Very Good Mexican Food and reasonably priced

Excellent tacos and taco salad; good ratio of meat to vegetables, guacamole is some of the best ever; anytime you are in the area you will not be sorry if you drop in for some good Mexican food.

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!

We've eaten here several times and we've never been disappointed. It's a small local place and it can get pretty crowded at peak times, but it's worth the wait if you're in the area. The food is tasty and the prices are reasonable.

Whenever we travel through the Dunnellon area, we pass by this restaurant and it is always crowded. We had never been able to stop until recently. We were given our choice of seating and promptly presented with menu's by the cutest little girl. Our drink order was quickly taken. Salsa and chips were brought to the table. The chips were...

My friends came into visit from Miami and we had such a good time. The food the drinks was all great. Of course being from south Florida thought the price for all we had was the best ever. Grab your chips and salsa but leave room for the other goodies
