“TEX-MEX”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

As a previous reviewer said, Pepe's food does remind me of border food I used to eat in Matamoros. On a recent trip to Harlingen, I went with 3 friends to Pepe's. We decided to split the botana platter for two. This had plenty of food for four people especially since we all ordered cups of the delicious jalepeno soup. Bontana platter was very good, but the soup was a must have. It is called jalepeno soup but there are no jalepeno's in it--just chicken, rice, and cheese--fabulous! Service was fast. Will visit again next time in Harlingen.

“PePe's still on Top!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Had lunch once again at what we feel is the best Mexican Food in The Valley. It reminds us of the food that used to be in Matamoros before the violence. Everything was fresh and the service is quick and professional even with a full house which is most of the time. We like to order off the side order menu and add things like extra cheese and Salsa Picante. Gotta Love it. Very reasonable prices make it the best! Five Stars in all Departments! Ho Ho Ho!!!

“Pepe's is the Place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Pepe's probably has the best cheese enchiladas I've ever eaten. The service is terrific. The reason it did not get a 5 rating is that the chips were greasy, but other than that, this place is awesome! Don't be deterred by a full parking lot; they get you seated very quickly.
