I love the atmosphere and the service of this restaurant. I have been coming here for years and always have a great time. The margaritas are a MUST!

Good Mexican food with good variety. It is located in the downtown not too far from interstate. The service was excellent.

Had a good meal with my daughter. Food was fresh and tasty. I found it a little pricey. Not a lot of choices suitable for young children.

Awesome word of mouth and it did not disappoint. Margaritas on point. Food was top notch. It was a nice surprise that it wasn't your typical Mexican Restaurant. We will define tell be back when visiting again. Highly recommend great for family, couples and friends.

Really good Mexican food with an awesome vibe. The front staff at our hotel recommended The Pepper. I wasn't sure because the name seemed like a chain name. We drove into town and saw this cute little building with tin ceilings and a brick walls. We were there much earlier then we usually eat, but we hadn't had lunch and... More

Great food and service. Our waiter Glen was fantastic. Margaritas are out of this world. A cozy spot in downtown Plattsburgh and in the summer it has outdoor seating.

Stick with their margaritas. The food is nothing special. Too much grease and red sauce. Sit outside if you can: it's cramped inside. Everyone raves about this place. I've tried it five times...they never impress.

Really the only Mexican place in town. Good drink specials and black bean soup is excellent. Stay away from the fajitas...disappointing.
