We were in Dunnellon for their monthly First Saturday Market which is a monthly event for my family. We try a different restaurant every time we visit. This month we tried Don Pepe Mexican Restaurant because it is right on the main street where the First Saturday Market is held. We got in right when they opened and had our... More

When you arrive and see locals waiting on the porch for open tables, you know we like the food here. Relaxing and talking with others while waiting is the way Southerners were raised. We visit here regularly. Usually had excellent service and always had excellent food for low prices. I don't know when "dukie 74" visited, but I encourage him... More

I have to wonder if the owner is reading these reviews ...The service continues to get worse We have not been back for some time due the lousy and slow service.Would it be too much to check on your customers at least one time? The servers do not look happy, do the minimum, and leave a lasting bad impression. This... More

This is a small family owned place where the food is usually served pronto and the servings are generous. One time when we went there with visiting guests during bad weather, the family was not very glad to see us. However, the food is always good!

We have been to this restaurant many times and are never disappointed. The food is always good and the service is the same. Will continue to take friends and family there at every opportunity.

Located in an old house, it's a casual, comfortable atmosphere, complete with creaky floorboards and Mexicana trinkets everywhere. The chips are fresh and the salsa is tangy. I really enjoyed my steak quesadilla and my wife LOVED her spicy chicken fajitas. Maybe I caught them on the right day, because the service was excellent. Attentive, knowledgable, and genuinely caring. Looking... More

We eat here 2-3 times per month...we actually just got back. It is always the same pattern...really great food at a reasonable price and absolutely horrible service. Service here means they bring your food and you have to chase them down for your check. Tonight the waiter never came back to ask how things were or for drink refills. I... More

We tried this place on a recent visit to Dunnellon. We waited and waited for the girl behind the counter to take our name for a table and finally she just handed use a tablet to do it ourselves. She might go online and search for a personality because she didn't have one. We waited and waited with tables open... More

You get a very large serving for very reasonable price, especially on the lunch menu. My favorite is the Steak Fajita Taco Salad...filled with well-seasoned, tasty beef, diced tomatoes, cheese, guacamole,sour cream in a taco shell. Also available in a chicken version but I prefer the beef. Definitely authentic Mexican food here! Have NEVER been disappointed in the food when... More
