I don't eat meat. This restaurant has an amazing burrito called the Hawaiian Pipeline with pineapple, rice, black beans, and this spicy sour cream (not too spicy). They also serve nice margaritas and horchata!!! Usually can't find horchata on the east coast. Great find here.

While on a girl's weekend I stumbled on this place while my friends were busy. Per Yelp reviews I got the fish tacos, which are not normally my favorite. They were so good as was the margarita. I like that they use fresh squeezed lime...More

What a neat restaurant! The fish tacos are awesome. The burritos were great. We enjoyed the chips, guacamole, salsa and queso also. This restaurant was recommended to us by family and is off the beaten path on the north end of Virginia Beach. The décor...More

Such a warm welcome from Christian, he advised me on the meal selection. Second night I had shrimp tacos. My God! They were good, fresh, zingy and bursting with flavour. Wish I'd had seconds!

Our soy meat products our 40% higher than regular beef, chicken and cheese. The sour cream is not available in bulk like regular sour cream which creates a high food cost.

Pelon's Baja Grill specializes in fresh Mexican fare inspired by California Baja style preparations. When you walk in, we want you to close your eyes and feel the sand in your feet and smell the ocean in your nose. A Pelon's, we've taken the best slice of Cali and served it up in store. We've always taken the fresh approach to food, our veggies are green, our onions are potent and some customers report that our fish tacos are so fresh, that they've jumped out of the food, flopped around a little and then smacked them in the face. Enjoy your meal with guacamole and salsa that are made fresh daily. From tacos to tequilas, burritos and margarita's there's nothing quite like Pelon's. Fresh Baja Food. There's only one place to get it.
