We went in for lunch and ended up in a rear of the restaurant table facing palm trees and dense woods, but we loved it! It's actually quite large! We had soft tacos and a chimichanga and everything was great! It was comfortable, colorful, and easy to talk and carry on a conversation. Our waiter was very personable and friendly... More

The food was very delicious!! We had the green enchiladas and the tamales. We also had margaritas with our meal which were very good as well. Give this place a try. The decor is unique and fun. The servers are polite and friendly.

The food is all authentic Mexican, with some minor adjustments to accommodate American palettes. My kids love the endless nacho chips and their variety of tacos. My wife adores their Flautas and will occasionally complain when she's gone too long without them. Me? I like it all, especially the margaritas.

We go every 2 months and most of the time we received good customer service in the restaurant area, the food is very good and the portions are good size, the atmosphere is nice. The bar area is good but too small to dance and the beers are a little expensive for that place. But overall is good place.

It started off very well - we were seated promptly, and courteously. Our server took our drink order, and returned in a good time with them; she followed up by taking our food order, and so far it looks great! Our appetizers come out timed perfectly, and they are fairly good - Guacamole with chips and Taquitos Dorados. That's where... More

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and good food makes Pequito's a must return...tucked away in a shopping center on 163rd St. You can only see it from Biscayne Blvd.
