Peppers Mex - Tallahassee
Okay, Tallytown Hounds, Ashby "Never-Ate-At-A-Buffet-I-Didn't-Like-Better Than Liams" Stiff, just gave Peppers toques. Who's been there? And being a university town, open your blue books and "compare and contrast" versus La Hacienda II, San Miguel, La Fiesta, et.al..
So do we wait in line to try this place? Or is there a line to try this place?
At the prodding of Mrs. Crew, we gave the place a takeout try. Not too crowded at 5:30 on a Sunday, but as early birds were leaving the families atrted to arrive. Reasonable fast on wait.
Food was above average and above expectations. Cammarones a Mojo y Aji were flavorful. Mole Poblano had a chocolatey tinge to it ( I've had it taste burned at other places). Chile Relleno was passable but not fancy. Salsa was tasty. And we liked the choice of corn vs flour tortillas. I think they use the real masa harina so they aren't heavy.
Decor wasn't fancy. Two flat screens showing two different soccer games.
Tables outside are East facing so you're not dealing with the afternoon sun.
So a good alt choice for take out. I'd say 2.5 toques. But for Tallahassee, a rather good choice.
