Loved the menu; we ordered a variety and each dish was delicious. The Taco Pub Sampler got rave reviews. Cancun Shrimp was the favorite. it was just the right amount of spice.

We at outside; it was a nice night. Lots of people out and about.

Staff was doing their best. However, they needed more help. They are having a hard time getting people who want to work. I still enjoy the food so the wait was worth it.

I do not have the words for how terrible my experience was at Del Pez. I ended up calling the restaurant on the phone to ask where my food was, as my table was waiting 1.5 hours for our entrees and drink. I don’t believe a restaurant could be that busy - at some point as the night goes on, you should be catching up on orders. Maybe having your hostesses help with initial drink and appetizer orders could help. Worst of all, I asked for the food to go because we really had enough. When I got home my meal wasn’t even in the bag! Worst experience in this area.

Food was good service was not. Waitress was great but it took so long to get our food and drinks that it wasn’t worth it in the end. I Would come back on a not busy day, but unfortunately it’s not close enough to where I live to do so when it’s not a weekend.

Food high quality and delicious. Vegan and dairy free options very much appreciated! Staff went out of their way to put our two family reservations together. We had two college graduates and they each were given congratulatory desserts, very nice.
Easy street side (wknds free) parking or large free lot very close. Highly recommend!

Fantastic food and service. Definitely recommend. It's not traditional Mexican but more in the style of Mexican fusion, so if you're looking for authentic Mexican, you may want to keep this one for later but I highly recommend the food! The service was great and the drinks superb!

This visit was a complete disaster. We have been going to Del Pez for a few years and the food has been consistent but the service has gone completely downhill. We had a reservation, showed up on time, and the hostesses were completely disorganized - we were asked at least 3 times whether we wanted to sit inside or outside, each time saying we were content with whatever was available first, and still waited about 15 minutes after our reservation time to be seated.

We watched as the busser, who was clearly high, took an excessive amount of time to attempt to clear off any table. Once seated, it was about 10-15 minutes before our server greeted us. We watched a manager drop orders at tables around us, clearly they were very understaffed. We also saw multiple tables sneak in alcohol and other beverages from Constitution Yards next door, so this place has sadly developed a reputation as one where the service and management do not pay attention to this type of behavior.

I understand they can’t control being busy, the clientele who was there, and to an extent being understaffed, but despite our patience it took almost 45 minutes for our server to bring us our drinks. I ordered a soda, which took about 40 minutes, and my husband never got his beer. We asked for the check after getting our appetizers because we just lost faith that anything would go right.

Hopefully this is still a dependable spot for take out, but give it sometime for staff to turnover because we didn’t encounter anyone who knew what they were doing or seemed to care during this visit.

Service was good but Not Great. There was NO “Wow” factor with the food with the exception of the Diablo Guacamole which was really good. The steak tacos were basically bland and the steak portion was very minimal, but for the price they were reasonable. I’d rather pay a dollar or two more and get a generous portion. Something was missing though to give them some flavor. The Short Rib chimichanga was tasty, but the Creme sauce on top was in excess. Next time I would tell them to put half of the portion on the side and dip. The wings were very large and very tasty, but the dipping sauce portion was a little less than needed to cover. Recommend to provide a little more of the chipotle blue cheese dip with the wings and go a touch lighter on the Creme topping on the chimi. Overall, it was a decent meal but more efforts need to be made in order to describe it as a Mexican gastropub

Soooo I’ve been to this establishment three times total. Two times before the pandemic and this last time during the pandemic. You need reservations and they do book up fast if it’s a weekend. When I entered to check in the host told me there were no high top tables even though on my reservation that was the option selected. So then I asked if I could have this one booth on an upper level that I saw was empty. She said that it was for larger parties. I had to wait about 5 minutes to be seated. There is a small bench at the waiting area but there is no way you can socially distance but you do have the option to stand outside and wait which is probably the best. When I was seated it was the booth I had initially requested. Service was decent. I ordered the personal guac which I was disappointed in because it had absolutely no seasoning. It was very bland. I like my guac to have a signature spice. But some places don’t add seasoning I guess this is one of them. I ordered two cocktails that barely had a drop of alcohol but a lot of sour mix (HATE THAT)! The chicken fajitas were delicious and the red rice is absolutely the best I’ve had at a Mexican restaurant. Great flavor! I defiantly like this place I just wish their drinks were stronger. Also, the outside seating seemed really nice. I will be back.

We started with some beer flights and the Carnitas fries, which were very tasty, and a nice twist on traditional nachos. For dinner, I had the steak fajitas, and my wife had the pub taco sampler. Both very nicely prepared, seasoned and presented. Our waiter, Steve, deserves a special shout out for the friendly, attentive service.
