There are many choices for good Tex Mex in Harlingen but Pepe's is an absolute must go to. The food is always consistently good. The servers are friendly and they will remember you the next time you are in. The prices are rediculously affordable and the portions are plentiful. Very good, authentic TexMex!

Best fajitas in town! We went to celebrate a birthday at lunch and the staff was very accommodating. They set up a few tables and chairs for us to be able to sit together in this small restaurant! Very friendly and attentive!

Food is delicious and always hot. The best waiter is a guy named Marcos. We always look forward to eating there . I especially love their bistek ranchero it's soon good . I used to love their chiles rellenos but they are much smaller now.
