I used to live in Santa Cruz, and if I am ever even within an inkling of a close enough distance I try to figure out how to get to Planet Fresh. Expect the unexpected and do not leave without trying all the fresh salsas. I could not decide between my two favorite burritos here- the chicken and artichoke heart,... More

Stopped by while passing through Santa Cruz. Great burritos and awesome homemade salsa. Highly recommended the Thai Chicken though everything was great.

A friend and I ate here yesteray and it was an all-round excellent experience. The service was friendly and quick and the burritos were generously sized and absolutely delicious. We both really appreciated the variety of salsas on offer too — if spicy is your thing, go for the habanero. If I'm ever back in Santa Cruz, I'd definitely hit... More

We were a family from the UK just stopping by on a road trip down pacific highway 1. This place was recommended to us by a local. We were not dissappointed. It is a casual dining place with a fantastic range of mexican food all made fresh with lots of personalised options. We have veggies in our group and had... More

A delicious burrito with a good selection of fillings and meat/fish options! The salsa bar also has a decent range of mild to hot options. I'd recommend halving a burrito unless you are almost starving. We were driving through Santa Cruz and this was much better than the options by the boardwalk. Plus close to Penny's ice creamery for dessert... More

Been going to this place for years. The food, service and prices are great for a quick casual Mexican meal. If you want a cocktail you may get one at the bar next door.

My husband and I eat here often. Because the burritos are so large, we purchase one and split it. It makes a nice, fresh meal for us without spending a lot of money. We like the salsa bar. Staff is friendly and service is fast.

If you like burritos this is the place. The service is fine and the sauces are great. I like it hot and you can get it as hot as you like.

Great little hole in the wall off the main drag. Pretty healthy eats. Salsa Bar is diverse and spicy. the menu is on the healthy side with good options for fillings, rice flavours, and tortillas. My only dislike is that with a corn allergy, the mixed veggies had corn in it and I had to pick the kernels out by... More
