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

We went to Don Pepe for supper with family members. The salsa was awesome. Some people said it was a bit too spicy, but I loved it. I had great flavor, not too "tomatoey"...with a good bite. The chips were fresh and warm. I ordered the chili rellenos. They were good, but not the best I have ever had. Would... More

The worst so called "Mexican" food I have ever been served in my life. My guess is these folks are from Puerto Rico. I grew up eating Mexican food and this isn't even close. The guacamole looked and tasted like it came straight out of a "babies diaper". The "Fajita" meat was little tiny stripes and no favor. Probably came... More

Not my first trip to Don Pepe. The first time, I was ignored. Not a good way to get people to return to your business, but I gave them a second chance. The guacamole was watered down, the pico had no cilantro, and the beef from the "fajitas" tasted like it came from the Chinese buffet. There isn't anything that... More

Stopped for lunch and found a simple, no fuss nice atmosphere Mexican restaurant. The staff friendly and efficient. Huge single serving of the best fajitas I have had, with all the usual sides (would have been enough for 2) and very reasonably priced. We'll definitely visit again.

My husband and I became acquainted with Don Pepe Mexican Restaurant a few years ago. I love Mexican food and it was a real treat to find this gem in a "small" town. All meals start out with chips and homemade salsa, which is very good. There is a large menu and has many "combo" dishes available. The everyday specials... More
