The Daily Meal’s 101 Best Casual Restaurants in American rating.

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 1.45.28 PMPepe’s has done it again. We came in the top 5 of the 101 best casual restaurants in America according to The Daily Meal.
The Daily Meal first needed to establish some criteria to rate “Casual” restaurants.

So what makes a restaurant casual, exactly? It goes far beyond the dress code. Our main criterion was the price factor: Can two people fill themselves up and get out for less than $50, excluding tip and alcohol? Other factors we took into account were an overall comfortable and relaxed ambiance, a “destination” status (that is, is the place worth traveling for?), and how long each restaurant has been around for.

Our family would like to thank our guests, family and friends for all your support over the last 90 years. I guess that means we hit The Daily Meals requirement of “how long a restaurant has been around for!”
