Description: Pelon's Baja Grill specializes in fresh Mexican fare inspired by California Baja style preparations. When you walk in, we want you to close you r eyes and feel the sand in your feat 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. 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.

Their website says "The Best Cali-Style Mexican Food & Fish Tacos East of Baja!" and having lived in California, I gotta agree. It was getting late on Sunday night and we'd just arrived in town, hungry for a quick bite and not eager for a full on sit-down restaurant meal. This casual eatery was perfect. The chunky, fresh guacamole and... More

My first time. The service was good. A nice size menu. My tacos were good. I got my food to go because I was staying close by but it looked like a nice place to sit in and eat.

Laid back atmosphere with friendly service. Loved the fish tacos and burrito. Guacamole is awesome. Margarita hit the spot. All around great experience. We'll be back!

We just arrived at Virgina Beach and were looking somewhere to eat. We saw Baja Grill and decided to go there. Personally I don't really like mexican food so I got a small order of chicken nuggets. They were pretty good except for the after taste. Everyone else in my family seemed to like the mexican food they served. For... More

Every time we are in VA Beach we eat here at least once if not more. Their food is excellent and always fresh. They can get busy around lunch and dinner time so you could wait, but the staff is friendly and it's worth the wait.

Had to come back since our last visit. And it didn't disappoint. Had their nacho with salsa, guac and cheese and it was good. Had their chicken, carnitas and carne asada tacos. Chicken was surprisingly the best of them imo. Good eats! You obviously keep it up.

The food was fantastic! We had chicken taco's, nacho's and queso with chips. Fresh, hot and great flavor. The atmosphere was inviting and relaxed. The staff was terrific and the prices were great. There was also plenty of parking out front. This was a welcome highlight to our trip. I would go there again and would recommend highly to friends... More

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.
