Our hotel recommended this place for good Mexican food. It really was fantastic and located in the historic district. We ordered queso to start and it was very creamy. I had the La Reina Margarita and instead of the shot it came with the darling little bottle of Grand Marnier. I'm sure it was equal to a shot but seemed... More

Enjoyed the food. We ordered fajitas and they were good. My only complaint is that waiter did not write down my order, pet peeve, when he walked away he said two chickens fajitas and I had ordered steak. I had to correct him. The restaurant was very clean and was not crowded

This place was amazing! We ordered drinks which were amazing and our meal was on the table in less than 10 minutes from the time we placed our order. Service was great, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the drinks were on par.

The service was really good. Our waiter was delightful and made the visit. The food was good too and the atmosphere (we ate on the patio) was most pleasing.

We really loved our dinner at Peppers. The empanada appetizer was incredibly delicious, with a variety of flavors. We ordered nachos as an entree (amazing) and camarones con chipotle (every drop of it was gone). The staff were friendly but rushed on a Friday night dinner service. Overall, we enjoyed this meal and will return next time we're in town.

Both the food and margaritas were plentiful. The guacamole was outstanding. Huge booths were comfy, service was good.

Although we weren't really hungry, we wanted to stop in because the patio area looked so inviting. We shared some delicious lobster nachos and fajita nachos; we were split between which was our favorite because both were so good. Our daughter has a sweet tooth so we also split the orange dreamsicle cake which wasn't a nice amount of orange... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful food and service we got there. The Chimichangas were great, the enchiladas were awesome and even the chips and salsa was good. I would highly recommend this place when visiting Amelia Island.
