Two of us went for lunch a little after 1:00pm and sat in the bar. It wasn't crowded at all but the service was not impressive. The server was polite but not very enthusiastic. The food was good and my dish was a large size for lunch which was nice. There was a salsa bar with a nice variety but... More

This pleasant Mexican restaurant gives you a choice of several different salsas, all with differing heat levels and textured making salsa eating an adventure. Sweet wait staff, extensive and tasty menu, a side of the restaurant with a bar and the other side for families, beautifully painted murals, on street parking.

My husband and I go out of our way to visit Pepper's. It's the best Mexican we've found in the South End. I particularly enjoy the Pollo a la Crema and the mojitos. The chips and salsa are the best!

Get place tucked in downtown Olympia. Good drinks, great food, and an amazing fresh salsa bar. Pricing is on par with this type of food. Place is always clean.

It's been four years since I've been here, but a few days ago some friends were raving about it, so I thought I'd give it another try. I ordered the same thing on this trip as I did four years ago. Guess what, nothing has changed. The mole sauce was way to salty and they forgot the sour cream and... More

It's Americanized food with beans and beef and tortilla. Quite ordinary tastes, ordinary menu, sweet service. Nothing noteworthy about this place except the location if visiting the Hands on Museum or other Olympia downtown events. Just one step up from Taco Bell.

Great salsa bar. Great salsas. Service was a bit slow and inaccurate. Ordered corn tortillas but received flour. Ordered medium rare flank steak, received well done. The steak could have been seared more. Also, the steak had more fat hanging off it then I would have preferred. Good flavors though. Worth a return trip and a second try.

This restaurant is a great spot to go, especially if you are gluten intolerant. The service is great and the atmosphere is great as well. The food is excellent and the portions are large. We enjoyed it all!

Used to go there every week, but must have gotten a new owner or something in the last year. Service and food quality went way downhill.
