When we walked in there were about 4 other families, and we waited about 10 mins before getting served chips and salsa which was the only food that we had for the next 35 mins. We finally got our food when we were considering leaving....More

Very friendly staff, whom always make you feel welcomed. Another local favorite but so worth the wait. Food never disappoints and is served quickly. The Burrito challenge is something someone may want to try to tackle...lol

Pepe's is a mainstay in Madras, they have a loyal following and the food that has earned that reputation. Hungry? Steak & Bean Burrito is delicious -- just be sure to verbalize how much cilantro.
