as long time hood river residents we have frequented all the restaurants in the area; in the past we have enjoyed good food at Crazy Pepper...even with the new owners. Alas, our streak is over as our last encounter was greeted by below average food. The chips served in advance of the meal were obviously left over from the last... More

Very enjoyable. Food was above average but not authentic. Service was remarkable. Drink prices were a little steep but worth it. Very clean establishment.

With two trips to Hood River, 2 years apart, we've visited this restaurant 3 times and found it DELICIOUS every time!! The Margaritas are fantastic in EVERY way, the food terrific, the wait staff kind and courteous. Every time we visit Hood River, we'll make a stop at the Crazy Pepper.

We love going here! I've been eating at Crazy Pepper for as long as I can remember. The owners are so nice. The chips and salsa are so good and they never look twice when you've already had three baskets full, lol! Tasty margaritas, too!

This is a small restaurant located in the downtown area next to the movie theater. Standard Mexican restaurant- been there for years. Nothing special or distinctive about it. It's closing soon to become a burger and sushi joint.

We don't eat out in Hood River too often, but we love Crazy Pepper! Always very yummy. They are not the fastest at getting food out, but sit back and enjoy each others company and pass the time with the free chips and salsa! Go a little early to beat the dinner crowd!

Not sure what it is about this spot for whatever reason, their interpretation of Mexican food doesn't come close to palatable. Service was slow and not worth the wait. Going back after the 1st negative experience, we crossed our fingers but lost that bet. Don't advise going even if you're desperate for chips and salsa. They just don't have the... More
