Good Mariscos

Good mariscos, (Mexican style seafood.) Reasonable prices. Service can be slow at times, if the place is crowded.

Our friends drive up from Atascadero (2 hours) to meet us for lunch and they said it was worth the drive. Seafood here is great. I had octopus (pulpo) with peppers and onions in a nice red sauce. The others had fish tacos, chicken tostada and a whole, deep fried fish. This is a busy place but very close to... More

If you want glossy glitter, this is not the place. If you want perhaps the best Mexican food on the Central Coast, nitty-gritty decor (it's a former DQ) and atmosphere to take your breath away (the little girls in their First Communion dresses on Sunday are absolute charmers) - in other words, if you want a totally down home experience,...

Gutierrez & Rico’s Drive-In is the place to go for fresh and delicious, authentic Mexican food. The place is filled with locals and Mexicans, which is always a good sign that you are about to eat some great food. The dining area is small as most people get their orders to-go. Feel free to sit in the parking lot and... More

This is a great place to get authentic mexican food. The burritos are awesome! Most everything I've had there is terrific. Most people just get stuff to go. There is a large selection of items and they are always busy!!
