“chocolate and chilli ice cream - yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This place lived pretty much up to it's reputation. Excellent molé and other suitably spiced foods. Basically very thing contains shilli pepper in some shape or form cut the kids liked it too. Nice atmosphere - a bit like eating in somebodies kitchen then you get to post on the big blackboard what you'd most like to do before you die !

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

You are almost in New Mexico, so you are going to find NewMex, not TexMex food. If you can't decide on your sauce, ask for Christmas, and you will get half Green chili sauce and half red.

Food is fantastic as are the prices. Atmosphere is pleasant and restaurant is conveniently located downtown. Casual dining. Lunch can be crowded, but service is fast.

“Fun vacation dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Read about Pepperhead online, so during our stay in Cortez it was the first place we tried. It was marvelous! Starting with the blood orange margarita, I knew I was in the right place. Excellent service, crispy rellenos, and fun decor made for a great start to our vacation. By the time we were done the place was packed and there was a wait, so don't go too late.

“Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

A local, very friendly little restaurant right downtown on the main street. The food was quite good and the prices were very reasonable. The service was especially efficient and super friendly
