Pepe's Taco Villa

Pepe's Taco Villa Review

The neighborhood's not fancy, and neither is this restaurant, but in a town with a lot of gringo-ized south-of-the-border fare, this is the real friendly, real deal. Tacos rancheros—spicy, shredded pork pungently lathered with adobo paste—are a dream, as are the green-corn tamales and authentic imported machacado (air-dried beef). The chiles rellenos may be the best in the state. All are perfect with a margarita from the full bar. Don't leave without trying the sensational mole, a rich sauce fashioned from chiles and chocolate.
