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.

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

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...
