This place was ok but not fantastic. The decor is dated and the food is overpriced. I'm a fan of chili verde but here that means a red sauce not green so that is disappointing. We were promptly greeted and seated by the host who was dressed in a coat and tie. The server came by with chips and salsa... More

This is close to Quality Suites and we ate here twice. The usual selection of Mexican dishes. Friendly staff and good service.

We met Barbara and chooey at the Madonna inn the night before and they kindly invite us to their restaurant the following Day. We were visiting from London, England and they made us feel very welcome in their hometown. We had some delicious Mexican food for lunch and loved the decor of the restaurant as well as the fun uniforms!... More

We were hungry and this mexican restaurant was not far from our hotel. It was busy so we thought it must be good however, I think it was the happy hour margaritas that brought the customers. Food was really bad with no flavour. So many other places to eat

We have walked past a dozen or more times and decided to give it a try. The staff and service were great and the portions quite large but taste was just okay. I had the Tacos Mexicanos with chicken and was disappointed. The place was pretty full but we will not return.

Pepe Delgado's used to be the place to go for good Mexican food in SLO. Unfortunately that is not the case anymore. Although the portions were large, they were mediocre at best. The salsa tasted & looked like tomato sauce and the special steak ranchero picado was so chewy it was unenjoyable. The server was attentive, but neglected to mention... More

Had a family dinner here. Even though it was packed (we did call ahead to reserve a table) service was prompt, efficient, and well timed. Food was very good- lots of vegetarian options. Their chips are great- thin and crispy.

After reading reviews decided to stop for lunch. It was very quiet, however the food was very slow to come. The food was good but overpriced in my opinion. The portions are very large so could easily share and make more cost effective. I will keep looking for good Mexican food on SLO.
