awesome atmosphere, delicious food and best margaritas in Pburgh

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!

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

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

Been to the Pepper a few times. Depending on the time or day of week depends on how well you may be served. The wait line can be a challenge - that's all I'll say on that. Glen's Margaritas are among the best around, especially the Blue Margarita. I'm pretty consistent in my dining choice which is a chicken &... 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
