Decided to give this place a second chance. Big mistake. The aluminum ceiling makes eating here like dining in a subway car. Too damn loud. The food is ok but with all the choices of New Mexican restaurants in the area this place is not...for me. A good place to take a date with whom you don’t want to socialize with. Go elsewhereMore

Came through Richmond on the way to family in North Carolina, and arranged to meet old friends at a restaurant on Midlothian Turnpike. They got to the chosen restaurant before us, called us and told us the wait time was ridiculous. The new meetup would...be at Pepe's Mexican Restaurant. At Pepe's, we got a nice table without a reservation. We were treated to friendly waiters, delicious authentic Mexican cuisine, and a festive atmosphere. My margarita was so delicious that I had two! We ate and laughed and talked for a long time, and nobody made us feel that we had overstayed. The friends picked up the check, so I'm not sure about the prices. However, from what I remember of the menu, they are on par with other Mexican sit-down restaurants. They have their own parking, and the restaurant can easily be seen from the road.More

The food was very good. There's a white dipping sauce for chips that is absolutely amazing! Each time we were there, our entre was delicious. It was reasonable with nice portion sizes.

Have tried this for take out on several occasions and very good meals. Tacos burritos rice and beans and their chips are outstanding! We placed a very large order last night and asked for a few modifications (like no sour cream) .They got everything right.... Their chips and salsa are great to eat the next day. It’s a smaller menu now, but what they offer they do or right! Very reasonably priced.More

Friendly staff, quick service, and good food! The white sauce was a little sweet to my taste, but still a nice contrast with the red salsa for dipping chips. The lunch portion was easily two meals' worth of food, and it was excellent. I do...wish, though, that straws were either served on the side or on request only - this is a plea to all restaurants, BTW. The inside could use some TLC (e.g., refinish tables), but on the whole, it was a good experience.More

My family and I found Pepe’s a few years ago. We live about 25 minutes away and have 2-3 Mexican restaurants and many other types of restaurants just minutes away from our house. Nothing compares to Pepe’s! The food, the atmosphere, and the people. We...have been treated like family since the first day we walked in. The food is outstanding! We have been a hundred times and tried many different entrees and all of them are so good. We are really big fans of their carnitas. If you’re looking for a good Mexican restaurant or a new place to try, even if it’s across town, take the drive. Pepe’s never disappoints. “Listen to your gut, it’s speaking Spanish.”More
