Pepito’s Philly Cheesesteaks, located at 252 25th St., will open to customers on June 1. This location formerly the home of Scrud’s Gourmet Grub, which closed in February.
OGDEN — A unique taste of Philadelphia is set to come to downtown Ogden.
Pepito’s menu will be focused primarily on cheesesteaks, with a mix of classic tastes and new takes on the sandwich. Some of these creations include the inferno Philly, which will be infused with ghost cheese and house “inferno” sauce, and a bacon Philly, according to manager Sheree Yu.
Owner Miguel Hernandez said he has worked in many different types of restaurants, but he’s always wanted to open a Philly cheesesteak restaurant. He says that Pepito’s will be a family-focused eatery with a sports bar-type atmosphere.
The restaurant’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and closed Sundays, according to Hernandez.
