We love this place! The Chimichanga, Chicken Quesadilla, and Verde Burrito are our family favorites! The chips are fresh and the salsa is medium heat. Fast and friendly service. They have great kids meals and lunch specials. We just wish that they were open on...More

Picked this from other TripAdvisor reviews. No muss. No fuss atmosphere. Ordered a pork burrito at the recommendation of our service. The flavor was out of this world, but it was a little dry with no sauce. My son had cheese nachos and they made...More

This is the BEST Mexican restaurant in the area. It serves food similar to what is served in Mexico. The tacos are authentic and not the typical "taco bell" stuff. They don't have lots of cheese and other Americanized versions of Mexican food. Sometimes they...More

Good food. Some things are lost in translation so if you like something other than "the # --" Good luck. Also prices for the same objects seem to be different every visit. But food is great and service is too.

Some dishes were more flavorful than others. The flautas had good flavor, but the accompanying rice and retried beans were bland. Caleta burrito was stuffed with too much of the same tasteless rice. Salsa was fresh and homemade, as was the guacamole.

My wife and I ate here twice. The first time was in late September 2016 as we were starting on a month-long hiking road trip. We found Don Pedro’s through Trip Advisor, and boy were the good reviews ever accurate! We came in for an...More

If you want authentic Mexican food in Effingham area then try this place! I love their Jade Burrito. The prices are good. The only negative is the size of the restaurant is small and fills up quickly.
