Had the chicken enchiladas - nothing special, just good food. Attentive waiter, fast table turns. Salsa served with food was great - better than the enchiladas. I would return and try something different. We were tired and this was quick, hot and adequate.

Pepe's is our go-to as soon as we get home from vacation. They have the best waiters in town, the food comes quickly and never disappoints.

Really great value here. The prices are perfect. The service ranks with any 5 star restaurant. The restaurant is small and a little plain or this would be a 5. The Botana for two is an amazing dish and the best one I've had anywhere. All the food is cooked perfect and authentic. The Jalapeño soup is also worth mentioning.... More

After a full day of travel, my colleagues and I just needed a place to eat before we crashed at our hotel rooms. This place had decent food, but it was nothing to rave about. The first item to note is that, if you want chips and salsa as an appetizer, you will have to pay an extra $1.50. There... More

We've been eating at Pepe's Mexican Restaurant for more than 20 years, have tried other Mexican restaurants in town, and while they are good, I don't think any of them compare to Pepe's! I love their crispy tacos, Enchiladas Verdes, and Chili Rellenos. The waiters are always fast and courteous and some have been there for between 10 years to... More

After reading previous reviews, we decided to try out Pepe's and we were not disappointed. Very good food, authentic Mexican cuisine and atmosphere and very dedicated, professional and sincerely courteous staff makes a winning combination - and Pepe's has it. It made for a very enjoyable experience! Salsa was grand!

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
