Our first time there....after an afternoon of shopping ( & a day off together) decided to get a cocktail & and appetizer. My margarita was yummy! But for my partner it was a different story. He ordere...d a Bloody Mary but the male bartender said they were out of their home made mix, but did not offer him or ask him if he wanted something else to drink. The bartender was not helpful at all. We ordered chips & salsa & neither were fresh...we could not eat them at all. We left feeling disappointed & thirsty.... See More

We have never had a bad meal or margarita at this place, we usually go every Friday during the year, mostly for the margaritas but also the food. Also, when the service is always good and never waited..., nachos and drinks are brought to the table as soon as we are seated. Great place See More

The service was horrible . Went in at 1 pm 10-5-2017. Did not get our food till 1:50. Some people came in after us got their food before us and were almost done eating before we got ours. The waitress... was nice but didn't offer any explanation . I will go back and give a second chance only because the food was very good! See More

Excellent margaritas (the Rolls Royce is my favorite), amazing food (I recommend the chicken and mole rojo enchilada with black beans) and always wonderful service! I wish I could give a ten star rating!!

The food and margaritas are excellent. Only complaint is the bathrooms. I feel if you asked your female customers, they would prefer not to share the bathroom with the men. The floors were pretty gros...s by the end of the night, and toilet seats left up, for the ladies to put down is disgusting See More

great drinks...
After ordering almost 2 HOURS to get our meal 😓
No explanation for the delay
As we were getting ready to leave they said food was plated. Buy this time my wife no longer wanted to eat. Food was hot and tasted fine.
I gave them 3 stars because
1 we were seated with in the time estimate they gave us
2 appetizers came out in a readable and were tasty
3 they did not charge us for the meal . They made up for the what ever screw up they had in the kitchen.

I would go back for drinks and appetizers.

We love the pepper! This recent time we went in super late on a Friday, almost every table had people just ordering food. There was only one waitress on at that point because they were closing in less... than an hour. The server did an awesome job handling every table alone and the food was perfect. We were genuinely impressed given that it was so close to closing ! See More

Margaritas like others have said are excellent .Salsa was too bland however. Guacamole was really good.Chips would be better if warmed.
Wait for food was long considering there was no one else waiting... for food as we were only one of 3 tables occupied and they were eating. Chili rellano flavor was really good.Grilled salad was different and delish - added shrimp to that. No ground beef which I think is tough especially with kids.I would eat there again and try some other dishes. See More

Was very disappointed last night. My husband and I have always enjoyed it at the Pepper but we hadn't been in months. We waited at least 5 minutes before anyone even acknowledged we were there. Altho...ugh our waiter was very nice, service was super slow. We waited 45 minutes for an order of nachos and enchiladas. The nachos were ok but the enchiladas looked like an indistinguishable blob of melted cheese and they were WAY overcooked. Also the seasoning was not distributed well and concentrated in pockets. Of course the margaritas and salsa were great. We won't be back anytime soon. See More

We had dinner at The Pepper over a month ago. I ended up with severe food poisoning from heavily salted beef that I had there, that was no good. I made the owner aware of the situation through a priv...ate message. He informed me that he would be sending me a refund check for our dinner and he apologized. After a month with no refund check I decided to send him another message. Then he decided instead of the refund check, to mail me a gift certificate. What a joke do you honestly think we want to eat there ever again ?!?!? See More

Great service, great food, great margaritas - highly recommend! Always a wait since the space is small but so worth it! Has a bar and in the summer, outside seating!

Best margaritas around...or maybe anywhere! The sautéed calamari and jalapeño margarita are ordered 100% of the time we visit! Growing up in northern NJ and in and around NYC, I feel like I have enj...oyed some very good, authentic Mexican food. I never thought my favorite would end up being in Plattsburgh! See More

We came in with a big group. Heather did a great job serving us and the food was great. The specials had a flatbread pizza that was delicious and so was the fire appetizer. Even had my first jalapeño ...margarita. See More
