Very good Mexican food and service, really busy at lunch but you never regret to wait, for the volume the service was good and the food came hot and great in flavor.

We dropped off our son at school and headed over to this joint based on reviews. The staff was professional and attentive. I asked if they had some chile toreados even though it was off menu and they were quite happy to accommodate. My favorite beer in bottles 'Bohemia'. Nico's tacos were excellent. The corn tortillas were slightly fried and... More

It was very good lean chicken breast, guacamole- healthy. I prefer small unhealthy street tacos. The joint next door had better tacos a local told me. I agree

I travel to Harlingen monthly for work and I have eaten at Pepe's many times. Always busy, service always good and food is excellent. Nothing fancy just good Mexican food you can always count on the quality and flavor.

Pepe's has a relatively short menu compared to the other great Tex-Mex restaurants I've been to, but everything is very tasty, excellent quality, and priced very reasonably. My wife and I were impressed by the excellent quality of the beef, chicken and pork at such prices. The tortillas and frozen margaritas are among the best we've had, and the service... More

Food is amazing. I haven't been there for almost a decade (but I'm not given the option to select actual year) but I'm sure this place hasn't changed. I miss Harlingen and I long for Pepe's Botana for 2! Thanks for the great food!

My wife and I discovered this place while traveling from Harlingen Airport to South Padre Island a number of years ago, and liked it so much we try to work in a lunch here whenever we can. The food quality and taste are great, and the prices are remarkably low compared with Tex-Mex places in our home town of Houston.

We heard the rave reviews and were wanting to try this restaurant for some time! I do not understand why so much good Mexican food is ruined by being topped with American/processed cheese! If I were to go again I would ask for no cheese. Everything we ordered in our large group without cheese was tasty. Especially enjoyed the margaritas!... More

My husband and little girl and I went there a couple of weeks back. I ordered the grilled chicken with baked potato and had to return the plate four times . The waiter brought me a green baked potato and the chicken still had blood on it. Terrible service, horrible prices, and the food is gross!!!! this is one place... More
