“Good food & inexpensive, but no glamour.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2010

For basic Mexican food, cooked to order, at a good price, this is a good choice. No Margaritas or guitar-laden singers. Just a bare-bones eatery.

“Better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2010

The place reminded me of a local take out mexican joint with dine in tables. Not fine dining but good food freshly prepared. The good food freshly prepared part deserves some emphasis.

The (al pastor) pork tasted like they prepared and seasoned it themselves. I've had it at dozens of places and they're all a little different. The vegetables were fresher tasting than expected, especially for this early in the season.

Service is not sit down restaurant quality, but par for the course in a place that does this much take out. The wait staff seemed friendly and willing to please if not especially skilled.

You're not going to impress anyone by bringing them here. You will get a meal prepared there in their style. If you like little corner taquerias you'll like this place. If ya like big box chain food fare this place is a gamble. I know I'm coming back.

“Excellent and Authentic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2010

I visit El Amigo Pepe occasionally when I am in the area. They have excellent food, and the prices are quite reasonable. The food is very authentic, and their "spicy" food is actually spicy (unlike many other restaurants). I recommend the Burritos and the Beef Shoulder Tip!

Check it out, you won't be disappointed!
