I've only been once but want to go back. I had the gumbo which was a little disappointing but not bad. It was extra thick like it was the bottom of the pot. I would have preferred it to have some broth. The flavor was good, but too strong and I think some broth would have balanced it. My friend... More

Nice independent, casual restaurant. Many items are hot or peppery, hence the name, but there's plenty for tender tongues too. I had the seafood linguini and it was very good, with a very generous serving of seafood, scallops, prawns and baby shrimp. Very reasonable prices, only downside might be the house wine wasn't very good, but in fairness was very... More

The service is great, food is great (big variety) any plate is good....The food is always fresh and steaks are consistently tender and well cooked. Waitresses are attentive and pleasing. Service is prompt and waiting is very short...I highly recommend this place to anyone passing through or living in the area.....

OK .. pay attention to the name of the restaurant ... food will be served with lots of pepper unless you ask for mild! I had a yummy skirt steak with (yes) peppery shrimp on it. Lots of crisply cooked veggies. The salad greens looked a bit old, but as I am gluten free they made sure my food was... More

This is advertised as a bar and grill. However they only serve beer and wine. They are located in east Sonora, so you have to drive there from everywhere. The menu is very large, lots of different things, but all based on peppers. We had the pasta, one seafood linguine and the other angel hair capellini with artichokes, tomatoes, garlic.... More

We went to The Peppery per our hotel's recommendation and we were not disappointed! Everyone was super nice and the timing of food/drink delivery was great. The food portions were huge! Everything we had was cooked perfectly and delicious! The selections are varied so there was something for everyone and the prices are very reasonable!
