Good Service from smiling waitstaff. Food pretty average. One Mexican item with rice and beans is $10.50. Two items with rice and beans is $12.50. Fun to watch people. Patio right next to parking area so it can get pretty noisy with the few motorcycles...More

This restaurant is authentic Mexican food, therefore, many may not like this compared to American/Mexican/Southwestern. The fish tacos were amazing. The piece of fish was entree size with the choice of grilled or fried. You placed your own contents in the taco that came on...More

Unbelievable that they can stay in business....a great location but service and food are subpar. Lackluster in every way. Even the building is run down and unkempt. Got to be poor management because the location is great.

Dined to go, a carne asada burrito, carnitas burrito, and enchilada. Meats were just okay, hot, fair portioned, order was wrong. Carnitas were in large chunks, good flavor, a little dry. Carne Asada was very average and a little bland. Enchilada was good, and the...More

Just had lunch there for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed my chile relleno! Very authentic! Cute place, but parking can be a challenge since it's in Old Town Auburn. Will definitely return.

My husband and I tried this restaurant today. Reading all the reviews on this place, not good, we decided today to have lunch. This restaurant is horrible. Our waitress was not friendly, hardly said a word. We ordered two lunch specials, I had a enchilada...More

I have tasted my share of bad Mexican food, but this was by far the worst! I ordered the taquitos, but they were made with flour tortillas, so that would make them flautas people! My husband ordered the chicken mole', which had absolutely no flavor...More

I was looking for a good Margarita, so we thought we'd try Tio Pepe for dinner. The Margarita would have been excellent - except it was very watered down. Tip: If you go, get your drink on the rocks, not blended. We shared the Carnitas...More

This resturant is in charming Old town Auburn right of the freeway. The lunch specials are good and the tamale excellent, with large chunks of carnitas in side. They have redown the [atio and it's now more secluded with nice iron work and pavers. They...More
