Have been coming here on and off for over 25 years whenever I am in Ft. Lauderdale on business or pleasure. The menu has been updated of course, and the portions still larger than average. The Prickly Pear Margarita was tasty. Had the Pepe's Crazy Burrito (Chicken), that was packed full of chicken - perhaps a bit too much, as... More

Interesting how the previous reviews are so extreme. I thought the food was average and the service was average. I had a grilled fish wrap which is like a burrito. The ingredients inside were all mushed together and rather bland. My husband had the grilled fish tacos. That was better but still kind of bland. Others in our group had... More

Really great food, nice chips and salsa that go great with one of their many margaritas. Highly recommend steak fajitas, chimichanga, or their salad in a burrito bowl! For dessert, fried ice cream is a must! So is the mud pie.

I always get the chicken or steak burrito (they have it on the menu as a wrap), and I love it. The salsa is very fresh and so delicious. For dessert, the flan is pretty good. I'll soon be a regular.

Chose Carlos and Pepes for dinner tonight. We are average every day people and this was by the far the worst Mexican we have ever had. Nothing was good in fact we left half of our meal on the table. Service was terrible and slow. You would be better off going to Chipotle across the street!

Visited for dinner. Slow service, food was just average, but prices way above average. Try somewhere else for a Mexican dinner.

The food was okay overpriced for the type of food. Drinks where good but 80.00 for two people is a bit much.

We had a great meal here. Portions were large and the food was tasty. Presentation was also attractive. The service was a bit slower than we were accustomed to, but friendly enough. I would eat here again on a return visit to FTL

First visit in Ft. Lauderdale and decided to have Mexican food instead of what the locals recommend, seafood; go figure. So, after reviewing TA we decided on Carlos & Pepe's. It was the right choice. We started with fresh homemade guacamole, and it is delicious. 4 adults shared and still couldn't eat the Large size. I chose the Taco and... More

The food was ok and way overpriced. I expected authentic mexican and was hugely disappointed. The food was just average nothing special. The service was not that great. The order was wrong and we asked for salsa which never came to the table. The servers all looked angry and didn't smile. Not a place I would return to.
