I've eaten at Pepinos many time. This was my first exposure to Mexican/TexMex style food. I never have had a bad meal at Pepinos. The food is somewhat Americanized, but that is what many people around here like.

Since moving to the Park Street location, everything has changed. The service was terrible. The food was not the same. No more ambiance. Its loud and confusing...crowded. There was no way to identify who worked there vs. who was a patron. Ive been going there for years. I crave it. I dont plan on ever returning again. We left early... More

My husband and I decided to try out the new location on Park St in down town Bangor this past weekend and I have to say I was so disappointed! I ordered the guacamole salad and it was a very large bed of iceberg lettuce, 2 tomato slices uncut, a slice of green pepper and a cucumber (yes, I said... More

Go often, every meal has been excellent. Service is friendly and quick. Never have to wait for a table. Chips would be better served warm and with a little salt. Salsa varies -- sometimes it's too hot.

This is the only Mexican place to eat in Bangor. The food is consistently great, service is excellent, and the new location is very downtown hip. We have tried the other Mexican eateries as they opened and always return to Pepino's. I love the cheese enchiladas and jumbo lime margarita, and Husband enjoys the combination plate. Don't forget to try... More

We have been "Pepino's People" since they opened! Followed them to various locations, and even after new ownership, we were there several times a month. Always the food is excellent Tex Mex and they are the only place that makes an excellent lime margarita! The move to downtown increased their business which is great for them, but the set up...

For the most part Pepino's has great service - all the staff is very friendly. While the food may not be what some other Mexican restaurants offer we are fine with that as when I order a beef taco I want beef not bean mixed into it.

Pepinos is consistently good.. Sometimes they're busy and the service suffers a bit but what restaurant doesn't have that problem..? As a server I feel their pain. Especially when you get a customer like half the people on here who will complain about absolutely anything. My favorites are the chicken chimichangas, fried ice cream, beef enchiladas and of course their... More

We went for dinner, it was at their new location. The place seems smaller. We had a variety dish, quesadilla, and chips and salsa. We shared it all. The variety dish had taco, enchilada and cheese crisp. It was only ok, my issue with it was it had very little flavor. This is Mexican food and should be very flavorful.... More
