Pelon's Baja Grill specializes in fresh Mexican fare inspired by California Baja style preparations. When you walk in, we want you to close your eyes and feel the sand in your feet and smell the ocean in your nose. A Pelon's, we've taken the best slice of Cali and served it up in store. We've always taken the fresh approach to food, our veggies are green, our onions are potent and some customers report that our fish tacos are so fresh, that they've jumped out of the food, flopped around a little and then smacked them in the face. Enjoy your meal with guacamole and salsa that are made fresh daily. From tacos to tequilas, burritos and margarita's there's nothing quite like Pelon's. Fresh Baja Food. There's only one place to get it.

This place was recommended to us by a friend who visits Virginia Beach often. We stopped in on a Monday and scored some excellent $6 margaritas (bonus). The fish tacos were very good, the sauce on them was so tasty. They also offered a corn-on-the-cob that was mouthwatering. We met the owner, John, who was very accommodating. Would love one... More

Stopped by during trip to Va beach. Friendly, quaint establishment one block from Atlantic Avenue. The chi chi and dude burritos were very good. Order at the counter - east in and out.

Food is fresh and very tasty. You order at counter and food is brought to you. Fast service while it was crowded. Was very happy with the vegan options. Will definitely be back.

My husband really enjoyed his meal, I thought my fish tacos were pretty average frankly (the cabbage could have used some kind of flavor). The margaritas were overpriced. If my family hadn't enjoyed it so much I would have ranked it a bit lower.

John M, Owner at Pelon's Baja Grill, responded to this review

Though I'm thrilled your family enjoyed everything, I do apologize if those fish tacos left a little something to be desired. Never hesitate to let us know right away if anything isn't 100% tasty. We'd be happy to do whatever we can in the moment to ensure you leave full and smiling. Cheers, John More

I stopped in here for a quick bite after spending a day at the Beach. Love their fresh toppings and made to order tacos. The guacomole and queso are great with their fresh made tortilla chips. If you are in need of a quick stop at the Oceanfront for lunch, snacks or dinner, Pelon's is an excellent choice! Surf shop... More

I tried this restaurant by chance and found it very good. Food is tasty and freshly cooked/prepared. I found it very authentic than other Mexican chain restaurant. I ended up having four meals here. Service is a bit slow which is obvious since they are preparing fresh. And a bit costly but worth the taste. Breakfast is also good.

Awesome fish tacos, best I've had anywhere. Lots of burrito options, and good hot sauce options. A cool surf style shop with great food

Wow! What a find! Our first night at the beach with my BFF, we found this awesome place near our hotel. Reasonable prices, excellent food and great margaritas. Service is fast, and the sweet lady behind the counter treats everyone as an old friend. Will definitely be back on our next visit! Check out their specials!

The variety and portion sizes for the cost were great. The staff were friendly, and the food was fresh and enjoyable. Excellent choice after a long day in the sun.
