“Terrific food and even better service”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

From the outside it might look sketchy, but it is very quaint inside. This restaurant has been family owned for 32 years. The owner, a very beautiful lady, is personable and loves to converse with the regulars. The waitstaff is terrific too.

The food is authentic and delicious. We came because of the Frommer's recommendation and glad we did.

“Molé!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We have dined at Pepe's many times over the years, and I always order the chicken molé. It is absolutely superb and one of the best in Phoenix. My husband loves the tacos Monterrey and the tacos Siberia. The chips are always warm and fresh, and the salsas have a bit of a bite.
Pepe's is not fancy, but a great local diner with an attentive owner and staff.
Did I say "order the molé?". Can't say it enough:)!

“Jose make the best margarita in town!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We eat at Pepe's as often as we can. We have eaten there for years. We love, love, love the spicy pork tacos and taco tuesday tacos. This is one of my favorits to take people from out of town for real mexican that isn't way too spicy. Jose makes the best margarita in town it is so fresh and yummy, I think I have to go have one right now. Try Pepe's it casual, fun, the game is on and you won't regret it. I'll see you there.

“Great southwestern food in Phoenix.”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

We had lunch at Pepe's Taco Villa prior to driving to the Grand Canyon. It was day to fine and well worth the visit. The food was exceptional and very fresh. The tacos were crisp and delicious. The service was attentive and you felt like you were a guest at Pepe's home. I would definitely recommend visiting while in Phoenix.
