I am absolutely obsessed with the grinders and the chip sauce at this place! Every time I come through town after graduating UND I always make an effort to stop and grab something to eat. This place never disappoints!!!

The Red Pepper is a staple restaurant of Grand Forks. I came back to visit after almost 10 years. The food is still great, service friendly and prices reasonable. Try everything. All of it. Tacos, grinders and garbage plate. I'm going to miss it!
