The pizza was excellent, but they are no longer in business. I'm sorry, but I'm only reviewing this so no one tries to visit Pepper's while in Chapel Hill and get disappointed when they arrive.

Back in my UNC grad school days, this was a favorite lunch or dinner joint. Today, Pepper's Pizza is still an iconic, if not punk rock-ish, restaurant find. While the restaurant has expanded, there remains the commitment to kitchen staff with purple hair and multiple...More

Not very clean and the pizza is just mediocre. Perhaps if I had not gotten a "fancy slice" and stuck with pepperoni or sausage it might have been better?

An institution on Franklin St. A newer location but the pizza is as good as ever.

Pepper's may not be anything super special to look at, but if you want great pizza and calzone, this is the place! They also had a really interesting selection of pizzas - and almost all were available by the SLICE, which was fantastic, since my...More
