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

Just a standard taco shop. Close to beach which is nice. I ordered one Chicken taco and one shredded beef. The shredded beef is better. Rice and beans okay. Horchata was really good.

Swung by here and grabbed two taco sliders. Food was hot/tasty and will definitely return when back in the area!

Pepe's is a classic taco burrito place with a long heritage. Pepe worked at the old La Perla Market in downtown Oxnard in the late 60's and learned his craft there. His carne asasa with rice and a scattering of onions and cilantro is classic fare. Try a classic carnitas taco and enjoy the melding of the fresh ingredients with... More

This place offers decent burritos, but bottom line is it's overrated by people in the beach communities who dont venture off in to other parts of town. if you are hanging out on the beach amd want a burrito, sure check it out, but not worth driving there just for the food
