we came to this restaurant after a funeral. 25 of us, no reservations, and we were seated right away, served quickly, and treated kindly.

We had brunch with family here on Easter Sunday. They had menus for US$11.99 with free champagne or orange juice up to 3 refills. Service was friendly, ambiance was cozy and place was good for family get togethers. Servings were generous and food was OK. The chips and salsa were unlimited. Nice!

We went back to Peppers Mexican Restaurant to an evening of Mexican food and conversation. We got a booth, but the noise level was very high. It made conversation difficult - even in a booth. The food was OK. Service very good. Prices were pretty high for Mexican food.

Attended a 70th birthday at Peppers over the weekend. There were 45 attendees and Peppers did an amazing job of serving, keeping orders straight even when people were moving around. Grandkids felt as equally well served as the adults. Juan kept everything going and the ritas flowing, which, by the way, were good ones. I had never been here before... More

Visted this restaurant with family and ate in the bar for lunch. First batch of chips were okay but when they refilled they were warm and crunchy. Lunch specials were very big portions and a great price. Many "locals" were at the bar and the servers kept our chip bowl and drinks topped up. It was an early lunch so... More

We've been going to Pepper's for years. It has always had good food and good, friendly service. However, we miss Rico, our favorite waiter. Our 2-year-old grandson loves throwing pennies into the wishing well, located inside the restaurant.

Peppers Restaurant is adjacent to Santa Anita Race Track and a lively place to enjoy a good Mexican dinner. I like to eat iin the bar area where TV's line the walls and offer viewing of a variety of sporting events including horse racing.

First time at Peppers and I found the food excellent and serving size huge. Best part of the visit was my server Juan who was fast, efficient and pleasant. I'll come back again when I visit next year.
