Yum!

Coming down from Big Sur, we spent the night in San Simeon before our Hearst Castle tour the next day and decided to grab a bite to eat after seeing the sea lions nearby. We stumbled by chance upon this place as I had a huge craving for Mexican, something I don't normally crave, but being in CA... read more

Stopped there several years ago and make this a must stop every time I am in the area. Tiny hole-in-the-place, but outstanding food. Very small- right on Main st, as you are leaving or entering town. Breakfast/lunch or dinner try them all.

This restaurant was recommended by the check-in person at our local hotel. My daughter wanted Mexican food, and this person said the restaurant had the best Mexican food around. My daughter's chicken fajitas were to die for! She says she's never had better. I tend to go with safe choices when trying out a new restaurant and had the nachos... More

This place is pretty straight forward, no hassle Mexican food. Menu was standard Mexican cuisine, no complaints on service and price. We visited on a Thursday evening around 7 pm. We found a seat, as it is very small restaurant and take out, the seating was compact. We were fortunate in that is wasn't crowded. We read reviews on the... More

I'm sure there are many people who love spicy food, but my stomach can't handle it. I was sick for hours after the dinner. I wish they would warn you about the spicy food!

If you want authentic Mexican food, this is the place to go in Cambria. It is small, but great food. My husband and I are huge Mexican food fans and this place did not disappoint. The salsa is super fresh and the chips light and perfect. We had chile rellenos and the child were roasted perfectly before being lightly battered... More

Medusa's food is fantastic. The service is done with a smile. I wish I had asked the waitresses name she was fantastic!

I loved the menu, the service was fab, and fast, and the indoor is small, outdoor is small, but the food is big! Mmm. I would get the tacos, they are tijuana style and tasty grinds. Reasonable prices, great food! Viva Mexico!

Nice little Mexican Restaurant in Cambria. I had heard about the breakfast burritos and went to try one. Alas I saw Chili Verde and had to go with that. The Chili Verde supreme burrito has all the usual goodies I have come to expect in a burrito and I will say the nice chunks if pork were cooked just right.... More
