Went there for dinner on a Saturday evening. Was told we would have to wait as they "were making salsa". Plenty of empty tables so we said we don't need salsa. They refused to seat us anyhow. After 15 minutes we left.

Visited this restaurant on 04/15/17. It is located in the Double Eagle on the Plaza, in historic Old Mesilla. When you enter the restaurant, be sure to pick up a free brochure which has the history of the building. We utilized the brochure & visited each room listed/described. It was very interesting & fun! The building & furnishings are very... More

Cool interior of the restaurant in this old building. The food was varied; we had salmon, chicken fried steak, Mesilla chicken and chipotle chicken and gnocchi. Everything was good.

We had dinner here. Oh my goodness! First off - the building is stunning. Use the pamphlet to walk around and explore. It just an amazing place - lots of history and a great way to be entertained as you wait for your meal. The service was perfect! Our waitress was great - very attentive, answered all our questions, and... More

Used to love it here. Margaritas are at least still off the hook!!! Food used to be good too but between the day old rice, roach on the table, nasty water, & sorry enchiladas- I'm not coming back anytime soon. Must be new management - we've been coming here for 10 years and never had a worse experience. Heartbroken. Sad... More

It is a fun place with great service in the same building as the Double Eagle. The food was very good. However, we just came from the cattlemen's in El Paso the day before soooooooooooo, you can't seem to compare with that. My wife had a chicken salad which she loved. I had a steak. Which was good. Then came... More

Peppers is in the same building as the Double Eagle, but at a lower price. Go there for excellent chili rellanos and chicken fajitas. Beautiful setting; you think you are in old Mexico. Drinks are awesome especially the margaritas.

If you want to try non traditional Mexican food, eat at this restaurant. The offerings sound odd, but the execution is outstanding. Even the chips and salsa were the best I have ever tasted. Many types of margaritas, but stick with their standard. Steaks are also available. The decor is marvelous. Take time to explore the various dining rooms. Peppers... More

My husband and I had a wonderful meal at Peppers. Located inside the same historic building that houses the Double Eagle, Peppers is the casual cousin. We ate our meal in a well-lit, enclosed courtyard (that was formerly a corral for the animals of the original owners.) It is a warm and engaging atmosphere that has small formal dining rooms...
