Fresno Dilemma

Fresno dilemma--an embarrassment of riches.

With Fresno the two night pivot point for our swing through the High Sierras, our mid-June Fresno chow choices have been narrowed to two of these three, in no particular order:
--Cracked Pepper Bistro

Questions--what's needed is current 411:
--Are all three of the above hitting on all cylinders right now?
--We love Peruvian food and several years ago enjoyed Mochica (the Mission location) in San Francisco quite a bit. Is Limon of better quality? If yes, this would be valuable info.

--For several self-catered breakfast/lunches while in the national parks, we have jotted down Occasion Bakery (even if we miss their Friday falafel special) and Fresno Deli; would Izi's be redundant?
--Hunan, as impressive as I truly believe it to be based on chowhounds' accolades, echoes the several fine Sichuan places here in Atlanta that we regularly patronize. Plus, we are only two, and two could never do justice to such a menu as Chef Liu's.
--Don Pepe's. There is never enough weekend carnitas. lengua or barbacoa de borrego or fresh shrimp in all its forms and manners of preparation, nor sufficient time to eat it. Thank goodness that we don't lack for three of the four (fresh wild caught shrimp is increasingly hard to come by) here at home.
