Fantastic Food

This is a regular stop on my visits to Cleveland. At least once each trip. You can't get any more fresh. They make everything right in front of you. The prices are reasonable, and the people could not be nicer. One of my favorite spots.

It's very similar to Chipotle and Qdoba. Everything is fresh and has good flavor. The portions could be better but not bad at all. I've only ever had the "bowl" which is actually served on a plate lol. They also sell bottled Coke products so I was able to have a Vanilla Coke with my meal!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the food. It is sooooo fresh and wonderful. I just can't say enough about Steve and his staff. The fish tacos on Friday are GREAT and be sure to get Steve's special sauce for them. I'm in love with their Mexican ice tea and have finally figured out how to make it at home. The lime... More

They make all the food as you order it. Burritos and salad in taco shell were very good. You pick what you want from many choices. Not a fancy place but nice. Staff is very pleasant. This was my second trip here and both have been very good. Clean inside and out.

Very similar to chiptole or qdoba. The quesadillas are good. The beans feel much cleaner/fresher in your mouth than chiptoles so that is a plus. The workers are extremely friendly and there is a frequent flyer card too! Definitely recommend this place!

What a pleasant surprise to find a hidden gem like this in Cleveland! The food is fresh, flavorful and affordable! The staff is friendly & very helpful. The restaurant is clean & so are their bathrooms! Very similar to Chipoltes, as you go down the line & pick & choose your ingredients, but UNLIKE Chipoltes, Chili Peppers is fresher, tastier...

My parents frequent this restaurant almost weekly and took me there on a recent trip to Cleveland. The ordering process is not unlike Chipotle's--you tell them what you want on your tortilla and they serve it up. The selection is more comprehensive than Chipotle's and the ingredients are fresh and flavorful. Portion sizes are large, so come with an appetite!... More

Chili Peppers is a favorite casual Mexican restaurant of mine. Set up something like Chipotle, but with better quality and service, Chili Peppers serves great lunches and dinners on E.185th.st. in Cleveland. Unlike Chipotle the burritos have far less rice and more of the good stuff. The staff is friendly and the whole experience is upbeat.
