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... read 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.
