IMOHO...it's not that big a deal....
And really, who's it hurting to take the pesos? We always did it when I worked retail in high school and never had a problem.
I've lived and worked in two border states....Texas and Arizona...and taking pesos now and then was never a big deal.
It was not an everyday occurrence but was never treated as a huge deal. But then we never advertised the fact that we might do it. (usually was as a favor to a friend of the boss who also knew the exchange rate)
This is a trial run that this pizza shop is trying out as a favor to its customers. No doubt, it is more of a goodwill thing and likely will not be used that often.
BTW the boss in Arizona had a vacation house in Mexico.....and was not Mexican but rather of German and English ancestry....and had both Mexican money and American money on them often. A lot of Americans around Phoenix had vacation and retirement homes in Puerto Penasco aka Rocky Point, Mexico.
Edited to add...Jay Leno made a joke about this last night saying that it was hard enough to get the right change back when it was US money, let alone working out the exchange rate.
