The folks at the Dallas Observer are relieved and grateful that our favorite Deep Ellum lunch spot has reopened in bigger, sweeter digs a few blocks east of the old location on Elm Street. We come here for the cheerful service and excellent lunch specials, including Pescado Vera Cruz, a lightly breaded catfish fillet served with sautéed peppers, onions and tomatoes; guiso, beef tips simmered in a tasty brew of tomatoes, garlic and spices; pork tamales in tomatillo sauce; and the usual Tex-Mex combos, prepared with above-average flair. Pepe's & Mito's has also expanded its hours and now accepts reservations. Those of us who used to wait in line at lunch can cheer that change, too.
