Small, quaint, and always packed. Have never had a meal less than outstanding. They allow my dog in their outside seating and provide a water bowl in the waiting area for dogs. Everyone is very freindly.

Small, casual cafe with inside and patio dining. Service was great, cup of clam chowder was excellent, but would not order the grilled fish taco again. Next time it will be a bowl of chowder only, it was so delicious.

We have been meaning to try Zorros for some time and so glad we did. I recently read an article which reviewed clam chowder from many of the Five Cities and Zorros came in first! It might sound strange to go to a Mexican restaurant...More

While staying in Pismo Beach, we wanted to go out to a place with some "local flavor" (not a chain) and this place had good reviews. Don't judge by the outside - it doesn't look like much and its at the corner of a residential...More
