This is one of my favorite restaurants. My husband and I had our first date here 15 years ago and have since moved away but anytime we are visiting we have to make a special trip. My entire family enjoys the salsa and any number of meals served here. I highly recommend. The atmosphere is calm and pleasant, the service... More

We went to the Texas St (near Home Depot) location - they have multiple locations. Very good food - particularly good super-burrito (shredded meat). Their chips are thinner than those at similar restaurants, and tastier. We liked their salsa bar - you have the choice of mild to really spicy jalapeno salsa. Recommend this place.

Eat here often. Food is good. Staff friendly and family friendly. Like the happy hour menu and big burrito. Great thin chips and salsa bar.

I've been dining at Pelayos Mexican Restaurant(s) since they had the one in the Luckys shopping center on N Texas St over 30yrs. ago. I usually east at the Tacqueria in Vacaville most Tuesdays and the food is consistently delicious.

We have visited Pelayo's several times and had a good meal each time. Prices are fair, and service is normally good.

I visited at lunch time today and wasn't expecting much when I sat down. The chips were good but the salsa that was brought with them was more like sauce than salsa. I was able to dress it up with a few selections from the salsa bar so it worked out. When I ordered my fajita burrito, I was expecting... More

I usually go for lunch. Service is prompt and professional then. But when we went this past Sunday, it seemed like a completely different restaurant. We were seated quickly and ordered drinks. Only one drink of 2 was delivered. When another waitress checked on us 10 minutes later I requested the undelivered drink. It was some time before it arrived.... More

After we took the Jelly Belly tour, we were hungry for Mexican food. We found Pelayo’s and so glad we did! They have happy hour from 3-7 which usually means good prices on drinks, but here it also meant ½ price appetizers and $5 grande burritos. There were three in our party and we each got a different appetizer. We... More
