This was a great little Mexican dive we found off the interstate. Not the typical jarred-tasting sauces...everything was homemade and had an authentic taste. The salsa was my favorite part!! Great homemade corn tortillas for the tacos too!

I have eaten here before, and told my friend that it would be perfect for lunch since we both love Mexican. The chips were served along with our nachos, so the chips in both were fairly stale. We had to search for the meat in our pile of nachos. The guacamole was decent. Wish we had gone to one of... More

My wife read a review concerning Taqueria Don Pedro's so we decided to give it a try. The food was very good and our plates were loaded with more food than we could eat. Many people were getting carryouts which, to me, spoke well for favorability of the food. Prices were reasonable. We would give it another try!

We met up with family and had a great dinner. We each drove 2 hours fifteen minutes and it was so worth it. The staff were very friendly and helpful, thank you Lili! Everything we ordered was top notch, great flavor, and made to order, served hot. Portion sizes large and priced appropriately. Best we have had in a long... More

We had dinner last night at Don Pedro and were reminded again why this place is our regular spot for dining out. From the authenticity of the food to the freshness of the ingredients. Have had several things on the menu but my favorite is the zarape. Very family friendly environment and the staff is about a friendly as it... More

This little restaurant looks a little rough on the outside, but the interior and food are quite nice. Its run by a very nice family, and their service is good and friendly. The price is the same as most sit down places, but you definitely get what you pay for here.

I was just passing through town and tried this little Mexican place. It was clean and neat and the food was delicious! The chips were warm and fresh, the salsa was homemade, and my entree was excellent. I had the enchiladas with a variety of meats, and all were good. The toppings (the green sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and avocado)... More

This place is pretty much like every other Mexican place run by a Mexican family. The food is decent and made so that everyone will like it. You can't go wrong but you also can't remember what you had last time unless you always order the same thing. The choices are limited in the area so this is as good... More

This is the most delicious Mexican food I have ever ate! I try to get something different each time I go, and it is always spectacular! My go to favorite is their traditional chicken tacos, and I try not to stuff myself on the delicious chips and salsa and cheese dip first! Everything is homemade and FRESH, including their awesome...
