“Mexican at its Best”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Visiited this restaurant for the first time three weeks ago for my daughter's 33rd Birthday and must say we were more than pleased with the whole experience. Warm welcome, prompt service, lovely smiling and friendly staff and fabulous food. It reminded us of our holiday in Mexico and we almost felt we were back there. They realised it was a birthday treat so all the staff sang to her and brought out a lovely cocktail with a sparkler in it, making her feel very special, although somewhat embarrassed too! We will definitely be back even though we have to travel from Lichfield, but it's well worth it.

“Great Mexican ”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Have been here a number of times over last four years and have always had great food. Went tonight and was seated quickly having booked earlier the same day. Service was polite and quick. Food was lovely and reminds me of being in Arizona where I have tried some of the best Mexican food. The restaurant is rustic clean and has a good atmosphere. Will be back again in due course.

“Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We came across this by chance as we were staying at the Stuart Hotel, and thought mexican would be a good choice for our tea. We were very pleased with the atmosphere, we both ordered cocktails which were very tasty. We both chose fajitas however my friend requested lettuce leaves instead of tortilla and they were very happy to oblige. Good value for an authentic restaurant.

“Great Mexican just on the outskirts of Derby”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

It's been a few years between visits but we visited Pepitos as we fancied Mexican.

The food was great as was the service. The only thing I felt let it down was the laminated place mats and a few of the decor bits.

Apart from that if you want great Mexican then I would recommend it.
