The first time we dined here was a couple weeks ago. The restaurant was packed and we decided to eat at the bar to avoid the 40 minute wait. What a great experience, we sat with the regulars and the owners were managing the bar. It was a great night, with good company! We enjoyed our meal and loved the... More

Best host I have experienced ANYWHERE! Service is good too. Food was pretty good, nothing super amazing that I am dying to return for. Cheese dip and salsa were very good. House margaritas were half price. My husband and I both got one (same type) and each tasted TOTALLY different. Neither very good at all. We would have rather paid... More

A favorite hometown haunt of ours. My husband and I have been eating here for over twenty years. The food is always amazing, prices reasonable, large portions, great drink specials and the service is top notch. Scott and Veronica are the nicest people you will ever meet!

Very clean, fast and friendly. Chips and salsa are good. I'm just not a fan of corn shells on my enchiladas. I prefer for shells. To me they needed sir cream or something because it was so dry. I would go back and try something else. Prices are fair.

Food and service has always been great here, there is something for every palate. Never been disappointed after about 10 visits. Prices seem a little high on menu but you really get your money's worth with Quality and ample servings.

Since our move to this area 12 years ago we have faithfully visited El Tio Pepe. They have authentic Mexican dishes such as made in corn husk tamales, hand made margaritas and home made chips and salsa. They are family owned and operated with delightful servers and bartenders. We have never had a bad visit. Give it a try.

Recently found this place and highly recommend! Half price margaritas on Wednesdays and classic Mexican food that is much more traditional and similar to what you find in Mexico than some other area Mexican places that have become more "Americanized" in their menu choices. Queso fundido is great, as well as the chimichanga. Staff is especially attentive and helpful too.

Newly remodeled with new sound system that plays subtly in background. Tv's placed where my husband doesn't miss any of the game. Very friendly,efficient staff. Margaritas are wonderful, very flavorful. I crave the verdes and my husband likes the mole sauce. We have tried lots of items on their menu, never disappointed.
