Went for a birthdya party and seating was a problem, not for me but for the family that wanted to all sit together. The staff waited until we could have tables all next to each other. It was worth the wait, I really enjoyed my food.

Pleasantly surprised by the quaint atmosphere of the old house with divided dining rooms. It was quite busy when we visited but the service was prompt and the food plentiful and hot when served. No distinct difference with the food though. It has the typical chips, salsa and menu options as any other Mexican restaurant, but was worth the drive... More

My family and I have utilized both take out and in house dining at this restaurant many times. My wife likes the chimichanga with chicken and we both like the fajitas. My favorite dish is the carne asada. Depending on the day the seating can be a little slow, and the service while friendly could use a little motivation. Friday... More

We don't eat Mexican very often but the reviews for Don Pepe's were so good, we decided to give it a try. The nacho chips are served hot and the salsa is to die for! I had chicken tacos and they were very good, hubby had enchiladas and said they were delicious, and he's not one to give compliments. Service... More

I have had the pleasure of enjoying the food here for many years. I drove out of my way on a Sunday night to get the #E Togo, just do yourself a favor and go there!!! The picture doesn't capture the art of the love of food here. No fake American text-mex here folks!

If they can hear your order over the noise in the restaurant when you call in, you're in luck. We love the food and it is always ready in 15-20 minutes. Good value and easy to pick up on my way home from work. Friendly servers.

We stopped in Dunnellon on a road trip and were surprised to find this little Mexican restaurant in an old cottage. We were sold when we saw local customers waiting on the porch for a table at lunch time. The service was efficient and the prices are super reasonable- most lunch combo plates $6 to $7. If we're in the... More

We visited Don Pepe on a Saturday evening. We have been there before, and had good food. This time was not so good. I ordered a combo plate with a taco, enchilada, a chili relleno and some beans. For an appetizer I ordered some guacamole. Good guacamole has some tomatoes...this guacamole had more tomatoes than avocado. The taste was ok,... More
