Surprised

My wife and I happened in on this place during an over night in the area. We almost didn't go in from the exterior appearance, looks like a run down beat up mom n pop place but she was craving Mexican so we tried it. Much to our surprise the inside was packed and very nice. Even more, you... read more

I decided to have dinner at Pepe's. close to the hotel. Atmosphere is fine, however the fajita I ordered was undercooked. Seemed like the restaurant was in a hurry to get me the food. However, the meal seemed undercooked compared to other places where I ordered a fajita. Maybe other dishes are better, but I would not visit again for... More

Pleasant enough waiter - if you like large Mexican men. Good value for money in purely a calorie/$ kind of way. Atmosphere probably authentic. Probability of severe indigestion - high. Likelihood of return (ever) - minimal.

I had read some reviews on this restaurant and was not sure what to expect. Great food, atmosphere, and service! It was a week night and we were surprised about the size of the crowd. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the food was fast and excellent.

This place was voted best Mexican food in San Luis Obispo county many times over in the 90s. I haven't been here for dinner in years so I thought we would go again and have things changed. The service was good but the food wasn't. I had a taco, enchilada and chile relleno and my girlfriend had a tamale and... More

We ate at Pepe Delgados back in the 90s but quit when the food and service both went sour. We decided to give it a try after more than 15 years. Unfortunately it was worse. I had Machahca, it was unlike any Machaca I have ever had. It was as though they had taken some shredded beef from water and... More

Been going to Pepe's since I was a kid! No kidding they have been around that long...lol. I moved to Portland over 15 years ago, but every time I come home to visit, I have to eat here. You will be treated like family and there is no way you will not be full when you leave! My favorite has... More

I have had better Mexican though. But, a great place very Mexican, food tastes average, can be crowded, tourists and visitors who stay in the inn's nearby. But, has an excellent staff and hosts, waiting time can be little longer too. The price is not justified for the taste for the food although the quantity and potions are good. I... More
