Too Pepe's was a favorite. We haven't been able to be in since last January. The service was quick but it could be because few were dining. Friday evening, went by at 6 no cars to be seen. Arrived at 7:30 a few were there. Left at 8:10, only 1 other table and they were leaving too. Small portions. How... More

.Just to confirm, the salsa and chips are fresh and outstanding. Only tried the red salsa, and it was flavorful but not spicy hot. Ordered the combination fajita entrée and wit was quickly delivered sizzling hot. A huge amount of food, easily enough for to modest diners. With the huge portion, the four small flour tortilla was simply not enough;... More

We love going to Tio Pepe's because of the large portions you get for a great price. The waiters are all nice and we never had a problem with the food or service.

We've been Tio Pepe's customers for years but hadn't been there for several months. On our visit recently we were shocked to see the increase in prices. Also they have installed new CFL light bulbs that give off a horrible harsh ultra bright white light. Very unpleasant! We left without ordering and told them why on the way out. We... More

To those people complaining about Tio's go £¥*> yourselves. This place is fantastic. Been eating here for years. The food is always fantastic. The service is always good. Maybe they could fill my chip bowl more but let's be honest, do I need that third bowl? Margaritas are excellent and they have a full bar. Prices are very reasonable. Highly... More

I had the burrito magnifico with spicy chicken. It was far from magnificent, and I thought it was very bland with very little flavoring other than cheap cheese. the sides consisted of runny beans and dry rice with old and dry veggies mixed in. Worst of all I have spent the last several hours repeatedly rushing from by bed to... More
