have a nice memory from years ago
Reviewer: Lili from Santa Barbara, CA
I ate at Don Pepe's twice during a stay a few years ago. I remember the food being very, very good--the reason I returned a second time during my short visit. I can't remember the service being bad or good, but I know I would have remembered if it was terrible. I never return if the service is bad and I let the management know, so pretty sure the service was acceptable and though I speak Spanish, this is America, so I ordered in English (this I do remember). Give it a try, it is a a surprisingly good place, though its appearance almost discouraged my hubby--a bit shabby, not the 5 star, air conditioned eateries he prefers...but he liked the food too! And we have been dying to go back since.


amazing handmade pupusas
Reviewer: jenn from santa barbara
there arent very many places you can get good pupusas in this city, or rather pupusas at all and cheap! this place makes them anyway u want with any comblination on the spot-delish i suggest the revuelta! their burritos are also pretty delish, and when u sit they give u free chips as an appetizer one time they came with mole and another time with cojita and yummy salsa- but beware if you go during drunk muchy time food is significantly smaller and made with less quality.:)


THE BEST AUTHENTIC MEXICAN RESTAURANT
Reviewer: JHON from MONTECITO
I ' VE BEEN COUPLE TIMES HERE AND THEY CHANGE MY DAY WITH THEIR FOOD AND SERVICE. I ATE SOME "PELLISCADAS DE CHORIZO, AQUASH FLOWER QUESADILLAS "'IS SIMPLE THE BEST AUTHENTIC MEXICAN RESTAURANT AND I THINK THEY CHANGE THEIR NAME LIKE 6 MONTHS AGO, NOW IS CALLED ROMANTI EZER.


I don't know what these reviews are about...
Reviewer: Ash from Santa Barbara, Ca
This is easily the best mexican food I've had in Santa Barbara. The mole is amazing, the burrito ranchero was amazing, etc. I left the resturaunt still talking about how nice the waiter was, and how attentive they were. They also made this kinda fun horchata drink with melon and marrachino cherries. After this experience, I look forward to frequenting here.


Wack..
Reviewer: Jacob Fuego from Santa Barbara, CA
First time i ate at this place.. had the torta. Service was alright... asked for napkins or water or something and they lagged for days. Finally got the torta, and it was disgusting. Something with the cheese.. way to much and just.. nasty all together. Couldnt even eat 75% of it.. and i love tortas. Anyway, i gave the place another chance, ordered a burrito. They said it comes with guac, sour cream and pico de gallo on the side. Werd. I need my guac, sour cream and pico, and usually like it inside the burrito, but on the sides cool. Anyway, after a while I finally get the burrito, go home, open up the container... AND THERES NO SOUR CREAM!! and literally a spoonful or guac and pico. Thats all i gotta say...


Great empanadas
Reviewer: Erica from Santa Barbara
Let's talk empanadas: I am Peruvian and I know Empanadas. They may not be traditional, but they are EXCELLENT! Sopa de camerones is also a favourite, lots of shrimp, good light broth. I definately would go again for a quick lunch.


Just not quite there
Reviewer: Janice Peeterson from Santa Barbara, CA
The food itself is good... that is if by chance you get something that has been cooked all the way through. The people however are nice. Its good for last minute snack!!!


how stupid can you be

this place is ridiculous, the cashiers are about 10 yrs old and dont speak english, you want red sauce u get green, I´ve eaten there several times and it´s pure comedy watching theses morons run this place.
