This was my first visit to Sonora, and while the restaurant was recommended by our friends, I like hot and spicy food and wasn't expecting much. The waitress was friendly and checked back with us several times, and the food was very good (and spicy).

This was my 2nd time at the Peppery, and both times it was great! They have an incredible varied menu and everything seems to be very good. I chose a rib eye over the New York strip and it was perfectly cooked. Be warned though, it does come with a warning that it is not for "whiners." The habanero/garlic topping... More

Visited the Peppery Bar & Grill for the first time yesterday. My husband and I took our friends with us. We all ordered a different dish, and each of us decided each was excellent. Our orders included the pasta primavera (BEST EVER!), slimmy ribeye steak (my husband went nuts over it), fish tacos and the pork ribs for our friends... More

The Peppery GAR and BRILL (not bar and grill) has a great menu featuring peppers of all kinds. Not every dish is hot so it's suitable for even those with sensitive mouths. Their Peppery soup made with red peppers and cream is one of my favorites, along with the signature pepper steak. I don't drink but they have a get... More

Big portions, decent cooking, plenty of calories... Fish tacos are my favorite thing there though the tri tip sandwiches are also very good. Kids love the pizza but not a fan. You can have an ok wine by the glass but byob if u are having dinner.

Visiting Sonora area again and decided to finally try this place. First, I went on a Friday night, expected it to be busy, but that was an understatement. Hard to find parking but didnt take as long as I had feared. Once inside was greeted immediately and seated, as most of the younger crowd was hovering around the bar area... More

You had better love garlic if you plan to eat here. The food is pretty good, but most of it has a lot of garlic and pepper. The portion sizes were small for the price you pay.

What a fabulous find on our way home from the Sonora area! We were heading home from Pinecrest Lake when we realized our favorite pizza place, Pie in the Sky, was closed and going to open under new ownership. We had to find another place to stop for dinner so headed into Sonora, thinking we'd have more choices of restaurants.... More
