Tacos Don Pepe

 

 

AJ Brockman tells The Rickie Report, “The first week of our “soft opening” was a success! Please bear with us as we continue to go through some growing pains and implementing some changes. We’ve rolled out our new menu from Tacos don Pepe earlier than anticipated and will therefore no longer be allowing outside food to be brought in. We understand this was a big part of our atmosphere but we are only trying to make things better and offer more options. The entire menu is literally prepared from scratch with authentic Mexican recipes passed down through the generations. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available + over 6 homemade sangria’s. All you have to do is try it and you will see why we have decided to offer this exclusively!!”

 

Here’s The LineUp*

 

Tuesday – Musicians Showcase “In the Round” : 7 to 10 : $2 off draft & specialty wine. Bringing you a little bit of Nashville to Lake Park. Hosted by Bill Hartmann, this event is part storytelling, part jam session, and all out acoustic. Original music at its finest!
