Family owned and long-time Topeka restaurant. Wide variety of traditional Mexican fare. Food quality and service are excellent. Chips and salsa always fresh.

I stayed across the street at the Senate Hotel so this was one of the closest places to eat. I ordered some food to go one night during my stay. The service was fast and friendly. The food was yummy.

I used to be a regular weekly visitor at Pepe & Chela's, but I no longer visit on a regular basis because I am not downtown so often anymore. But I still meet friends and former co-workers there from time to time. The original owners sold the business several years ago. Overtime, I really notice changes to some of the... More

We have visited Pepe & Chela's several times over the past couple of years at the request of friends or groups. Something is not the same and I can't quite put my finger on it. Food is just okay. Nothing special. Even the chips and salsa are not memorable. We always have problems with service. A foursome - we had... More

Food was very bland and mainstream, but remember where this restaurant is! Run of the mill, no problem with the service, acceptable, but not a destination.

We ate at Pepe's and Chela's recently , while on a vacation. The food and service were very good, overall. My wife ordered the quesadillas, which she said were a bit bland,----maybe our own fault since we told the waitress we didn't care for really spicy food. I had the smothered burrito--very nice flavor. Lots of food for both of... More

We go to P and C's at least every other week. We enjoy it. The staff is friendly with some having been there a long time,which is always a good sign. Food is good, well presented, always warm, always fresh.
