Okay not the best Mexican place to eat for sure, but for Barrow the best Mexican place to eat. The owners son is funny as heck, which would likely be your server. Not bad, not the best, if you want Mexican stop buy,

We ate here twice during our four-day stay in Barrow. I wasn't too impressed either time. The tortilla chips were very hard and the enchilada tasted like they used expired cheese. Nonetheless, it was a very unique place and for that I am sad to...More

Barrow, Alaska is truly an experience and it wouldn't have been complete without a trip to Pepe's. We had dinner there the evening of August 30th and, unfortunately, the place burned to the ground Saturday morning. (They are promising to rebuild) Hope is wasn't something...More
