WORST Mexican Food EVER 8/5/2011

I went craving some good Mexican food, & what I got was JUNK!!! I asked for fajitas & all I got was something that tasted like liver & a lot of bell pepper & onions. This place does not know what Mexican food REALLY is, if you gave this place a good review I would suggest you travel to Texas. This place is OVER RATED & OVER PRICED! I feel sorry for the people who go & enjoy this place, even Taco Bell is more authentic than this JUNK!!! I now know that Portland does not have good Mexican places to eat. This place caters to people that have NO IDEA what Mexican food really is, & by the way I'm not Mexican I'm Colombian & I know what REAL Mexican food is. THIS IS JUST JUNK!!!!!!!!! more

Good food and good drinks 3/22/2009

The place is always busy and we now know why. The food was not Americanized like many Mexican restaurants. It may not be the best-looking food, but it tastes good. The decor is a little on the busy side, but it?s entertaining to look around. Pros: food and drinks Cons: decor more

Terrible 1/6/2009

I have looked everywhere for good Mexican food in Portland and Beaverton, as far as I am concerned it does not exist. This is a prime example of Mexican food gone terribly wrong. I lived in Texas for most of my life, and I understand the difference between Tex-Mex and Mexican food. I have had both, on all levels. From the fine dining, to the little taco truck. Please don't go here, it is not what Mexican food is, Mexican food can be something sublime. I will call this what it is, North-Mex, and it does not work. Please reconsider if you ever find you yourself attracted to this place. Pros: Looks like a good mexican food restaurant Cons: Isn't more

An awesome ""bucket"" drink (Cazuela!), fast hot food and delicious recipes! 3/11/2008

I love the asada and colorado beef personally. Pepita's is my preferred mexican hang-out where they know my drink orders and the food is always delicious. I have never had a bad experience there, except sometimes the staff is shorthanded. Pros: Good Drinks Cons: Service Lacking more

Use to be better. 1/9/2008

I have eaten at Pepitas many times over the last 4 years or so. The last 3 times or so, my wife and I have said ""No more"", and after our last dinner there, we won't be returning. I don't know if there was a management change, or if the cooking staff has turned over, but the quality of the food has really declined. Pros: Lively interior Cons: Cocktails, food more

Cheerful Folk Decor, Friendly Waiters. Expensive Drinks. Fajitas Were Very Sweet. 2/14/2007

Very colorful folkart decorations. Attentive staff. Fast service. Adequate portions. Moderate food prices. more

best burritos 11/9/2006

I don't know what the other reviewers were talking about. I go here often and the food is always excellent as is the service. The chicken burrito is terrific with huge chunks of lean chicken, not the usual greasy and fatty chicken you get at other Mexican restaurants. If you like good Mexican food I highly recommend giving Pepita's a try. Pros: food, value, service Cons: ambience more

Worst Mexican food I have had here 8/18/2006

I went to this place based on the 6 good reviews I had read. I don't know where the previous reviewers have eaten Mexican food at..but if this place ranks as good to them..then they have not ever had good Mexican food. Cons: horrible food, bad margaritas more

not authentic mexican 7/26/2006

The sauces were poor. Service was lacking. I'm starting to think all the good Mexican food is in Hillsboro. Pros: decorations, no wait Cons: food, service more

We got sick, Avoid on a hot day. 7/23/2006

It can taste great, but not at the expense of your health. My husband and I got sick from eating there (I'll spare the details). Furthermore, on a hot day, their air conditioner cannot keep up with the customers. It felt like a sauna! Pros: Usually friendly Cons: Their air conditioner is not well suited. Their food can be contaminated more


The margaritas are great and the service is usually really good as long as there is a supervisor on duty. Last visit here I brought friends from out of town to ""the best mexican in town"". I was totally embarrassed by the food,and the service sucked! Pros: stiff margarita Cons: service more

Best Margarita's in town 5/12/2006

If you like a stiff Maragarita, this is the place for you. Get the ""grande"", you won't be disappointed Pros: Strong drinks, Inexpensive, Great food Cons: Small, Service is slow more

Perfect! 4/24/2005

I'm from California, married to a Chicano, and have been around people who cook great Mexican food all of my life. Since we have moved here we've been to a couple of ""traditional"" Mexican food restaurants and have found them to be lacking. If I want American-ized Mexican food I might as well go to Taco Bell or Chevys. But Pepitas was different. No one concentrated on making the food pretty, only good. No good, wonderful. My husband and I ordered a shrimp cocktail and a combination plate with taquitos and flautas. The shrimp cocktail so good! It had enormous shrimp and cilantro and avocado in it and the taste was perfect. The flautas and taquitos were perfect as well. The beans weren't horribly watered down and bland, but had a great consistency and very flavorful. The rice was also very delicious. We finally found our perfect Mexican restaurant! Pros: Everything! Cons: Nothing! more

A treasure in suburbia 2/5/2005

My wife and I ventured away from the confines of SE Portland for some mundane errands and we came across Pepitas. Wow. I had the Posole, which is a pork and hominy soup that they prepare on the weekends only. It could be described as the mexican equivilent of pho, complete with a variety of garnishes and spices, and it is worth the drive from anywhere in the Portland metro area. The wife had a medley of tacos that were top notch, as well. In a landscape dominated with chains like Baja Fresh, Burger King and Quiznos, this place is a real treasure, and we will certainly make the trip out to the burbs for the sole purpose of eating here again. Pros: Food more

Mexican Delight 10/30/2002

My wife and I loved it! Great Margeritas, food and service! The chips and salsa was to die for! When your ready to ask for another bowl of chips they are bringing your food! My wife had the tacos/Burrito combo and I had fajitas. Both were great, you must try!! We just got back from Mexico and we felt as though we were sitting in Mexico again! Pros: Not Crowded, Great service, Wonderful Chips more

Homemade food, Clean, Good portions 8/1/2002

Ever wonder what soft tacos with corn tortillas taste like? Or large succulent chucks of soft pork in chile verde sauce? Refried beans that DONT come from a can? Pepita's makes exceptional Mexican food, offers nice portions at a reasonable price, and serves it up in a clean, friendly environment. If you find yourself craving good Mexican food in Beaverton, Pepita's is the place to go. more

Super beans & Yummy Tacos 7/25/2002

Talk about awesome authentic mexican beans! Great tacos...this place is great AND reasonably priced! Try it! The servers are attentive and remember you when you come back! The Sauza margaritas are good (rocks) - and served in a huge glass...but a little spendy. Service is fast, too! Pros: super service, sauza margs, authentic beans more
