Tasty southwestern cuisine, delicious as the real thing. A little pricy, but worth it. Food always comes out hot and fresh! :)

Three different people suggested Pepper Sisters when I inquired about a restaurant for dinner. I was not disappointed. It's located downtown and has a lively, airy atmosphere. The cuisine is Southwest - but not typical Mexican fare - and they offer quite a few options...More
