I love pedros tacos because it is true Californian food! The shrimp tacos are always a hit and the sauces they give on the side are awesome. Great place to catch some grub after a long beach day.

I was told at the hotel we were staying at that I must go to Pedro's Tacos! First timers in San Clemente! We did. I ordered the Potato Taco, 2 Cheese Quesadillas, Guacamole and chips. I am not sure what the hype is about. The entire area around this place is kinda gross. Not the greatest area. The bench that... More

Anyone who thinks this is life-changing Mexican has been living at the North Pole. It's pretty basic stuff, but very cheap and perfectly fine for a quick evening takeaway. The carne asado taco is, as others say, fairly tasty - although it's not exactly going to win awards. $20 will feed a family which is a great result if you've... More

I have a cast iron stomach but this place put me in the ground. We were staying at the San Clemente State Campground for a week. Went there the first night to get a bite to eat and we were both sick all night. I am not one to push places to the curb so we tried it 4 days... More

I really wanted to like this place. Visiting from Washington, locals raved about it. Sister in law warned me not to go... I thought surely it's not that bad. So wrong. I got the taquitos... If you can call them that... They were fried so much that they were rock hard. Beans saved them, rice was ok. Husband got the... More

Whenever I'm away from home for too long, I miss my family, friends and the beach. I also miss Pedro's tacos. I don't know if it's just that "taste of home" but it is one solid Mexican joint if you're looking for some quick and tasty grids to take to the beach. The fish taco is always good, but my... More

Pedro's is my favorite fast mexican food in town. When they are good, they are great! I typically enjoy their carne asada tacos and burritos, rolled tacos, etc. The drive through is relatively fast and accurate, especially when the owner/manager is there. When management is absent, the drive through slows down and the service can be down right disinterested. Also... More

Pedro's is "fast" food, that takes a little time, but it is always worth the wait. This is simple, basic and good food. The fish tacos are excellent - deep fried fish, cabbage and white sauce - and they are full size. Rolled tacos are a great followup or perfect to share. This is not fine dining, but when you...
