Visited in February 2016. Food was quite food, although the options available from the Menu were limited. Food was served hot and very tasty. This place can have a better ambience, will help to attract a lot more customers.

We went to Don Pepe on a weekday night, many kids in tow. Food was quite disappointing. Too many and too much Indian masalas used across the board. The nachos came overdosed with what tasted like Garam Masala and the sour cream tasted like watery...More

I used to frequent this place years back and used to be good then. Used to enjoy the fajitas and borritos. Now there are many good places which have popped up but Don pepes was the pioneer.

I have been there plenty of times as my college was quiet close to it. The only items on the menu which is good is the margarita, quesadilla and the brownie with ice cream. Don't even try anything else!!
