Average mexican food right on Cannery Row.

Prices were reasonable and the service was really good. The food is just average in my opinion, however I'm fortunate to live in an area where great mexican food is everywhere. Overall a great place for a quick snack.

While staying at the Monterey Hotel & Spa across the street, came here for a chorizo breakfast burrito, which was served with nacho chips. Very casual place, with plenty of seating. Food was good, nothing outstanding. Definitely worth it though, less that $6 and was tasty and filling. I am sure there are much better Mexican food options in the... More

Sometimes when we vacation in Monterey and get a little hungry late in the evening and we walk to this place. The food is good and prices are low. The service is good. We usually get and order of rolled tacos with rice and beans.

Great location but pricey for the quality of food. The breakfast burrito was probably the worst breakfast burrito that I have ever had. Decided to give them another chance and returned a couple of days later to try the carne asada taco. Again disappointing. Very bland. The guacamole was okay, but the pico and the salsa and salsa verde had... More

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

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.
