Tio Pepe is the type of place you don't necessarily pick if it's not suggested by someone else, but should never be your go-to for Mexican/Spanish food. So lesson one, make your own choice. Tio, it has a very touristy feel and lacks that "something special" to set it apart in a city with a million other options. The salsa... More

I can't seem to find my previous review of this restaurant but the review was spectacular. Unfortunately things change; our last two visits were horrible on all fronts except for sitting at the open to the street tables and just watching life go by. The menu has changed dramatically since my last review. The change was not for the better;... More

We ordered the Quesadillas Nortenas as appetizers, the Entrecot a la Parrilla for the adults (2) and Pollo al Ajillo for the kid. The quesadillas were fine, just that. The entrecots were indeed delicious, well cooked and quite tasty, accompanied by a nice mix of vegetables (broccoli, carrots and something else) and potato with cheese. On the other hand, service...

This is my 3rd time going to Tio Pepe's. 1st time was great, 2nd time was disappointing and this time even worst. The food is bland the service wasnt good and the menu is over priced for no reason. They are very limited to their menu which doesn't give you a great selection of food. Small steak is 36 bucks,... More

Went there this week with a group of friends celebrating an event, recommended by one of my friends. While the food was fairly good, the following were very annoying: - Even as they advertise a "paella fiesta for $18.-" on their website (still there today), we were informed that they had not served for months (isn't that false advertising??). Anyway... More

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.
