Went the other day hoping that it was a clone of the fantastic Don Pepe Fresno. Asked the lady at the counter what the relationship was between the two locations and she said, "My brother owns the Fresno location." Great. So, I ordered what I consider to be the ultimate Fresno Don Pepe selection, The Shrimp Cocktail.. AND..
What is disappointment! The presentation was similar but the shrimps were runts..HALF THE SIZE and not very tasty. The liquid in the goblet was devoid of spice and too watery. Had a taco too and it was ok but just ok.
I was so bummed that I went right over to El Kora for some great shrimp tostadas. Now that was deelish.
