Pretty Good

It is a very plain Jane kind of restaurant, but the food was pretty good. It's like a ma and pas place and service was good too. Average prices and good potions.

We were told that we would have authentic, family style Mexican food and that is exactly what we got! Great flavor, inexpensive, and very authentic! A must to visit!

We love Perlita's. This is a small restaurant, run by a local family. They are super friendly, fairly priced and the food is always tasty. There are many local Mexican food options, this is definitely one of the "go to" places.

This small restaurant serves authentic Mexican food, but the quality of the food is unfortunately just average. Their house-made salsa is excellent, though.

Pertlita's has friendly staff and attentive waitresses. The food is good. Not the best I've ever had but way better than Taco Bell and the other Mexican food options in Crescent City. Our fajitas were good but not amazing. No fresh lettuce or pico de gallo was served with it. Rice was pretty flavorless. Chips and salsa are mediocre. It... More

Excellent home made mexican food. The restaurant is small and not decorated very well, but the food is very good.

My husband & I generally get our food to take home. The food is always delicious and the staff is helpful and friendly. We have tried a great deal of a variety mexican food and always find it wonderful. The price is very reasonable. We have taken out lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed!

Just south of town on Hwy 101, this little place is superb. Family owned with friendly service, you won't be disappointed. Try the lengua tacos!

Good food, friendly staff. Simple menu but very well made. We had a chimichanga, sope and a soft taco. The Pico was spicy but a good add to everything. Would definitely recommend.

Got a to go order later in the evening to bring back to the hotel. The food was amazing. I literally scarfed it down. Got three rolled tacos that came with a side of rice and beans as well as a helping of pico de galo, guac and sour cream. Huge portions and so very very inexpensive. I wish I... More
