The spinach artichoke dip was incredible! My burger bun was a little cold, but otherwise everything was wonderful. Great service as well even though they were very busy.

Flash fried okra to die for. Only other restaurant I’ve had them at was in Tampa. Excellent French Onion soup. Noise level was to be expected in that atmosphere. Wait staff had issues but that too was expected with the labor shortage. Will go again.

French onion soup was great! Wonderful staff. The food took a while to come out but my guess is with Covid they have the staffing issue that everyone is having.

We ordered the potato skins and they were out of those, I ordered the mahi sandwich and it really wasn’t that great . We had a great server and she had a great personality. It was a great time with family.

We waited more than 45 min for our food to arrive, the food was not as expected, we ordered kids meals, pepper sampler (burnt), steak sandwich (ok) and burger (not very tasty). I will not come back!

Normally good, but problems this visit including sandwich left out ingredients, burger had enough salt for several, soup not delivered. Service was less probably because they also were bartenders. If an automatic gratuity had not been billed (party of 6), it would have been less. In the long run, we recommend.

Super welcoming staff! We were all impressed by the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. We had a part of teen and the accommodated us almost immediately.

Food was good. Nothing really stood out as superb but everyone seemed to be satisfied with their choices. Portions are more than adequate. Onion rings app was just ok.

They made every effort to accommodate us on short notice. We sat at the bar and had a great meal. It was simple food like a burger and fries but it was very good. The bartender is outstanding and again, as most restaurants, they are running with a skeleton crew and they did their best to provide us with good services.

Very busy today (the start of leaf peeking season and it was raining) so the place was slammed since there was no outdoor seating. Quality did not suffer though. The wait staff was a little behind but the experience was great as always. Of course, we had OpenTable reservations. 🙂

You have to be doing something right to be open for over 40 years, even amidst a global pandemic. Food was spot on as usual. Our server was great. Now if only Jack would bring back those baked potatoes!

Pepper’s is a local favorite and a must for ASU alumni! The food is always excellent, and service is great! The reservation through OpenTable saved us over an hour wait! They had our table setup and were ready for us when we arrived! Fried mushroom appetizer was great (according to the friends with me), the Southwest Chicken Wrap! Everyone loved their food and beverages! We will most definitely visit Pepper’s when we are back in Boone, NC!

We’re in Boone for a few days and honestly the restaurant name caught my eye because Pepper was our cat’s name. 😀
We both had the blackened mahi-mahi sandwich and it was delicious. The curly fries were the best I’ve ever had. We sat outside so I can’t comment about the inside of the restaurant but we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and would definitely go back.

Pepper’s is a great diner/deli restaurant with a good number of choices to choose from. The variety in everything from appetizers to desserts should please everyone. The atmosphere is laid back, with a oldie time feel, along with App State memorabilia. Very comfy. Staff is very friendly and I can’t wait to come back to try more dishes.
