The peppery is at the top of my list of favorite restsurats in Sonora? The food is great, the staff friendly and David, the owner, always there to say hello. If someone wants good food then go to the Peppery!!!!!

We had dinner here and this was a great find. The staff were very friendly, service was excellent and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed our meal and would come back if we come back to the area.

The Peppery is a good place to eat and they have an Avocado Salad that's great. My Husband really likes their hamburgers. Besides being on the pricey side, it's a sports bar and very loud at times. But the Servers are very good as well.

Just about everything on the menu contains peppers of some sort, and of all heats. The tri-tip dip sandwich was excellent, and contained a mild Ortega chili ( to my delight!) The huge mound of french fries that came with the sandwich was more that could be eaten, and they were very tasty, not greasy. All in all, an enjoyable... More

We ordered 2 different burgers to take back to our lake house - wow they were amazing. My chipotle burger was the best I've ever had. The coleslaw and fries were also delicious. The service was fast, courteous and there was a nice waiting area for us. We aren't in to takeaway much but if we lived here we would... More

I LOVE this place. I love the Peppery Cheesesteak but beware, it's spicy. My favorites are the pasta's where the homemade bread pairing is excellent. Add a glass of wine for ambiance and you just made your meal a gourmet retreat!

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
