Here’s a short list of Jacksonville’s "lesser known" restaurants that you should try.

Pepe's Hacienda

Three weeks ago you could visit Pepe's Hacienda and order three tacos on freshly made corn tortillas with a side of refried beans and rice for $5. Alas, things have changed.  

It's probably a good thing, but they've upped their prices by about $2 on most of their meals, which means you can still get a delicious, fresh meal at this place, but you don't have to feel like you're ripping Pepe off.

Need guacamole? They'll mash a whole avocado on a plate for you. Like beef tongue? Order it for your taco or Mexican sandwich. Seafood soup? Yes. Shrimp ceviche? Yes. Thick, crunchy, "homemade" tortilla chips and salsa? With every meal. And for those who like things on the regular, you will not go wrong with the steak, pork or chicken tacos. And yes, they serve breakfast.

This restaurant is connected to a Hispanic grocer where in the back of the store you can order freshly made Chicharrones by the pound.
