We love going here! I've been eating at Crazy Pepper for as long as I can remember. The owners are so nice. The chips and salsa are so good and they never look twice when you've already had three baskets full, lol! Tasty margaritas, too!

This is a small restaurant located in the downtown area next to the movie theater. Standard Mexican restaurant- been there for years. Nothing special or distinctive about it. It's closing soon to become a burger and sushi joint.

We don't eat out in Hood River too often, but we love Crazy Pepper! Always very yummy. They are not the fastest at getting food out, but sit back and enjoy each others company and pass the time with the free chips and salsa! Go a little early to beat the dinner crowd!

Not sure what it is about this spot for whatever reason, their interpretation of Mexican food doesn't come close to palatable. Service was slow and not worth the wait. Going back after the 1st negative experience, we crossed our fingers but lost that bet. Don't advise going even if you're desperate for chips and salsa. They just don't have the... More

We are bicycle touring the northwest. We have eaten at hundreds of Mexican restaurants over the last few years. This restaurant is nothing special. Not too sure what the rave reviews are all about. Probably from people that haven't eaten at a decent Mexican restaurant or friends and relatives. The food is mediocre, but edible. The prices are high for... More

Hosting visitors from New Zealand and Vancouver BC, their first adventure into Mexican food. From shrimp salad to a fajita burrito, Pollo a la Crema, enchiladas, and a chile relleno passed around, followed by their flan, everything, including the service, was exceptional. Only bad news is that the Crazy Pepper set a high standard for future samplings of Mexican cuisine.... More

We've been coming to this place for years. Unfortunately, our last meal here was only just ok. We often rely on this place when we're very hungry (portions large) & for the great air on an incredibly hot day. Also, it's close to the theaters which makes an convient diner. I'm sure that there are better & more authentic places,... More

You can barely see this restaurant from the main strip in town, but we happened upon it along a little side street. It has a good sign but it's squeezed in between two other businesses and is well hidden. We were seated right away, there wasn't very busy. It took a while to get water, chips and salsa and our...
