Wish it was better

Really was hoping this was going to be "the" place to eat in Kernersville. The food is lacking in flavor. Just average. Serve and atmosphere is great. Prices ok. Probably will not be back after 3 trips.

Just yuck! The eggs Benedict at Sunday were like hard boiled eggs. Sugary collard greens and tough green beans...seriously not good food at all...such a disappointment ! Even the service was lacking and it was not busy!

The descriptions of the food on the menu will make you want to try several different things, but I've been three times since their opening and I haven't had anything that stands out as something that I would tell someone they must go there and try. It's okay. But for the price, okay isn't okay. The service has been consistently... More

This restaurant has so much potential and should easily best its competitors in this small town but it consistently comes up short. The food and presentation show lack of interest from the kitchen despite a recent makeover of the menu. Service can be very inconsistent as noted by other reviewers. Do yourself and your wallet a favor and try one... More

I have been frequenting this restaurant since it opened. It's a convenient location, so that keeps us returning. Their new menu is okay, but lacks pizazz. I tend to get the same things, as the menu does not change as often as it did when it first opened. The flatbreads are good but I tend to stay away from them... More

J. Pepper's serves a wide variety of traditional Southern style meals. They offer half price wine on Wednesday's. I have been several times and have never had a bad meal. The service is always prompt and friendly. The prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend J. Peppers if you are looking for some good southern cooking.

Went here with a large group. They accomodated us well but the server kept mixing up drink orders and food. Otherwise, food was outstanding and the server apologized and did everything in his power to make it right. Will return

There are not too many good restaurants in Kernersville, but I can always count on J Peppers to come through. Their menu is unique, and they change it throughout the year. Good atmosphere, especially if it is warm and you sit out on the patio. The price is right in line with the food, service is always top notch, and... More

Went at 5 and took until 5:45 to receive food, even though we ordered as soon as we got there. When food finally received, all fries were cold. Bread wasn't brought out until we had been sitting for 25 minutes. The food was pretty good.

This place was terrible. The food was barely warm, the fries were old and hard, and the scallops made me violently ill for hours after i got home. I would never eat there again. It took forever to get our food, and it seemed like it had been sitting and getting cold when we got it. Plus, i paid 18.00... More
