Peppers has been a Boone favorite for more than 40 years. It was a place I always looked forward to visiting every time I was in the area. My most recent 3 visits in March and April (I wanted to give it a fair shot)...More

Wow, what a surprising review. I have owned Pepper's for 43 years and over those years I have always purchased the best available ingredients for my restaurant. I have not reduced my portion size and never get complaints about skimpy portions. Our kitchen manager has...More

We have frequented the restaurant but our last visit was disappointing, and may be my last. We met new residents in the area for dinner before a movie, allowing an hour and half to have dinner. The wait staff was all but absent; our appetizer...More

Hi Kim. I appreciate your review. The pimento cheeseburger is a popular item here at Pepper's. I'll get our soup maker to add more clams and clam stock to the chowder. Thanks for the heads up. I'm really glad Evan did a good job for...More

It has been a while since we visited Peppers. Nearly every time, I have ordered the French Onion Soup. It has always been so good (they serve it with small scissors for cutting the cheese). My daughter was with me this time and ordered her...More

Hello Scott. I'm very sorry you didn't enjoy your meal at my restaurant. I checked with my kitchen manager and he assured me that we haven't changed the brand of mozzarella we have been using over the past few years. It is 100% mozzarella cheese...More

We recently ate here with some friends to celebrate a birthday. The chicken teriyaki was recommended and the description sounded great. The sandwich itself was pretty good but the teriyaki dipping sauce was not. It tasted like it was poured straight from the Kikkoman bottle....More
