Ate here for lunch and it was crowded but the wait was short. Awesome service! The chips are homemade and great! The salsa was great! I ordered the steak tacos. What great flavor in the steak! Do yourself a favor and go!

This place had great food. My husband and I shared a 2 burrito plate. Service was very friendly, we were seated quickly, served quickly, ordered our food and I kid you not had in within a few minutes. We were in and out the door in about 20 minutes. They are also one of the top 50 best Mexican restaurants... More

Stopped in Harlingen during the Memorial Day holiday on our way to Padre Island. I'm glad we did. The place has a family type atmosphere. There were a lot of people there, so I thought it would take a long time to get seated, but within a few minutes we had a table. Me and my wife ordered burritos and... More

My family was there when it was very busy. The meal I had was a cheese enchiladas with a meat taco. The taco was very good, but the cheese enchiladas were just cheese and corn tortilla. Service was good. Had to go to the cashier to get our check.

We eat there often with friends. Often the meal is very good, and other times it is average at best. Service is good, and portions are generous. Tuesday buffets are a good value for your money.

This Pepe's had just opened in Brownsville at the end of February 2016. The food and service was excellent. The chips and salsa are not free as they are in many other Mexican restaurants. The decor was very simple. All new but nothing warm about it. The lighting was way too bright.

Went to Pepe's on a recommendation. Good food and great prices. We ordered Chile rellenos, a guisado, enchiladas and tacos. Our party of 4 loved it!

The food wasn't bad, but the salsa was, and they charged for chips and salsa....terrible service! We were a party of 6 and got our meals at various times spread over 20 minutes!

We had a late flight and wanted to find something local that wasn't too far from the airport. Pepe's fit the bill. We knew it was a good sign when the parking lot was already full at 5:30 on a Monday night. Lots of locals, which was also a good sign. The chips and salsa were not free, which wasn't... More
