Good food, good service

The food at this place is fresh and very good. I did get celery in my shrimp enchiladas and that was weird. Other than that, the food is always A+

An older place with the exterior not giving any indication of the great food, service and price on the inside. Meals were hot and delivered quickly and when we had an issue with something it was dealt with immediately. Portions are large so go hungry and its easy to find - recommended for families as there is plenty of room

I had the chicken caesar salad on my first visit & the steak quesadilla on my second visit & both were great! The wait staff was good & I couldn't have been happier with the small town restaurant.

There was a larger group of us, 8 total, including two 3 year olds and an infant. They chose to sit us at a 6 chair table, in the center of the entire room! (There was an 8 chair table in the corner) The food was good and service wasn't decent. It's nothing fancy but I would recommend it!

Ate there 11/7. We were seated immediately and a drink order was taken. Chips and two kinds of salsa were quickly served. Both were different from most I've had. My son loved the green salsa but I was not crazy about either. Ordered a taco salad which was pretty average. Son had fajitas which he liked. Wife had a special... More

Who would have guessed that the snapper would be so fantastic? It was hands down the best fish I've had... EVER. The appetizers are great. Only one complaint, it closes too early. 😀

Good place to stop in for lunch. The value (on lunch menu) is unbelievable. Pep's food is authentic style Mexican food and they have great choices on the kids menu. Our favorites are the tacos al carbon (fajita taco) with quacamole. They also serve free chips and 2 styles of salsa the minute you pull your chair up to the... More

We think it is ordinary but our friends love it. Typical tex-mex at mid range prices. They do have cold beer and some of the wait staff is friendly. I think our friends really like the senior plates.
