Person at the counter was rather rude. Ordered at the counter, was told 15-20 minutes. Almost 25 minutes later I went in and the food wasn't ready. Counter person demanded a "last 4 number" even though i ordered in person with that person.Food was nothing special. Carnitas were dry, rice was bland. Steak fajitas were slightly better but not by much. Seemed like no spices or herbs were used. I may be spoiled coming up from South Florida, but definitely not worth the $40+!

Great food lots if choices and great drink specials.


Our experience was 5* as usual. We always enjoy our meals & drinks at Peppers! Everything on the Menu is great tasting, freshly prepared, & served with a smile.

Great Ceviche...service was good and the place was packed on a Sunday

The atmosphere was nice and the hospitality was good. The food seemed good but I didn't finish it more than a couple bites because I found thin, metal bristles in my burrito and salsa such as from a cleaning brush. I took a picture of the metal bits in my salsa (on the edge). Aside from the metal, it was standard good.

LOVE the chicken fajitas and salsa. Try putting lemon juice on the chicken and then dipping it in the salsa. Sweet tea and frozen strawberry margaritas are extremely good also.

Food an food prices were good. Service was Slooow. Waited 15 min to get a refill of soda. Don't order the drinks. Way over priced for pre-made drinks. Was charged 15.99 for a frozen margarita that was weak. Would come back for the food but not the drinks

The best and most flavorful food of all the MX restaurants in Gainesville!

Why would anyone get fast food when this place is so convenient and does takeout and delivery! Not only that, it's authentic and the atmosphere is amazing!!!

Been here a few times and the food is pretty good. This time I got their chicken chimichanga and I am a huge fan! The service is typically a bit slow from my experience but overall worth the price.

This place is great and worth every penny. I had carry out so I can’t speak too much on the service, but my food was ready very fast, within 10-15 minutes after ordering. Now the food is soo good. I had a chicken meal (I don’t remember which one exactly) with rice and beans. Everything was delicious and made me feel like I was eating real homemade food. I highly recommend.
