Pepe’s was a runaway success, garnering a loyal following that helped the Bugarin family fulfill the other half of their dream – opening Margaritas in 1977, in Pasadena.Currently, Pepe’s and Margaritas are being run by the second generation of Bugarins, and customers still come for the delicious Mexican food and amazing drinks being served by the two restaurants. Many old customers have grown up with the restaurants, seeing both transform. Margaritas was first, expanding in the 90s, while in 2008, Pepe’s relocated from La Canada to a more pedestrian friendly location on Honolulu Ave. in Montrose.Both are not only known for great food and drinks however, and the Bugarins pride on their restaurant’s top-notch service. The Bugarins make sure that their staff is friendly and efficient, and to give customers the importance they so deserve.The ambience for both restaurants is a relaxed and casual vibe. People are invited to eat and have fun with their families in Pepe’s and Margaritas, and not be stifled by formal graces reserved for the more ‘fancy restaurants.’But though the service and ambience are part of the reason why customers come back, it’s the food and drinks that shine for Pepe’s and Margaritas. From the beef tacos with beans and rice, enchiladas, shrimp in broth and rellenos, to the fantastic drinks like Margarita Martini, Michelada, Chelada, Chabela and more,It’s been more than 40 years since Pepe’s opened, and 30+ years since Margaritas graced our city, and yet both still continue to provide quality food, refreshments and service consistently. We have the Bugarins to thank for, from founders Bernardino and Gloria, to the second generation Rolando and Ruby. The family has done well to preserve the spirit of Zacatecas through the restaurants food and drink, but also Mexican hospitality and feel through the service and ambience.Pepe’s and Margaritas are here to stay, and if you haven’t done so, go and visit to experience the hype.To find out more about Pepe’s and Margaritas, visit Margaritas is located at 155 S. Rosemead Blvd. while Pepe’s is located at Honolulu Ave., Montrose. For more information, call (626) 449-4193 for Margaritas, and (818) 248-6622 for Pepe’s. Your email address will not be published.

With no time to take the call, the councillor hung up and went about his normal business.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Minutes later, however, he was left feeling totally flummoxed when he got a text message from O2 informing him that he had overspent by a sum of €10 over on his monthly phone plan.“I thought I was charged the €10 for the incoming call and I went totally ballistic. When I got home I contacted O2 online through their live chat and received the full details,” Cllr Long explains.“I was then even more horrified to learn that because I went through 11811 I had been charged €2.99 for a local call to my solicitor. In total it cost me €10 euro for three local calls. This in my opinion is a total rip-off,” he claimed.Cllr Long is now vowing never to use the 11811 directory enquiries service again.“If I had made the call at home on a landline it would have only cost 22 cent for three minutes. These hidden charges need to be highlighted and I’ll be contacting the Minister in relation to this,” Cllr Long concluded.An O2 spokesperson explained that calls to Eircom’s 11811 and other directory enquiry services are charged as premium rate services. He also advised customers to check the rates before using any of these services.“Calls to 11811 cost up to €2.30 per minute depending on which price plan the customer is on. Should the customer ask to be connected to a number there is an additional call set up charge of up to €2.30 as well as the per minute charge depending on how long the call lasts. The costs of premium rate services are available at,” said a spokesperson.
