your tamales

Our Story

36 years ago, a man, and a woman had a dream.  They wanted to create the world’s best tasting tamal.  They knew that in order to achieve this, the tamal had to be prepared by hand and also use only the freshest ingredients.


their vision

Customers from El Paso as well as from other parts of Texas and across the nation have tasted and experienced first hand the true authentic taste of Pepe’s Tamales.

You're the reason we put forth our best each and every day. We choose to purchase our produce, meats, and cheeses from our network of locally-owned suppliers. Our vision for the future is one that realizes that the best tamales must be made by hand, using only the freshest ingredients available. To that end, our mission is simple: Disdain the expeditious in favor of the delicious. We think it's a winning formula, and we hope you agree.

"Best tamales I have ever eaten. Now we don't have a family event without Pepe's tamales! They are truly an El Paso treasure."

Several years later, their idea and dream finally became a reality. On January, 1978, Jose and Ofelia Reyes opened Pepe’s Tamales in El Paso, Texas.
