Glen's Margaritas are among the best around, especially the Blue Margarita. I'm pretty consistent in my dining choice which is... read more

The pepper is located in the town of Plattsburgh. It is definitely a student hang out. That is their call. We went on graduation weekend. They definitely are not used to the big food crowd. The food was very good, standard mexican stuff. The service was not. Our waitress was hustling and running all over, so it was not her... More

Attended a get together with my son and friends. We arrived early and sat at the bar. They only had one type of chard and it was FishEye, just an average cheap wine. The others had their Margarettas which they said were very good. The beer selection was average. Service by the bartender was really speedy and she was very... More

Great little place in downtown Plattsburgh. Very relaxed and cozy and food is quite scrumptious and plentiful. The food is also very fresh with ingredients from local purveyors. I would highly recommend this! We came here for my nephew who was looking at the college and this is a great find! :)
