This place is a little ramshack of a place, but has delicious traditional Mexican foods my whole family loves. The place is clean, but old, however the locals all flood here, take food out from here, and my family loves it. They have great pineapple empanadas - one of a kind!

We are from Arizona and have lots of Mexican restaurants. Went to Perlitas only because it was suggested as being OK and within walking distance of our motel. We were blown away by quality food prepared in a mild Sonoran style. Good sized portions and bargain priced. Perlitas seemed to have mostly locals eating there and for good reason -... More

Excellent food in a location with a decent amount of options. There isn't a lot of atmosphere, but we were overly surprised with the quality of the food and the service. We ordered chimichangas with extras which were excellent and full of flavor. My grandson had the chicken corn flautas and he mowed right through them and he is a... More

My partner and I like to visit after church on Sundays and have lunch. We think they are serving nice meals at a reasonable price. Highly recommend.

The food in this restaurant is the best Mexican food we have ever tasted. A great selection of dishes we had numerous dishes over a number of different nights loved it every time

This well-priced place serves authentic Mexican dishes that we enjoyed quite a bit. The only thing we didn't like that much was the flour tortillas, which were almost transparent and a bit greasy, not the typical flour tortillas we are used to (even in Mexico).

This was a $ price list with a $$$ taste. We had the chicken ajitas, supreme chicken burrito and veggie quesada. The veggies were cooked to perfection, the guacamole was fresh, and lettuce crispy. The tortillas were warmed and yummy. We felt this was a great value. The restaurant was clean, and basic. We would like to have this in... More

Really good food in a location without a lot of options. Not a lot of atmosphere, but we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and the service. We ordered chicken fajitas which were excellent. Our server was extremely attentive and did everything she could to make sure that we were well taken care of. If you like... More

Small (10 table) and informal place along 101 that serves some of the better Mexican food I've had lately. Had tacos al pastor and the chicken mole burrito, both of which were excellent!
