Pepe's Finest Mexican Food

Nominated for: BEST Burrito

Pepe's Finest Mexican Food 821 N Placentia Ave Fullerton CA (714) 528-9291

Pepe's Restaurants have continuously served the Southland with fine quality Mexican food. Pepe's was founded in 1962 by two brothers, Joe and Tony. The restaurant was originally named El Adobe and in 1963 renamed El Jardin. Unable to find steady business at first, the location was changed several times before finally settling in Alhambra in 1963, where the name was changed permanently to Pepe's. During these early years, the brothers often relied on the help of family members to keep the business growing. In 1963, their nephew Pepe was sent to fight in Vietnam. This is when Tony, out of love for his nephew, renamed the restaurant after him. In the following years, the restaurant had become a great success. However, in 1973 Tony passed away leaving Joe to run the business solely. In 1976, the youngest of the three brothers, Fred, joined in helping to expand Pepe's Restaurants with the opening of the Downey location. Since then, Pepe's has continued to grow, opening locations in both Los Angeles and Orange Counties. The restaurants have continuously served authentic, high quality Mexican food, keeping their secret recipes inside the family. This has made Pepe's the well-known establishment it is today.
