“Good food and atmosphere for moderate price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We've eaten at Pepe's a number of times over the years, and they always do a pretty good and consistent meal. My suggestion would be to stick with the standards, though. I had the "blended crab tostada" at our last visit, and it wasn't very good - big chunks of the rubbery fish/crab were unappetizing. Most of the others in our group were quite satisfied though, and I enjoyed their salsa with our chips.

“"It's a Pepe's night"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Rarely does a week go by without it being "A Pepe's night." We love the food and feel like family there (but of course when you go as often as we do, they almost know what we want to order!). The food is consistently good and we usually order ala carte, because by the time you go through the yummy chips and salsa, you really don't need much more. Can be noisy on a weekend night, but during the week is more doable (for us). I would recommend Pepe's in a New York Minute!

“Guacamole and margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Those are the best things to order at Pepes. Their food is pretty classic, standard Mexican fare, but have great guacamole. And if you want a great margarita, splurge and get the Cadillac margarita.

“Nice food - slow service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

HUUUGE portions - we could have shared the fajita dish between three almost. Flavours were good and prices fair. The slowness of service has to come into the equation though. With more staff, the experience could have been better.

“Good food , great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We had dinner at Pepe's at the recommendation from the hotel we were staying in. The food was good and the prices were reasonable. The regular salsa was too mild and hot salsa was too hot so we mixed them together and it was perfect.
