“Great deals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

This restaurant provided quick, fresh Mexican food. You get huge portions, and the prices are very reasonable. The buffalo nachos and chicken burritos are awesome!

During the winter season they do close somewhat early (8:00PM), so don't wait to stop for your supper.

“Best Fish tacos ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

We are summer residents in Estes Park and love coming to Peppers (formerly Tulum's). I love the fish tacos. The fish is not breaded and is seared in a frying pan. The two sides I choose are the sweet potatoes and grilled vegetables (peppers & onions). They have a variety of toppings for the tacos and allow you to select as many or few as you want. The prices are very reasonable, the owner, Carolyn, is usually present and friendly and the taste of the food is incredible. Parking can be tight early in the day as they share parking with Egg & I but there is plenty of parking at dinner time when the other restaurant is closed.

“Fast, fresh, flavorful, affordable food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

With all the various meat, vegetable and toppings offered at Peppers, you can eat here regularly. We prefer the burritos. The rice and beans are always good. The shredded beef is moist, tender and beefy tasting. My spouse enjoys the pork with sweet potatoes and grilled vegetables. The queso is very mild, reminds me of warm pimento cheese. The restaurant is always very clean. It is one of the places in Estes Park that gets consistently excellent inspection reports from Larimer County. Even in winter, Peppers is usually open daily 11 am to 8 pm.

“Salty!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Let me start by saying I LOVE salt. I add it to 99% of my food. Had a smothered chicken burrito and was the saltiest thing I have ever gotten eating out. I did not add any before trying it (thank goodness) and had a hard time eating it. the rice and beans were excellent, but either the green chili or the chicken itself was way too salty. She had a combo plate with a vegetarian taco and cheese enchiladas and she really loved all of her food. Hopefully it was just a bad batch of chicken or green chili, because she really wants to try it again before we go home, lol. I will likely try something different next time and will update if it is any better.

“Typical Estes Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We've been wanting to try this for a while, but we're so leery of resort town restaurants, especially Estes where the food is usually mediocre at best but decided to give it a try. It did resemble Chipolte in atmosphere and set up, maybe we just got the wrong thing but got fish tacos, it looked great, they cooked the fish rather than heated it up and had black beans and jasmine rice, sounds great but had absolutely no flavor, except salt. So much my fingers are swelling up like crazy. Should have known better
