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! :)

Have been meaning to try this place for awhile and am glad we did. The food tasted very fresh and was spiced just right. The staff was all very friendly. Will definitely go back!

I went to the Pepper a few years ago and had the best chili rellenos ever so I was excited to finally have another chance to eat there. They must have a new cook. My chili was a soggy, over breaded, over- cheesed mess with a smear of mole sauce on top. The beans tasted canned and the rice was... More

I was quite surprised when visiting a friend in Plattsburgh last spring. Quality food at affordable prices. The place is tiny, but has good food and good margaritas. I have eaten Mexican food all over northern Mexico and the US southern border. Don't miss out if you want Mexican while you are in Plattsburgh.
