Walk up to the window and order - this is NOT fast food...it's well prepared and tasty Mexican/American food. Prices are great and the value is outstanding. Don't let the outside appearance put you off - all the local know better!

Every year for ten years we have been eating fish taco's at Pedro's. It's always our first stop when we get into San Clemente from AZ.

Love the fish tacos. They are definitely the speciality but the California burritos, breakfast burritos and quesadillas are solid choices as well.

This restaurant is quick and has a drive through. It's good Mexican food with all the usual food options- tacos, burritos, rolled tacos, and even breakfast burritos.

Try the 3 rolled tacos smothered in guacamole and cheese. It's a winner. Everything is pretty good, fast and inexpensive. Walk up window or drive thru. Good jalapeño hot sauce in packets to go.

Great inexpensive mexican food. This is a local favorite. They have a funky drive up window to order food. Make sure your car is not hanging out in the driveway as you order. There is a a walk up window as well.

Walk up to the window, place your order from the surfboard menu, get your food (definitely get some guacamole), then walk down to Del Mar and find a good place to sit and eat. Consistently good food.

No it isn't on the beach... Or the pier, but Pedro's is synonymous with San Clemente and surf! There is nothing like grabbing a breakfast burrito and heading down to the beach. We called ahead a day or two and they had our order for 25 waiting to pick up at 7am! Would love if they'd include bacon as a... More
