This was the first time we had been here. We decided to go after hearing how great the margaritas were. We ordered both dinner and drinks.The food was OK. The enchiladas them selves were good, but the beans and rice were both very bland. The drinks were excellent and cheaper than we were expecting. The service was OK as well. If we go back we will probably just go for drinks.

Pepe's Restaurant has been in Lafayette for years near the intersection of Main St. and Sagamore Pkwy. Several years ago the restaurant moved to a location near the Tippecanoe Mall, in a building that once housed a Mexican restaurant with great atmosphere, but they couldn't stay in business. Pepe's almost immediately moved in and because of its local reputation has become even more popular than ever. The food is your basic southwestern style Mexican food that you are familiar with. Their specialty is their margarita which can be ordered in many different flavors. Mango is my favorite. The food is pretty average but it's the margaritas, the atmosphere, and the service that makes this restaurant a cut above.

This is a typical chain Tex Mex place. The food is alright, certainly edible, nothing special. Atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from a chain restaurant. There are much better choices for Mexican food in Lafayette.

There was a bug in my queso once. I was assured that it was a flub but I went back a few months later and the same thing happened.
