Of 3 people's orders 2 were totally cold & other 1 was slightly warm. But heard to many bad stories about returning an order. So most of food was left on plates.

Honestly, there are SOOO many Mexican Restaurants these days, it's hard to eat at and remember all of them sometimes, lol... Perico's old back-door kitchen used to really stand-out as an ORIGINAL Mexican kitchen, the ladies spoke very lil' English but DID "throw-down" some nice Mexican faire...

Met several friends at Perico's for lunch. The salsa was excellent. It had chunks of tomatoes making it appear to be freshly made. The dishes were all adequate with no surprises. Service was attentive. The fact is if you want Tex-Mex quick, Perico's will work.

has the best cheese dip around town! Service is pretty good. We went for lunch right after opening for the day so it wasn't that crowded.

Dined solo mid afternoon during the week. Service was slow, very slow. It took awhile to be seated, even longer to get chips and salsa and nearly 20 minutes to order. Food was subpar, salsa wasn't fresh.. tasted like Pace Picante from the jar. Multiple dirty tables present upon my arrival were still dirty as I left. Good luck.. only... More

One of the best Chimichangas I have ever had. Earlier, An African-American reviewer labeled the restaurant as racists. I am white, and I too have had terrible service at this restaurant. Not always, but enough to give this place one star for service. I wouldn't call them racist for sometimes providing bad, or slow service though. Don't use the racist... More

Better than average food, good service, and good prices. A great neighborhood place. There are some unusual choices on the menu which set this restaurant apart from other Mexican restaurants in the area. Perico's is the best Mexican restaurant in Jasper.

My friend and I (both African Americans) went to dine there and the cashier was nice, we were escorted to our table, and we received our drinks and chips. While waiting for someone to come back and take our orders, we noticed that four different groups (all white and one person was Asian) had walked in and their orders we're... More
