"BEST MEXICAN FOOD IN EFFINGHAM!!! Essentially this is food your grandmother would make if you grandmother was from Mexico. Great authentic meals with many choices of meats. Great staff! You are with family when you dine here!"

Trevor H.

"Not only is this the best Mexican food in Illinois, but the staff is also legitimately amazing, and the atmosphere is more authentic than the Mexican restaurants that try to feel like a tour of Mexican tropes."

Gave this taqueria a try and I am extremely pleased. I'm a Marine veteran and lived in San Diego for years eating Mexican/Chicano/SouthAmerican cuisine that grossly shamed most Mexican restaurants; Taqueria Don Pedro is right on point with the best of the best. Delicious burrito Carne Asada, Arroz Rojo, and refreshing agua de jamaica (Hibiscus Tea).


"Best Mexican food. So yummy!!! Fresh salsa warm chips to start it off right. Then we get a nacho and share it with a few amazing fish tacos. Stop here every time we come threw favorite place to eat in Effingham. Oh you have to try the fajitas there so yummy with homemade tortillas."

"Love the place food was awesome and the margaritas were excellent also! Our waiter was super and the price was unbeatable!!!! Would recommend if you like Mexican!"

"We enjoyed our dinner @ Don Pedro veru much. The food was superb. Flavors were exquisite. Not all the items ordered tasted the same which is sometimes the case @ ethnic restaurants. We arrived early so we had great service. We observed the staff arriving before the crowd & liked that they were well staffed. The dining room filled up fast before we left. Our first experience was wonderful."

"Amazing tacos, great salsa and sopa! I would explore more of the menu, but the tacos are soooooooo good!"

Jonathan W.

"Great food! I had the fish tacos and a side salad from the lunch menu and it was excellent and reasonably priced. I love very hot salsa with my chips and this did not disappoint. It was different and full of flavor. I'd give Taqueria Don Pedro 6 stars if I could!!"
