My husband has been eating here when in town for business for 11 years. He drove in town for a visit and ate there. Now I understand why every steak he eats , he compares to this one. Fantastic. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was the best seafood I have ever had. Percy is my husband's waiter... More

It's a nice steak when you can cut it with a fork! Need I say more! Cooked with a wood grill not gas make a world of difference!! Always an amazing meal. Never hesitate to go on any occasion at all. One time had kids with me and they would not eat anything, so head waiter came to the table... More

We came here for an early dinner and it was decent. We had the mussels in garlic white wine sauce for an appetizer and sadly that was the big disappointment of the night! The mussels were huge, rubbery and Sandy!!! Moving on to the entrees I got the Surf and Turf and it was delicious, steamed tail with a petit... More

Extremely expensive fir the quality of food, i don't mind paying high price for good food, i ordered a whole fried red snapper, just horrible taste, the yellow rice is just flavorless and honestly gross me out, the waiter was very annoying, the dessert (flan) just not a real flan, don't waste your money.

Some people really like this place. I am not one of them. Was there for a business dinner in October 2016. Yes, chorizo was an appetizer. Not a big seller with this group. The entrees were chicken (which was dry and tasteless), a breaded fish (tilapia? oily!), and shrimp/pasta (shrimp overcooked). The bread was served cold and had no redeeming... More

But just as good! We have many great steakhouses in the DFW metroplex and this one matched in quality and service to several of them. The Don Pepe name brings thoughts of a Mexican restaurant and so does the building itself, but it is undoubtedly a steakhouse. I initially inquired about the filet size and was told 16 ounces! And...

Food was really good, but service was bad, granted we were early (5:30-6:00 and we were seated at a table near the separation of the 2 rooms) but the waiters were hanging out near the table and kept telling jokes amongst themselves and just talking. Our waiter was very uninterested in us, I had to stop him to ask for... More

Ate here for a business lunch. I ordered other things, but there is only one plate here that matters, and that is the chorizo. It was, without any doubts, the best chorizo I've ever had. I think I got sick off out it because I ate too much. Regardless of the taste, I was a bit surprised by the bill.... More

This place came recommended. Large volumes of tasteless food. Where to start - the wine was nice. Starter of calamari one could say was rubbery, but rubber has a taste. Other starter was supposed to be scallops stuffed with crab. Scallops were not stuffed and again were tasteless. Of the main courses - they were large but again tasteless. The... More

There just wasn't a whole lot to get excited about during our very recent experience at Don Pepe Steakhouse. Steaks not much 'better' than you get on your own grill - certainly missing that Premium Steakhouse taste that is a hallmark of a great steakhouse. Staff seemed mostly not interested and bored. The dining experience here was certainly not a... More
