Ola and Good

Best Mexican around. Food is reasonable and large servings. The atmosphere is Mexican. We have eaten here a few times and never been disappointed. Sometimes busy for dinner hours.

We have been there several times but it seems they change cooks. Sometimes the food is excellent and sometimes not so great.

Authentic Mexican food in the heart of Dunellen. The Fajitas are the best. Nice little place of the beaten path.

This used to be one of our favorite places to eat. We come here every summer and rent a condo, spending a month. The service is poor, and the servers not accommodating in the least. The food used to be so good-not anymore. On our last visit, everything that we ordered was sitting in grease, and was cold. The time... More

Awful. Will never eat there again and I am a local. The chips and salsa were good but I could not eat my dinner It tasted freezer burned It had a slab of processed cheese over the burrito that was not even melted I told the hostess she just looked at me with no comment but took my money.

Situated in an old house, this place does not disappoint. You know that Don Pepe's is good the before you even go inside. There are at least 15 or so chairs around the porch for those waiting in line for a chance to get in. The tortilla chips are always warm and the salsa is always fresh. While the salsa... More
