After tasting Chilli Peppers' She Crab Soup at the Seafood Festival, we decided to come here for Sunday brunch. This is a casual dining restaurant with a full bar. The menu is innovative with lots of TexMex entrees, grits combos, skillets and make your own Bloody Mary. Look for events and off menu specials as well. I had a breakfast... More

Food is delicious! They have a great variety of cuisine. I've eaten from their brunch menu, their lunch menu, and I've enjoyed the bar in the evening. Great spot that locals enjoy!

Chili Peppers has been a family favorite of ours for years! They have a little something for everyone! Their after hours bar has the perfect atmosphere for drinks with friends or a significant other.

Picked this place based on online reviews and proximity to our hotel. Very good food ... we had stuffed salmon, fried shrimp and a mushroom burger. Everything tasted great and portions were right as well. The server was very helpful and responsive. Since we arrived a bit late (~9 pm) than the normal OBX dinner time, there was only one... More

We have been to Chili Peppers a couple of years ago and decided it was time for another visit. The food was good but I was very disappointed when the sesame crusted tuna I ordered medium rare came well done and, thus, dry. The hostess who asked how the food was volunteered without asking to bring me another plate...........however, when... More

Wonderfully tasty meal! Steak and shrimp fajitas with lots of shrimp and steak. Best pico do Gallo I've ever eaten - smoky flavor. Our server made excellent suggestions which we took. Definitely going back!
