We were driving through San Clemente and zipped through Pedro's Taco's drive thru for a quick bite. The Shrimp Burrito was very good, much better quality than I would have expected from a roadside place. Big delicious burrito at a good price. Would definitely visit again!

San Clemente is home for us. When our kids were little, we ate at Pedros at least once a week. You can't beat the value of their menu. We love the rolled tacos (with guacamole and cheese), the fish tacos, and the bean and cheese burritos. It's about as casual as you can get, but it's home so we love... More

Tacos are the thing to order here. The rest of the menu is just average. Carne Asada burrito was a little bland with the meat not having enough of a charred taste.

The best fish tacos I have had. Not much seating as it is a little spot, just a bench outside. I think most of the people take their tacos to go. Our tacos were on special and what a great value!

We stay in San Clemente every year, and going to Pedro's Tacos after playing at the beach has become a family tradition. It's delicious, fast, and inexpensive. There's really no seating to speak of, so I recommend getting the food to go. Well worth the trip.

Long time San Clemente favorite (there is one in south San Clemente, but I like the North store better). Can be busy at peak times but the wait isn't usually that long. Don't go here if you are looking for ambience. This is no frills place for those who are looking for good food at good prices. Only seating is... More

Got a chance to try their fish tacos on the way home. The tortilla was soft and fluffy, the vegetables were crisp and the fish flaky. The horchata was just right, not too sweet as I usually get from a dispenser. Will come back the next time I'm around the area.

Get the fish tacos and a side of guacamole! The fish burrito wasn't as tasty as the taco. So good after a day at the beach!

Used to just love to roll I to San Clemente on vacation and head to Pedro's. we were Worley disappointed this year...the shrimp tacos didn't have as many shrimp in them, the carne asada tacos were not as flavorful, and the wait for our order was quite lengthy. We usually go to Pedro's 3-4 times while we are in San... More
