Stopped in for lunch with a couple of friends while attend training at Eastfield College. Good thing there were only three of us because there are only 3 stools outside for "on site dining". I had the chicken tacos and they were terrific. It's all drive through except for these stools. During lunch there was a constant line of cars... More

We eat breakfast every Sunday at Pepppers, they have good breakfast tacos, large and full of whatever you want. We have dinner here sometimes as well and love the shrimp cocktail, we bring our own wine and they provide the wine glasses! Great tamales as well. Great prices, great service, the best in Mesquite!

You can tell that a Mexican restaurant is good when you see mexicans eating there . I am mexican and I eat at Peppers at least once a week . Some times I just pick up a torta or a dozen tamales . Great place for lunch or dinner .

the food here is really very good, but the atmosphere sucks. it is a tiny restaurant and seating is very limited and not very comfortable. service is pretty good. we really like all the food and the prices are ok.

The restaurant is more like a small diner, nothing fancy but is usually full. I don't eat there. I typically phone in an order for 1 or 2 pounds of barbacoa. This comes with my choice of either flour or corn tortillas, salsa, lime wedges, chopped onion and cilantro. They always package my to-go order very well; never had any... More

Peppers is one of those hole in the wall places that has the best food. they have no alcohol at all but you can bring your own in and they will even give you a wine glass or a beer glass, very very good food and great chips and salsa. And they serve breakfast all day on Saturday and Sunday.... More

We've been dining at Peppers for many years and the food is always the best Tex-Mex we've had. The chimichangas are like footballs and filled with chicken or beef, pica de gallo, cheese and covered with Ranch/Cheese sauce. Enough for two meals! The sour cream enchiladas are wonderful and the chips and sauce are good too. This is a family... More

Who'd guess that a tiny little Mexican food restaurant in a strip shopping mall with a name like Peppers would be so good? This really is a hidden gem. The food is really good. Tortas are the best in the universe. Huge! They are closed on Monday but there is a small taco stand in the nearby parking lot with... More

The place is small and it is not a stand alone building. The waiters are not of the best. But the food stands out. So that balances everything out.
