This was our first time here and the good was fabulous! The service was excellent and prices are reasonable. The menu has a wide variety to choose from. Our food was hot and everything tasted very good! More...
So the our little family went to Destin, Fl, for vacation this past summer,(for the second time) we went to another Pepito's location the first time around and we had just about the same experience as we did this time around, let me start with the chips and queso, it was really good just like fist time, our server was very friendly, wife and I got a pitcher of Texas margaritas and was having a good time, eventually we got hungry the wife ordered some wings(I know it's a Mexican place but whatever) I went ahead and ordered my favorite the BIG S burrito, I got it made out of steak man the smell of the green salsa that was on top and the melted cheese it was just amazing, I'm a pretty bud dude and I'm going to tell you right now I could not finish that thing to save my life, the year before I tried to finish it but I only got about a quarter there and had to take it to go this time around I ate half of it and had to take the rest home, it tasted amazing the next morning when I warmed it up in the microwave!! Anyways if you are looking for some GOOD Tex-Mex Mexican food this is your spot to go!! The second location is as good as this one so you will be ok! More...
Everything we had here was delicious. Staff was friendly and service was fast. Absolutely no complaints!
Paula Brown Davis
Best chimichangas ive ever had. Nice friendly wait staff. Definitely on my list when I return. Thank you Pepitos.
Delicious food! Their Queso was bomb!! Loved my chicken quesadilla. I can't remember what my husband had but I tried it and it was amazing as well (I know that's not very helpful ). Will definitely be back when we visit Destin again. I would recommend this restaurant! Reasonable prices too!! More...
Excellent all around. The food, service and margaritas were stellar. Don't make the mistake and eat too many chips. The portions are so good, you don't want to be too full.
We had a great time had excellent service
Customer service was awesome! Very friendly environment
the food was is always great and I spend lots of money here but today I am not satisfied o called in my order and the lady misunderstood me.so I brought in my receipt from last visit because the prices were different. for one she treated me.like she wanted me to pay for the messed up order then reorder and pay. o always ask for extra cheese on my food because I do not like dry rice well today I wasted my money More...
Great food and service. We love coming here for the best Mexican around ❤️
Came here for my birthday and loved it. Staff was super nice. We had a party of 10 people and they treated everyone good. I had the loaded ground beef burrito and it was absolutely delicious. Pretty much everyone like their meal except one person in my party who got a fish scallop and shrimp fajhetia combo. The scallop was so small you didn't even notice it and the fish he said wasn't good. He liked the shrimp tho. Other then that everyone else loved their food and devoured it. Hit the spot. Also don't tell them it's your birthday. My parents did it for me and I found it super embarrassing. They give you a large Mexican hat (can't spell it) and they put whipped cream on your face. But definitely come here with friends or family do your hungry and in the mood for Mexican. Food was at a decent price too More...
Great food-very fresh, atmosphere, service. Recommend!
Just good food large portions
Excelente comida,muy amable todo el personal...lo recomiendo 100%
Flavor of all our dishes delicious!Something for everyone! Highly recommend.
One of the good restaurant fresh Food is authentic Mexican food I loved
El sabor de la comida y los precios excekentes
Someone is obviously driving a campaign to ruin Pepitos Ratings on the internet... Scorned Customer... You Suck as a Human! Pepitos is that Step up from fast food, with street tacos, fat burritos, and standard Mexican food... Always been tasty, as good as I remember, West Coast “Yellow Sign” Mexican (Roberto’s and the like)... Always check your Bill, anywhere you go... Sounds like Management has tried to address the campaign... Trust Me... You get what you would expect from a step up, inexpensive Mexican. Hk More...
su comida es riquisima y el personal muy amable
Excellent service great food
Truly authentic Mexican food. Great margaritas too!
Family atmosphere staff great
Ivan Mimi Murillo
Seafood! The Big "S" burrito and Dos X Amber drafts.
Good food and atmosphere is a nice place ! with the authentic flavor !! Delicious seafood !!
Theresa was awesome! First timer, visiting from outta state. pina coladas were awesome, fish street tacos.. YUM
Didn't have to wait too long for a table!The chips and salsa were awesome! I got the Arroz chicken, and it didn't have enough queso on it for me, but it was still really good. Nice place to go if you're tired of seafood. More...
Really good margaritas and quesadillas. The salsa was amazing maybe the best ever. Nachos are OK burritos were OK Again the margaritas are excellent and I'm buying the the shirt too funny
I've eaten here many times at lunch, but just had an awesome experience when I brought my large family in for dinner. Staff was awesome and made it easy for us (with 9 kids) to enjoy our dinner. Food was fantastic, large portions and everything tasted great! More...
Fuck.. where do I start. Well with the appetizer. Ordered the 3 cheese dip. Cheese Chorizo, bean and cheese and reg. Chorizo cheese dip is where it's at. So good. Real tortilla chips make the difference as well. Had a "fresh margarita" knocked my dick in the dirt. I'm a fat brown man that can fuck up a Rita. But this one don't play. Was better than expected the spicy powder and salt rim on the Rita was nice. I ordered some street tacos as my main meal. Pastor, lengua and chorizo. Mutherfucken tacos made me happy. It was really good Mexican. I eat a lot of Mexican and this is a great find. Wish they had one back home. Reasonably priced, but what is the real value is the flavor. The whole fam was happy. Dill ser return. More...
WOW! The best authentic Mexican food we've had since moving here three years ago- Our server Flora was highly attentive. Food came out fast hot and full of flavor. Premium large margarita was huuuuuge and too much for me to finish, so it's definitelyly meant to be shared. A little mix up with that, but management took care of it. Mary was amazing she made sure we left satisfied and that would be an understatement!-Definitely repeat customers here! We have had Mexican food in Arizona, Texas, California, And this is the most authentic! More...
Jose Guadalupe Hernandez
Very good service , I would recommend it, great food and tasteful margaritas
Great Mexican food. Very accommodating with friendly service. Inexpensive place to have lunch own a cold drink on a hot Florida afternoon.
Excellent service. Walked in at 9:50pm party of 10 and took us in. We were coming from Que Pasa Mexican. They refused to seat us because it was 9:37 pm and they close at 10pm. Thank you Pepitos, service and food was great!!! I will recommend your restaurant for sure! More...
Busy hours seem to be 5:30pm to 7:30pm- not that much of a wait. Friendly staff, reasonable prices, large portions, good happy hour, authentic Mexican with some atypical entrees. Very family friendly.
Great Mexican food along with excellent service!! Anyone visiting destin should give it a try. All 6 of us were pleased with the food and our waiter was GREAT! Definitely family and kid friendly while also great for adults! More...
Our family stopped in for dinner. We loved the chips and salsa, Texana fajitas and burrito with grilled chicken. Our waters were refilled as needed, and we got a second basket of chips and salsa. Good food and good service!
Our waiter, Carlos Noah, was so nice and very courteous! We had a wonderful dining experience with excellent food. And compared to a lot of other restaurants around the area, the prices are great! Definitely must try one of their margaritas while you’re there. More...
Typical Mexican food but delicious food, fiancé and I and our daughter went here with family for dinner while we were in town. I ordered the street taco asadas (2 tacos) with a side of rice, it was delicious but the margarita we ordered as well was made way to strong and we could barely finish our food. Service was okay, as they brought another tables food out first when we ordered before them (rude) and when our food was brought out the waitress forgot my daughters dinner (mama bear not happy). Would we go again probably but maybe just for chips and salsa as they continuously brought some out to our tables. More...
Came with some friends tonight and had the best red snapper ever! Ordered the whole red snapper and black beans. Unbelievable meal. Fresh and tasty. Highly recommended! Also the Mexican food here is the best ever. More...
Good food and quick service.
Food was pretty good and the service was great. I would have gave it a 5 but took a little longer than expected to get our food (party of 9) but all in all it was a good experience. We will definitely give them another chance. More...
Shrimp fajitas were awesome. We also tried a steak sope very good as well. Guacamole was fresh good mixture of creamy with some chunks of avocado tomato and onion. If you like spicy ask for some hot salsa very good.. More...
Excelente la Comida y la atención de muy buena calidad
Good chimichangas. Good enchiladas. Good tacos. Good margaritas. Everyone left this restaurant happily!You can bring a large group. There were supposed to be 11 in our group, but 3 couldn't come. At least 11 of us could be seated. They serve bottomless chips and salsa. Then once you order, your food come in a pretty decent time. Be prepared for limited parking space if you come during their peak time. But I think everyone will be happy eating here if you love good Mexican cuisine! More...
The food is Amazing & the wait staff are so kind & attentive. Very fast service! Nice & clean restaurant as well. We will definitely be back!
Stacey Roberts Green
I recommend every part ! The food is tremendous service is wonderful very attentive
Great food, large portions, great margaritas!
Go Vols V.
This is our favorite Mexican restaurant!! We make sure to eat here every time we go to Destin. The fajitas are amazing and the margaritas are excellent. Last time we were there in May our waitress was a sweetheart and very attentive More...
This was our first ever visit to Pepito's and let me tell you we were nothing short of IMPRESSED. This place has the most delicious Mexican food including some AMAZING Shrimp Fajitas - sooo tasty (and this is coming from someone who considers themselves to be very particular so that's saying something). The shrimp and veggies are so fresh and they had lots of flavor. My husband ordered a Burrito (with Grilled Chicken) which he completely devoured and my father had the House Enchiladas (Shredded Chicken) which were also mouthwatering. They even have an excellent kids menu with lots of variety including a kids Corn Dog, Chicken Nuggets and Mac N Cheese (not just Taco's and Burrito's or Quesadillas). There are just too many positive things to list here, I could go on and on. The staff is very friendly and attentive so they will be sure to take good care of you during your visit. If you've read this far then you definitely need to check it out! Muchos Gracias and ENJOY your next visit at Pepito's. PS - the salsa and cheese dip are equally amazing too! More...
What a magnificent find on the beach. If you are craving Mexican fare, this is the place to visit.There is outdoor seating, but it doesn't have the greatest view and smokers were prevalent. We elected to sit inside for A/C.The table got a large pitcher of margaritas and they were delicious. My brother-in-law thought they were watered down or weak, but they were perfect for me.The chips and salsa was great. The queso dip was creamy and delicious.I got a shredded beef burrito which was wonderful and HUGE. I brought home 3/4 of it and will probably get 2 more meals out of it.We'll definitely be back before leaving for home. More...
Amy Freiberg Miller
Stopped in tonight while on vacation in Destin. great food and even better service ❤️
Great food at a great price. June 2019 their happy hour went until 7pm (great house margaritas). Will come back next we're visiting Destin
We were in the mood for Mexican food. Read reviews and decided on Pepito's. Although we passed about 3 other mexican restaurants on the way to Pepito's it was worth the 30 minute trip. Chips & salsa was awesome!! Highly recommend the queso dip as well. Food was excellent. Our waitress (who looked like Deanery's Targaryen) was excellent and really on top of things as busy as the place was. Could barely find a parking spot but we were seated very quickly. We will definitely be back here any time we come back for vacation! Great job! More...
Janice Leeser Chambers
Great food, service and drinks! Yummy!
authentic cuisine, you won't regret it.
Very flavorful. Friendly staff.
2 Thumbs up!! Awesome steak fajitas, awesome service. Will return! My daughter ate her entire meal! Lol don't often happen.
Excelente calidad en sus comidas y en el servicio rápido Cortez y amable
Great food, nice servers, and not too expensive...Great chips and salsa, and tasty cuisine...Thumbs up!
the best shrimp cocktail and the coldest draft beer, just in Pepitos at all panhandle
This is the best Mexican restaurant I have ever Ate at, Excellent service fresh food I ordered the fajitas it was humongous with lots of meat shrimp just loaded I would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody and I have ate a lot of Mexican restaurants that this is the best
Stephanie Brown Myers
House Enchiladas were terrific and the service was great. Best meal we've had in Destin.
I gotta tell you, we weren't really planning on eating Mexican on a trip to the beach...but a craving for margaritas turned into a solid lunch for the family. The service was top notch and the food was good and plentiful More...
Found this treasure on yelp. Had good reviews and was not too far from our condo. Which is great because traffic is not good around here LOL we came in at a time that was only slightly busy. We were seated right away. It took a while for our waitress to come over and greet us. She was very upbeat and knowledgeable about the menu. My husband ordered a beer. I stuck with water. The first test for me of a good Mexican restaurant, the chips and salsa. These were very good. No kidding, we have left a place before because the salsa and chips are bad. Why go on? We decided to share the Kearny Asada plate with and cheese enchilada on the side. He got flour tortillas I got corn. Everything was so good. If I he told me it was made from ribeye. Delicious! Came with tasty beans and rice, great garnishes that included avocado. We ordered grilled jalapeños on the side. Always love those to spice it up :-) for dessert we had the flan. Here is where they failed for me, the custard was totally overcooked. What should've been a delicious caramel sauce was burnt. Custard hard. The garnish was nice.All in all I would recommend Pepitos to anyone in this gorgeous beach area. More...
Great restaurant and an amazing food
Love this place Dont go ever time I am in town because of its location.I love the mojarra FridaThey used to have a pick your combo but it is gone now.
Good service and great food!
First visit, first impression, greeter was nice, seating was immediately, food was good. Waiter did not bring my complete meal, no refill on my Tea, I had to get a couple of other employees to bring rest of my food and a refill of Tea. I would check out some other Mexican Restaurants before going back here. I would have to want Mexican food and think long and hard before going back to this restaurant. More...
Marie Martello Runfola
Great wait staff and food
Courtney Cuenca Smith
Love the margaritas!..and the nachos
B Ann P.
OMG, the best experience ever. The food was amazing. I had two street tacos, steak and chicken. And we came during Cinco de Mayo had an amazing time! Christian was great!! Giselle was soooooo awesome. She was amazing!!! More...
Food was good, nothing really special but nothing to complain about. We both had quesadillas, one chicken and one shredded beef. A little too much meat and not very much cheese, but still good. Service was fast. Salsa was really yummy. More...
We order to go from here quite a bit and every single time our food is absolutely delicious. Not only so, but huge portions for the money. I can never finish my entire meal but it's always so good that I wish I could! (I recommend the nachos, so yummy) More...
Food is always good! Friendly staff!
Mary Reyes Orozco
good service and nice staff. manager was very nice
Angie Boggs Foster
We were very pleased with our food and service today! We were not pleased with the automatic gratuity added to the ticket when we told the cashier we had a tip on the table! Only to look at the receipt and see they added a $15 tip to the bill!!!! We believe in tipping and had already placed a good tip in the table!!! The food was great, hope greed doesn’t ruin the business. The waitress was awesome! She deserved to be tipped!!! We know she received what we placed on table, just hope she gets her share of the extra $15 that was added to our bill. Plus we were a group of only 6!!! Not 10-15 people! More...
I went there tonight for the first time I highly recommend that place. I ordered the steak burrito. It was big, juicy and tasty. I recommend it. The server, staff, and everyone else is amazing. There's no waiting in line. You get seated when you walk in. One of my customers work there. There's a bar, t.v., and alot of people in the restaurant. Best service ever. More...
It wasn't good... it was DELICIOUS! We came as a group of 10 to celebrate my momma's birthday and they sat us down right away. Lots of great options to choose from and they had my favorite drink, HORCHATA! The chips and salsa were also a hit. My top picks were the following: sopa de marisco, grilled gulf shrimp, chimichanga, Pepito's Burger and fried red snapper. Luckily, these were all ordered by someone in the group so I could taste a little of each. Our server, Jesus took good care of us and brought the gang over to sing happy birthday to my mom. More...
Very good food, I highly recommend the fajitas ❤
the food was authentic and delicious! I enjoyed the salsa it was very fresh, so I purchased 2 quarts to take back home with me. Love the hospitality!!!@
Most excellent poblano peppers!!! Make sure you order the medium or large margarita!!!
I would definitely recommend Pepito's! I came in on a Thursday night for a weekend trip from Atlanta (where we have really good Mexican food). Carlos was our server and kindly spoke to my grandmother in Spanish (bonus points)! The food was great and came out really quickly despite the restaurant being fairly busy during dinner hours. The fajita plates were huge and they accommodated all of our requests. More...

The service was great, the waitress was amazing
Christy Wright Terry
Love this place!!! Food is great! Service is awesome!!
On vacation looking for some Tex mex and oh boy did we find it! Not only was the food so goood!! The wait staff and floor manager was great! So friendly and attentive and made sure we were happy! I had the enchiladas with ground beef and red sauce and my husband had grilled fish. We started with guacamole and it was good and you can't beat an amazing pitcher of margaritas! More...
Amazing authentic Mexican food on the gulf coast. Great service all around. Large portions for the price.
Great food and service plus good price point .
Hands down, this is the best Mexican food I've ever had! The price is reasonable and the service is great! When you visit Destin, you will be missing out in you don't eat at Pepito's!!
Standard Mexican fare, solidly executed. The Happy Hour margarita special lets you get two big margeritas for just $9
Eat here often and consistently good. Staff is fun and helpful.
Awesome place. Kind of hard to find. Well worth it. Extremely nice staff. Great option to the well advertised places on the main strip.
Always nice. ESP. The Fresh Margaritas.
Maureen Fox Bierman
Amazing salsa, fresh, delicious and the chicken fajitas are the best in town.
First time eating here and it was pretty good. Had the fajita combo and the house margaritas.
Atmosphere, food and staff!! Especially Gysell!!! She is such a wonderful young woman and probably one of the best servers we've ever had anywhere!! ❤
Great service. Food delivered quick and tasty. Happy hour is a plus.
Was lots of fun great food
Great service, delicious food!
Excellent Mexican. And we go to Cozumel México several times a year. I tried the enchiladas and tamal. Yummy. Nice fresh tasting refried beans. I really liked the service too. Manager stopped by and made sure everything was great. This place was added to our list of places to go back to and it's hard to make the list. Oh. And we got a pitcher of the tropical margarita. loved it. I cannot wait to come back. More...
great Mexican food with fabulous service
Pam Kelly Moore
Awesome, fresh food and tasty margaritas! Huge menu. The staff was great! It was our first visit, we will be back.
My husband and I had our last meal here for our beach trip. Everyone was so nice. From the front door staff to the wait staff. Very pleasant and attentive. The food was all so fresh and delicious! The Margaritas were fantastic. Will return this summer with our whole family for vacation! More...
Huge Burrito filled and delicious Give it a try
amazzzzzzzinggggg! so much flavor and REAL authentic cuisine!
Friendly staff and good food.
The S Burrito! Big enough for two!!
This place has got in going ON. This is the Mexican restaurant I'll drive to from Pensacola, or Dothan, or Seaside... wherever I end up, Pepitos gets thrown in the mix because I have never had a bad experience here! Not to mention, my family and I always leave with the best memories from this fine establishment. The staff is always super friendly and patient. The food is always on point. The margaritas are always delicious (and great value!!). The restaurant is easily accessible and clean (and recently updated). The salsa and the queso are both equally delicious!! The chips are more of a 7 , whereas everything else for me is a 10. I think if the chips were warm that would be a game changer. They tasted a bit old when I ate there on a Sunday night. But that's ok- the rest makes up for it. And I'll definitely be coming back from Wisconsin soon to give it yet another shot (and maybe take a shot) ;) More...
The food was pretty good. Good vegetarian options as well. Highly recommend trying their margarita!!
fresh and delicious food. great service
I was pleasantly surprised. The service is the only think that hurt a bit. The service, all 3 times i visited, was just a bit less then desired. The food is quite good and the burrito is the size of my arm!I will come back when in town. More...
todo Machín muy buen servicio y buena comida ❤
Amazing food and great staff. We went there really hungry and this was THE place to get filled up. Large portions and tasty.
Great food and service! Had flautas and street tacos. The fresh tortillas were terrific. Flautas were by far the best I've ever had. Salsa was amazing as well. Hot sauce for the street tacos was on point. Will be back! More...
Our Double Birthday Party of 10 was seated and served right away with Margaritas and chips 'n' salsa. Bar & wait staff were fun and full of jokes and the Manager, Jazmine, was Amazing! I'll be back and Will definitely recommend this place to others. More...
Ashley Jordan Reaves
Awesome margaritas and the tacos were the bomb.
Oh my the jumbo Margarita was definitely a jumbo. The Chicken fajitas were outstanding. Took home enough for a second meal. Service was a blue ribbon quality. We will definitely return before we leave Destin. More...
Tina Camacho Gromlovits
good food...chlie rellenos had a very different kind of batter than I'm used to not as authentic I thought. their street tacos were very good though
Davon Marie Fox
Delicious food, salsa, good inside atmosphere. Lacks good outside seating.
excellent food and service
All the above, great food and atmosphere and reasonably priced.
Way to go Pepito's!!!Staff was more than accommodating. Fast service. Very welcoming to families. Great food. The plating of the food was something I was not expecting. Very nice.
The very best Mexican I've had since in Mexico. The corn quesadillas was thick and homemade with tons of chicken! Delicious! The tomatillo sauce was very tasty and homemade! Reasonable prices and large portions. More...
Jennifer Loyd Simpson
The best food and margaritas I’ve ever had
Lunch was awesome and the margaritas were even better. Do yourself a favor and get the hamburguesa del sol. The absolute best burger I've ever had!! I know getting a burger at a Mexican place sounds off but it's seriously out of this world. I go out of my way to come back here when on vacation just to get the burger. More...
Best Mexican food I've ever had! Bold flavors, seasoned perfectly, and the portions were huge! We will definitely come back the next time we visit. We had the grilled chicken enchiladas smothered in queso with black beans and rice and a grilled steak burrito smothered in queso. The best! Service was excellent as well. More...
Always a favorite for us when we are in the Destin area. Today the staff went out of the way to make a seafood sopa for my wife. Great service & great food.
Stopped in here for a casual dinner with my wife and daughter. Pretty good food for reasonable prices. Chicken tortilla soup was notedly outstanding.
best margarita in town. great food.
I’m not sure how this place has such low ratings !! Every time I’ve come here the food has been amazing and fresh! The service has always been good and fast!! The margaritas are delicious and the bomb!! I’ve had lots of Mexican food and this place amazing!! I love this place!! More...
I'd give it a 5 if the margarita had a more alcohol in them, didn't have much tequila at all. But food was excellent.
We love Pepitos’s excellent food! Great service.
We visited while on vacation! The atmosphere was nice, clean and we were seated quickly. We went to have chips and dip and drinks, the chips were definitely lackluster. Thick straight from a bag yellow chips. The queso was pretty good. The menu is HUGE! Lots of options. Street tacos were good, make sure to say pico on the side...it was so spicy hot I wasn't able to eat the shrimp taco. My friends got chimichanga which was good and the steak quesadillas were pretty good too. The margarita was super sweet. Servers were friendly and a manager stopped by our table to check on us! Pepitos would have five stars if the chips were a little better! More...
Great food and atmosphere
great food and service. staff was very attentive even though she socialized with other guests behind us.
Excellent service, great food and drinks. A customer since 2004. The best!
Awesome margaritas and food
food was excellent!!!! staff was outstanding! would come back again many times
Biggest burrito I’ve ever seen!
excellent food and service
Food was really good and staff was professional and nice!!
Mark W. Weedon
Great food and atmosphere!!!
Great food, service was so/so... server didnt seem to enthused about serving us.
Johnnie E. Briggs
Niceville and Destin locations are great food and service. The Ft Walton Beach Location, food is ok but the service is bad! I drive to one of the other location to dine at Pepitos!! More...
Excelente atención,Buena comida bien servida, Precios justos,buen sazón, pasó el manager a ver en las mesas que estuviéramos bien atendidos, o si nos hacía falta algo, Porque el lugar estaba muy concurrido,no se daban abasto los meseros, creo que eso habla bien del restaurante. que sean serviciales y te den un buen trato More...
Great Food and Service!!!
We came back again-since we are here for vacay! Any beat the prices. The salsa is amazing-it's legit salsa with onions and cilantro. The street tacos are authentic. This isn't Tex-Mex that we have back home in Dallas. We love it. Great service-no wait to be seated. We will be back again next trip! More...
Good Mexican food, been going for years now. Only drawback is they recently changed their menu and stopped some of their great drink specials. Me and my fiancé used to go at least once a week but since the changes we only go once a month or so. More...
Delicious food and excellent service Gisele was an excellent waitress..Reasonable prices, we definitely coming back
It was real good food excellent service I recommend this place.
Edward Taylor Connor Jr.
Good value and great service.
Super diverse staff and really friendly staff, and the food was really good! Came here from Texas so I was shocked to find really good Mexican food. The did everything in a great timely fashion, loved it!! More...
Courtney Eustice Tanner
Excellent food and great staff! The Big S Burrito was delicious
We loved Pepito's so much we went twice during our week long vacation. Both times we had great food and service. The sweet tea was on point as well. We will be returning next summer when visiting Destin. More...
Kade Duplechain Kelley
We were visiting from Louisiana. Delicious food, fast and friendly service. Hostess greeted us immediately and showed us to our seats. Waitress showed up right away and took care of drinks and appetizers. As soon as appetizers came out, Main entrées were put in. Food came shortly and drinks were replenished. We were in and out in less than an hour. Would definitely recommend. More...
Love it! That hot sauce for my shrimp taco was amazing as was the margarita
Took my grandson & I there, braved the hideous traffic & all (locals). My 1 choice meal came out cold hard & inedible. Waited a longggg time for the replacement meal ( my grandson was almost done eating) but it was very good...I hv the fear factor of sending crap bk to the cook in lieu of what they might do to 2nd choice!! More...
We were visiting the area from Texas and we wanted some Mexican food. After some google search we decided to try this place.I have no complaints the food was good and also the drinks. I recommend this place and will definitely come back on my next visit to the Fort Walton Beach/ Destin area. More...
We were a table of 8. Chips and salsa took a while to come out, the queso we ordered came before the chips. Food portions were big and it all came out together. Food was tasty, street tacos were OK nothing special. More...
Muy buen servicio lo mejor que ahorre agua y tome margaritas�
Great place and very kid friendly. Their food portion are really big. Had the pastor torta and it was delicious. The wait staff works really well as a team. I'll be going back the next time I'm in Destin More...
Excelente servicio y la comida muy buena, recomendable 100%
The best Mexican food in Destin. We have been here 5 times and we consistently have the same experience. The blanco queso is delicious. The margaritas are mighty and strong. The fajita beef steak was rated as never had better in entire life and we are from okla were the cows are plentiful. Chicken fajita burrito was exceptional and very large. Shredded chicken enchiladas with tomatillo sauce was so so good. Chicken fajitas come in as a perfect 10. If you are hungry from a day at the beach, this will be the spot that will satisfy the Mexican lover soul. More...
Drove six hours for dinner love this place. Great food and margaritas at a good price.
Food was excellent. Service was great. Perfect Mexican restaurant while visiting Destin.
Delicious and relaxing as always!
Servers name was Francisco and he was a kind and genuine guy. He served 6 of us and was absolutely great! Every time me and all of my friends vacation here we will come here and recommend Francisco!!!
Robert Prather Jr
Everything was outstanding! Excellent service! We will be back!
Juli Aviles Huerta
La comida Deliciosa, y las recomendaciones de la mesera muy buenas, el servicio EXCELENTE....
Excellent food! Excellent service!
Andrea Lizbeth Ramos
One of the best part of my vacation!!!!
Delicious food! The service was a little slow but we were on vacation and they were slammed. Don't pay attention to the bad reviews. This place's food is great. If your in a super big rush then this might not be the place to go but if your up for 2 for 1 drinks, complimentary chips and salsa, and enjoying your company then this is the place for you. More...
We've been coming here for the past 2 years and they never let us down! Their tacos are so good! Definitely one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the city!
Absolutely loved it! Had a whole lot of different items to choose from, I have never seen so many different choices on a Mexican menu. And they give you a lot of food.
The food is so good & the Margarita selections on the menu is awesome.
Had fish and shrimp tacos. Incredible!!!
I liked it a lot. Had 3 street tacos (fish, steak, chicken) all very good. Also had a Moscow mule that was very good
We always eat here when in Destin. Have had veg enchiladas, veg quesadillas; shrimp quesadillas, shrimp fajitas, chicken fajita nachos. Have enjoyed them all.
Travis L Sims
Best Mexican food ever, and that’s a big statement for me. This Indiana boy will be back �����
My wife and I really enjoyed the food. The service was great and I tried to concur the Big S Burritio. It concurred me. Had to take it home. Other than than. The steak and chicken were excellent and I have no other complaints. I would definitely come back and recommend this place. More...
This place is legit!! Good service, friendly staff, super impressive menu. Had the fried snapper and fresh margarita, did not disappoint! My new go to place in Destin for comida mexicana More...
Great food good staff. My family enjoyed this place. The street tacos are awesome! Short and sweet.
Went with the family and Food was good for the most part. I really enjoyed the chipotle wings and the Mar Y Tierra (Surf & Turf) Filet of fish, Shrimp, Steak & Chicken. My wife did not like her Chicken & Steak fajita at all. She stated it was too bland and not flavorful at all. I still give them 4 stars because it was probably just a bad day for the cook. More...
Thank you my family and I loved it you will see us again :)

Great Mexican Food! Authentic Tacos al Pastor!!! Very fancy too!!! Will always come back while on vacation here in Destin!!!
Our favorite place for fajitas... Now our absolute favorite place for seafood fajitas. Mahi mahi, shrimp, scallops ... OUTSTANDING! Sara was our server... She was a great addition to the experience... See y'all again soon ! More...
I love this place!! The food is so good !! Authentic Mexican food!
Good times at Pepitos, I love this place � friendly and well managed! Best stake and shrimp tacos in town. ��������������
The food was so fresh with excellent ingredients. Generous portions and very reasonably priced. Our server was very knowledgeable and the food was ready very fast. Definitely return!
Amazing food and drinks plus the best customer service in Destin Florida!

Found our favorites on their new menu. Waitress was polite and very helpful.
Visiting from Tucson, AZ, I found Pepito's to be pretty authentic. The service was friendly and the restaurant was clean.

My husband and I are now locals and we’re looking for a good Mexican restaurant. We stopped by middle of the afternoon which is our favorite time to eat out. Happy Hour had started and ordered medium size house Margaritas. Delicious! But, I sure didn’t need that second one! They packed a punch. I am not much of a drinker, but do like Margaritas with Mexican food. The medium was huge. I ordered Nachos and had enough for four people, but I ate them all. They were loaded with shredded beef and wonderful! My husband always orders tamales and said this was the best he has ever had. Again, loaded with meat. We will definitely be back. I will either order something smaller or get a to-go box. And only ONE Margarita for me! More...
Before I moved this was my number one restaurant. I used to eat here atleast once a week. The food, service and prices was consistently wonderful. At all the locations, too! I used to get the vegetarian options but after awhile I starting get the quesadillas. Everytime I come back to destin, this is still my go to. Still wonderful!! More...
We love it! One of our family favorites! Great food and service and reasonable prices ;)
Great chips and salsa we always get a couple of margarita, Sharon loves there taco and I love there carnitas, great staff great atmosphere and great food can't beat that! �
We went here expecting good food and horrible service. We were very pleasantly surprised that we got very good food and service! I'll start with the food. To begin, my grandma was Mexican. We make beans, tacos,tortillas, quesadillas, burritos, etc. all from scratch in my house. This is authentic Mexican with the exception of the corn tortillas for the tacos. They use the pre-formed kind. Not a deal breaker, because I got the tostada, and they use real corn tortilla shells for that. The beans are definitely made from scratch. My only complaint was that my husband's chimichanga was so spicy he couldn't eat it. He's generally not much of a wimp on spicy food, either. If you don't LOVE spicy food, ask for the pico de gallo on the side. Now for the service. Again, based on the reviews, I was expecting to be ignored. I was thrilled with our server. Her name was Anastasya (I'm sure I butchered that, but that's what I recall from the receipt). She was attentive, but not overbearing. All of our orders came quickly and they were all correct. When I asked to bag up the leftover chips, she brought us a fresh bag. Nothing out of the ordinary, but definitely more than I was expecting. Overall, we had a great experience. We're going home to Orlando tomorrow, or else I would definitely come again. More...

the best food ever and wonderful customer service!!

Like most have said we were here on vacation and had eaten seafood every night it happened to be my husband’s birthday and I mentioned it to the waiter so they brought out deep fried ice cream with chocolate sauce and whipped topping and they sang to him it was very good food also.
The food here was very good. Would have been a5 star review but for the service. Only 3 other tables seated at 4:00 on Wednesday afternoon. Not exactly rush hour. Got menus plopped down on the table then waited almost 10 minutes to have drink order taken. Then server came back a while later with drinks and asked if we were ready to order. Umm, yes. He did not make eye contact while taking our order, instead talking to people as they entered the business and in general just looking out the window. Then when he went to put our order in (literally 5 steps away) he yelled back at our table to ask again what we wanted. Food came out after an extended wait but was good and hot, so that's a plus. It's a good thing we didn't want anything more. No one came back to ask if everything was okay or if we needed anything else. Waiter was busy talking with other workers and watching tv. Not a good experience except that the food was good. I guess they depend on the food to lure customers back, because these same concerns seem to be an ongoing issue. Maybe it's a family business and no one wants to upset family More...
Good food, good service, friendly staff, reasonable prices, parking lot is a little too small.

We are locals and have always gotten great service and excellent food at Pepito's. We love the quesadillas, fish dishes, fajitas, margaritas. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Mexican food and friendly, fast service. More...
Cheryl Kennedy Hines
We loved it. And that huge burrito my husband ordered should be a challenge meal! Picture on the wall and a free tshirt?!?!?!?!?!? ���
Good food. Friendly staff. Free chips and salsa too.
My husband and I are locals...Pepito’s is one of our favorites....we decided at the last minute to go since it was National Margarita Day....we had a great time and yummy food... our server was Elena-she was good...and we as we were leaving, oddly from a comment we made, discovered it was her first day at Pepito’s!...my word, she jumped up on the scale a lot to find out it was her first day on National Margarita Day! She was great! Of course, we will return! More...
Suzanne Riley Sutton
Steak quesadilla was delicious. My husband had the chicken tortilla soup and he said it was good. The chips were fresh , the salsa was excellent and the frozen strawberry margarita was sweet . It was more like dessert than a cocktail but it was yummy. The service was excellent. Must have been bad reviews because they were very attentive to us. More...
This was a great place! Food was delicious (had the fajitas), and the service was good. We had the house margaritas, and they were great too! Then our server talked us into having the Flan for dessert, and I'm glad she did. We enjoyed everything More...
We stopped in with a group of 10 celebrating our daughter's Birthday. Everyone enjoyed their food and the staff was friendly and attentive. They served our daughter some sort of fried ice cream desert and put a sombrero on her to sing Happy Birthday. We had a good time and we'll be back for sure. More...
Stopped in for chips, salsa, and margaritas at the bar! Great service, drinks, chips salsa and atmosphere would definitely come back again.
Awesome dining with even better Margaritas. Look forward to my next visit.
The food was good. Service was on point, with a good atmosphere. I do recommend stopping in.
Autumn Lyfe Ussery
Always a great experience! Adore the staff and amazing food!
Best chicken fajitas I've ever had...and believe me, I've had my share. Service was great. The restaurant was clean and brightly decorated. Seemed to be a popular spot.
O my goodness!!! Best Mexican food around. This is my top place from now on. Service was quick and super friendly. Chill environment and the food is absolutely amazing. I ordered the king burrito it's a monster lol. So yummy! My son is a very picky eater as well and he loves the tacos. That alone says alot. His favorite place to eat now too. If you want good food this is definitely the place to go. More...
Food is always great n Margaritas are nicely strong ❤️
Beware of their “Gold” tequila margaritas, it’s the really cheap stuff. Pick a good, quality tequila for your Margarita. Food is quite good.
Wow, how great this restaurant has grown. The food is well priced and fresh. Always greeted with a smile but the hostess and seated quickly.The servers are busy, however always stop to accept our requests. The food comes out fast and the drinks are good - especially if you like margaritas. More...
Food was great, excellent service and not too expensive.
For Mexican food in Destin, this earned five stars. The food was very good and the service was fast. Came with my elderly grandmother and our waitress was very accommodating to her weird requests. Prices are great great great for the area. Seemed like there were locals eating here as well which is always a good sign. Quesadillas and tacos were both very good. Not sure why so many negative reviews. More...
very good service and food was very good.. will be returning
Thanks for reaching out. I missed Pepitos and went back and it was the food I loved again. So I'm editing this past review I could not be more happier. It was incredible.
Me encantó, su rica comida ,estupenda. Muy buenas atenciones de parte del personal
It was simply delicious! I had the El Burro which was amazing. The staff was very friendly and accommodating!
Had a great time at Pepitos Mexican Restaurant last night, as we celebrated our daughter's 15th Birthday. The staff made it special by presenting her cake at just the right moment as they sang Happy Birthday to her. It was truly memorable.
Best Fresh Mexican Food around!!!! We love everything we have had.
Karen, the bartender, makes this place! Amazing food, top notch margaritas, and an awesome bartender to chat with! Makes me feel like I'm home, with her NY accent! Arroz con pollo is always always fresh! Highly suggest. More...
Great food! Great service! Nice and warm environment! Super courteous! Nice selection.
While in Destin, we love to go out for fresh seafood. One evening we wanted something quick, so I searched for a Mexican restaurant near us. We decided to give this place a try and are SO glad we did. Our server Dimitar was top notch. He welcomed us and helped make some recommendations when we told him what we liked. Based on his recommendation, I ordered a Snapper dish, which is my favorite Florida treat. It was absolutely one of the tastiest Snapper dishes I've ever eaten, prepared in the most delicious way. The wife loved the ceviche and tacos she ordered, and the kids gobbled up their meals like it was a plate of candy. EXCELLENT food, and EXCELLENT service. Will return every time we visit Destin. More...
Good food cold beer and the service was amazing! Mr. Alex was my server and he went above and beyond. Will definitely come back to this location for his service.
This is my first time eating at Pepito's and I'm sure I will come back to this location because of the service. My waiter was Alex and he was of utmost amazing!!! The food was very hot and fresh in the beer very cold. I look forward to my next visit. More...
Excellent food especially for the price. Good size portions and great service. The vegetarian enchilada was best I have had.
Best Mexican restaurant I have ever visited. Great food, portions were perfect, and our server was so awesome. We will definitely be back.
Kim Ellis Moore
Love Pepitos and the staff has always been great to us.
Good food! We had tacos lengua and Assad. Service was good, waiter was good. Always a good option if you are not in a hurry
Stopped in for lunch. What a great experience. At the table we had chorizo dip, lunch fajitas, lunch chimichanga, and taco salad. All were delicious. We also had a pitcher of house margarita. Excellent. More...
This is the real flavor of Mexican food, great service Soo friendly and the food very nice looking dishes. Muy bueno todo excelente y verdadero sabor mexicano.
Sandra Sharp Martin
Great food, excellent service! We will come again!
We use to come here every week, we love the bartender and the food was great! However, the last few months we keep getting let down again and again. It is steadily decreasing! We decided to try it out again tonight and guess what. Let down! So sad. The atmosphere is still the same and the bartender is great (although she is leaving in a month!) however the food is TERRIBLE! Tonight I ordered cheese dip (always a win!). Then I had a steak quesadilla with avocado slices and black bean side dish. (Trying to be healthy!) I told our server NO CILANTRO I have an allergy, that includes no guac, pico etc. guess what, came out with pico and cilantro chunks! :( Then my avocado side that I was so excited about, was 3 slivers not even 1/8 of an avocado. I had to ask for more! My quesadilla didn't even have enough cheese to keep it together, or the meat on. It did have a generous amount of steak which was nice but I had to cut into little bites because all The steak was falling out! The black bean side was good, I liked how they added onions and peppers and sprinkled cheese on top! I really hope they start focusing on their food again now that summer is over.. would love to be able to recommend it and continue coming here! More...
Great food and service. Would and will recommend to all my family and friends..
Veronica Anne Allen
Normally our service is about 3 stars when we come to this location. But tonight we recieved amazing service with Bryan L. He was full of energy and had a great attitude through our entire meal. More...
I have always loved Pepitos! Great food as always, service was so-so, but everyone has an off night sometimes. I will be back!
Great food, wonderful service, always a good time :)!
My husband and I ate at the Destin East location around 8:30pm on a Tuesday! Place was very busy but we didn't have to wait! Service was good! The chicken fajita nachos were delicious, as was the chicken/steak fajita dinner! Great flavor! Margarita was super and pretty strong! More...
On vacation saw all the good reviews so decided to eat lunch here. Food was tasty! Service was great! Worth checking out'
Like the fact that they have a vegetarian menue! I got the chiles rellenos and my daughter the vegetarian quesadillas both were good, hers better than mine I didn't like all that breeding on the chilles rellenos, but everything else was good. I do recomend this place.
We happened in during Happy Hour to celebrate a birthday, and did we get the surprise of our lives with great memories to boot♡ Great place with food and service, ......and to celebrate a birthday.
Excelente me encanto Riquísima la comida Mucha variedad para escoger.
Everything so fresh and authentic! My favorite place to come eat Mexican food ����
Loved it !! The food was delicious,and the waiter Luis was very nice and attentive!!
Is this THE best tex-mex you've ever had? Probably not, but it will do! I had some pretty good enchiladas and a decent margarita that didn't skimp on the alcohol. We're from Texas where we have amazing Mexican restaurants, and this place took care of our cravings! More...
Brianna M Northington

We had the best service and food at Pepito's. We will definitely come back!
Went on our last vacation, this place is now my favorite Mexican restaurant the Big S burrito (I get steak) is to die for!
Great food and awesome prices! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone! All our orders were right and our waitress was very friendly.
Your bartender Karen is fabulous!she truly makes one of the best margaritas on both sides of the bridge!you are lucky to have her,what an asset you have for your restaurant,give her a raise!i will be back because of her wonderful hospitality,thank you! More...
The food was great . Only issue we had was waited about an hour for our food which is a bit extreme no matter where you are.( we were seated immediately so wasnt to crowded) I will definitely be back when we visit Destin. More...
Taddie Troullos Spurlock
Favorite locals hangout. Fantastic food and minimal tourists!
Seriously one of the best places I have been in Destin! The shrimp cocktail is out of this world! I made sure my husband got me before we left! So good
I loved it the food was amazing. will eat there again
Great Margaritas and love the food and specials and friendly staff .Service never Excellent all visits and havent been disappointed yet ! Brian is a awesome server ~ ! Thank you More...
I wasn't very excited to go here based on the reviews. My expectations were low. Food was awesome! The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because of the service. First, I will discuss food. Very hot and spicy salsa. The first basket of chips and salsa is free and then they charge you $1 for more. Our waiter brought us an extra basket of chips and did not charge. We ordered cheese dip. Excellent. Some of the best I have ever had. Food came out without waiting long. I had the chimichanga and it was one of the best I ever had if not the best. Margarita was good and strong too. The server started out promising. At first he was on top of things. But never filled up our water until we were done with the meal. Then he charged us for a meal we never got. We paid the bill and then looked at the check. Our fault, I know, and realized that extra meal was on there. It took forever to fix. More...
I absolutely love this place!!! Food is always delicious and fresh! I get the Carnitas every time and it is always cooked to perfection. Also their Guacamole is AMAZING!! Service is better than other restaurants in Destin. Very family oriented. Overall very pleased. Would definitely recommend anyone to try them out!!! More...
This is the absolute best Mexican food in the Fort Walton Beach Area... And the staff & service is second to none. When we want food Mexican food this is the ONLY PLACE we will go!!!!!!
The fajita nachos are a must. Split with another person and had leftovers. Also, drinks are bomb. The larges or pitchers are the best bang for your buck too.
i'm not sure why this restaurant has bad reviews, i was iffy about coming because of them but saw the pictures of food and decided to come. It was worth it! The food was fresh, chicken chimichanga was delicious and the salsa was spicy and it was fresh homemade guacamole! I am a bit picky about my mexican and this place was great! More...
Great food, drinks and service� table of 10 and all orders were correct and tasted delish. Get a top shelf margarita!
Lisa Jo Appleton Doss
Great food and service!!! The manager checked on us and hubbys ice tea glass was never empty!! Taco salads were FABULOUS!
Excellent service and meal. The margarita were amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Been a fan of Peps since they opened the first one in Destin moons ago. I see a lot of folks remarking negatively on food/service. Over 15 years and hundreds of meals later I think I may have had 1 bad experience. It's still my go to Mex anytime any day. More...
Good food...good drink special...great service...first time...wont be the last!
We've been here several times and have always had great food and service. Tonight our waiter was Brian, he was fantastic! Very personable and attentive, he even went out of his way to keep our kiddos entertained. We will be back again.
