Dining is an experience. Glad they are not my neighbors for a lack of care. Rolling Meadows should be pouncing on them to fix this eye sore up. With that said, food and inside atmosphere is good. If they don't care ... why should we? Better choices in Schaumburg...

I love Mexican food and I love Pepe's. I was reluctant to try it and passed it at least once a week. They are so nice, the food is great and it is a good time.

We have stopped there several times for dinner. The food was always delicious and the margaritas are especially good. It's an older restaurant but always kept clean. Their combos are great.

I ordered the chicken quesadilla with refried beans and other sauce on the side. In addition, I ordered a large margarita on the rocks :-). The service was very consistent. The environment was very calming. I will definitely be visiting again.

It is what it is.., good cheap Mexican food. My kids actually love it more than I do, so we go because they like it.

The service was a little slow but the food was good! The tables are a little close so there is alot of noise. Yummy food.

The. Best. Chips and salsa! Great service, amazing food! My family and I have been going here for decades; the food and service have been consistently great! I live a long distance from here, but it is always worth the drive. Have literally never had anything bad here. Love, love, love this place!

I took the family to eat Mexican after my wife attended a daylong conference. We had chips, beans, rice, tacos, taco salad, quesadilla, enchilada, tamale, and tostada. Not one of these items were on par with other Mexican restaurants we have had in other states. The food was not disgusting, it was just not as good as what we have... More

Pepe's for many may seem routine but it is always worth a try. Top notch Burrito Suizo is a good portion delivered hot. The chips and salsa are fine with attentive service thruout the meal.

The Carne Asada a la Tampiquena (appropriately described as Tender, juicy and flavorful broiled skirt stea topped with ranchera sauce) is A++++++++++.
