“Great food. Poor service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013 via mobile

This is a UNC staple. Great food but since they moved locations it lost its charm. One thing it did not lose, its poor and slow service.

“love Pepper's Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Have heard a rumor that Pepper's Pizza on Franklin St. will be closing; and that a chain 'Waffle House' will be replacing it. That will be a sad day for Carolina. We already have a local waffle place 'Ye Olde Waffle House' and while that gets crowded, it suffices.
Went downtown to a movie, and decided to see if Pepper's was still open - YES.
You can order slices, or a whole pizza, with toppings to your taste.

I'm fussy about pizza crust - like it thin, but not cardboard tasting - and marinara sauce. Pepper's is by far my favorite in Chapel Hill. I will hate to see it go. Salads are always fresh and crisp too.

Go now - in case you can't later!

“Studenty pizza place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012 via mobile

UNC students abound here, but it's not an amazing place - it's a nice, fun restaurant. People have commented on the service, which we found charming and obliging. The pizza is thin-crust and inexpensive. Very limited drinks menu, but it's not a place to booze - there are many fun bars in the area.

“Great Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

I am a picky pizza eater. My favorite food is pizza, but I go out for pizza infrequently, because I am always disappointed. I went to Pepper's Pizza three times in one week! I liked their pizza. The restruant is a hole in the wall, but the price is right and the pizza is good.

“Franklin Street landmark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

Best fresh salad in town. Order your pizza "well done" for a crispier crust.
Look past the waiters' appearance, the Pepper's staff has a work ethic and service standard rarely found in restaurants today.
