No dine in options. Went for breakfast burritos. The largest burrito in the world. Couldn’t eat it all.

I've been coming here for 35 years and there is no substitute. Pepe's chile relleno burrito cannot be beat. Everything else is good and tastes fresh too.

While I was back in town on holiday, it was important to stop in for Margarita Wednesday for lunch. While the Montrose location doesn’t have the same charm as the LCF location, the larger restaurant and ample parking make your dining experience that much more...pleasant. The food is good, salsa tasty and staff friendly. Lots of places to choose from in town, this is #1 for good Mexican.More

Everything I have ordered for the past 15 years has been very good. I visit Nor Cal several times a year and I always get a request to bring a couple of orders of taquitos w/ guacamole. Keep up the good food and customer service....Thank you!More

I tried the Chile Relleno and Cheese Enchilada. It was a very full plate with rice and beans. Also a Guacamole and chips. All were excellent. I will be back.

Probably the best, fast, casual Mexican food in the area. The breakfast burritos are delicious and so are the tacos. They have the best nachos than anybody

I love Pepe's little drive though restaurant. Every time I am in Alhambra, I stop for a bite. There is always a line of cars waiting to get food, but it moves fast and is worth the wait. This place has the best Mexican food...in town! I recommend the tacos, enchiladas, or burritos. Good place to people watch too.More

Let's face it. Carne asada fries are awesome. And this Pepe's location is top notch when it comes to carne asada fries, enough for me to make the drive over. The thing that makes their's exceptional is the carne asada itself. Too many other mexican...eateries just throw the meat on the flat top, but at Pepe's you can tell that the meat is marinated and well seasoned. The refried beans are fantastic as well, and almost tasty (not texture) gravy-like, making this almost like a poutine. Since I have to make an albeit short trip to this particular location, I can attest to the fact that it still tastes incredibly fresh even 20 minutes later. At other places, they'd normally turn to mush.More

In a city where Asian food is everywhere along with all the usual American franchises, Pepe's is an oasis! All the usual Mexican-American dishes are on the menu and they are all good. One ultra important factor is Pepe's guacamole. It's real guacamole, probably better...than what your mother or grandmother made. This guacamole is thick, too thick to be dispensed out of a plastic squeeze bottle. That watery stuff is really avocado sauce; you won't find it here. The usual selection of burritos is here plus some surprises. And while you're here, eating in the small patio, or going through the drive through which can be backed up onto the street and around the corner, be sure to wash it down with an Orange Bang, a Lemon Olè or one of the other soft drinks that seem to be available only in neighborhood eateries on L.A.'s east side. Whatever it takes to have a meal here, it's more than worth the wait!More

This place has been around for decades and it still brings in a steady flow of customers. This is my teen daughters favorite fast food Mexican restaurant, it's one of my favorite places to get super nachos. They have a drive thru if you are...in a rush and do not want to relax and sit down in the patio area next to the sidewalk.More

During a scrapbooking session, my friends and I were craving a good burrito and found this Pepe's Mexican Food stand. The combo green chili burrito was one of the best I've had! All the items on the menu looked delicious and I will be visiting...again. Try it - you won't be disappointed!More

If you need a party platter I would suggest ordering from Albert Mexican on Fremont and Main. They offer the best food for parties, not that Pepe's is bad but they don't have the facilities for making a party platter.
