I had a combination plate of a soft taco and an enchilada. Both were very good but the cheesy, gooey deliciousness of the queso dip is to die for. Best chips, salsa and queso in town.

We had dinner here last week and we were really surprised by the poor quality of the food. The service was great but the food was not. We've visited this neighborhood gem for over 25 years and we were very disappointed with our meal. We ordered a chicken tostadas-the chicken and black beans were refrigerator cold and the cheese was... More

Wait staff are great - fast and friendly - and the food is wonderful. Good value, basic Mexican food. Fajitas are very, very good. Chips are fresh. The hot salsa is delicious.

Mid-range in cost and quality, Pepito’s is an acceptable spot for Tex-Mex food, if you are not expecting a whole lot. If it is convenient to go, by all means do so. If you want high-end food, then look for another restaurant. Margaritas were decent.

We met some friends at Pepito's (our first visit) for dinner. The basket of chips were tasty and fresh, and the mild sauce was good! I had a chicken burrito that was very good, esp with the additions of a bit of guacamole and sour cream. My husband had a starter of Nachos Lupitos for his entree - 6 fritters... More

A friend and I have been here several times as it is close to her house. The sidewalk seating is lovely in the evening but you will be screaming at each other to be heard over airplane noise and traffic on Chicago. Drinks are good. House margarita is excellent. Food is good but I rate this place low because the... More

We visited Pepito's on our anniversary trip. It had been recommended to us by a fellow Canadian. We will make sure we dine here again in future visits to Minneapolis.

Pepitos never disappoints. Complimentary chips and salsa. I like their hot salsa but I was with my son so had to stick with the mild. I also ordered their queso. I had a delicious house margarita on the rocks with a veggie enchilada. The best known dish is lupitas which I usually get but I felt like getting something different.
