Pepito’s Mexican restaurant recently reopened with a “soft opening” after the construction of a new, larger restaurant. The restaurant will not officially be open for a couple of weeks as credit card machines are still to be installed.
For now, Pepito’s is open for reduced hours, cash only transactions and the new drive thru is not yet in use.
The 70-seat new Spanish mission-style restaurant replaces a smaller walkup that stood on the same property on Base Line east of Victoria. Pepito’s had been closed during the final phases of construction of the new building and the demolition of the old building.
