I have had the pleasure of enjoying the food here for many years. I drove out of my way on a Sunday night to get the #E Togo, just do yourself a favor and go there!!! The picture doesn't capture the art of the love of food here. No fake American text-mex here folks!

If they can hear your order over the noise in the restaurant when you call in, you're in luck. We love the food and it is always ready in 15-20 minutes. Good value and easy to pick up on my way home from work. Friendly servers.

We stopped in Dunnellon on a road trip and were surprised to find this little Mexican restaurant in an old cottage. We were sold when we saw local customers waiting on the porch for a table at lunch time. The service was efficient and the prices are super reasonable- most lunch combo plates $6 to $7. If we're in the... More

We visited Don Pepe on a Saturday evening. We have been there before, and had good food. This time was not so good. I ordered a combo plate with a taco, enchilada, a chili relleno and some beans. For an appetizer I ordered some guacamole. Good guacamole has some tomatoes...this guacamole had more tomatoes than avocado. The taste was ok,... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem! They are open for lunch from 11-2 and dinner from 5-9, and for dinner, to avoid a wait, better get there by 5, as it is a small restaurant. The food was exceptional! And the service was excellent! Fast and efficient. I had the garlic shrimp and it was incredible!! I can't wait to... More

Foods great. Tacos, enchiladas, beans and rice, nachos with their delicious cheese. A place to eat lunch with friend or go by yourself. They do carry-out. The employees are the nice and attentive through you meal.

I went back to Don Pepe's with another cousin...I couldn't get past the Carne Asada. Just as delicious as before. The wait staff are amazing....they all look after customers en masse and are so friendly. Sometimes you will serenaded by one of the cooks in the kitchen... A sure sign of a happy employee. This place is very busy but... More

Don Pepe occupies an old house in the historic area of Dunnellon, so the interior is quaint in a good way. Service is friendly. Salsa is good. Food is plentiful and very inexpensive. the food tastes on a par with many Mexican restaurants, and better than some, but not overwhelmingly wonderful. When I went for a weekday lunch, there was...
