Whenever we go to NYC, we always try to make it in to Tio Pepe. This Mexican restaurant in the Village makes the BEST Margaritas! The staff is so friendly, and the food is extremely good. The place is small, and the acoustics are problematic if there is a loud table - the sound just reverberates around the restaurant. But... More

This is my second time going to Tio Pepe's and I just love the freshness of their food. Their tamaron marguerita is to die for. Their guacamole is so fresh made right i front of you. We shared three appetizers all fabulous and shared two dinners. Everyone was happy with everything. The atmosphere is also very nice

Started out with the strawberry margaritas. They are frozen and strong! Than we shared Nacho's which when they came weren't what I expect but they were amazing. I had the chile rellano and it was the best I had ever eaten. It's my favorite dish so I was pleased. Everyone was satisfied with their meals. I'll definitely go again!

We had a late dinner and started with classic Margaritas. As appetizer we order the "guacamole show" prepared at our table. One of the best guacamole we tasted! Then we had After tasty golden chimichangas. Rich serving.

Arranged a dinner here for 10 and it exceeded expectations. The variety of the menu impressed my guests with the great mix of both Spanish and Mexican cuisine. Service was terrific and the value was amazing, especially for NYC!

First time in more than 20 years that we had dinner at Tio Pepe's - we always come for lunch when we're in NY. It wasn't like the old days with the strolling guitarist and the white table cloths but we still had a good time. Good food and good company always wins out.

Ate here with my cousins. We ended up sharing alot of appetizers. They were all pretty good and served quickly, but the portions are too small for what you pay. Service is outstanding.
