We went here bases on reviews and were not disappointed. We split a taco dinner and it was plenty for us. We did have guacamole and margaritas, too. All served with a smile, offer of extra plate and served up quickly.

had a very nice date yesterday at Don Pedro! I think this place would do big business if they had more seating. That being said we didn't have to wait long for a table and the staff were incredibly friendly and aware of customer needs....More

We had delicious food and great service. Our waitress was very friendly and catered to our every need. Wasn't busy when we went in, but picked up quickly. The interior really could use an update and the furniture too. Otherwise, will go back!

This is nothing like the typical Mexicain chains. The food is better and fresher. The staff is very nice too!

Great food & great service. Waitresses were friendly. Excellent nachos too. You can select from the menu what toppings you want to add to your tacos & nachos. Many to choose from. Not a big place but definitely worth a stop if your in Effingham.

Stopped in with a group. Drinks came quickly, no appetizers ordered, and the meal was prompt too. We all ordered a selection and no one was disappointed. And the price was right! Highly recommend the fajita's and the enchiladas.

My mother and I stopped here to eat on a day trip passing through Effingham. It is a small restaurant, not much decoration, but clean. We were greeted by friendly staff the moment we walked in the door. The food was delicious and the waitstaff...More
