If you’ve been to Pismo Beach, you know that there’s an abundance of restaurants to choose from lined up and down the street.
So, how do you choose???
Our first prerequisite is that the restaurant is truly local to the area. A place we aren’t going to be able to experience anywhere else but here. Secondly, it has to be family friendly. I want to dine at an eatery where I can feel comfortable letting my kids be kids!
Papi’s Grill fits both of these criteria. (Queue the applause.)
Papi’s Grill serves quick and tasty Mexican food from chef Rosendo Perez. It’s located at the corner of Wadsworth Avenue and Price Street. It’s a great place to people watch and there’s seating that faces you straight to the street. Who doesn’t like that? Put on a pair of sunnies and enjoy observing all the tourists while munching on great food.
A peek inside of Chef Rosendo’s kitchen and you’ll be amazed by how such a small space can accommodate all of the dishes they serve. “It’s like a ballet,” he explains. And I can see why. When one person goes here, the other goes there. Watching them work is like seeing a choreographed movement of sorts.
Onto the food! We just had to try the chorizo fries. It’s a popular item at Papi’s. Fries and chorizo covered in cheese and chipotle sauce topped with fresh green onions. It’s as good as it looks.
We also had the fish and veggie tacos.
And the potato and butter beef tacos.
The corn tortillas are handmade…even our pickiest eater enjoyed her yummy quesadilla.
And we can’t forget the guacamole! I think Lukas ate 2 containers of it. Here’s a picture of him sharing with me.
One last thing- they have free Wi-Fi. What else could you possibly need?
Thank you, Papi’s Grill, for hosting our family. You are definitely on our list the next time we’re back at Pismo Beach!
