.Just to confirm, the salsa and chips are fresh and outstanding. Only tried the red salsa, and it was flavorful but not spicy hot. Ordered the combination fajita entrée and wit was quickly delivered sizzling hot. A huge amount of food, easily enough for to modest diners. With the huge portion, the four small flour tortilla was simply not enough;... More

They do a good job on the food, the staff is attentive and the atmosphere is so-so . . . . Its looks a like rundown inside but if you look pass that the food is worth it. Great Salsa and chips !

We love going to Tio Pepe's because of the large portions you get for a great price. The waiters are all nice and we never had a problem with the food or service.

We've been Tio Pepe's customers for years but hadn't been there for several months. On our visit recently we were shocked to see the increase in prices. Also they have installed new CFL light bulbs that give off a horrible harsh ultra bright white light. Very unpleasant! We left without ordering and told them why on the way out. We... More

To those people complaining about Tio's go £¥*> yourselves. This place is fantastic. Been eating here for years. The food is always fantastic. The service is always good. Maybe they could fill my chip bowl more but let's be honest, do I need that third bowl? Margaritas are excellent and they have a full bar. Prices are very reasonable. Highly... More

I had the burrito magnifico with spicy chicken. It was far from magnificent, and I thought it was very bland with very little flavoring other than cheap cheese. the sides consisted of runny beans and dry rice with old and dry veggies mixed in. Worst of all I have spent the last several hours repeatedly rushing from by bed to... More

First time there and let me tell you if my sister wasn't insistent I would have ran as soon as I saw all the garbage in the doorway! Very old dirty decor, flys, no air conditioning and the tables and menus dirty and sticky. I decided not to attempt to get anything to crazy or expensive as I anticipated the... More
