“Huge portions and great salsa.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

We walked in for a late lunch and were seated immediately. Te service was fast and the food hit the spot. Between the sword fish tacos and chicken fajitas we enjoyed it all. The chips were warm and the red salsa was addictive! Would go back again without question.

“Busy Mex”

As we like Mexican food, we also tried this restaurant last time we where in Pacific Grove. A busy place! Good food, friendly staff en a quick service! So all you can desire when going to a restaurant.

“Great Mexican food..!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Peppers is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Pacific Grove. Obviously we're not the only ones who like Peppers...the place is always busy.

As usual, we had dinner there both nights we were in Pacific Grove. It seems real hard to break that habit...!!

We tried the Chicken Fajitas, the Chicken Mole Enchiladas (both of us...yummy!!) and the Carne Asada Steak.

There's never room for desert...!!

We'll be back.

We enjoyed a great lunch served by friendly staff in this busy place. We liked the fact that their dishes we tasty and that they used vegetable oil and not lard.

“Yummy, but noisy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

My family and I dined here over Labor Day weekend. It was packed, and we waited 45 minutes. It took a while for our wait staff to attend to us, but once they did...the service was fantastic! The portions were large, and the food above average.
