We had lunch at Pedro's on a Wednesday afternoon. The place was close to packed. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. Service was fast. This was not some carbon copy chain restaurant but a real family operation and the food and the service showed the level of care and consideration only family restaurants can provide. We shared an asparagus quesadilla... More

It is worth going just for the salsa..... All you can eat with warm chips!!!! Hot and mild. They have a full menu of great Mexican food, and the sweat green chili tamales are the bomb. I love their taco's too. I am not a big Mexican food fan, but am always satisfied with their food. I recommend highly for... More

Had been here before a year and a half earlier and gave it another try. Quite enjoyed the food and small restaurant decor, like the blankets being used as dividers between the booths. Go early as it can get filled quickly especially on weekends. The green chili covered tamale was excellent.

This hole I the wall has been around for years, and it shows. Food is basic Mexican, greasy, calorie laden fried and more fried, nothing imaginative. Supposedly known for their tamales, mine was a lot of doughy flour and not much sweet corn, covered with a quickly congealing green chili sauce. No real margaritas, just the "wine " kind, so...
