What people say…


You won’t be sorry

Been here twice now and will keep coming back the staff are all excellent. With a smile and great service from the moment you walk through the door till the moment you leave. The food was excellent and not to expensive. Also we asked if we could buy some of the spicy sauce one of dishes came in and they gave us a container of it for free. If anyone is looking for a great Mexican meal with great standards please go to pepitos you won’t be sorry.


Without a doubt our favourite restaurant in derby

Me and my partner come here ALL the time! It’s without a doubt our favourite restaurant in derby. We always get greeted with a warm welcome! I’ve also been here with friends and even for a large group for someone’s birthday and the treatment has been exactly the same. Never had a bad meal and everything is delicious. Deffo give it a try!


Food, service, atmosphere!

Good restaurant for a special occasion! We went with friends for a birthday. More turned up than expected but this wasn’t a problem, they just pulled up another table. We thought the food was a bit dear, but after eating it realised it was very good value for money. Everyone enjoyed what they had. Service was brilliant, even giving the birthday boys a free shot of tequila. The sombreros and guitars helped make the photographs.



Good value, Good Service and overall good food. Stick to the Chilli or the Fajitas and you will not go wrong, mix in a couple of Desperados, job done.
I eat here at least twice a month, and have been impressed every time, I organised the work team do and held it here, the same applied, good value, decent atmosphere and good food.
This place knocks spots of the chain places and is well good.


If you haven’t tried Pepitos – what are you waiting for?

We are regular visitors to Pepitos. I’m always amazed that there aren’t more Mexican restaurants around, so whenever we do find one, we give it a go. And then end up going back to Pepitos to try and erase the memory! Why is it that no-one comes close? Pepitos is a rustic looking restaurant, which has a fun decor without being tacky. It has plenty of tables and we have never had to wait (which surprises me as it should be bursting at the seams). The staff are brilliant. Very attentive and helpful. Always willing to make a special occasion a bit more special. The menu has all that you would expect to find in a Mexican and although personally I always have the same (why try anything else when Fajitas are the best?!), friends have tried most things on the menu with positive results. The prices are about average for the type of restaurant. The only criticism I’ve ever had is that sometimes I find the restaurant is a bit cool. Especially if you are dressed for a special occasion, so not in the warmest of clothes!

Great food

Went to Pepitos on Saturday 14th December, wow the food was fantastic as always would recommend the chimichanga it’s a must try!

I love this restaurant; it’s definitely my favourite in Derby! Food is just amazing, cocktails are a winner and the staff are incredibly friendly and make you feel very welcome – Our favourites are the BBQ’d Lamb and Steak, there is not a single fault I could pick if I tried. Hugely underrated, which is a shame because it’s so lovely – Not too loud and lighting is perfect!

Love you Pepitos – see you soon!!!


Another great evening in our favourite restaurant

Another great meal at our favourite restaurant in the world. I don’t need the menu anymore… It has to be spicy chicken nachos, chicken chimichanga and Pepitos’ special ice cream. Delicious! We’re always made to feel so welcome. Love, love, love it!


Mexican at its Best

Visited this restaurant for the first time three weeks ago for my daughter’s 33rd Birthday and must say we were more than pleased with the whole experience. Warm welcome, prompt service, lovely smiling and friendly staff and fabulous food. It reminded us of our holiday in Mexico and we almost felt we were back there. They realised it was a birthday treat so all the staff sang to her and brought out a lovely cocktail with a sparkler in it, making her feel very special, although somewhat embarrassed too! We will definitely be back even though we have to travel from Lichfield, but it’s well worth it.


Great Mexican

been here a number of times over last four years and have always had great food. Went tonight and was seated quickly having booked earlier the same day. Service was polite and quick. Food was lovely and reminds me of being in Arizona where I have tried some of the best Mexican food. The restaurant is rustic clean and has a good atmosphere. Will be back again in due course.

Great atmosphere.

came across this by chance as we were staying at the Stuart Hotel, and thought mexican would be a good choice for our tea. We were very pleased with the atmosphere, we both ordered cocktails which were very tasty. We both chose fajitas however my friend requested lettuce leaves instead of tortilla and they were very happy to oblige. Good value for an authentic restaurant.
