Addicted to Tacos! We’re excited to bring a fun new spot to
the neighborhood where you can kick
back, relax and have a great time!
Can you imagine living in a world without
tacos? We can’t either.

From organic ingredients to fresh seafood,
these bold flavors are folded into amazing
dishes. In fact, you'll find many items on our menu were sourced right here in Georgia. We love this food and think you
will too!

Taquería might be our name, but tequila is
our game. We’re shaking things up with
hand-crafted margaritas and over 100 tequilas.

This was my first time going to Red Pepper, the restaurant is pretty noisy with a sports bar type atmosphere. The food and drinks were really good, I got the tacos and a margarita. I asked for a no salt margarita and received one with salt. However, the server was really nice and offered to correct it. We noticed that she didn't write our orders down and kept coming back to ask us what we ordered again. I also ordered the chirros which I didn't really like, they were not as sweet as I'm used to.

I had never been here before so I was looking forward to checking it out. I had a reservation but had to cancel it when I got to the restaurant because they informed me that they did not have enough waiters and it would be a long wait. I can't imagine that they would not have enough staff on a Thursday evening. I hope they're able to get it together for Cinco de Mayo!! I'm not likely to go back based on some of the other reviews.

I met three friends there for dinner. The service was not good. The waitress took forever to bring napkins etc. After ordering food my food order was not what I asked for. I went ahead and ate it because I was extremely hungry. I had to ask for things several times by our waitress. Waited about 20 minutes just to get napkins. Bravo appetizing plates after our dinner was served. Too late! My friends didn’t even want to leave a 10% tip. That’s how bad the service wise Sanchez

Bottomless Mimosas $15, they were good. The waitress kept coming by to make sure our glasses were full. I'm vegan and the veggie tacos were pretty good.

Perfect place for a work lunch with coworkers. I usually get the kale salad but I opted for the fiesta grilled salad as suggested by our server Maria. Very happy with my choice and glad my colleagues enjoyed as well!

Unfortunately, Red Pepper underwhelms. It’s incredibly expensive for Mexican food and the ingredients are mediocre. I personally won’t spend 14 dollars for two tacos and rice and beans. Tack on 12 dollars for a margarita that isn’t pure mix and you’re at 30 bucks for 2 tacos, rice and beans and a margarita. Oh, 6 dollars more if you want chips and salsa for the table :) if that’s what you want to spend your money on when going out for Mexican then please go ahead and consider red pepper.

Speedy service and it’s great to have an option where you can make a reservation for Mexican food but it’s loud and the floor under our table was very dirty and the food was just ok so we probably won’t come again.

Had dinner here the other night. Food was good, but service poor. The server was very pleasant but clearly overwhelmed and had too many tables to serve in differing parts of the restaurant.

My boyfriend and I went for brunch Sunday. We sat at the bar where we were greeted by a very sweet bartender who took great care of us. The food was delicious and the mimosas were truly bottomless!

I was getting some girlfriends together for a Mexican dinner to celebrate our friend's 50th birthday. Booked because there was available reservations on Open Table and positive reviews. This place did not disappoint...Kale shrimp taco was so delicious and the margaritas were made to perfection! We sat on the patio since it was a beautiful day. The birthday girl was happy, given a free birthday shot and accommodated by turning on the NBA playoffs. This first timer will definitely go back :-)

Made reservations on National Margarita Day in anticipation of it being busy. When we got to the restaurant, the hostess told us “they weren’t taking reservations because they didn’t know it was national margarita day and they only have 3 servers today.” Which is funny, considering all their social media channels and website were announcing it that day. Hostess tried to tell us we would have to wait 45 minutes and we told her that definitely wasn’t happening. We got seated and the waiter was stressed out and it took forever to get food and drinks and checks. There weren’t any special drink offerings either.... nothing out of their normal Thursday special of a $5 skinny margarita. Really lame. Not a great experience and probably won’t be going back. Upper management needs to get it together on “national” days like this.

First Mexican restaurant I've ever been to that didn't offer free chips and salsa. There are a lot of Mexican restaurants out there that do and that's enough for me to choose other restaurants.

Good food. My husband enjoys the tacos. I love their kale salad with shrimp. Kids love the kids fajitas and burritos. They are really large portions. Everything is fresh looking and tasting. The live music is a great, festive addition. I am not certain of the nights this is offered. The inside is pretty loud, so if the weather is good, we prefer the patio. Overall, our families favorite "Mexican".
