Vernal doesn't have a lot of places to choose from when it comes to dining. The food here is typical of most Mexican places - no better no worse. But for Vernal it is above average and much better than your typical fast food joint.

Great food. Service a tad slow but friendly and personable. A bit out of town but worth it 😉 absolutely loved the atmosphere.

Nice place, mom and pop feel. Food was pretty good and there was LOTS of it - your dining budget would go along way here. Waaaay better then a Denny's.

I was visiting my daughter and grandkids, we went to Don Pedros's for dinner. The service was excellent, and the food was awesome.

The food is expensive and always soggy when it gets to my table. The location is pretty far out of town and not really worth it. Maybe worth another shot, but both times I went I was unimpressed.

Vernal Utah has 3 delicious Mexican restaurants, but this is our family favorite when visiting! The chips are light, they include a warm bean dip that is addictive along with the salsa. Everything was delicious with on concern about the Chili Rellenos which are not firm but rather very soft and nondescript. Avoid those but enjoy every other part of... More
