Loved the ambiance and food at Pepe's!

Wide variety at a very reasonable price.. Tamales, Chile Relleno and Enchiladas-with cheese is good.

Recommended place for sure!

We've been here a few times over the years. When this was the only Mexican food in town it was OK but now Waukegan is the Hispanic capital of Lake County. So..... There is a Mexican eatery on every corner..
Pepe's seems to have generic Mexican food, and there are much better authentic restaurants around.

I just ate at Pepes for dinner. I got the chicken fajitas and a margarita. Both were excellent. The chips and salsa, hands down best I have ever had. The place is very clean, cute and cozy. Service was good. Overall I enjoyed my visit and will be back. Oh I got the fried ice cream that was delicious too.

Nice place but a little hidden.....I had Chicken Fajitas that were hands down some of the best I've ever eaten. The Margarita was excellent, not too sweet, not too sour. My wife had Chicken Tostadas and really liked the cheese melted on them. Definitely a return visit.
