“You cannot beat Pepe's for tamales!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2009

Pepe's in an El Paso institution, and you cannot beat their amazing tamales! Your choices are: Green chile chicken, Red pork, and sweet tamales...that's it. They totally rock! They are the very best, a great value, and a NEED-TO-TRY for El Paso visitors, to get a true taste of this unique city's cuisine.

“Nothing beats Pepe's Tamales MMMMM Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2009

We love to go to Pepes Tamales along McRae Blvd. It is located in a strip shopping center. It is a to go place only. We love the green chile chicken tamales- they are hot and spicy. The red with pork is also so good. The kids like the green chile and cheese tamales or the desert tamales. Definately recommend going to Pepe's.
