Pepe’s is a bit of an Austin newcomer, with a food trailer near 7th and Lamar. The menu here is small, but focused - birria tacos, quesabirria, birria quesadillas, tortas, and consomé. We enjoyed the birria tacos and quesabirria here - the meat was tender and well-spiced, and the tortillas were crispy. The salsas here were not our favorite, but then again, we don’t usually find ourselves needing a whole lot of salsa on a taco that’s just been through a warm consomé bath.
