Ranked #12 of 38 Restaurants in Rio Grande
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Reservations, Late Night
Description: Authentic Puerto Rican & Cuban Food. Many people write about it in their reviews of the Rio Mar in Rio Grande, PR. I would love to write a review about this place as it was the best Mofungo (fried mashed plantains) we had in PR (and we tried it in 4 restaurants).

My husband and I ordered some appetizers to go on Monday night and then came back and had dinner there last night. OMG. The food was amazing. I had the chuleta frita with rice and beans and my husband had the crab mofongo. We had the flan de queso for dessert. We were both floored at how good it was.... More

This was our second visit and enjoyed it as much as the first. They provided live music which was an awesome plus. The food was delicious. My son lived the quesadilla, I enjoyed my chicharrones de pollo, my husband and daughter loved the arroz con pollo. Overall, we had another great experience.

This restaurant looks like nothing from the outside, but very quaint and well decorated on the inside. The food was very good and the portions were very large. My margarita was one of the best I've ever had. This restaurant is very close to the Wyndham Grand Mar. The prices were very reasonable too.

This is a good restaurant that serves local cuisine as well as some Mexican and a couple of pasta dishes (in case the family wants a variety).

On the advice of our driver we visited Don Pepe's for breakfast. It was smaller than I expected and not well air conditioned. We wanted breakfast and even though it was after their breakfast time, they were able to accommodate us. Service was a bit slow, but friendly. The pancakes weren't as fluffy as I like them but the food... More

Hands down the best fajitas I've ever had! We're staying at the Wyndham & heard this was a nice little local place down the road. We got a $10 taxi at the lobby & headed down the road. Don Pepe's is tiny, but don't let that fool you! It is very clean and nice looking. The waitresses were extremely friendly.... More
