Come to the bar with Joanie and enjoy the best margaritas and service you could ever imagine. Don’t wait on a table just go sit at the bar! You’ll be sure to laugh and have fun!

Every time I come to Peppers I end up ordering the Peppers loaded nachos dish. They load it up with chips, meats and toppings. Great to share with a couple people and drink it down with their signature margarita! Great outdoor area right on Centre...More
