“Mexican in Maine”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

Let's face it, most people dont visit Maine for the Mexican food. That said, I grew up in the area and believe Pepino's to be the best option available. Servers are friendly and the food is good. Albeit a little on the pricier side for the area if you find yourself in central maine with a hankering for mexican and like me prefer to avoid fast food if at all possible, Pepinos is your place!
...in fact Pepinos Taco Stand across the river in Brewer is the better of the two. Atmosphere is typical of a tiny mex joint and friendly neighbor like service -- food is the same.

“It isn't Arizona”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

It is at least closer to Mexican food than anywhere in Nova Scotia. This may suit the tastes of folk here in Maine but if you are looking for real Mexican or Southwest cuisine keep looking,

“Not that great, really...”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Limited menu, antiseptic setting. Food was okay, but not great. Waitress told me that fish tacos were the best thing on the menu. They were pretty good, but I've been to better Mexican restaurants than this.
