New site. New name. Same great Pepe's taste. Pepe's Red Tacos is now El Cabo Pepe's.
Spanning four generations, the food served up at El Cabo Pepe’s traveled a long way to get to your plate.
Francisco Almeida Alvarez (our great-grandfather) was born in Jalisco, Guadalajara. He joined the military at the age of 13 and later fought with the Mexican Calvary during the Mexican Revolution. He made the military a lifetime career and retiring at the rank of El Cabo (Corporal) in 1930, finally passing away in 1976. Today he lives on in our name and through the values of commitment, loyalty, endurance and faith that he passed on to all of us.
After pursuing our own careers, we realized that our true passion was food — more specifically food trucks. Our father, Jose, worked in the food truck industry for over 35 years so we grew up working in the food trucks with him. Our mother, Irma, was hardworking and determined to raise strong business women. Our father’s passion and our mother’s perseverance inspired us to leave the corporate world and carve our own path in our family business. El Cabo Pepe’s – formerly Pepe’s Red Tacos – is our homage to our parents, grandparents and all our ancestors.
This small family business that started with one food truck has now become bigger than we ever imagined. And it’s only the beginning.
In memory of our beloved little sister and guardian angel Nicole, who passed away in 1998.
