Pepe’s is an institution for college students at Bing.
Pepe has been serving his famous meatball subs and chili dogs for over 20 years in the Southern Tier and Pennsylvania. He does mostly festivals during the summer, but for the rest of the year he comes back to Binghamton for his loyal student customers. What a great man.
When you are drunk and you go over to Pepe’s, it’s like you’ve suddenly found a home. It’s hard not to have enough money to get a sub, they are only 2 dollars or so. It’s soft, it’s good, it’s easy, it hits the spot.
I’ve gone during daylight hours. It’s not as crowded, and you can talk to the man at length. The food somehow still hits the spot. It’s quiet, like a tranquil stream switching directions.
Pepe the man is one of the nicest people you may find. Pepe the persona is a cross between Mario and Rick Moranis. He seems so happy to be serving the students his meatball subs. I only wish he’d settle down with a nice college girl one day. Thanks Pepe.
