We were hungry and this mexican restaurant was not far from our hotel. It was busy so we thought it must be good however, I think it was the happy hour margaritas that brought the customers. Food was really bad with no flavour. So many other places to eat

We have walked past a dozen or more times and decided to give it a try. The staff and service were great and the portions quite large but taste was just okay. I had the Tacos Mexicanos with chicken and was disappointed. The place was pretty full but we will not return.

Pepe Delgado's used to be the place to go for good Mexican food in SLO. Unfortunately that is not the case anymore. Although the portions were large, they were mediocre at best.

Had a family dinner here. Even though it was packed (we did call ahead to reserve a table) service was prompt, efficient, and well timed. Food was very good- lots of vegetarian options. Their chips are great- thin and crispy.

After reading reviews decided to stop for lunch. It was very quiet, however the food was very slow to come. The food was good but overpriced in my opinion. The portions are very large so could easily share and make more cost effective. I will keep looking for good Mexican food on SLO.

This friendly restaurant was very good for service and quantity of food. We were there for lunch and ordered the specials for $7.99 with rice and beans. The cheese enchiladas were really tasty along with the chicken and fish tacos. Their salsa and chips were also very good.

I was here by myself but I would suggest you go there with an appetite. I had not eaten in 24 hours and still it was too much food. Good Mexican cuisine and the wait staff were friendly and a pleasure to talk with.
