Best Margaritas in the Portland area!.
Peppers is an oddity. It's a hole in the wall Mexican joint that manages to stand out among thousands of medeocre Mexican restaurants in the Portland area. If you are in Hillsboro it is highy recommended. This place is small, and ALWAYS packed, so be prepared to wait for a table. That being said the service is speedy, so it shouldn't take long. I would recommend sitting in the bar for a more quiet meal, as the restaurant section of the place is packed with kids and families. It has more of a fast food restaurant dining room feel, whereas the bar is more like a little cafe. But its a good place to go with kids. The food is authentic and divine, which is strange because the place isn't much to look at from the outside. The margaritas are well worth the trip for, and are served in three sizes, big, bigger and HUGE. They make some great specialty margaritas, I like the Chambourg Marg, which is sweet and tangy all at once. They make 'em strong here so make sure you arrive thirsty!
The parking lot is small and cramped and only accessable from one side of the street. The bathroom is way in back and you half to walk all the way down through the kitchen and dishwashing area to get to it.
Good Food, Great Value.
Great Food, Cheap.
Get the chicken soft tacos, with only chicken, lime, cilantro and onion, on soft corn homemade tortilla, about $1 each. Put the green salsa on them. Sooo good.
Or get the house special, which is slab-o fajita steak, big batter-fried cheese-stuffed pepper, 2-crispy chicken tacos, and 2 spicy crispy chicken tacos, with separate pile of avocado, tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and a ton of soft, homemade corn tortillas. So good, and enough for 2-3 people. About $6.
Some neighborhood toughs in there, but also nice families too. The soccer game is all in Spanish, in all rooms.
