Thank you for your response. I will share your comments to the entire staff and I personally recommend for you to next time try the Pepe's Nachos. They come with French Fries, if you dare.

Great specialized cocktails; very good food; friendly and efficient service. Informal; interesting decor. Patronized by people from the local neighborhood as well as from the greater Santa Rosa area. I feel like I'm eating home-cooked Mexican food! Very reasonable prices, too.

The alpastor quesadillas were horrible, greasy to the max and tasted like rubber. No actual taste really, the cashier girl had somewhat of an attitude.
