The enchiladas were excellent, the service good, good salsa. I just went there because it was next to my motel. Certainly superb. I was pleased

We had to wait a bit for a table but it was worth it. I always judge by the salsa and chips. The salsa and chips were amazing! Had some spice which is what I like. Margarita was great, everything was wonderful. parking is a pain but, worth it.

Decided to try Don Pico's on the last night of a long vacation. We were ready for something other than fancy restaurant meals. We were really in the mood for something that felt like home cooking (Although we're not Latin.) We couldn't have picked a better place. The atmosphere is kind of kitschy, as you might find someone else's kitchen.... More

One of our favorites for Mexican food. High quality and good portions in the dishes. Margaritas are well done. Service can be erratic, but was better on our last visit. Prices are affordable and restaurant is clean and attractive.

Most disappointing having read previous reviews. The food was tepid at best and lacking in taste. The salad dish that one of us ordered was ok.
