Pepe's wings are incredible. I've had them about 10 times now and they never disappoint! I can't comment on the rest of the food bc I haven't tried much of it. Great beer selection too and awesome daily specials in the lounge. Worth a visit for sure. Then another....and another

Not sure if more attention is given to... More

Wanted to try this place and found the food to be really good, First time tried the clam pizza it was definitely had good flavor but really enjoyed the veggie pizza with red sauce more. Best part of their pizza is the crust. service was good and staff is friendly.

Fast service with easy access from road. Greeted immediately and accommodations for eight was available without wait. Pretty great for a Friday night at 8 pm. Drinks were good, as was the pizza. It was authentic Italian pie and actually better than good. On top of it all, the TV was changed for us to allow us to catch up... More

We hate stopping at the places on the highway, but often can't figure out where to go. We had lunch in New Haven, and had wanted to go to Pepe's, but logistics didn't work out. When we were driving north later that day, we realized that there was a Pepe's in Manchester. It was about 2 miles, and 5 minutes... More

You would think Pepe's was only a small store front lunch bar. But there is a side entrance, and an outdoor beer garden, and most important, fine Italian food at down to earth prices. Good for business or casual.

Pepe's is kind of a hole in the wall place that we tend to forget about, but when we do go we're never disappointed. We recently stopped in for beers and appetizers. I was pleasantly surprised by their wings. They were nice and crispy with awesome flavors. This time around we did the garlic pepper, which was a dry rub,... More

I tried a pizza, and was very happy. Also had a dinner in the restaurant and was very happy. I thought the prices were reasonable, and the food was very good. I will be going back again...
