Don Pepe is the bomb

I've been going to this place since 1988. It has a salsa bar+ . If you like shrimp, I recommend Shrimp Botana. They give an unbelievable amount of shrimp and so tasty. I've tried just about everything on the menu and it was all great!

So I'm supposing the other thousand or so people present when I ate at Don Pepe's won't agree with me, but I thought their food was just okay. The fish taco I had was pretty good, but the taquito was nothing special and the beans were downright flavorless. I will say that they give you a lot of food for... More

The taco's at Don Pepe's are top of the line...the meat has a smoky, delectable taste to it. I've had carne asada, lengua, and shrimp tacos. The lengua tacos are bursting with tastiness, never dry, never greasy..same could be said about carne asada. It's true you pay like 2+ bucks a taco, but they are jam-packed, especially if you let...

I've been coming here for about ten years. Nothing has changed. You know what to expect and there's no disappointment. Food is good, I've never had anything bad. Salsa bar is fresh, service is fast. If you plan to dine in, seating can be tricky when it's busy. The shrimp botana is a favorite.

Don't judge a book by its cover, this place is great. The food was made to order and fast. I had to order 2 items since everything looked good. The shrimp cocktail was great. I also ordered the nachos. They looked not so good but tasted phenomenal. The best part of my meal was my michelada. It was HUGE and... More

From the outside you wouldn't know it, but what goes on within these walls is amazing. Everything I've tried has been exquisite. Micheladas come with fat shrimp, Carne asada, etc. Give it a try!

This is a small family restaurant style. When you walk in the restaurant and all you see is local people, you know that you are in the right place. I could not believe how fast they were serving and turning around the tables. I went to early dinner and the place was already packed. Had the shrimp cocktail and the... More

We went here, because of the reviews. When we went there it was really busy for a Sunday night, so we thought the food was going to be delicious. We took to go, be sure there wasn't enough sitting, or parking really. So, when we got home I had the super nachos with asada and my husband had the asada... More
