The first time I had my usual: tacos al pastor. These were just not good. Dry and bland. The second time I tried the Chile Verde. Although the... More

This is my favorite Mexican Cuisine restaurant close to home. Happy hour tacos and Coronas from 4 to 6 pm. is the best value in town.

The food was delicious, definitely a favorite during our recent CA trip. If you are in Pismo, or just driving through, you should eat here.

Zorro's is a friendly, very laid-back casual restaurant that serves heaping portions of American and Mexican foods, including salads, flautas, camarones, and chile verde and chile Colorado plates. If you eat outside on the open air patio, you might feel like you're having dinner at a neighbor's place - a neighbor who thinks that he's being rude unless every inch... More

Not many options in Shell beach. However, Zorro's was outstanding and the patio was fun and lively. Live music with great food. Service was surprisingly wonderful and friendly. I would highly recommend this for a casual, great food eatery near Pismo.

Staff very friendly and efficient. Never a complaint about the quality of eats here. I always pig out on the chips and salsa before my meal comes. My out of town guests really enjoyed the meal.
