On my son's recommendation we went to Pelon's last night for fish tacos after a disappointing fish taco meal from a local fish taco truck. He was spot on. My daughter ordered the Big Kahuna burrito with a drink (on Tuesday's it comes with a free brownie) and the three of us, my son, myself and my hubby all ordered... More

Fish tacos - fried fish, dry, below average. Chips - too dry, low on taste. Salsa - below average, not tasty. Soup - seems like boiled salsa with very little of anything.

I thought the food was a little bland. The service was really slow. I ate there once but didn't return.

Come here quite often, but I've only tried and order one thing! Fish Tacos! These are a great fix for your fish taco cravings, I'd say second best in Virginia Beach! The price is good, the atmosphere is great as is the service.

Pelon's is an easy option for a quick lunch or dinner - good food and service if a little overpriced. There are interesting options for vegetarians, and a casual, friendly crowd.

It was a pretty standard taco place by the beach. I chose the Hang Ten with a whole wheat tortilla, which was quite heavy and filling. They may have left out the guacamole (or not put too much), but they gave me a cup of the smooth guacamole when I asked. My friends' vegetarian taco was lighter and quite tasty,... More

A locals place, not fancy, but very good food. There does not seem to be a lot of mexican restaurants near the beach, but this one fits the bill. We had a beef burrito and chicken chimichanga. Tasty! The burrito was big and the beef excellent. The chimichanga was crunchy with a lot of flavor. Our lunch cost around $20,... More

I love fish tacos. In fact, I'm kind of obsessed with finding the perfect one. So on my recent trip to Virginia beach, I set out to find the best. According to online reviews, a good place to start such a quest is at Pelon's Baja Grill on Pacific near the ocean. The restaurant is located in a small strip... More

I had some delicious fish tacos, and had a plethora of good quality hot sauces to choose from to supplement. The food was good, but there was a mediocre to low selection of beer unfortunately. Service was slow, but not horrible.

This restaurant is overpriced and nothing special. The wait staff is not friendly and the food is average. If you've ever eaten similar food in San Diego, you'll be extremely disappointed.
