The place itself is old and rustic, which gives it an unique environment. The food is great, and fresh. What really sold this place was the pictures and the history that branded Pepe's. The room felt a bit cramped but it wasn't to bad.

Pepe's has a nice original feel, don't go on a rainy day, the roof leaks. It costs more than what I like to spend for lunch.

Great menu with some authentic Cuban dishes. The staff was very nice and the prices were mid range and about what you would expect.

Nice out door seating area. Burgers were good. Went for lunch-really wanted dinner but they only serve dinner starting at 5pm and we were 10 minutes early on tight schedule. Black bean soup was runny and waiter was crazed.
