Great food and service. The carnitas fries are the best and the wings are awesome. Try them with the street corn.

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.

This is my 1st bad experience...I understand that my server Steven was new but being new doesn't mean you can't hear...he kept getting our orders wrong all night. To add insult to injury he forgot to give my fiance back his debt card which was a great inconvenience since we live in MD and had to drive back to wilmington de to get the debt cd back

I can't remember what the food taste like... mediocre. And I think our server was the buss-boy, which is not bad but also not good. If a buss-boy gone serve he should be the best buss-boy you got.

Our waitress was very nice but we waited nearly twenty mins for our first drink order and by the time our food came, it wasn’t very hot. I ordered the chicken fajitas. I don’t understand why we waited so long for our drinks bc it wasn’t really busy inside the restaurant at all. I order a second drink as well and still had to wait almost twenty mins for the drink to come. I wasn’t very impressed with the service.

I chose Del Pez for dinner with two other couples for my husband‘s birthday. We went on a Friday night and the restaurant was pretty full. The music was loud, but appropriately loud. We started with margaritas and two kinds of guacamole: the regular and the crab. I liked the regular, but I could do without the addition of the crab meat as I really didn’t feel it lent much to the dish and the heat of the chili peppers overpowered the crab. The margaritas were tasty, if a bit weak; I was disappointed that we could not order margaritas by the pitcher. I ordered the short rib chimichanga, which I liked, but was not blown away by; my husband ordered the taco combination plate, which he also liked. We did not order dessert. The service was good, but not especially friendly. I don’t need my waiter to be my best friend, but I do prefer a little bit more friendliness. Everyone in our party seemed to like the restaurant. I think we would go again.

The service was top notch. During our meal, the manager stopped by to make sure we were enjoying our meal and it was all thumbs up. This was our first visit to Del Pez so we weren't sure what to expect. We were seated promptly and our server was there within 3 minutes. We got drinks promptly, refills and extra chips. The food was great, rated that a 4 out of 5 because two of us got the tacos and neither of us are fans of soft corn tortillas, they have an odd flavor. Flour tortillas would have been so much better. One in our party got the wings and those were phenomenal. The restaurant was clean and well kept. We found parking on the street that was really convenient, so no worries there (and we went on a Saturday night).

Great food. Duck and Baja tacos were absolutely delicious. Street corn was great (and a good portion) and rice had amazing flavor. Friends had the enchiladas and crab quesadilla which they loved and the cocktails were tasty especially the mezcal mule if you are a fan. Our server was on point and very sweet. She gave us samples of the beer cheese, salsa verde, and corn pudding which were all good. The price was reasonable for a group of five and the space wasn’t overpacked. Would love to go back in the summer.

It was my first visit, and I absolutely loved it!!! The three of us shared the nachos as an appetizer, which could have been the meal. I ordered chicken quesadilla, but hardly ate any because I was so full!! Everything was excellent!!!
