Description
Est. June 2006 Tucked into the vibrant inner-city suburb of Newmarket we offer you a taste of Central America, with a real knack for drinks. Over time sampled a huge range of Mexican Beers and Tequila, to bring you one of Australia's largest ranges of Mexican beer and Tequilas. The owners of Pepes Newmarket have been serving quality Mexican food since opening Brisbane's first Mexican restaurant at Milton in 1972. We believe in serving quality food that not only tastes great but is good for you too. Using the finest ingredients, such as the best quality vegetables and premium lean meats, chicken and seafood. We use cholesterol-free pure canola oil. We never use chemical additives or MSG in our food because we care about the health of our family and yours. Pepe's Mexican is also available for private catering!
