Had the poblano rellano. You should get it too. It was by far the best I've ever had. Margarita's are great. Great atmosphere.

My wife and I come here quite a bit! She always orders the Carnitas and I order the cheese and asparagus enchilada. Old habits are hard to break. We have ordered tacos before and liked them. We'll order nachos too if we're really hungry. My son orders the Burrito when he comes with us. It's huge, so you better be... More

We visit the Pepper after a long day at Plattsburgh beach. The restaurant is small and very crowded. There was a waiting of 45 minutes for seating outside. So we decide to go inside. For the drink, we try the Mimosa and Sangria. Very good and not expensive (3$ each, it was on special). Chips and salsa were served at... More

Hard to believe such great food about as far away from Mexico as you can get. Great meal and service. Highly recommend.

We paid 27.00 for two meals take-out. Way overpriced. The rice and beans tasted microwaved and/or boxed. My chimichanga had large peppers of every kind and not much else in it. The beans were very runny, and practically sliding outta the box. The. Meals were very expensive and poor for taste, I will not go back or recommend it.

The Pepper is alwasy busy. I think this is because you can always find something that you will like. Excellent margarita's. My favorite dish is their mussel appetizer. When I was there last for an early dinner I tried, for the first time, their mole chicken dish, which was very good. I would have it again. The wait staff is... More

It looked run down from the outside, so I went in to check it out ahead of lunch. The place reeked of what I suggest may have been a bug spray, and the menu was dull-typed & not very clean. Sorry, it would need to get up to par to suit me. I wouldn't eat there.

We have been starved for good Mexican food and thought to give this a try. Salsa is good but not much else. Fish tacos were passable but rice and beans were terrible. Pass this one by.
