We had the guacamole, top shelf margaritas, blackened shrimp tacos, gringo (beef) taco and the chicken enchilada plate.

The beef taco was pretty bland.

The margaritas and guacamole were good not outstanding.

The blackened shrimp tacos and chicken enchilada plate were terrific.

Great food. Definitely a place for a younger crowd. VERY loud inside. We sat on the patio and it was chilly...the heater near us was broken. Otherwise, enjoyed it. We will go back when it’s warmer and can sit outside comfortably.

Ambiance: Didn’t realize they would allow smoking on the patio; great way to ruin a nice weather evening.

Bathrooms: Location only has one stall for men and women which made the bathroom trip time seemingly unreasonable for how large the restaurant is.

Music: Even though we were seated on the patio, walking to and from the host stand and bathroom,raised commentary from both myself and my wife about the music volume. If we had been inside we wouldn’t not have been able to talk to each other.

Food: Nachos were decent.

Parking: I know they’ve got a small lot, but in general I dislike being forced to valet.

All in all, I think we’d probably only come back if we had a hankering for tacos/nachos and everything else nearby was booked solid.

I love their tacos but I every time I've ever gone they have the WORST service. Their music is so loud that it is impossible to have a conversation without leaning across the table to hear the other people in your party. Also, legitimately the most disgusting bloody mary I've ever had. They didn't offer to take it off my bill and charged me for it even though I couldn't drink it.

this place is really not kid friendly due to the bottomless mimosa on the weekends tends to get really loud and ppl are really drunk extremely early

Great food, service and setting.

A bit overpriced for such small portions but the food is good

I enjoyed tasting all the (homemade) hot sauces , actually purchased one.

AND THE DRINKS WERE 😩👌🏾👍🏾 only needed one.

This was my third or fouth time at Red Pepper. It is a solid place for Mexican food. Their queso is awesome, and I really like their skinny margarita. I usually get the shrimp quesadilla, which comes with rice, and it is also really good. My main pet peeve is that there is no self parking, valet only. I never have cash so this usually involves a trip to the ATM on the way. It's also usually very loud.

I never write reviews, but felt compelled to do so this time because of the absolutely inexcusable service we received. The waiter was essentially nonexistent. No exaggeration that we waited at our table for an extra 45 mins just to pay the bill. We eventually just got up to talk to the hostess who then said "wow look your waiter is even coming back to personally hand you the bill". Personally hand us the bill, as if that was special? I thought that was normal protocol. So bad.

Started our Girls Night Out at Red Pepper. Our party grew from our reserved party of 6 to 9 over a hour and the staff accommodated us without any issue. Our server was slow at taking our drink orders and bringing our drinks, but other than that everything else was great. I frequent this restaurant for brunch or a quick drink, but this was my first time reserving a table.

It was alright. My tacos were pretty minimal when it came to the fillings. Last time I was here, they packed on the fillings but this time it was way more tortilla than meat. It's pretty hit or miss. I guess it just depends on who's cooking or managing.

Brunch options were mediocre at best, but it seemed like a fun place to come back for just drinks and apps on the patio. The non-brunch menus items we tried (tacos) were not bad. The various mimosa options were pretty good, but the Bloody Mary was undrinkable and had to be sent back.

Service is usually so much better, we could hardly get our waitress to acknowledge us today and when she did she kept forgetting things. I was brought a drink in a dirty glass that I had to return, had to ask for sour cream 3 times to go on my tacos and by the time I got it my tacos were cold, needless to say it was a frustrating experience today

The best chicken taquitos I have ever had. All our food was excellent! Which Came First, Shrimp and Grits with Chorizo, The Cubano and the Chicken Burrito. The Habanero Guacamole was terrific! A great brunch menu. Just remember the bottomless Mimosas can't be served before 12:30p on Sundays due to Georgia Law so there is that! Not their fault the brunch bill has not been passed.

We were not that impressed. We met some friends here for Sunday brunch. The service was fine. Our waitress was on top of things and kept the bottomless mimosas bottomless. The food was not that great. I had the Chilaquiles Fiesta. The Bloody Mary was not mixed at all. It was very loud and just not my scene anymore. Maybe I was too sober... May be more appropriate for 20 somethings.

The bottomless mimosas barely have any champagne in them and are so sugary. Our server was awful, beyond slow, not terribly friendly, and probably needs to find a new profession.

It was kind of annoying to have a $15 bottomless mimosa special advertised, only to find out it's $3 extra for the flavored ones. Also, the flavor appeared to be syrup instead of juice, which was a little disappointing. We also had the grumpiest server in the place. It was okay, but not my favorite brunch spot. It was also really noisy.

Bottomless Mimosas were great, food was okay. Service was slow until we finally got a server then they were back and forth for refills almost every 5 minutes on the dot. Would recommend for a boozy brunch. We had 7 people and they were able to accommodate easily. Valet service was very handy as well.

Fun spot to go with friends for good mexican and strong margs! Just went for brunch and they had $15 bottomless mimosas on top of a yummy brunch menu. The waitresses were very attentive and fast with topping off our mimosas, so we definitely got our money's worth!
