1079 Fourth Street, Santa Rosa
December 14, 2005

Here is yet another pay up front Mexican place. They're really common around here, but Pepe's outdoes most the others in Santa Rosa with the quality of their food.

Annette had the Chimichanga. I had a Soft Taco. I had already had lunch, and was 'just hanging' with Annette. I figured I would be remiss to not check out the food.

The chimichanga looked great. It was a nice golden brown, served on a bed of lettuce with guacamole, sour cream and pico de gallo on the side. There was no complaint about the plate being wet this time. Annette raved about the taste, so I can only say she was either starving, or her food was really good.

My taste of Pepe's quisuine was small, but good. I had expected the taco would be a bit more tangy, since I'm used to roach-coach soft tacos, but it was tasty none the less. Lucky for me Pepe's has a salsa bar with spicy and mild Pico de gallo, spicy tomatillo sauce, and a couple of red sauces. Let me say that the regular pico de gallo was not watered down or at all bland. The hot was exactly as it was billed.

As an additional bonus, the sodas were an open fountain with free refills. The chips came in a rather small container, but were refilled when I asked for more. I have to say that the chips were the best I've had in Santa Rosa, though the second batch was more broken bits than chips. Also, their guacamole was excellent.

We paid about fourteen dollars for full meal and a snack with drinks and guacamole. It would have been about sixteen or seventeen if I had ordered a full meal also. Overall, a definitely good value.
