Pepitos Mexican Restaurant
I really enjoyed the food! Originally my group and I wanted to sit in the bar area for happy hour. The service was extremely slow in the bar area! It took 20 minutes to even get a waitress to come up to us. My group and I decided to move indoors! It was the best decision we made. Way less noise and better service. We were greeted within a few seconds of sitting down! Everything was timely and we could hear each other speak without background noise. I really enjoyed the food and mango margarita!!! Overall I would give it a 4 star if you are sitting indoors!
Great! Very good!
As we arrived two police cars were in the parking lot which blocked us from parking.The service was slow and no specials for taco Tuesday plus the margaritas are $9.99 which is over priced ! We normally head over to El Torito but we wanted to try this restaurant. As we headed to our car the car next to us had the front window smashed and the police told us their was a Stabbing.Bad experience..
We were looking for a spot to eat after the festival of lights. The food was good. Chips and salsa was the bomb. We had Shrimp Fajitas, Salmon plate, and a 3 item combo....all very good. The best part was the service. The waitress was very attentive. She brewed a fresh pot of decaf for us. Constantly checking on us...but not bothersome. Refilled my ice tea several times. She was super nice....too bad I didn't get her name.
Parking was a bit difficult.....Friday night lol. The bar music was a bit loud because the connecting door wouldn't close all the way.
All in all, a very enjoyable experience. Would definitely be back again!
Very good food along with a friendly, attentive wait staff. My friend had a margarita and said it was one of the best. The decor of the restaurant could use some updates but we were there for the food.
waitress accomodated y requests... would recommend to others to try...
Went for the food and was not disappointed at all. My wife's shrimp fajitas and my Carnitas plate were quite good. Did not go for the service which was lucky because it was not good. We never did get a glass of water even after requesting it multiple times. Our tortillas came out five minutes after our plates. There servers were running around like crazy, busy busy busy but they never seemed to do anything. Despite that I will go back for the food.
Had a late dinner. I was seated promptly and got a drink and chips soon after. Ordered my entree and waited longer than expected for my food but it was well worth it. Presentation was great and it was well prepared. I had the salmon and it was really good. The facility is a little dated but I would definitely return for the food.
Service was excellent! The food was authentic and superb.
Went to pepitos for the very first time on Valentine's. I honestly wasnt expecting amazing food from this establishment, because the outside appears dated. I was wrong, the food and service were 5 star all the way. We orderd the sante fe chicken egg roles and they blew us out of the water. Following our amazing appetizers I ordered the cardna asada with chimi churri sauce and my wife got the chicken fajitas. Both plates were amazing and earned us as customers. Our waitress informed us to try dinner on fridays nights because the serve fresh made tortillas with all meals. A true hidden gem in Riverside.
Best Margaritas! Very casual restaurant with great service and tasty classic Mexican dishes
