It’s not often that I find a Tex-Mex restaurant that stands above it’s competitors in a very crowded field, but Pepe’s & Mito’s is one such find.
Located in what is undoubtedly an old building in Deep Ellum, the atmosphere instantly transports you far away from east Dallas, to west side San Antonio! The interior is simple, concrete floors, an exposed steel ceiling and plaster walls. But the simple decor is homey, and bright colors make it warm.
Service is prompt and “con uno sunrise.” The food is very tasty and the portions are plentiful. A nice selection of beers – including a couple of local brews – stands ready to accompany anything you order.
Sadly, I didn’t get to try Pepe’s & Mito’s specialty: albondiga soup. Apparently, Guy Fieri went “loco” for it, as well as their beef tacos nortenos. I’ll definitely need to try these next time and see if they’re as good as advertised!
I’ll be adding Pepe’s & Mito’s to my rotation of “usual” Tex-Mex restaurants. May be you should too!
