphere. We were doing a road trip around the west coast and this was the best Mexican... More

Arrived at Medusa's Taqueria 20 minutes before closing. We were hungry and tired after driving from Monterey Bay, visiting Pfeiffer State Beach, and checking in at our hotel in San Simeon. Despite the late hour the staff welcomed us in and insisted that we take our time to order and enjoy our meal. The shrimp tacos and butternut squash enchiladas... More

The atmosphere was a bit funky but we had open minds so we gave it a chance. Staff was nice but after she took our order she also got herself a burrito and sat down at the next table to eat. Her back was turned towards us and she never checked on us. We had the veggie burritos. Tasted OK... More

This is a tiny place with only 5 tables indoors and some bar stools outside. Very good basic Mexican food. We had seafood enchiladas which actually had a lot of seafood (shrimp and crab) inside. Service (by the owner I assume) was very friendly. Lots of take-out customers. If you just crave Mexican food and don't mind a very simple... More

This is an unassuming little restaurant which is a gem of a find. We had checked the TripAdvisor ratings and our conclusion is that Medusa’s is much better than its rating if you like really authentic Mexican food. My wife & I arrived for a late supper at about 7:30. There are only about 6 tables and some barstool type... More

Food and service are both better here than at Las Cambritas, and the prices are way lower. This is an "authentic" Mexican Taqueria -- the decor is what one would expect. It's not fancy, but it is good, fast, inexpensive and authentic.

We were looking for a nice Mexican Cafe in Cambria for lunch and have eaten at Medusa"s before. We both got the Burritos, one regular and one Super, both with carnitas (pork). They were delicious! And quite inexpensive. Really great food with chips and a great salsa. Several hours later we both started feeling queazy and nauseated with vomiting. That... More
