Stopped for lunch. The place was packed but we got seated right away. Inside was loud but expected for a small place with lots of tables. Outside dining is a bit more kicked back with heaters and sarapes to ward off a chill. Portions were huge and a little too filling for my taste but maybe I should have passed... More

If you are traveling with dog this the place to eat near Pismo Beach. They actually seem to cater to dogs and offer outside seating to help with a comfortable place for the pets to lay down. Water dishes are plentiful for the dogs as well. Oh, and I should mention the really good food, prompt service and friendly smiles... More

Everything I've had at Zorro's is great. I'm there when they open and it fills up quickly. It's a big breakfast so come hungry. The sausage is wonderful. Service is nice and casual.

Our hotel host recommend this place. At first we thought, can this really be a good restaurant? Once we got our meal we were convinced that it was. it's a homey place with seating both inside and out. Menus are provided and a waitress/waiter takes your order. It is a medium sized room, but clean and colorful. The food is... More

This is a small place and popular with the locals. I have visited twice and both times the food has been excellent. The patio would be nice in the summer. This will be my go to when I am in the area.
