Best fajitas in town! We went to celebrate a birthday at lunch and the staff was very accommodating. They set up a few tables and chairs for us to be able to sit together in this small restaurant! Very friendly and attentive!

Food is delicious and always hot. The best waiter is a guy named Marcos. We always look forward to eating there . I especially love their bistek ranchero it's soon good . I used to love their chiles rellenos but they are much smaller now.

When I have a craving for beef fajitas, and I don't feel like cooking them myself, I ALWAYS choose Pepe's. Whether you like fajita nachos or fajita tacos, you can't get better fajitas in Harlingen. The always fresh chips and salsa are the way to kick start your Mexican food meal. Before you need a refill on your drink your... More

The only reason I did not give them a five is because they charge you for salsa and chips. All Mexican restaurants I have been give you salsa/chips for free. The food is very good, the service was attentive and prices reasonable.

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.

Thank Robert M
