Maybe I should have gone there for breakfast. I hear they have a good breakfast menu. I took my two boys for lunch. I had Nachos and they had a kids meal, one with grilled cheese, the other with quesadilla. The food was good, nothing really special, but good. I do like how they give the kids a child cup... More

A smallish, sidewalk style Mexican cafe, Zorro's never disappoints. The food is delicious, and their breakfasts, which are available until 3PM, are to die for. My favorite is the Green Chile Omelet, which is the tastiest Chile Verde on the planet. Every ingredient is fresh, hand chopped, prepared to order. Also, the Chile Relleno (fresh Poblano chile) is one of... More

A small but fun place for a casual and tasty breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Most of the seating is outdoors which is pleasant most days. My spouse and I love their breakfasts with hearty pancakes and delicious omlets. The service is good and the atmosphere welcoming. It can be very busy on weekends and holidays.

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
