We used to come here often. They now are cutting corners with little care for the finished product. Just finished lunch. Ordered cheeseburger with lettuce, onions, mayo and bacon, done medium. Burger came out rare, had tomato on it, two slivers of onion, microwaved precooked...bacon, and so little provolone that is wasn’t even visible - not even sure it was there!. Roll was cold and untoasted making for a sandwich that dissipated because it was so rare and there was no barrier for the juices to stay away from. So- halfway through there was no bread to pick it up. This same scenario happened last time when I ordered veal parm. Parmigiana was so over fried in fryer that the meat was cooked like bacon and inedible. Would not recommendMore

Local place, local people- ok grinders, heat must’ve not been working- heaters placed around dining room- not very busy - good wings, plenty of parking

Correct, heating system failed this winter. Brand new HVAC system had to be ordered and installed. Thank you..

The barkeep was super happy and a friendly soul. Awesome happy hour app discounts. Nice crispy wings. More wings than legs though. Very good hot sauce with just the right amount of heat and a nice tang. Good bleu cheese and just the right amount...of celery and carrots, which were very fresh. Excellent selection of draft beer. The only place I have found in CT with Carlsberg Pilsner. Although it was just a bit on the flat side. Nice lively locals crowd. Front lot fills up quick but there is more in the rear.More

I have always liked Pepe's. I was kind of disappointed tonight. I ordered the Hawaiian Burger. I was hoping for a grilled pineapple ring but it only contained about 10 pineapple bits. To be fair, the menu just said pineapple. The ham wasn't really warm...which cooled the cheese. I really wanted to like it but it fell short. The price wasn't bad and the service was good. It wasn't a complete failure.More

Thanks for you honest review. Indeed, the item in question did not meet expectations. The Aloha Burger was on an experimental menu, and fell short of the quality we were hoping for. Some of the other items fared much better, but this item has been...More

Pepe's Restaurant in Manchesters, CT has been serving the community for a long time. It is average at best. The food is decent but could be a lot better for the prices that they charge. I recently ordered a chicken Cesar salad and one glass...of sauvignon blanc . The bill was $17.95. The salad was not even mixed. I had to add the dressing from a small container. They do have a wait staff of friendly pretty young women that keeps the men of the area coming back. They have a pretty good selection of craft beers on tap.More

We were there for lunch today and were the first ones seated. After an hour and twenty minutes we still had no food. The server claimed it was a computer malfunction and they just realized it. Other tables were still waiting and the last table...to arrive already had their food. They new something was wrong because I heard her talking to another table, who walked out and a cook came out and talked to the table beside us. At that point no one had said anything to us yet. Finally, she tells us about the issue and said our food would be right out. The next table then received their food. We never saw a manager and she lied to us. This restaurant is joke. We left and I doubt the the management knows or even cares........More

Pepe's wings are incredible. I've had them about 10 times now and they never disappoint! I can't comment on the rest of the food bc I haven't tried much of it. Great beer selection too and awesome daily specials in the lounge. Worth a visit...for sure. Then another....and anotherMore

Whether you are looking for pizza, salads, sandwiches , or grinders, you will find what you are looking for here. We have had a few of the salads, pizza, wraps, and sandwiches are are always satisfied. The salads are large. Service can be slow in...the restaurant section on Friday and Saturdays. Not sure if more attention is given to the bar area during those times but the last three times there on those nights, there has only been one main waitress and all tables were full so we did not get refills on our drinks.More
