I asked what the difference was between the lunch menu veggie wrap and the Specials menu veggie wrap because the descriptions were the same but price was 1.50 more on Specials. Waiter said it was the size. Well what I got was a standard tortilla filled with crap so how could that size have varied? The filling was white rice, and those frozen packs of peas, carrots and corn, like you would get at the school cafeteria. It clearly was defrosted frozen "veggies" - terrible terrible terrible!

I've not written reviews before but this time I just have to comment on how awful the food was. I ordered fish tacos which was a fish stew served on undercooked tortilla with cheese. My husband ordered fajitas, the chicken was dry and vegetable overcooked. Taco Bell's version of Mexican food is more authentic than this.. Sorry Pedro but you need to improve your food. The location is beautiful potential is great but please work on the food..

I'm surprised this place doesn't have more reviews. This location and building is kind of strange but hey when it's happy hour who cares. Judging by their chips and salsa you can already tell that the Mexican food here will be pretty decent. I recommend the shredded beef enchiladas. The food and drink is at good prices. The service is mediocre but I didn't really expect for it to be outstanding. It seems as if the larger the party you're in, the more priority you'll have. To go along with the drink specials (weekdays 3-7), Pedro's offers a small complimentary buffet. It's definitely worth checking out. Don't be surprised if it's crowded when you go.

This is one of the best Mexican Restaurants in the whole Bay Area. The prices are reasonable and the service is great. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Very good food; very, very poor service. The worst service I have seen in a long time. At the Sunday buffet three times I had to ask the receptionist to have a server come behind the food counter to serve. Normally there was no server behind the counters. I had to holler for the busboy to send our waiter for coffee. I asked for clean flatware and was refused. We had to go to the receptionist to get the tab. I was someone's guest but if I had brought a guest I would have been embarrassed. We left zero tip. I will never return nor recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The layout was different from most restaurants. It looks like a mission. However, the food seemed very plain and over priced. The drinks were pretty good. I do agree that this place would make for a good happy hour. Not sure if we'll try it again for dinner, but we might go back for drinks.

I've searched high and low for another Happy Hour place to beat out Pedro's. I can find nothing better. Pedro's offers multiple patios with a wealth of seating, patient servers, margaritas that knock all but the most dedicated of lushes on their _ss, and free food at Happy Hour. What could be better? I never seem to part with too much cash for incredible margaritas and I walk away with great stories, a full belly, a nice buzz, and awesome memories. Thank you Pedros. Don't order food.

Pros: margaritas, free food at happy hour, big patio, service,

Cons: some say the food is inedible. just go for happy hour.

I loved their grilled vegetables. We met with our friends here and it was a lot of fun. There is lots of room for people and its also kid friendly. Service is good too.

I am a HUGE fan of chile colorado and Pedro's makes a great one served with rice, beans and corn tortillas. The lunch plate is big enough to share, especially after enjoying their great, spicy salsa and chips.

I went on a Friday afternoon and the parking lot was packed, but was seated within a couple minutes, so don't be discouraged.

We had a group of 20 here for dinner. The service was fabulous and the food was great. I would definitely recommend it for any group meal.

We just moved to San Francisco, and saw Pedro's on the way to Great America one weekday afternoon. We stopped by after leaving the park for some drinks. WOW. We stumbled into what turned out to be the best Happy Hour ever. Lots of great complimentary food at the bar, half price drinks, kick-ass salsa. Best of all, it's a nice, attractive, spacious environment. I have no problem driving 45 miles after work for Happy Hour at Pedros. I'm not sure if it's the food and drinks, or the parking lot that I like better (I guess you have to live in the city to appreciate a "real" parking lot).

Imagine the food at a typical chain restaurant--delete from your mind the kids yelling about balloons and that horrible birthday song they perpetrate on everyone--and add lots of margarita-swilling 20- and…
