Down the street from the beach- across from the Plaza- stop in for some lovely tacos. Serving breakfast and lunch style- they do fry the shells so be prepared for that. Burritos look great and the price is right!!

Quick, tasty and cheap! Good-sized breakfast burrito, hot & tasty and made right before your eyes. Top that off with the $5 price and you've got a winner! Definitely get some of the green sauce!

If you're looking for a great lunch on the run, this is it. Like a fast food restaurant, you place your order at the counter, but this is anything but fast food. The fish tacos were delicious and the refried beans were also very good. My husband ordered a beef burrito that was huge and also delicious.

Breakfast burrito was delicious, but the fish tacos were even better. Had a delicious dill-crema sauce that was very unique and delicious.

I was a bit sketched out at first because it was empty but beef tacos and nachos were delicious! Great for a quick and inexpensive meal. The only negative was they no longer serve some items on the menu. The egg and potato breakfast burrito was just okay - didn't think it stood out as others stated.

I've eaten here several times after I needed a break from the standard restaurant fare nearby. Chopped lettuce and sauce seem to be the standard topping for the dishes here. Nothing to write home about-just something different...

Just ate there we got carne asana tacos and fish tacos. The fish was fried and was so battered it could have been anything inside of the batter, that's all you could taste. The sauce tasted like tartar sauce just not good. The carne Asada was dry tough and tasteless.

Not fancy, but the food was amazing. Right on cannery row in the middle of everything touristy, a hidden gem.

We always eat at Papa Chavos our last night in Monterey. Great authentic Mexican food and reasonable prices. Good for take out or eating there. Tostadas are not on the menu so ask for "salad", it will continue me with shredded beef.

Thank Live4Maine
