Iconic Barrow Restaurant Burns Down
Pepe’s North of the Border is no more. The world’s northernmost Mexican restaurant burned to the ground on Saturday. The fire also sent a good deal of smoke into the attached Top of the World Hotel. The owner says if you have reservations, you’d better call and check before you fly to Barrow. Pepe’s was a Barrow institution since 1978. Owner Fran Tate vows to rebuild.
