Great food for a great price

We go to Pepe's pretty often and have never had a bad experience. Its always the same guys running the place so they know who we are which is nice. The food, drinks, atmosphere and waitstaff are excellent. I highly recommend Pepe's.

It's always a pleasant experience at Pepe's. The service is always wonderful, friendly & helpful. The food is very tasty. There is a wide variety of entrees to choose from. I have never been disappointed. The price point is also excellent. There is even a little outdoor dining section. They cater to kids, also. Chips and salsa are complimentary.

Been coming to Batavia Pepe's all my life and they have the best food and customer service. Sometimes they mess up but that's part of the restaurant life. Not everyone can be perfect. Tuesday's & Thursday's is half of margaritas and can get very busy. This Pepe's lets you have unlimited free chips and salsa. I have had about almost... More

The refried beans are made with lard. The enchilada sauce is made with meat stock. As a vegetarian I was limited to salad or a cheese quesadilla. The chips and salsa are very good. The waiter made me a fresh lime juice margarita by request and it was outstanding.

We always enjoy going to Pepe's. They always provide excellent service and if you go on a half price margarita night be careful of how much you drink because they definately give you a powerful drink! The food is good too

I've had some bad meals in my day but this could be the worst. The food was simply terrible, ingredients from who knows where. The service was almost non-existent as well. My waiter only stopped at my table to drop off the check. The only reason the patrons must come here is for the drink specials. Otherwise, this is a... More

We've been coming to this restaurant for years - and have watched the staff age with us.... The same servers are there providing the same excellent service for many years. They're very accommodating. The food is excellent - and a very good value. Wonderful local family restaurant.

The staff is definitely not friendly and the food is awful. Not much more to say about this place.
