We eat here regularly and have for years. The food and the service are both good--and the prices are great. I love the stuffed avocado! Their table salsas and chips are also very tasty. Their happy hour drink specials are also a great deal. This is our go-to Mexican restaurant in Aransas Pass.

This place is awesome. Food is always fresh and salsa is delish!!!! Green or red. enchiladas are good as is fajitas. They offer a dinner that is supposed to feed 2 but feeds at least 3 and if you add an extra skewer of grilled shrimp, there are leftovers for the next day. It is called paradilla and has shrimp,...

I went to lunch here with a group of ladies and there were several other large parties so the service was a little slow but understandably. Even so the waitstaff was attentive. I had the senior plate (one taco, one enchilada plus rice and beans). Very good and a bargain at $5.25. I'm vegetarian and they willingly subbed a bean... More

The food seemed good, however I didn't personally care for the salsa. We stopped there late in the afternoon on a Saturday, and there seemed to be a steady stream of patrons coming in to eat which is always a good sign. I just wish the Mexican resaurants in this area would take better care of there establishments, such as... More

On a vacation recent trip to Padre Island Texas, we had the pleasure of taking our friends out for real Mexican food. Pricing was very reasonable, food was excellent. I am glad they suggested we go to their favorite Mexican restaurant. I love Mexican food and we just about gave up on it in South East Texas until we ate... More

The food is always very good and they also have excellent service. I like all Mexican food restaurants, but this is my favorite in this area.

I have eaten here with family and friends at least 3x. Quanity and quality are always the best and never changes. Tried the onion ring appetizer which comes with chili co - queso and pico de guallo( oooh lala ). Prices are competitive. There is one change they can make and it involves the men's restroom. When you use the... More

Having lived here for 12 years, I must say that Pepitos is the best Mexican restaurant offered in AP, but only because the others are so much worse. I've never had hair in my food or had to get up and walk out of here because I hadn't been acknowledged for 20 minutes. Having said that, the food can be... More
