Great Inexpensive Lunch in Hole in the Wall Restaurant

Bring sufficient cash since credit cards are not accepted in this hole in the wall restaurant. Parking was not difficult on this Monday during lunch. We wanted to eat in the restaurant instead of going through the drive thru. However, inside seating was full. The interior was small and had no... read more

Probably one of the most underrated Mexican places in Placentia / Fullerton. The Cali Burrito is not on the menu, but it is a secret item (it has Carne Asada, Fries, Sour Cream, Cheese, and Guacamole). Freakin' awesome! The Breakfast Burrito as a platter with beans and rice is hands down one of the best I have ever had! Give... More

I ordered a combo burrito with asada, beans and cheese. It was tasty and delicious. It is a very large size however, so come hungry to this place. The salsas are a bit on the hot side for my taste, but overall the burrito was great.

This place is a small drive thru with a couple of tables inside if you prefer to eat inside. For what you get, Pepe's is pretty inexpensive. All the Mexican food is great. I'm a sucker for a bean and cheese burrito with red hot sauce. Just one. Pro tip: a small order of fries is more than enough for... More

Just went through the drive through as my daughter had to go to McDonald's next door. Plates were all $7.95. Food was very good. Would go again when in the area.

Although I live nearby, I hadn't tried this until I saw other reviews. Boy, what a treat I have been missing. The Carnitas burrito is awesome and is hefty! (Please tell me all of that weight is not going to my hips!) :) A new local favorite. I've already returned and will again and again and ....

I love the food here. Usually get something for breakfast or lunch from here at least once a week or more. While I haven't tried everything, I'd rate their shredded beef tacos, carnitias burrito and Chile rellenos tops! Their rice is mild, but very favorable. If you order a combo plate, taco chips and a glob of guacamole are included.... More

The carne asada all meat burrito is the best I've had, it was fresh and flavorful.. The breakfast burrito is not bad. The hot sauce is pretty good. The drive-thru is not a good idea unless you have been inside and tried a few things before. It is hard to understand and see the menu board. I will keep going... More

This place is horrible! I read a ton of positive reviews on another review site and thought I'd give this place a try. I went to the drive-thru and ordered some chicken taco's. First off, the menu board on the drive-thru was pathetic, it's not clear or well lit at all. It's just a long list of items, I'm talking... More

A fast food with awful food and no atmosphere Places like this make you change your opinion about Mexican food. Just go somewhere else.
