Made fresh to order and hot! The biggest burritos around and very inexpensive. Ty their guacamole too (they come smothered on the taquitos!). Chips and pick de gallo are also very tasty :). Definitely a fast food joint, but one worth stopping at!

I used to work near here. Love this location! Relleno burrito wet with green sauce & tostada guacamole are my go to choices.

Probably one of the most underrated Mexican places in Placentia / Fullerton. The Cali Burrito is not on the menu, but it is a secret item (it has Carne Asada, Fries, Sour Cream, Cheese, and Guacamole). Freakin' awesome! The Breakfast Burrito as a platter with beans and rice is hands down one of the best I have ever had! Give... More

Bring sufficient cash since credit cards are not accepted in this hole in the wall restaurant. Parking was not difficult on this Monday during lunch. We wanted to eat in the restaurant instead of going through the drive thru. However, inside seating was full. The interior was small and had no atmosphere. Bring a jacket in case you need to...

I ordered a combo burrito with asada, beans and cheese. It was tasty and delicious. It is a very large size however, so come hungry to this place. The salsas are a bit on the hot side for my taste, but overall the burrito was great.

This place is a small drive thru with a couple of tables inside if you prefer to eat inside. For what you get, Pepe's is pretty inexpensive. All the Mexican food is great. I'm a sucker for a bean and cheese burrito with red hot sauce. Just one. Pro tip: a small order of fries is more than enough for... More

Just went through the drive through as my daughter had to go to McDonald's next door. Plates were all $7.95. Food was very good. Would go again when in the area.

Although I live nearby, I hadn't tried this until I saw other reviews. Boy, what a treat I have been missing. The Carnitas burrito is awesome and is hefty! (Please tell me all of that weight is not going to my hips!) :) A new local favorite. I've already returned and will again and again and ....

I love the food here. Usually get something for breakfast or lunch from here at least once a week or more. While I haven't tried everything, I'd rate their shredded beef tacos, carnitias burrito and Chile rellenos tops! Their rice is mild, but very favorable. If you order a combo plate, taco chips and a glob of guacamole are included.... More
