Decent food

Not really any vegetarian options and you cannot customize the food items. The food was alright, and authentic.

This small restaurant is located across the street from the Monterey Bay Plaza hotel...my husband and I found it a few years ago and now we make it a point to have breakfast there each morning. Burritos are on the menu but they were make smaller versions using the taco size shell. Food is very good and the cost is... More

Carne. Asada. Fries. Delicious food and great salsa! Everything was fresh. Large selection of domestic and imported drinks. Very friendly staff. Can't wait to get more Carne asada fries!

Consistently Good Mexican food. Right on Cannery Row, just steps from San Carlos Beach. Take out and stroll over to the beach picnic tables. What a view!

I went to Papa Chevos to get an evening Quesadilla. It was boring and without much taste. The red sause was to spicy and the green sause was not good. The following night I got really bad in my stomack and i'm pretty sure the Quesadilla was the reason. The local is not nice.

Not the greatest Mexican food but staff is friendly and prices are reasonable for the area. The quality of the meat wasn't the best. I'd opt for a vegetarian option if I went back. They are tucked away and difficult to see sign from street. Right next to Adventures by the Sea.

Small hole-in-the-wall restaurant with delicious Mexican food that is not expensive. Staff is very friendly. Take your food and go, or walk across the hallway to the dining room. Close to Coastguard Pier.

This place looks a little ropey from the outside and it is not overly clean once you get in. Gruff service. Burrito was very poor, lacking both flavour and texture. My son had a burger, but left all but one bite saying it was awful. I tasted it and it was truly dreadful - really poor quality meat. OK, so... More

In the last year I have eaten my fair share of adobada tacos from Seattle to Arizona. If you want good food, then I highly recommend this place even with paper plates and plastic forks. I agree that real silverware and plates would improve the ambience, but the food is worth the eating and the price. The adobada was prepared... More
