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.

Nice but bad service. Salsa is bad, food was bland and poor quality. Forgot an order, had a drink special but didn't have the ingredients to make it.

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.

This place is near the Capital where I was staying. It seems to be fairly popular and the service was by people who seemed to care. My Margarita was delicious and the Mole was better than average. It wasn't a masterpiece, but it was better...More
