In Mexico they say, “if you want good food, go to Michoacan.” In Kettering we say, “if you want good food, come to Pepitos.”

Since 1983 Pepito’s restaurant feature authentic and traditional Mexican dishes, many of which have come from family recipes dating way back in time. Our distinctive menu offers classics such as our famous “Super Burrito”, tamales, enchiladas, and sizzling fajitas. Our combination plates along with newer “comidas especiales” like “Burrito California” and fresh grilled chicken or steak fajita quesadillas have made Pepito’s famous along with our irresistible Chicken Nopalitos, which were introduced way back. But there is one thing that Pepito’s is especially known for and that is our famous “Golden Margaritas.” Pepito’s pioneered the now renown Jose Cuervo Special into their secret “Golden Margarita” recipe and it has become a”must taste” for visitors to Kettering, Ohio.

Vibrant colors and lightning makes Pepito’s a festive and happy place to be, while photos of early history, family, friends, and celebrities give guests a sense of the restaurant’s history.
