Great Southern California style Mexican food, good beer selection. Try the taquitos! The chilaquiles for breakfast were large enough to be shared by two of us.

Wish we had discovered it sooner! Apparently there is usually a line down the street and for good reason. We had breakfast on a Monday, around 9. No wait and delicious food. My husband had a seafood omelet and I had eggs benedict with crab in place of ham. Both were large portions at great prices! Looking for a good... More

We had breakfast at Zorro's on Sunday. It was absolutely delicious. I ordered the Greek omelet made with kalamata olives, feta, and spinach. There were several sides to choose from and I ordered hash browns (YUM!) and a zucchini muffin. The food was excellent and the plates were so hot they kept the food hot for a very long time.... More

Typically a busy place, but totally worth the wait! The servers are grade A and do a great job maneuvering in tight quarters. Zorro's always has happy atmosphere. Their Mexican cuisine is 5 stars fantastic- their american options are good but not a 5

With Zorro’s having been recommended by three different people at our resort, my wife & I decided to stop in for an early dinner. This small, corner location can easily be overlooked, but that would be a travesty. We had three wait staff taking care of our every need, making the service unbeatable. As with any Mexican food restaurant, chips... More

We were delighted to find another good spot to eat on visits to Pismo/Shell Beach. Our party of 6 was a bit of a challenge, but a table was quickly set up, and the menu offered a wide enough range of items to satisfy everyone. The clam chowder is the best we have found in the area, and the other... More

Finally braved the crowds and had dinner. It was worth it. Our party of six was a challenge but after 15 min wait they apologetically sat us in the rear room by ourselves. We kind of liked it there with no one else in the room. Service was still stellar with multiple baskets of chips and bowl after bowl of... More

We went mid-morning on a Saturday. This is a very informal, street-front restaurant right on a fairly busy road. There were probably 15 people waiting for tables and we had no hope of getting the 14 in our group served anytime soon. But the guy worked wonders, and within 15 minutes the staff has placed a long row of small... More

My husband and I went to zorros for breakfast. Its not a fancy place. Its a cute little, warm friendly open air restaurant. service was fast, friendly, and the food was fresh, nice assortment of fruit with my meal, delicious and not overly salty. We just stopped in and left full and happy.

Went here for lunch and then back again for dinner (take out). Eat inside - small but cozy. Service was great and Alex who took our name outside and seated us really keeps things running smooth. Place is packed with a line anytime of day or night that we went by. They offer coffee and ice water outside to people... More
