Fantastic!!

Great food and great people!! If you want fantastic food at reasonable price, this is the place!! Lots of food good enough for a couple meals because you can't eat it all in one sitting. The difference between can and should. :)

I've been here several times, including lunch and dinner. My personal favorite is the cheese enchiladas. The beef fajitas are also a good choice.

They did give me the option of doing take out. So... I ordered a... More

After reading reviews my husband and a I decided we would drive down for a Mexican dinner. We arrived and it was busy. We were seated quickly, but waited for sometime before being greeted and asked for our drink preference. Once we got our drinks, it took forever to get our orders taken. Finally our main dishes arrived. Plentiful amounts,... More

This has to be the worst Mexican restaurant I have ever eaten at. The food was tasteless. I couldn't even eat it.

We ate at Don Pepe's for lunch today after a float down the river. It was fantastic! It is just like our favorite Mexican restaurant at home. The salsa is great! The queso is great! We tried enchiladas, tacos, tostadas, tamales... They were all wonderful! It is moderately priced and a great value for your money! A definite GO!

Went to Don Pepe's on a Friday evening. It got really busy while we were there, but service was still good and the food was great! They don't serve hard liquor, but they had a margarita made out of wine. It was fantastic! Tasted 'liquory' to me! I had the chicken chimi and it was really moist and tasty. The... More
