Second time at Pepper’s in a week. The first time was fantastic – this second time was polar opposite... The food quality was good, as expected. However, the order came out wrong and service was very slow with only five other tables in the restaurant being taken.

Food was not as described on menu. Low quality and "thrown on plate" presentation.

Food was very tasty and prices reasonable. Service on the other hand was not. Seems to to busy to handle the situation. Took to long to get second round of drinks and then it wasn’t what I ordered.

excellent food; service can be slow sometimes but the margaritas make up for it!

Service very slow despite the place being rather slow. However, it was after I went to the restroom that I noticed our server handling tables at the very back part of the restaurant - we were seated outside. That is a management issue. Food was good.

Nice atmosphere, prices a little high. You should have an a la cart taco menu tapas style.

Everything would have been great except the temperature of the room was extremely hot. When I asked I was told that it was because they had the doors opened to the patio. Inside seating should not be tortured to give AC to outdoor seating.

Ceviche was excellent. One of the only Mexican restaurants I've gone to that actually have homemade corn tortillas!

The food was good, the patio was awesome on a beautiful day. To get a margarita that wasn’t a mix, it was $16 which I thought was a little pricy, but it was a large size. The salsa was very good, spicy and good with cilantro; I just wish the chips they served were better.

Love, love, love the food. The beer and wine selections have been their only flaw over the years. Yes, they have the typical Mexican beers, sangria and margaritas but, they need help diversifying the beers on tap and have better wine selections. Other than that, it is our favorite Mexican restaurant.

My husband found the experience better than I did. He had steak Fajitas and felt they were good. Not great; good! My margarita was tasteless and I ordered the cheese Chile Relleno. It was soggy and the cheese flavorless. The retried beans were good tasting although not much texture. It was very loud and our server stressed. I gave the star review as middle of the road to reflect an average between my husband and me. I wouldn’t go again. There are much better restaurants in town.

Not nearly as good as our 10 March experience. Waitress was lost. Our friends tortillas were late arriving and cold. Our Carne Asada Fajita beef was too tough to bite through as opposed to our previous visit when it was very good.

Jesus did a great job as our server. Cool place with good daily specials. Food was very good. Fajitas had great flavor and it was a good amount.

We had reservations for 7:00 pm. When we got there our table was not ready. We had to wait for 10 minutes for the table to get ready. While we were waiting a party with the same number of people walked in off the street with no reservations and was seated before us.

We enjoyed well cooked, attractively plated entrees. We thought the food was several levels above the usual Mexican restaurant food.
Even though the restaurant was busy, service was good and our waitress very pleasant. We will definitely return.
