Nothing.......EVER......better than a beach taco shop. In all my travels, the beach taco shops outdo the big restaurants everytime. Maybe it's subjective but I love them and Pedro's did NOT disappoint. Great fish tacos and incredible peach soda.

Pedro's is perfect for a quick, cheap and tasty bite on the go. Who wouldn't love carne asada tacos, or tater-tots in a wrap? Delicious!

Pick up your food to go place, but the long line is telling. This is my first time visiting here, but I will most likely be back when I am in this area again. Tacos- fish were very good, with cabbage and stuffed to the gills. One thing to note- you pay and it is not cheap, I believe a... More

Blink and you could miss some of the best Mexican food in the area. Very reasonably priced, good portions, and great taste... put it all together for a deal that can't be beat.

Maybe not the "world's best" as so-claimed, but very good in any event. Great comfort food after a swim or night out.
