Pepitas Mexican Restaurant is a local, family-owned business. Most of our employees have been with us since the beginning (16 years ago) when we opened in 1999. We still have loyal customers that have been with us since our opening, and have seen our transformation throughout the years.
Pepitas started as a fast food restaurant. One would order at the front counter and we would bring you food. Slowly but surely we started to change into a dine-in/ sit down style family restaurant. We started to bring art from different parts of Mexico to decorate the restaurant. Some people may say this makes too much clutter with lots of colorful stuff, but we feel, and many agree, that this adds to the authentic Mexican atmosphere and fits with our objective of making you feel like you have been transported when you walk through the door.
At Pepitas, we have our own restaurant culture. You will not have an assigned server, but rather everyone will make sure you are taken care of. You may get a sense that we are not organized, but trust us- we know where you are sitting and we know what you may need. We will always strive to make sure you have a pleasant time at Pepitas.
Our Mexican food recipes come from different parts of Mexico and some are even our own family recipes, such as our home made mole. Our Aunt Raquel from Veracruz taught us how her mole secrets! Our beef stew recipe is from our Mom and we make it the same way she has been making it for many years.
So, come on in and try it for yourself!!!!
