“Nice garden atmosphere”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

We like this place. It has a garden atmosphere. It is air conditioned in summer and heated in winter and has a glass ceiling. They have very good dinner salads. I had the seafood salad and my husband had the chicken salad. They also have Mexico and other dishes. They also have appetizers and drinks. The margaritas, which we didn't have, are quite exotic, like a turquoise margarita, with a piece of turquoise in it. I'm not sure what that does to the flavor, but it adds to the cost. I think that one cost $12.95, about the same as the salads. They have house special desserts, like a special flan with cheesecake and a banana enchilada, which are easily big enough to share. We didn't have reservations, but we were only 2. It's clear they take reservations as there was one long table for about 12-14 set up.

“Way Overrated”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

Nice atmosphere and menu variety. Poor service, inconsistent and underwhelming food quality. We were told "Double Eagle/Peppers" was the best place in town --- way overrated!! We won't be back.

“Nice atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

This is in a garden setting, but covered. One enters, just like one would to the Double Eagle, but gets seated in this area, that has a lot of light and plants. The menu is varied, some Mexican and also salads that we like. One can probably eat there for two for under $30 with tip, if you get water to drink, which we do.

“Amazing Atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

We had lunch here on a sunny day and although this space in totally closed in you have the feeling you're setting in a sunlit plaza with a fountain in the middle. The food was good, not great but we went back to enjoy the building which has exquisite dining rooms off the plaza area. They do have an impressive list of craft beers.

“Always a good meal to be had there”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

This was my third or fourth visit to Pepper's and I have yet to have a bad meal there. I met two colleagues there and they enjoyed their dinners also. I had the Chicken Mesilla (a house specialty) and it was delicious.

The wait staff were attentive and helpful but not obtrusive.
