We have been going to Pepitos for 20-30 years, and have always enjoyed the guacamole and chips, margaritas and large portions. It is a true neighborhood hangout. Now that there is talk of it closing, (we hear they have given up their liquor license), we...More

I know this is a very popular restaurant, so I was a bit concerned that we wouldn't get in, but the lunch hour is definitely not the busy time. We were able to get in and sit at a table immediately. Our food was fantastic....More

This used to be a great, authentic Mexican restaurant. The food is mostly ok, but you don't get much for your money. Most of the dishes that we ordered didn't have anything on the side. No rice or beans. The chips and salsa are free,...More

The place looks kind of scruffy, but adorable and authentic. Tucked away in a residential neighbourhood away from the beaten touristy path. Surprisingly cheap.

I was there recently for the second time. The enchilada sauce is hands down the best I have ever tasted! Service is great too.

We just finished lunch at Papito's. I had a burrito with beef and black beans, served encellada style (topped with cheese and mole sauce), recommended by our server. My wife had the same thing, only with chicken. Both were absolutely delicious! Salsa and chips was...More

This is the worst restaurant in the Twin Cities. I ordered floutas, the dish I was served looked like someone was once told what floutas are but had never seen or eaten them before. Everything has canned olives on it, completely bizarre. I ordered a...More

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.
