Dining and Nightlife

**Pepe’s burned down Sep­tem­ber 1, 2013 and is not cur­rent­ly open, you can read the arti­cle here** The place gets by most­ly on nov­el­ty – Mex­i­can in the Arc­tic” — and the pop­u­lar­i­ty of Fran Tate.

The place can get filled up quick­ly, so call ahead. They do take-out and even deliver.

It’s the bet­ter piz­za place in town, served fresh and hot. The cal­zones are huge, the view is good (sit on the sec­ond floor if you can) and they make every­thing when ordered. They also have Mex­i­can and some Ital­ian and seafood on the menu. But stick to the piz­za and cal­zones. The ser­vice can be slow, but main­ly because they’re cook­ing your food fresh. Lunch spe­cials are good deals for the money.
