Pretty sure our burritos were microwaved. Wasn't a great taste, rice was meh, beans were good. Lathered in hot sauce helped, but not very impressed. Service was good and chips and salsa were also tasty. For $15 I would expect better burritos

We used to come here all the time but haven't been in a few years. The food is still hearty and tasty but sadly it's not as lively as I remember! Good news for us though—no wait.

I've been to Tio Pepe's several times and it has always been consistently good. The owner is charming and a great host. Highly recommended!

Expensive (for what you get), tasteless (rice and beans taste like gyprock), the "chilli relleno" (stuffed pepper) was fried in old frying oil which tasted like fish. Cheap house wine. Atmosphere below 0. To avoid: save your money!

This is pretty good Mexican food, including some unusual items, like Mexican pork chops. Nice intimate little setting, and cold Dos Equis!

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
