We ate there in Late May on a Sunday. When we got there it wasn't very crowded. We saw a lot of mixed reviews online about it, but decided to try it anyway since we had a $25 restaurant voucher for it. There were four...More

I never write bad reviews but I feel it is my civic duty to warn others of this place. My husband and I had a late lunch here yesterday. The service was terrible. Our waitress was friendly, for the most part, when we saw her;...More

We enjoyed Peppers Mexican Grill and Cantina for Mother's Day dinner. The Fajitas were excellent. They regularly have dinner specials that are a great deal. The drinks and food are great.

Solid Mexican, so fast! The meat is very high quality. Chicken is very thin and tender. Fajitas perfect. The salsa is smoothe and simple. I love it. Cheap express lunch meals, and great two for one modelo! The decor is gorgeous, but par for Gainesville.

The food was good--enjoyed our burritos with beans and rice. The tortilla chips were fair, and we were only given one type of salsa with it, although there were bottles of hot sauce on the table. The server was pretty morose, and he was tuned...More

Best salsa ever! Great Mexican food and full bar. Close to hotels and I-75 and shopping. Quiet enough to talk and enjoy company.
