Stopped in after the Little Car Show between Lunch and Dinner. Got a table right away! The House Margarita was very good, with a freshly made taste. I had two enchiladas, one chicken and one mushroom artichoke, that both were excellent. I would definitely eat...More

We live in Los Angeles and so we are very familiar and spoiled by an excellent Mexican selection. Peppers wasn't bad. Spicy 🌶 is available though and there isn't much else with kick in this area. Homemade tortillas were excellent. Fairly basic ambiance and menu.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants we have ever eaten in. We have never had a bad meal. It is crowded so expect a wait if you don't have reservations. It is worth the wait though if you've forgotten to call ahead.

Peppers has been around for a long time and for good reason. It is a local favorite. The service and food is always great.

Went here for dinner with locals. Great service. Restaurant was very noisy when all tables were occupied, but quieted a little when it cleared out a bit. Food was good but not great, typical Mexican.

Very surprised by a few lukewarm reviews. Service was friendly and efficient. Very busy during dinner so go early, leave your name and walk to the beach. Great margaritas, chili relleno (sp?), shredded beef tacos, mole sauce. We were very happy and enjoyed our dinner...More

Went here for a late lunch with my girlfriend last May. As huge Mexicali fans we were expecting a treat based on the reviews. I'm not sure if we caught these guys in an off-moment, but the service was not very responsive even though the...More
