We discovered this little place while walking towards the beach and gave it try. The food was excellent. My kids had the carne asada tacos which, according to my son, was a "ten finger licking good". The fish tacos were fresh and the salsa was kicking. We loved it some much we went back for breakfast the next day and tried the chorizo and eggs. They were awesome. Everything was affordable and fresh. Service was friendly and quick.

First, I tried the Cracked Crab for dinner...great...the next day, went down to Pismo again for a quick bite for lunch...had read so-so reviews of Splash and indeed the line was long. A few doors down was El Mirador (and I love Mexican). This was real southern Cal Mexican, with a large menu and some great-looking dishes. I had a fish burrito that I took back to a cliff overlooking the ocean. Just terrific. The talapia plate looked fabulous when I was there...a whole fish, beans, rice and fixings. I would recommend based on my initial experience with El Mirado.
