I have tried the Enchiladas a few times. Every time the next morning I have the worst case of the ?????! The wait staff is good! I will not be going back!

Comparable decor to a Chi Chis. Food is awful. Had the chicken fajitas which was more veggies than chicken. Burned myself in the handle as they didnt have handle covers. Still have the scar on my right arm. Didnt recieve an apology or handle cover when I explained what happen. Ordered the strawberry frozen margaritas and most of the drink... More

The real deal if such a thing exists just south of the Canadian border. Chips (very fresh) and salsa (the best I've ever had) served with a warm bean paste. Taquitos were excellent. Service very attentive and prompt. Endorsement: several tables of Hispanic diners. Earlier comments about the place being slightly run down and not so clean are valid. But,... More

Very good food. Salsa was tasty with just a bit of a kick. Service was quick and friendly. Good quality and quantity for the price.

Title pretty much says it all, there's some disconnect between Mexican food and Williston, ND. I didn't recognize most of the dishes once they came out (that's not what enchiladas look like!), very bland. Poor service, dirty location... all the way around not very good.

Love the food! Love the complimentary chips and salsa! The atmosphere could use a little work but I feel like the value is very good. I generally order the steak sopresa and almost always have leftovers for lunch the next day.

This restaurant needs a good deep cleaning. The bathrooms were very dirty. Our waitress virtually ignored us, and the food was not good. Qdoba would have been a better option.

Eating here off and on for the last 2 years and it just doesn't seem like any of their meats have any flavor to them at all. It's mostly drown everything in sauce or dry as a bone. We decided this place just isn't worth it anymore.

Don Pedro's is a colorful, friendly place to stop for a delicious meal. The service was quick. The food was tasty and the price was reasonable. I recommend the fajita salad, which was large enough to require a doggie bag.

Nothing really special, decent Mexican food. Often a line to wait to be seated, very small and very warm waiting area or wait outside.

Thank mick s
