Love the tacos!

I get steak or shrimp. Sometimes i get the quacamole or pico de gallo. It is all delish and the value is great too. You can eat on the water across the street.

I have visited Pepes a handful of times and each visit was different from the last! The service and food tends to be inconsistent, although I see potential for the restaurant overall. Good strawberry margaritas!

This is a little taco stand in a beach community. You order at a window and pick up at a different window. There are a few bench/tables lining the curb, but it is what you would expect at a beach joint. Get the tacos. We had a large group and everyone that ordered tacos loved them; chicken, beef, carnitas and... More

Pepe's is a great place to eat some good Mexican food, it's a small place' but worth it for the quality of food you get. They are quick to your order no matter how busy they get. Its worth trying....

Love this place. Best TJ tacos around. Fresh products, cook to order, great sauces. For those who dig people watching, this is your place. It sits right across from the beach. Not for those looking to sit in a restaurant, it is at the beach. Plenty of bike and board parking, a couple street spots.

The food is good and the prices are too. Grab a quick taco and sit next to the bay. Great combo. I prefer getting a fish taco from here over Yolanda's.

Sit outside and eat a very large order. 1 block from the baby beach in Oxnard right at the harbor entrance. The food is avg. but the price is right and you will be full.

If you talk to the locals, they will tell you that as good as Pepes is now it was much much better 5 years ago, and that reputation is still carrying them. We heard about this spot from people who grew up at Channel Islands and had to try it since we were living in the neighborhood for a year.... More
