Appeared to be full of locals...Surely there is no greater compliment! The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The surroundings are very basic cafe style but that didn't bother us. Would absolutely recommend Perlitas.

Food was good, but their service was great. It was a busy place and at one point had a line out the door. Might be the best place to eat in Crescent City.

This place doesn't look like the food would be as good as it is. We've only eaten here once but plan on going back. My hubby had carne asada tacos and they were very good. The pico de gallo was fresh and flavorful. The service was excellent as well. Were looking forward to another trip here and I'm trying the... More

This place was recommended and did not disappoint. We got fish and chips, quesadillas, burritos, sopes and lots of chips and salsa. The staff was awesome. We will go back when we return.

Stopped by for lunch on a tuesday...the place was packed so it was a good sign. We were started of with fresh tortilla chips and home made horchadas. A few minutes later we had our food...not heat lamp food. Fresh haruache with A1 Carne Asada steak. Tortillas to die for... the salsa in a maple syrup jug was a nice... More

After reading the somewhat mixed reviews for the seafood places in Crescent City, we decided to go with the more consistently rated Perlita's Mexican food. I had the tamale/tostada plate and the wife had one of their monster sized burritos. I can say that they did a decent job and are run by people who know the food. Of course,... More

Good food, good service. Margaritas are stiff. Prices are fair in comparison to some others. I would go back.

Had dinner with my wife and it was great. The real deal had the hard tacos and we're great. My wife of course had fish tacos and loved them. Also very quick and attentive service at a great price. Would definitely recommend

Went for dinner and enjoyed everything. Chips with salsa and guacamole. Wife had enchiladas and I had the chicken burrito supreme. Awesome. Some of the very best Mexican food I have ever had. A couple of cold beers and I was all set. They have a lot of choices on the menu and a lot of choices for beer and... More

A little Mexican restaurant we found driving up 101 from San Jose to Oregon. Food was great and service was good and fast. It was a nice lunch stop after a long morning of driving.
