We had dinner here one night and the food was good. The place suffers somewhat form being smack bang on a busy road and while it does have a modest wooden deck with seating outside it's quite noisy. The service was fine too and the...More

When I saw the prices on Pepe’s website, I figured it must’ve been more of an upmarket-style Mexican restaurant to be able to justify charging so much for burritos & enchiladas. But no, it’s just a typical, average Mexican restaurant situated on a main road....More

This is a true mexican restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious but strangely, dishes don't come with sour cream or guacamole, they're extras. And the margaritas are fantasic. Unfortunately the lunch time service was, well, quite lacking. There was no service unless you grabbed someone...More

Not allowed to park in the car park although it’s 100 percent empty. Therefore the remainder of our 14 people party had to park in streets a long way from the restaurant. We should have been warned before we went. The male wait staff were...More

Est. June 2006 Tucked into the vibrant inner-city suburb of Newmarket we offer you a taste of Central America, with a real knack for drinks. Over time sampled a huge range of Mexican Beers and Tequila, to bring you one of Australia's largest ranges of Mexican beer and Tequilas. The owners of Pepes Newmarket have been serving quality Mexican food since opening Brisbane's first Mexican restaurant at Milton in 1972. We believe in serving quality food that not only tastes great but is good for you too. Using the finest ingredients, such as the best quality vegetables and premium lean meats, chicken and seafood. We use cholesterol-free pure canola oil. We never use chemical additives or MSG in our food because we care about the health of our family and yours. Pepe's Mexican is also available for private catering!
