Reviews for Peppers Mexicali Cafe

I had fond memories of this place, being a kid and sharing chips and salsa with my mom. It set the standards for chips and salsa the rest of my life... Boy was I naive. I stopped in for a nostalgic visit a week ago, after 34 years, and it wasn't even up to par with the half decent Americanized Mexican restaurants I've been stuck with in the Midwest. The lemonade wasn't bad. I was just about to comment on how good it was as I looked up and saw our waiter in full review
Decent Mexican food if you're looking for your typical American nachos and margaritas. Their tacos are made with crispy FLOUR tortillas, so... you be the judge. It hit the spot. Lots of outdoor seating. They are well prepared for Covid: tables are spaced apart, hand sanitizer at the entrances, the staff wears gloves and masks, and they sanitize the tables and chairs after a party leaves. Friendly staff. We ordered chicken nachos - loaded with so many toppings. Good full review

Great food, great service, great drinks, and great location. . Loved this place chips and salsa were delicious. I had chili verde, spicy for a white boy but really good flavor and not stupid spicy. We did have to wait 30 min but they were very up front with us about the wait time and it is totally understandable with the Covid situation. Overall this is a great place to eat, drinks, let's just say, they were good and you get your bang for your buck.
