Santa Barbara County firefighters responded to a fire inside Pepe's Restaurant in Old Town Goleta early Thursday morning.

At approximately 3:12 a.m., crews arrived in the 5800 block of Gaviotat Street and discovered a working fire with heavy smoke. Crews aggressively attacked the fire and ventilated the building.

The majority of damage appears to be in the attic area but the restaurant is currently closed.

There were no injuries and the cause is under investigation.

Hopefully they had decent insurance and get up and running again soon. I've been looking forward to a Chile Verde Burrito at Pepe's for a while.

Oh darn. Have had lunch there a number of times over the years with coworkers from the R&D industry in Goleta. Here's wishing them the best. Hope they rebuild. :-)
