We stopped in to have a quick bite and beverage. The food was excellent and there was lots of it. I couldn't finish my beef burrito. The beef was spectacular and tender. The server was very efficient and friendly. I noticed that there were only two servers and they were really busy and constantly moving. They were doing an exceptional... More

Never dined here although a resident for over 60 years. Tried it on a friday night, big mistake. At 8:00pm place was full and VERY loud. We therefore waited to be seated outside which was a 30 minute wait. Service was slow, well very slow, but when the food finally arrived it was quite good. Not good enough to wait... More

The menu is filled with tasty choices, from mild to spicy. Many vegetarian options as well! The margarita choices are worth every cent - try the lavender one! There is often a wait to be seated but that is because the restaurant is small. Well worth the wait!

To start off, it was probably bad on my part to go there considering I have an onion allergy, but my best friend wanted to celebrate her birthday there. The margaritas were alright. Did not taste different from anywhere else I've been. What completely threw me off was the service was sadly slow. Yes, I get it, it gets busy.... More

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Plattsburgh.....not what I remembered....the food and service were terrible! The waitress was not personable and not attentive to our needs (nor to the people at the next table). We had to repeatedly ask for items and remind our waitress of our requests, it was not a busy time of day.... More

Went for dinner, and was pleasantly surprised that the food was authentic. It's hard to find Mexican food as good as here in the North Country.

I had written a previous review which was based on service which had not been good. I am officially REVOKING that previous review due to the excellent experience we had a couple of weeks ago at the Pepper! Wow! Service was prompt and friendly, and we were seated and provided some amazing chips and salsa very quickly. The music suited... More

I love this place! Everything I've had there is delicious, the drinks are amazing and the staff is great. The bright and festive ambiance makes it great place to go on a date, or go with a group of people for some yummy food. A must visit!

Went here with my daughter's boyfriend. Beer selection was pretty good, had a Negro Modelo a nice dark Mexican lager. Service was okay, the waitress was pleasant, but pretty busy at lunchtime. The chips served in a basket could have been fresher, but the salsa was fresh tasting. But if we wanted more, they wanted $5 for another small basket.... More
