Always visit Peppers when in Port St. Joe. Authentic Mexican and excellent service. Fresh salsa and chips are delish! Seafood Fajitas were excellent.

This was our 1st vacation to this area of Florida. I like Mexican food if it is really great. My wife can take it or leave it, but will eat it when it is really great (and a clean place!) We decided to try Pepper's since it had some good reviews. We went early enough that it wasn't too busy... More

The food here is good, fast, and the service is great. We came here on Valentine's Day, and the service was slower than other nights, but that was understandable. The drinks are good too, and a great compliment to the food. The only thing that brings this restaurant down from five stars is the environment - if you don't get... More

Peppers in downtown St. Joe is what I've come to expect in a Mexican restaurant. It is crowded and noisy and the walls are painted with bright orange, etc. Don't expect comfort or luxury as the seats are hard and tables are bare. The staff is mostly Hispanic but they are very adequate. The food is what you should expect... More

We eat here because the food is good and you can count on the wait staff to be friendly and attentive. Reasonably priced for the area and portions are large. Good place to get your Mexican food fix!

My husband and I enjoyed our meal at Peppers. The food and drinks were both good and arrived quickly. Our waiter was very friendly. Prices were very reasonable.

We stumbled on this restaurant. Lucky us. Margaritas and dinner were excellent. We were lucky to go before 7. After 7 the place was filled.
