Welcome to Pepitos

An independent Mexican restaurant that serves freshly made and delicious Mexican food to be enjoyed alongside your friends and family.

Pepitos was founded in 1997 in Derby when the owner Hassan travelled to Mexico City with his best friend Eli and discovered the beauty and taste of Mexican food and culture.

After his travels, Hassan made his way home and set about recreating the zest and flavours of Mexico in England. Introducing Mexican food all those years ago proved to be very difficult; finding the right quality ingredients and the team was a challenge. But ever since opening its doors, Pepitos hasn’t looked back. To this day, we continue to use the techniques and ingredients that was first discovered by Hassan all those years ago.

We’re so proud of our hospitality, that Pepitos really is the best place to bring the whole family for a great meal out. As a result you'll hear us saying, “Everyone loves Pepitos” a fair bit. After visiting we hope you’ll be saying it too.
