“I recommend taco Tuesday (1.50 tacos). They make all their food in-house. The best is to sit at their outdoor table where you have water views and can take in the Silverstrand neighborhood. Another fun thing to do is to order the food-to-go and walk it down to the beach or take to The Beachcomber Tavern to eat with a cold beer or glass of wine. Unfortunately, Pepe’s to-go containers are Styrofoam BUT they are good about packing food in containers you bring. I have glass container in the studio if you’d like to bring your own and skip the styrofoam.”
