Good Enchiladas

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... read 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

This is an old converted house on Hwy 35 which serves great enchiladas. I recommend the bargain lunch specials.

We have been driving by this establishment for 5 years and never stopped. Someone told us it wasn't any good. THEY MUST NOT KNOW GOOD MEXICAN CUISINE. It is hands down the best in this area hands down. The chips are good but they have a green sauce dip that's very good and the salsa is just right. I ordered... More

Do the Portabella Sauce Enchiladas!!! Fabulously creamy, garlicky, cheesy...what's not to like? Nice fresh side salad and rice with the lunch special, and HUGE mugs of ice water. You'll need it for the green sauce, which is very tasty if a bit on the calliente side. Good place for lunch!
