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...

Don't fret aesthetics... This place is authentic! Friendly staff. Fast. Delicious. Tamales in banana leaves. Tacos on homemade tortillas. Mexican pastries. Yum!

Coming from AZ we did not expect authentic Mexican food this far from the boarder. The food is amazing and service with a smile. Pleasant music and great homemade guacamole. AWESOME!

What can I say? The food is awesome and they deliver! The staff is incredibly friendly as well. Try the salsa, white cheese dip, and guacamole- you won't be disappointed. What the restaurant lacks in ambiance, the friendliness of the staff makes up for. Try it- right now!

A very small and quaint place to dine. The staff is very friendly and the chips are amazing! The tacos are not too good, but the chicken quesidillas are tasty. The chicken enchiladas were good and was a large serving. Prices are reasonable and food comes out pretty fast and which it is still hot and fresh.
