Passing through Talle heading to Niceville, we found this restaurant on Foursquare. I called my daughter who lives in Tallahassee, she knew the area but had not tried this place, I told her we'll check it out. The salsa was fresh and authentic, got the 2 for 1 frozen lime margarita, great margaritas they are not sugary and the second... More

I've been craving good, authentic Mexican food for months and I finally found it here at Peppers! A couple weeks ago I drove into Tallahassee (I live 90 minutes away) and tried Cabo's Mexican restaurant. It was soooo disappointing. I can't believe that Pepper's isn't rated higher than Cabo's on here!!! I'm a Mexican food snob and I can't eat... More

I went to peppers which is not my usual Mexican place mostly because I have gone to the location on capital circle and was very unimpressed. The restaurant where we were going to eat was closed on Sunday so we popped right in there as it was just past Cinco de Mayo and I had missed eating Mexican food completely.... More

I won't be back to dine at Pepper's. There was very little flavor in the enchilada suizas I ate. The chips were rather thick and stale and the salsa was nothing to write home about. The service was very inattentive, unfriendly and made me want to head as quickly as possible to El Jalisco near Kerry Forest Pkwy, where the... More

We go to Pepper's when we're by it at lunch time and want Mexican food. The people are nice, the lunch specials are good and priced well, it is clean and well lit. I like the chicken quesadilla best. They have good beans and rice. The chips come out crisp and warm and the salsa is mild. If you want... More

We met at Peppers last night for a soccer meeting. We used the back room to review recent game footage and discuss tactics going forward. Their were players, parents, and coaches. The service was efficient and the food was good. I had a vegetarian quesadilla, my husband had nachos, and my son had a burrito. We were all pleased with... More

My wife and I recently tried Pepper's just south of the Village Commons Shopping Center. It was a Saturday night and we arrived at 7:00. They were not really crowded and we were seated by the windows (our request) quickly. Immediately, two or three men visited our table (who was to be our waiter?) and placed chips and salsa and...

Stopped in for a quick lunch. The vegetarian nachos were excellent and I had enough left overs for a second meal. I wish we had a Pepper's at home.

We go to the peppers on the Northeast side of town about once a month. The quality of the food is consistently good. Fast service. Their queso dip is very good. I usually get tacos or the burrito supreme. Very good.

Went here a work lunch and had the back (really just left side of the restaurant) for our 20+ person party. Service was good, esp given the size of the people being served. Had the fajita taco salad (steak) and it was quite delicious. Other coworkers were quite happy as well.
