This was a quick stop to get a meal before a show. Line to get seated was long but we were able to get a spot at the bar. Great service and great food.

I had lunch at The Pepper. I ordered the Chilaquiles de Chipotle for $14, which I thought was very expensive for what I got. Essentially, it was a plate of nachos. The tortillas were just corn chips and the sauce was so salty that I...More

We were passing through town on our way to Montreal and stopped for lunch as we always go first for Mexican. The shredded beef soft taco was outstanding! Excellent impression for a first time visitor.

We have not eaten at the Pepper in two years. Our last experience was disappointing. The chips were a little heavy and we did not care for the salsa. I had tortilla soup. It was also heavy and overly filling. My wife and a burrito...More
