“Exploring.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The best fish tacos I have had.
Not much seating as it is a little spot, just a bench outside. I think most of the people take their tacos to go.
Our tacos were on special and what a great value!

“Great food after the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stay in San Clemente every year, and going to Pedro's Tacos after playing at the beach has become a family tradition. It's delicious, fast, and inexpensive. There's really no seating to speak of, so I recommend getting the food to go. Well worth the trip.

“Pedro's Tacos - San Clemente North”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Long time San Clemente favorite (there is one in south San Clemente, but I like the North store better). Can be busy at peak times but the wait isn't usually that long. Don't go here if you are looking for ambience. This is no frills place for those who are looking for good food at good prices. Only seating is a curved bench out in front of the order window.

Recommendations:
Drink:
Horchata is very good. They often have several kinds to choose from

Food:
1. Fried Chicken Burrito. Awesome trust me. One of the more expensive items on the menu but a real treat (there is also fried chicken tacos)
2. Lupe's Mistake Burrito. Yep, that's what it's called. Listed on the order window with the ingredients. Can't remember it all but made with butter shrimp (generous), rice, white sauce, etc... Absolutely terrific. Like the fried chicken burrito, one of the more expensive items on the menu but worth it.
3. Bean and cheese burritos are an all-time favorite and very inexpensive.
4. You really must try a bean and potato burrito as well, an all-time favorite and cheap.

Reminder: They are cash-only. If you don't have any on hand there is an ATM right there on premises next to the order window.

“excellent fish tacos and horchata”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Got a chance to try their fish tacos on the way home. The tortilla was soft and fluffy, the vegetables were crisp and the fish flaky. The horchata was just right, not too sweet as I usually get from a dispenser. Will come back the next time I'm around the area.

“YUMMY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Get the fish tacos and a side of guacamole! The fish burrito wasn't as tasty as the taco. So good after a day at the beach!
