It saddens me to write this review, but our family will never eat there again. The food was delicious and the server was exceptional but our son with celiac had a horrible reaction. He ordered carefully but he still got sick. The server was great and told him not to eat the chips & salsa, he did not (they do not have a designated fryer). Unfortunately, the server also assured us tacos were safe with corn tortillas, not true. His plate appeared GF, but the gluten reaction was severe. It started 60-90 minutes after lunch and there’s not a doubt in our minds he was given gluten. Tacos, beans, and rice… not sure where they messed up? Mexican food is usually our family safe go to option, not Peppers. If someone in your party has celiac, please go somewhere else.

Scott, our server, was amazing at checking and making sure that my items were GF. Everything was fresh and amazing. Will definitely be coming back.
