OMG. Pepe's is PEPtacular. Thank you, Beach Chick, for saving my life, yet again. We were cruising through Ramona with hangovers from a friend's birthday overnight in Temecula, and when I searched for a place in Ramona, you and your Pepe's reco popped up. Great tacos: cesina (?) and carnitas; man had lengua. But it was the salsas that cleared my head.
I have a policy of not targeting places for nasty grams- it's simply too easy to do, and typically is a function of the writer wishing to boost themselves at the expense of a the business owner.
I bring up my personal policy when I mention The Amerient cafe. Here's my review:

re: Beach Chick
Who said anything nasty? I read chowhound regularly looking for restaurant recommendations around Julian, and Jeremy's came up quite frequently, I was just trying to save people time in recommending it. I didn't say anything nasty about it, which could THEN, possibly, I guess, maybe, be construed as "boosting myself at the expense of the owner", who I dont know. I just said the restaurant was not my personal preference.
Thanks, Beach Chick, for the ideas. We'll give them a try!
Are you heading up to the grape stomping Festa this Saturday at Menghini Winery?
Couple of great places in the greater Ramona area..
Cheers, for one of the best burgers in town..they just won that title.
Also, I catered a party a couple of weeks and wrote a post about the excellent street tacos in an old Pizza Hut called Pepe's on Main Street.
They have a griddle with stools..it's a produce place with a taco shop inside.
Excellent carne asada, carnitas, cabeza, lingua, and cheese avo for me.
