Good chips and salsa. Nice variety of menu items. Good margaritas. Service can be slow at times if it is super busy.

Whenever we return to Topeka,my wife and I go to Pepe and Chela's at least once. Went with friends this week and the food, service and cleanliness of the facility was great as always. Great place for all.

This place has a nice variety of Mexican dishes. I am fajita fan so that's what I have. We also like their guacamole. Their Fajitas Locas are good for dinner. We also go for the burrito bowls sometimes.

It was pretty quick for sit down but not a great deal of flavor if you are into very ethnic taste it will leave you dissappointed.
