I have NO tolerance for capsaicin, so when I wandered past this place I didn't have high hopes, but I was curious and went inside. There's a large wraparound bar inside, with staff who KNOW THEIR STUFF! Tell them what you like (in my case, mild mild mild) and they will bring you several samples that fit your preferences. Then,... More

We stopped here because our friends were familiar with this place. It is set up like a bar and everyone enjoyed sampling a wide variety of sauces. They provide chips and will let you sample just about everything. Cute store and a fun experience.

This place is about two blocks off of Duval St. Set up much like a bar, there are sauces surrounding you when you sit down. Four of us stopped in to see what its all about. Bring your own drinks, they do not sell anything to drink here ! You will at the very least want some water. We were... More

We stopped by here during a food tour of Key West. This was a place we could have skipped all together. The presentation was nicely set up for a tasting though. There were chips on the counter to try with the sauces. After that, it was all downhill. The owner, Pete, tried introducing the sauces while telling jokes. The jokes... More

what a neat place to visit. Heard from friends of a hot sauce store. Went next door and bought a few cold ones and settled in for a "tasting"....Sampled a lot of sauces and settled on 3 to take home. Staff was very friendly and was a nice diversion from walking Duval street

When in Key West you must visit Peppers for a hot sauce tasting. Come on in and BYOB. Have a seat and allow the staff to provide a taste testing of various hot sauces. So much fun!! Pete the owner is a great guy. We always visit and have our sauces shipped home. FUN FOR ALL.

Not just a shop but an experience in itself!! On a hot day in Key West there's nothing better than Air Conditioning and Hot sauce!! Brilliant service and an unreal selection of hawt sauce!! The staff were brilliant allowing me and my wife to try unlimited sauces, and adjusting the selections to my own taste. The only problem was we... More

HOLY JALAPENOS! I visited your store with a Majesty Of The Seas group led by Sue last week. We sampled a number of your sauces, including several of your hottest ones. No effect on me at the time, but, MAN, I FELT IT LATER! If you need a visual pic, think of the t-shirt with the dog eating peppers, then... More

I visited here as part of a tour package while on a cruise. As part of that tour I had a chance to sample various sauces. The sauces were good amd ranged from sweet to 'you need to sign a waiver to sample this one'. I am not a fan of spicy foods so unfortunately I did not try the... More

Great place to visit if one is into hot spices. The ability to taste the various sauces is great. The staff were superb and very helpful. The labels on the bottles are creative and interesting, worth a photo or two with permission.
