We use to go to Pedro's quite often when they had a west Madison location, but don't get to the east side as often. I'm not a big fan of Mexican food, but there are two items that I particularly enjoy here. First, they give you free chips and salsa which most places no longer do. The chips are really... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here on October 29th before going downtown on this beautiful Saturday. The hostess/server wasn't very friendly. She sat us at a booth that was so narrow we didn't even bother to sit down so we sat in the next booth. Their were crumbs on both seats and hardly anyone in the restaurant. There are glasses...

We had a group of 7 on a Saturday and a 25 minute wait. We were busy talking so didn't really notice a lot of waiting, though I know we had to stop the waitress several times. Watching them make their own tortillas was impressive as we walked in and raised our expectations. The chips and salsa served at the... More

This restaurant was a delightful surprise. Not much to look at on the outside and set a bit back from the road would make this easy to dismiss. However, the inside is well decorated with murals, stained glass and iron scultpute that is tasteful and not overly done. But, let's talk food! Delicious, hot and flavorful chips, salsa and homemade... More

We have been eating at Pedros for 30 years. And, we have consistently said how it was the best place for Mexican food. But, the last few visits we have commented how it looks like the owner is giving up and we wouldn't be surprised if the place is closed by the end of the year. Large pot holes in... More

The atmosphere was great (we sat on the bar side) Good music. Good food. Adrian was super nice and fun. Great night out after a long day in training.

Chips and salsa good. Food was great. Place is rundown on the outside and could use a heavy cleaning top to bottom. Glass light above table had some splatter on it from something

Restaurant is filthy. service terrible. Food delicious. But, with the restaurant being so filthy, I won't go back. Not sure how safe the food actually is. Saw no Mexicans actually working in any capacity at the time I was there, and it's so nice to see the culture represented in the restaurant.

Been going there for years. Generally solid food and service, although there was a slip this summer. We love the pork. The green salsa should be asked for (traditional hot). And you should watch the tortilla machine.

I've been a Pedro's customer for years while I lived in Madison. However on a recent trip back to town, I was disappointed with the entire visit. It was a slow night and we were immediately seated. But the experience went downhill from there. We ordered drinks but the soda I wanted was "out", so I stuck with water, which... More
