We stopped in for dinner on a Thursday evening and had a most delicious dinner. Even better was the service!

We came here craving some Mexican food and left a bit disappointed. The food was ok, service was ok. The pricing was crazy high considering what we ordered. maybe this was due to it being New Years Day...

The food is always great. I have had their black bean chili with beef three times. I have also had calamari. My wife usually gets one of their combination plates with tamales or enchiladas. Everything tastes great. Whenever we are nearby we go there. The price is right, too. You may have to wait if you don't call ahead.

We love Peppers and enjoy their generous and fresh ingredients. The staff are friendly and the food is fresh and delicious. It's a great spot to visit on a weekend. We eat there at least once a month, or whenever we are visiting PG.

Great Mexican food on a great trip. Found this little gem on a side street, recommended by a local. Food and Margaritas were awesome.

My wife and I came in for dinner. She had the vegetarian tostada and I had carnitas enchilada. They both were so good! The place was packed and our wait time was only a couple minutes and this was a Monday night at 730pm. Large drink menu as well. You also get chips and 2 types of salsa right after... More

Met with a former client here for lunch. Casual dinning, good food, and above average service. I'll be back!
