A burrito, like a love letter, is packed with juicy tidbits and is most surprising when left on a pillow. Warm the heart and the tongue with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare at Pepe's Mexican Restaurant in Homer Glen.
The victual virtuosos at Pepe's Mexican Restaurant draw from a palette of tortillas, cheese, meats, and savory sauces to craft a colorful menu of traditional and creative Mexican dishes. Diners can kick off nosh fests by dismantling platters of cheese-drenched nachos ($7.25) or staining fingers with a dozen mexican buffalo wings ($8.25), the chipotle-infused cousin of the american appetizer. For the main course, guests can hold or finger-twirl one of nine burritos ($5.95+) Globetrotter-style, or unwrap deep-fried stuffed poblano peppers ($8.95) before tearing apart cheesy quesadillas ($6.50+). Dinner platters pair rice, beans, and warm tortillas with specialties such as carne-asada skirt steak ($14.25) or camarones ala diablo ($14.25)—jumbo shrimp sautéed in a peppery homemade salsa intended to test the resolve of even the most fireproof of tongues. Patrons can rap up meals with desserts of fried ice cream ($3.95), sweet empanadas ($2.95+), or flan ($3.50).
Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant
Mario Dovalina and Edwin Ptak established the original Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant in 1967 in order to satisfy diners craving authentic Mexican dishes. With more than 40 locations in the Chicagoland area and Northwest Indiana and traditional eats that are sold across the United States and even in Mexico, Pepe's appeases a wide variety of noshers with its hearty options. Appetizers such as chips and fresh guacamole made daily or chili con queso ready bellies for veggie burritos bursting with seasonal vegetables. Flat-screen TVs broadcasting sports games or ballerina wrestling matches dot the spacious walls at the casual Homer Glenn eatery, keeping diners in their seats long after their shrimp, pork, or vegetable fajitas are finished.
