My wife and I went to Don Pepper's this evening. We ate the shrimp, fish, and crab fajitas. Our waiter was very personable. The food was excellent - good tasting, ample portion, and quickly prepared. With the $5 coupon available at Publix, the meal was only $25 (including 2 soft drinks). Highly recommend.

Currently staying in Daytona and this place was recommended by a friend. After reading the reviews, I wondered if I was there on a bad night. Don't get me wrong, the service was fast, the prices were good, but the food I tasted lacked something. The shrimp chimichanga had big pieces of shrimp, but I had asked for it deep... More

We happened in one day for lunch and liked it so much we went back the next night for dinner. The food is delicious in this family-owned restaurant and the waiters were very attentive and a lot of fun.

We enjoyed a quick lunch. I did try to order something off the menu, which most chef's enjoy getting because its something new. I wanted a burrito with a corn tortilla due to gluten issues, and wanted beans, rice and cheese in it. It came without anything like that, the chef never read the order. So the waiter took it...

We've only ordered the same dish each time we come, but it's so good and never fails to please. It's the Sizzling Chicken Fajitas for me and the Steak Fajitas for my husband. We always have enough to take home for a snack or lunch, and both come with sauteed onions, bell peppers, tomatoes and are served with pico de... More

We eat here very frequently, one of the main reasons is the great, fast service. The food is always good, with reasonable prices.

The food was average… the salsa was pretty good. The service was awful, our waiter was never around. We had to ask the busboy for more chips. Wouldn't recommend or go back.

The only thing this restaurant has going for them is their friendly service. Their food has no flavor, and tastes like canned food. I got the taquitos, which were supposed to be shredded beef, it was the equivalent of the meat you get in a frozen, microwaved burrito. It also seemed as if it was made hours before and had... More

The service was excellent - fast is an understatement! Waiter was friendly and attentive. Had the carnitas. They were dry and tasted off. The beans and rice were good and the salsa was fresh and delicious.

Thank heatherpiro
