Quite surprised! On a business trip I ended up eating here two different nights and was pleased both evenings. The service was quick and friendly. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Much better than I was expecting for a chain restaurant. One evening I had the Seafood Enchiladas which were quite tasty. Pleasant surprise number 1. The next... More

The food wasn't bad, but not authentic Mexican. Typical Americanized Mexican food. Lots of cheese and mild flavorings and large portions. The service was good even on a busy night. If I lived near it I might return if I lived near it but I chose alternatives during my weeks stay in KC

Love the food at Jose Peppers. As far as I am concerned no ones enchiladas or queso can compare. Service is always good.

A nice place. Casual atmosphere, convenient location there at Midland Drive and 435, Just the place to address that thirst and have a great meal. We visit often. My daughter worked there for about a year and got us in the habit of stopping by. She is at another restaurant now, a further drive, so we still visit my friend... More

Good quest dip. Great service and atmosphere. Love the food. Bacon wrapped shrimp looked good but I didn't try. I'll be back though. 😊

The chips are very thin and hot sauce is super good service attentive. Hinny usually gets chicken burritos daughter and son in law split the seafood enchiladas and they bring them each a plate with one enchilada and the rice and beans and it's like a full meal! I have to take 1/2 of the taco salad with They have... More

The menu here is a step ahead of most Mexican restaurants. The food is very good. The waitstaff is prompt and knowledgeable. And parking is plentiful.

My friends & I love Jose Peppers for a relaxing, reasonably-priced Girls' Night Out! The queso dip is delicious as well as all their entrees and yummy margaritas. The service is great and wait-times nominal.

A local place that we don't always go to. It had been a while but it was as good a remembered. Chips were nice an light. Queso was free and great. Shrimp tacos and steak enchiladas was tasty. Probably my only complain was that the steak in the enchiladas were a bit chewy/tough/grisly than they should have been. Kids hamburger... More
