Really the only Mexican place in town. Good drink specials and black bean soup is excellent. Stay away from the fajitas...disappointing.

The Pepper serves delicious Mexican food with options for vegetarian dining as well. The portion sizes are generous and the price is reasonable. You can go very spicy or mild, if you choose.

Ordered a margarita and a chimichanga (chicken) after a long, hot day of golf at nearby Duff Point Golf Resort. Wife ordered the taco salad. My chimichanga was a world beater - easily one of the best I've had. Wife enjoyed her taco salad. Good portion sizes, friendly service, and a fine margarita were enough to draw us back in... More

Home town Mexican at best! But their margaritas keep me coming back for more! Servers must be new because they forgot our drinks twice and completely forgot to bring extra hot sauce! The out door seating is quaint :)

I have been here several times only because my wife likes margaritas. That is the only thing good here. I have had pretty much all the items on the menu except seafood and they are all average or below. The main issue to me is the noise! The acoustics are horrible in there, the chairs are uncomfortable, the noise is... More

I finally was going to try the resto. I've wanted to for years and have just never gotten around to it. We went for lunch, or at least we tried to go for lunch. It was supposed to be open at 11:30. We got there after 11:30 and the door was locked, no sign on the door or anything. I... More

I have frequented the pepper many times. The food is always great and the margaritas are a must. Sometimes there is a line and you have to wait a while to be seated because the place is quite small. The wait is well worth it and I have never been disappointed.

A great place to get a wonderful appetizer and beverage. Of course the margaritas are the best. You can even purchase the mix and take home a piece of the Pepper to make your own margs at home. As the bartender and they will offer you ratio of mix to margs. Always so accommodating in making your dish minus the... More
