Pepe’s reopening in January

In December 2020 Goleta icon Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant at 254 Orange Avenue was damaged by a fire. “It was a kitchen fire,” said owner Osiris Castellanos at the time. “It destroyed all of our kitchen equipment and there was smoke damage throughout the building. We will hopefully open by March or April 2021.” Since we are at least 6 months past the due date several readers asked me about their status so I reached out to management and was told that the current plan is to reopen in January 2022. I am hearing that they decided to replace the entire roof, the entire kitchen, and a fix a variety of other things, which is the cause of the extended downtime.
