Mexican food done right!

Pepe's for many may seem routine but it is always worth a try. Top notch Burrito Suizo is a good portion delivered hot. The chips and salsa are fine with attentive service thruout the meal.

I took the family to eat Mexican after my wife attended a daylong conference. We had chips, beans, rice, tacos, taco salad, quesadilla, enchilada, tamale, and tostada. Not one of these items were on par with other Mexican restaurants we have had in other states. The food was not disgusting, it was just not as good as what we have... More

Their beef tacos (I don't know how they season their meat) but I could make a meal, just on these ! The Carne Asada a la Tampiquena (appropriately described as Tender, juicy and flavorful broiled skirt stea topped with ranchera sauce) is A++++++++++. The Steak Fajitas are an absolute delight to behold. Perfectly paired with fresh veges and in the... More

My wife and I wanted a nice quiet mexican restaurant. Our dinners were absolutely fantastic. The only drawback was our waiter. He was a little slow. He was waiting on some of his friends and spent alot of time talking with them. I highly recommend Pepe's. The food is great and the prices very reasonable.

I ate at Pepe's after a very disappointing meal the night before, hoping to find some good Mexican food while on business. What I found was GREAT Mexican with great service. I ordered the carne asada with a chile relleno and both were amazing! The steak was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful. This has got to rank among my... More

We really enjoy the food at Pepe's, but the prices tend to be pretty high for what it is. There isn't much atmosphere, but you're going to go there for the food not the atmosphere. The guacamole is among my favorite from a restaurant and the salsa is great. I recommend the tamales.

Not your typical Pepe's. The experience in Rolling Meadows was disappointing as compared to what we thought we knew of the brand. My family and I are from the western suburbs and have been to and enjoyed other Pepe locations. I did like the restaurant decor - regrettably, that is all. There was nothing notable about the service. We ordered... More
