In the mood for a good margarita and was referred here by a hotel desk clerk. Was not disappointed. Very good margaritas. Warm chips and a very good salsa. Peppers fajitas were excellent! I will definitely return next time in town. A great place for...TexMex.More

Looking for a casual, friendly Mexican restaurant with great tasting food, well this is it. This was our first visit, but Sergio made it feel like we were an everyday regular. Saddling up to a high top table in the bar area was the right...choice for us. We ordered burrito’s that were not only very large but also wonderfully seasoned. We are only here for the week but we will make a return to Don Pepper’s before we head home.More

I have enjoyed “Don’s” Shrimp Fajitas on my last two visits. I substituted the refried beans with their Black Beans and it was a choice well made. The Fajitas were nicely seared both the Shrimp (not over cooked but perfection) and especially the onions and...peppers which gave much more flavor than you find in other “mexican” restaurants. My frozen Texas Margarita was also very satisfying. When I need a “Mexican fix” Don Pepper’s is my choice at the beach!More

My wife and I eat here each time we travel to Daytona Beach. We haven't been disappointed yet. We decided to try something different this time and again no disappointment. I had the wet Burrito which came with 2 sauces over the top. It was...like eating 2 meals in one. My wife had the pork with Tomatillo salsa and it was excellent also. We will be back to this place again when we return to DB.More

Stopped for a quick lunch. We had the lunch special of a taco, enchilada and beans. One had crispy beef taco with chicken enchilada and one crispy chicken taco and chicken enchilada. The taco shells were stale and chewy. The enchiladas were just ok. The...retried beans were very runny. Chips and salsa was very good. Service was fast and good. Very poor quality food. Would not go back.More

Couples and Family hit this place on a Sunday brunch and we were not disappointed. The food was hot and fresh. Delicious steak fajitas. Delicious street tacos. This venue has very, very great service and very reasonable prices for the proportions that you are served.

So i saw that they had a 4.5 rating and thought i would give it a try i got the queso fundido with chorizo which tasted and shaped like ground beef they seasoned that wasn't hot. then i also ordered the carna asada which wasn't...cut up and was a small portion once again cold if i was dining in i would have sent it all back and walked out. The restaurant might of had very few guest when i walk in and i walked in at 8pm when my food was quoted to be ready at 8:02 and was stay less then a mile away. had to ask for tortilla for the queso fundido and didn't get any cutlery to eat my food withMore
