This is the only one that would come up on trip advisor but I went to the one on Viscount Blvd but I assume they are the same. There is no place to sit down so you have to place your order to go. Every...More

I always stop and get 3 to 6 dozen for my friend back in ft worth. But no more this is the last time I will embarrass myself. The quality has dropped over the years. To dry, masa not cooked,and way to expensive for the...More

Small array of selections (take-out only, I think), but the two varieties we sampled -- chicken, and pork -- were both generously filled (much more filling than masa) and tasty. Definitely worth a repeat visit, because the offerings vary, day to day. We'll be back.

My wife introduced me to to Pepe's 15 years ago. Since then I've made several 200 mile detours to get a few dozen to bring home and freeze

I hope to visit El Paso again soon so I can buy more. I tried both Red and Green and was wholly satisfied with both, with a slight preference for the green.

I have been visiting Pepe's Tamales for over 30 years. In all that time, I have never recieved bad tamales or menudo and don't understand some other reviewers comments. Sometimes the tamales are better than others for my taste but overall, excellent! The masa is...More

Green chile w/ cheese are pretty good, but red pork tamales are not that good. El sabor de la masa era un poco amarga (sour); tasted as if they had put lemon in it. They're a little expensive. Plus, they only take cash. It was...More
